Clarification: I can't help you with transport other than to point you towards some of the freight brokers we use. I'm just a customer, not a supplier.

I seen it now. Thanks. Nice boat. But the 383 Formulas are indeed to heavy. Hustlers are a lot lighter, so the 38' is ok.

weight seems pretty average to me for a 35' pleasure boat at around 8600# dry. For 3 more feet, the 382's are quite a bit heavier though.

the 38 Formula is about 1000 lbs heavier than the 35 and 1500 more than the Hustler 388. With the Formula, that weight isn't in the nose, it's in the center of the boat.

Go with the Hustler. Great ride, lot's of room and size for size and power for power it's the fastest!

you can almost swing a brand new leftover 2007 Fountain executioner for the price range you are in. That buys you a high 70's boat with a cabin and warranty.

there's a couple on boattrader, I think 139k was the number I saw.

Did you talk to James Barton? ...Overactive is a 2002 37AT in great condition. Next to Cig, the AT is the best all around performer and it has the biggest cabin in 90mph perf. boat. His boat was for sale just a bit ago.
Depends what you want...but AT has best all around features for the money.

No.. but I would like to. I don't know James. please have him contact me or ?? AT's are definitely in the running. I haven't seen any in the range I'm looking for 37', $100,000+
I did look at a 37. I'm thinking. needs some TLC.

Saw a 28' slingshot today. Nice, but need clearcoat repair and some engine work, steel trailer. How is the clearcoat could be repaired if it's pealing off.??
