Hustler 34 is in my opinion not a good riding boat. the Donzi will be solid and the fountain not as good a ride due to length really smaller but still safer than the hustler.

Depends on what you are doing with the boat. I raced a 35 Fountain today in my 38 Fountain and we were both running 100 plus in a lot of chop (1-2s) in Charlotte at Lake Norman. The 35 is a great boat, it had 525s staggered. Matthew Smith has an old boat of mine, a 2004 35 with side by side 525s that is an awesome boat, ran 90. Beautiful yellow sides with checkerboard graphics. Donzi will probably ride better but will be slower.

Yes I goung to buy the one I like best,they all have diffrent features I like,so I guess it will be up to the best deal I can get
will be a big factor.But the fountain owner is a good friend on mine and I know the boat and that is a big plus.And he just wants me to take over pyments.But do like to here others input, thanks to all.

Of the choices you posted, I'd go with the Fountain if you don't mind throttling with your left hand. IMO, a lefty throttle is very awkward... I'm a righty.

Other than that, I'd continue the search until I found the right boat for 'me' with 525's+, had it sea trialed and fully surveyed.

I am in agreement with George....Conehead builds a hell of a boat. So do the rest....
