hustler has bravos, my fountain has trs's. Not sure if its an upgrade in rough water going from 10 meter to a 32 hustler. Dont want to get a justler and 1/2 through the season feel like i made a mistake because the fountain was smoother/handled better in choppy conditions

Drive the boat with him. He's doing something wrong or the entire subfloor areas are all full of water.

ID go for a ride in it and see for yourself.

On thing is for sure, the huster has a much higher freeboard which tends to make for a drier and safer feeling ride in rough water..

In the 80s the 32 Hustlers were holding National Titles for Offshore Racing. Paul Fiore did one heck of a job building these boats. I have rode in a few 32s and they run solid.

I actually like the way the 37 OL rode, I actually prefer it over the 39, less of a drivers boat. NOW, the 42 is way different, that's a great boat. Looking to get a good ride in some serious water on the 46 to do a good comparision between the 42 and 46.

Yup, he lives down the river from our marina. These days he sports a 110 ft. Bennetti and a 28 Skater and a few other boats....one of which was a 50ft Sport Fish he bought his father.

The boat was built with Bravo's and now it has #5's on it and it's located in Long Island. BUT, the design for the 37 OL really came from the 40' Hustler ala the 32' Hustler.

I believe the 32' Hustler came from the Magnum bottom if I'm not mistaken...

Fountain came from the signature....

Can anyone confirm?

The 32 is not a heavy boat, and it does not take big power to run them. A number of these in the 80's were set-up with surface drives, which was a very fast package. You may be looking at a 40 Fiore, but with 1100's should be faster than mid 60's.
