I bet it does, but
we had a 34sf fountain trips try to sneak up on us getting on plane , we were in a AT33 525s, it was a joke we weren't trying and we left them in the dust, you guys with your trips and quads are nice fishing boats, tubing boats . but thats about it. I seen you guys going after each other on the fishing site about racing each other in cc boats fountain and yellowfin you guys are ruthless , but I have never seen a cc win over sportboat. I ran against a yellow scarb 26 or 29 back in 05 going to cape cod canal they had twin 275s or 300s I just played with them and on the other side of the canal they had to turn around and go back cause they were slamming in to the waves I just cracked the throttles and laughed as I went to onset. oh I would say your fountain over the yellowfin. later

Same here Artie, but it was that guy with the 38 Fountain with the Quad 300xs' (fastest cc kilo thing) on the NYC poker run when we were running the Gladiator. Bye bye!!!!

92 with out any prop testing..X is too low, gets up on plane way too easy..I say raise it 1/2" good for 3 mph...Im judging this on how my 37 AT reacted. Very nice boat. Jeff

Of course the 35 lightning is going to be the fastest ... how can you even compare a ~32 foot boat to a true 39 or 40+ footer ?

The boats being compared here are apples to oranges anyway, different uses for different buyers.

Also, I think the #'s stated for the 42pr with 525's are exaggerated a bit.

There are a lot of new Hustler that run overseas. I sold more than two dozens during the last three years.
