Thumbs up Attn. Hustler 388 Slingshot owners

I'm SERIOUSLY looking at a couple of Slingshots that are for sale, and I'm just looking for input from present/past Slingshot owners. What you like, what you don't about the 388.
Thanks,
Dean

I have a GOOD friend here on Lake George that has one with 500's with blowers for sale. The boat is FRESH WATER ONLY and HUNG in a boat house. Has NEVER seen the weather. It has an IMMACULATE trailer as well. If you want the info let me know. I will give you his numbers. He is stepping UP!

Shane,
What yr?, do you know? What drives? How fast with the blowers? I'm a little hesitant about HP500's with blowers, BUT if the deal is good enough, who knows. Sure, please send info.
Thanks,
MD

Dean,

I have looked at the Hustler 388 and they are very cool boats.
my next boat will be either a 34 Cheeta or 35 Fountain. Maybe the 388?

Hi Dean,

Have a friend that has a 1998 Slingshot with 500hp's with 50 hours on it, no joke boat is in excellent, excellent condition. We always make fun of him because he never gets on it, I think he's a little afraid but thats ok too. The guy obviously never takes it out, real nice shape. Let me know if you want his number. Boat runs 80-82 mph.


Good luck,


zzie

I second what Shane says. This boat is an "11" It runs 108 all day long. And he wants to step up to an Outerlimits.

Too Old,
It would definitely make me a Happy guy! I really like the looks/lines of the Slingshot, the performance, and the construction, but we'll see how all these deals turn out. Besides, I'm the happpiest, nicest guy I know! What's up with the Sonic? I swear, it's hard to keep up with you and which boat you own this week!!!

Slingshot,
Did you just buy your Slingshot from Randy Sweers? It looks like a real nice rig. How do you like it offshore? What do you pull it with?
