Stretched and proportioned 32 Hustler which that boat was taken from a Signature hull

Rides nice in the rough stuff. Had ours on Lake Michigan for 3 years and loved it. Mine had mild power, but handled nice with no funny issues.

The 40 is not a stretched 32. It was an all new Fiore design. It was Hustler's 1st stepped hull, unlike the 32 which is a traditional deep V with a notched transom.

Incorrect.... Paul Fiore with the help of Mark Shneff of Activator went out to design a new 40. They started with the 32 hull and actually bolted the rear 8' of another 32 together. Since the front section of the rear 8' was too wide to fasten to the transom of the 32' they slid it up to the wider part of the transom where it would fit and got the step by accident. They threw a couple of outboards on the hull with no deck and went and tested it and were impressed with what they came up with and how well it performed. That in a nut shell is how and where the 40 came from and the beginning of the step hull.

Several years ago I had the great pleasure of riding in an OSO member's 40 with trip 650s. We were on Lake Lewisville north of Dallas. It was in October and a norther had hit early. The wind was blowing 30-35mph and the lake was whipped up to 3-4s. We ran over 100 in that stuff and the boat never did anything wrong.

This was the first big V I had ridden in and I never felt uncomfortable at any time. The weight of the boat(12,000lbs per the owner) made a big difference in crushing the swells. The gunnel height was almost at my shoulder level when I stood, giving me a very secure feel at all times.

Great boat, would love to own one like it.
