I personally like both boats alot and would be honored to own either. I would probably get the Hustler and save some money over the Cigarette for the lake. I guess it would also depend on how good a deal you could get for either boat.

both great. both perform well. i may be wrong but my feeling is hustler would be a bit faster. 92 with 525s is possible as 500s regularly took that boat to 88 and even 90 in right conditions (low fuel load, 2 people, cool NY weather in say february...)

cigarette will always be a cigarette but i feel hustler has more modern lines. the front deck has a very nice flowing design and i like the integrated swim platform. but it's all about taste at this point: traditional, square look vs. more modern, flowing lines.

anyway, you're lucky to be in this position. i don't think you can go wrong with either of those.

I can't speak for the Top gun as I have never owned one. I can tell you that my Slingshot has been a great boat. I would also say that 92mph w/525's sounds pretty close. Both are very nice boats in my opinion. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the Hustler.

Personally, I'm a Cig fan, but for the lake I would probably go with the Hustler.

I driven both. For the lakes and rivers it would be Hustler. Bay's and Ocean Cigarette all the way.

you'll need 625 Zul's to run 92 in a T/S Gun.
