I was the Hustler dealer here back in 1994. They sent out all their interiors to two local, (to them), upholstery shops. The boats they sent me for the boat shows were an embarrassment. Thank God they got their act together in that department.
I do believe the 1997 and later boats have the McLeod interiors.

My dream boat to this day is a 388 Slingshot w/triple Bulldogs.

Rob,
One of the trip Slingshots was here in KY. They sold it and I'm not sure where it went. It was tight, but also fast and reliable.

Rob-There was a triple Slingshot (Triple Shot??) at one of the Thousand Islands poker runs in 2003. I think I have a picture of it but not with the hatch up. I also think it's mentioned in one of those NYC Poker Run videos I sent to you. Later.... Lou

Do you guys know if they ever did one with triple Bulldogs?
I would order mine with a small cockpit and 1/4 cabin. No toilet.

No Toilet You mean there will only be hard legs on your boat


The girls like my Toilet even with the spy cam

Lou I don't think this one is the triple shot . Dean this guy lives in South La.I think it came from your area. It had ac also .1998. I think he told me did a little over 100.

Just messing with ya Ed

I say no toilet because we never used the one in the 40' and I was constantly replacing the broken plastic base under the porcelain bowl.

My next boat will be no-frills, just like a competition boat.

Rob,
That is probably the same boat.
100mph sounds about right.

My '96 32 Hustler has the McLeod interior. But, I've seen '95's that didn't.
