my honest opinion is that first of all the 38 fountain is really 35. i'm not going to argue the fountain with same power and drives is faster but what 5 mph more. the hustler is a lot nice looking (my 002) and holds resale a lot better then fountain. looks a lot but a lot nicer then fountain.

the build on the hustler is far superior,... Vacum bagging with tri axial & bi axial rovings carbon fiber & kevlar complete in mold curing. look at the bottom of both boats you will see the the difference. also you have top of the line Mc Leod interior.much larger cabin. also take a look under the dash @ the rigging. the hustler is neat, no wires flopping everywhere. last the Hustler customer service is great. I still say the Hustler is faster also. I liked the Fountain but no way it compares to a Hustler. Jeff

I would go with the hustler for all of the reason mentiond above by the hustler owners. I looked at both boats as well before I decided on the hustler ( coming out of a fountain). Other than that the hustler is just a bigger boat all around. Also in 2000 the fountain didnt have the ultra ventilated hull therefore the hustler should be faster.
Just my opinion also.

P.S The hustlers run great with the whipples and they look really cool!!!

I checked out all boats at the Miami boat show in 2000. Fell in love with the Slingshot. with 500`s was 250k way out of my range.
