Luv ya Wassie, all the same.

Fountain owners are being backed into a corner here. We're circling the wagons. Giving NO quarter.

We have been looking at both boats also, its a toss up. I personally like the way Fountain looks over the Hustler, however the Hustler is a bigger boat. Rigging is about the same, (an exta tie here and there is no diff). The ones I looked at the cabin was more plush in the Fountain. But the Hustler seemed to have more room in the cockpit? Also just so were clear the Hustler has a integrated platform also, so its really 36-37'

Take both out and see what you feel more comfortable in.

On a side note, anyone bashing either of these boats is just showing their lack of knowledge. Both are High quality machines.

Good point Will, But the Hustler does not include the intergated swim platform in there measurement. It is 38 feet to the back of the transom. Fountain does include it on both ends the platform and the beak.

They try comparing them, but they are different. And always will be. It's like comparing apples to oranges. It's true that they are both fruit, but they taste totally different.

It's the same thing as those that know nothing about boats calling a Fountain, Hustler, etc a "cigarette boat".

let me explain it this way....their is 15 Fountains to every one Hustler made..... if not more ...........so in the long run..thier would be alot more used Fountains than Hustlers. so their is a pretty good chance ....that their will always be more Fountains for sale
