Luci,
You now own the all white w/blue interior 37 OL? I believe Scott L and maybe K B were the 1st ones to own that boat?
Wasn't that hull # 1? If so, I remember that being launched in Brick for the 1st time. You don't have a heavy boat there at all. I was very impressed at how high it floated. Actually, at rest, the waterline was at the bottom of the one and only step.

BTW, How long you been in Jersey?
I have never heard anyone say, "going up the Jersey Shore"
It's always, "Going down the Shore" Even after you have arrived, "You're down the Shore"

Yes that's the one. I've spoken with Scott a few times about it. I've been here since'79, a good ole Brooklyn girl. Living by Sandy Hook I'm at the Shore. So to me it going down to Pt Pleasant, and back up the Shore home. The perk of living at the beginning of the Jersey Shoreline.

I've wanted a Fountain for years, finally got one & LOVE IT! Hustler does make an awesome boat but are priced out of most of our price range. Fountain makes a quality and fast boat for a good price in comparison. Theres no doubt that if I win the lottery I'd look at a Hustler or Outerlimits, but I'm not near old enough or retired to win that lottery yet so for now FOUNTAIN IT IS!!!

Fountain is not in the same line as the Hustler, you would have a better comparison with Fountain too Formula.

Hustler is more of a custom boat manufacture. A 388 Hustler is really a 40 foot boat. You already see what Fountain is.
Go with the Hustler, will be alot better return and what really matters is the fun factor.
Check this out Express Cruiser

Look at the boats they have on the list. LOL

Nothing yet. He's building the motors. So if I blab what he's building, I'll get myself in trouble. (I have to wait until they're done to talk.) But sure enough, it will be ready for the NY Poker run on June 18th.

It's ok about the Shore thing. I have have my own language sometimes.
