..twins always are enticing..but I learned (the hard way)..one motor, only one headache...and the 500 is nearly bulltetproof..

..the Krypto hull is bulletproof as well...ask Randy.

Good Luck!



*btw..doesn't Randy still have his two Krypto's??...the black one is nearly new...

A little vinyl tape from Stickerboy could take care of the colors.

I think Randy has two of those 28 Kyrptos for sale.

I guess it all depends if you want to go for a quick ride or spend the day out on the boat.

That should make a big diff if it is.
All they Kryps I've seen are sit downs which would kill the deal for me.

Bern.... BIG question

do you want to race? if so, stick with the Kryp. The hustler is a great boat if you just want to pleasure boat. if you race the Hustler, you gotta worry bout securing everything in the cabin and like the other guys said.....twice the expense and headaches

Go with the Kryptonite Bern. The reliability factor of the 500 EFI is far better then the 454s with tons of hours on them. Besides that Krypto would spank the 32 Hustler any day of the week on Barnaget Bay where you do 90% of your boating unless you are doing Poker Runs. I would take the Krypto in the rough as well. Its a far newer boat anyway which will leave you with less headaches down the road.

If I was in the market, and had to choose, I'de grab the Hustler.

like Ron said, what do you want to do with it?

In that case why did you bother to sell the Scarab?

Kryptonite,,, two words ,,, Fuel, TWINS,, @ about 3.00 a gallon on the water this summer I wouldn't even think of buying twins.. well I was thinking but 45 gph compared to 90 gph changed my mind real quick.

And with a bunch of numbskulls predicting oil could reach 100.00 per barrel I would think long and hard..

You can't compare the scarab to that Kryponite.
