Question

Does anyone have this type of boat?


Someone gave me their gas boat. It's called a Hustler. It's about 44" L and has a 13" beam. It is powered by a weed wacker engine. Does any one have a boat like this or knows anything about it?

Not much but some. The hull is molded plastic which shouldn't be good mounting a hot gas motor into. It's slow, about 17-21 MPH going downhill.
The last one I saw was probably a good year or so ago as a local hobby shop had one sitting there. I was surprised that they were still being made!
With it being free, you really can't complain. Just don't expect a lot from it.
The same company made a slightly faster boat called the Alien. I've never seen one except for magazine ads.

Hustler Boat


I have 2 of the Hustler boats with weed wacker engines....I have owned them since new (approx 15 years) and still have the manual that came with them. Mine have not been used in a couple of years and we just took them down from the shelf and are in process of replacing fuel lines but expect them to run great...alot of fun!!

My dad had one of these YEARS ago, probably about 17 years back. You can get more speed out of them with a better prop, and better exhaust (the stock canister does nothing for power), but don't expect to turn it into a 40mph boat. They're still tons of fun though!
