Hurricane 590 project

Hello, I'm pretty excited to start my Hurricane project. I've been dreaming of a Hurricane since I was a little kid. I picked up a great 590 ex Parks Canada. I even talked my wife into helping. So far so good.

Nice Boat! I saw that one come up on GC surplus back in November. Quite a deal you got if you were the one who won the auction.

Whats the deal with the super long transom bracket? Was that from the factory or did parks Canada modify it? Never seen a 590 with a bracket before. It is interesting the way they scalloped out the sides on it, almost like it was supposed to have its own tubes attached.

Putting the twin 90's back on it? Should go like stink.

You should probably link/move this thread over to the "ribnet north america" section. Lots of hurricane appreciation over there!

Hi, Yes that's the one. It still has its 90s on it and I lucked out, they only have 373 hrs and run perfectly. The tubes haven't lost any air yet either. The transom mount is pretty interesting. I'm presently trying to eliminate all the orange. Hard work but very rewarding. John

I have a 590 and love it... I spend half my time wishing it was bigger, and half my time wishing it was smaller.... I figure that makes it just right.

Good luck with the update!
