Pro 530

If it is a Pro 530 there is a difference between that boat and a Hurricane which confuses a lot of people. When Zodiac first started building these they were built at their "Hurricane" factory in Canada and had a capacity tag on them that said Hurricane at the top. It is almost identical to a similar model that was built by Hurricane but there are some differences. For one the tubes are about one third the price of the Hypalon hurricane tubes, however there is a set of Hurricane tubes that fits perfect if you can find a nice used set.

Zodiac did not have a maximum weight for the outboard back when these were built. However a two stroke 120hp was around 320 lbs back in 1989 when mine was built.
Which kind of tank did you build in. I have had some problems finding one which can fit in, under the deck, not much space in the heights.

I am looking at putting an A-Frame on the back of my Pro 530 to hold a light and GPS antenna. I also want to hang several airline hoses at times for some one water work I am doing, weighing maybe 15 lbs a piece. Anyone have experience on what a single pole 2" A-Frame attached to the transom can handle for weight hanging on it's sides? Also, anyone know where I can get a Pro 530 manual, or copy of one?

I built my a-frame and I can stand on it without it bending or even flexing. I integrated it with my leaning post for the rear console. I need to get some photos up on this board as it turned out really great.

Pro 530

I'll have to dig for it as I am currently in the process of moving but I do have a copy of the original owner's manual for the pro 530. I'll try to get a hand on it and see if I can make a digital copy of it.
