Yes I think it is the one that was on EBay although that is not where I got it from. Thanks for the offer on the T-top. I might be swapping out the console. This one has seen better days. Someone welded a shelf to the rails by the windshield and really made a mess of it. A good friend own a fab shop so he is gonna have a look and see how much work it will take to clean it up.

tworotor, if u are giving the t top away I would love to grab it, it may be worth the price of shipping for me, I was thinking of having one made but would love to get one made for it. feel free to message me and we can talk, thanks.

Also cgoing, why are you mounting a bracket on the boat, is it solely for the extra deck space? Will it affect handling in any way? will you have a full bracket made up to copy the hull and chines or just an extention. Just curious. thanks

640 build

No worries on the T-top. I am probably going to change consoles. I have a new console and T-top combo available to me at a great price that has more vertical surface area for a Chartplotter.

As far as the bracket goes, I was looking at more of a hull extension to improve handling. the deck space is limited by the molded in transom well but that make go under the knife once I look into how exactly the area under it is layed out.
I've got a vision in my head, that the voices in my head are encouraging. We'll see how it all shakes out. First step is going to be to get the whole thing stripped and cleaned.

Cheers, Chris

Consider it yours. I will PM you some more pics and measurements so maybe you can get a decent shipping quote from Uship. Do you have one of these hurricane consoles already? I know there are at least a couple variations of them. Im not sure if they slightly changed dimensions at all over the years but Im sure you can make it work.

Chris, looking forward to see what console you put on there. I will most likely be changing out to something different too.

Tubes have been removed along with the fuel tank and console. The hull is in better shape than I originally thought and won't need as much work as we assumed.

Cool! I wish that I could have found the 640 OB version when I did my 2 rebuilds...would have saved so much time and money...
