As one can imagine having last been in service by a government agency, there are a lot of items that were not exactly done as most of us would when things needed fixing. The console looks like a hunk of Swiss cheese, bow locker is missing, and the bolster is incomplete. First step is going to be to take lots of photos then completely disassemble the boat so we can start from the ground up. The good news is we have a couple other ribs to play with while we refurb this one.

Ok so I bought it as a stripped boat no power. It had twins but I am planning on a single( brand not yet determined) on an extension. This is a much less produced model than the 630 and there are no spec sheets readily available for it.
I did not find it. It found me actually.( long story) This particular has a pointed bow over the 630 which is more squared off. There are also squared bow H640's as well. I did find that this boat weighs about 600 lbs more than a H630. I'll be happy to share any more info that I find.

Cheers

Nice boat! what i wanted but ended up with a 530.

I almost bought a 630 and a 640 on separate occasions. Did A bit of research back then, getting a bit hazy but if I remember correctly the 630 was designed and built in he United States (pointed bow like at 530/540) and the 640 was Canadian ( square bow like 733). Or maybe it was the other way around. Pretty much the same boat with different tubes.

I think the 633 was the holy grail, a 630 with an outboard bracket instead of the sloped transom, lots more deck space. Never actually seen one though.

Both of the 6 series boats I was considering were equipped with twin 90 yam 4 strokes.

Other way around...the 640's have the pointed bow and are holdovers from the original Lucas Hurricane 640's...
