New Rib Owner

Howdy everyone,
Just bought a rib before I found this site.. Oh well, life's a, well, you get the point. Anyway, bought a zodiac hurricane 590 with twin 70 yamaha's. I have heard good things about this boat from people who know a little, but I want to hear things about it from people who know a lot. The boat was made in 89, the motors were made in 90. Paid 15K US for it, hope it wasnt too much.. Oh well, too late now.. Well, lemme have it,
Jimmy

Howdy Jimmy

If everything is in solid condition, tubes, motors, and hull I think $15 is a really good price. Photos would help too. Is it an ex-military or a civilian version? I'm not familiar with the particular model I'm certain another rib.netter would know more.

Congrats on your purchase. Welcome to rib.net.

Yet another Yank - seems like the Rib message is slowly getting across at last!!!

Sounds like a good price - especially as Ribs are so rare in the US - hurry up and post some pics so we can all see it.

Bet you will have a load of fun with it - remember they are built for rough water!!!
