Thats a great deal for $3000. I imagine it would be perfect in the great lakes. You'd be able to handle the chop much better than your futura. It will go slower in the smooth glassy water but when things get too rough for the futura bust out the Hurricane and start having fun. It says its rated for a 50hp too so you can get 10 more out of her. 900 lbs is heavy though. My 5.4 meter searider ( 18' ) is supposed to be 750 lbs and is rated up to 90hp. I think an equivalent size searider to that Hurricane is the Avon sr4.7 which has a rating for 70hp. Seariders are fantastic boats thats for sure but that one you should most definitely be able to make money off of I would think. I say thumbs up.
