Zodiac Hurricane 590

Today I picked up my 3rd RIB and my 2nd Zodiac Hurricane. I have a lot of work ahead of me and a limited budget since this is my second boat. My current one is a Seasport Sportsman and I was using it to volunteer for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. After two years it was getting beat up and I decided to go with a RIB again.

I am looking at painting the tubes to get the last life out of them before having to purchase new ones. I started to take some of the bits and pieces off.

Anyway, here is my 1992 Zodiac Hurricane 590.

Good day and good luck with your new boat. I heard a lot of good concerning this model.

I never saw those tubes and not related in any way with the owner, but you may check with him (or her) before investing or the actual one.

Best regards.

Nice boat! I was looking at a few 590's when I got my boat, they were all 590 cabin models with twin 70's, I like the open ones like yours a lot better, hard to find though!

That Bimini top looks a bit scary, is it only supported by two pieces of tubing? Would be careful With that in any kind of sea.

What's on it for an engine? Can't see the hp in the pics.

Hey JohnRambo!

Kind of ironic that I use to use that name playing video games a long time ago. Yeah, that top is gone and a T-top is arriving this week. I am on the fence on the factory rear arch and might just go with a towing bit.

It has a 115HP on it and I ran it in the driveway for a little bit. Sounds good and started right up. I will do a compression check after getting the hull and tubes sorted out.

How long are the tubes holding air for? Looking at your pics, they look pretty rough. Amazing how much abuse they can take and still function as designed.
