I just picked up a former US Border Patrol Hurricane 630 (was a coast guard boat before that) with twin honda four strokes and I have a few questions:
1. It appears that there are two seperate fuel tanks, one is the main and one is the auxiliary. There are two valves on the back of the rib which I assume allow fuel to flow from one tank. Does anybody know the proper procedures on how to run the boat with this dual fuel tank set up? I wonder if the main and aux. fuel tank are in essence acting like two seperate fuel tanks for each engine.
2. The RIB doesn't have trim tabs, would you recommend them? I like them on my Nautica as they allow me to put them down to plow through chop.
3. The one tube has a small pinhold leak where the rub rail got pulled off. Is there a repair facility somewhere near Cleveland? The tubes are also painted white, but they need another coat of the RIB paint, has anybody tried painting over painted tubes with Tuf Cote?
