The hurricane sold at auction with trailer for $3601.00. I did have a set of used military tubes lined up for $3K. However, I was not the winning bidder. Thanks for all your help.

Hey limey, I was just wondering why you did not buy it, I am assuming the boat you were interested in must have been somewhat of a roach, but 3600 with a trailer sounds like it would have been in the ballpark....

Hi Pat
Yea, maybe I screwed up. However the photo's of the hull showed potential hull damage and my buddy in CA was unable to get there to check it out and my schedule did not allow me to get there. Sometimes things do not go right!!!
Have you seen the 10M and 11M ribs currently up for auction? they would be great for someone who wants a large RIB and has the time to re-build.

Yes, i did see those, look to be some serious pieces of equipment, a little bigger than what most of us recreational boaters need generally, though nice to have I am sure! I am keeping my ear to the ground and my nose in the air, if I come across anything out there in the remote corners of the world wide web i will be sure to let you know..

I ended up with that 733 in California. I drove from Iowa to pick it up but a paperwork problem left me returning home without it. I've been reconditioning another RIB since then and will complete it next week, then return to California for the boat.

Fortunately the condition proved to be better than I expected (bidding on pictures alone is really a gamble!) so is a good candidate for reconditioning. I would sell it as-is where-is if anyone is interested in making an offer...but would need to be substantially more than what I paid because of the condition and potential.

At this point I'm not really eager to sell because I intend to convert it to outboards, using the transom extension used on the CZ7 (got the plans from Zodiac), and will probably arrange the deck in a similar fashion. Haven't done that type of conversion before and seems like a fun project. will post pictures as things progress......
