1994 Zodiac Hurricane 590 "Rescue"
Basic Information Prior to my purchase, boat was in service with Canadian customs service in Vancouver area. Suspect it was Canadian navy to about 2004, then transferred to customs service and re-fitted.
Exterior Modifications
Believe the boat is essentially as original. Fairly bare bones, rescue type boat. 4 cuft stow box added at sometime in past. We added hypalon doublers to the bottom half, aft 10' of tubes. Boat had been stored on sea water, causing some erosion from marine life. Also, as the boat was used in large international shipping harbor there were a lot of little dings in the tubes below waterline from floating debris.

Installed 1" sailboat T-track with sliders for gear tie-down in bow.

Electronics and Navigation
Lowrance HDS7 Gen2
VHF Icom IC-M422

Installed a Lonako solar/wind powered anchor light prior to Hakai trip that worked great. Time will tell how it holds up.

Engine and Fuel Tank Information
2007 Yamaha F150TLR

Fuel tank as far as I know is 35 U.S. gal, per the March 1991 Technical Manual provided with boat. The way the transmitter is set up and the boat squats in the back, gauge reads about empty at probably 10+ gals.

Gear and Accessories
Single 2 person jockey seat.

Kokatat Gore-Tex Expedition Dry Suits. Fantastic, we love these suits, although the Kokatat Radius 2-Piece Dry Suit might be more practical.

Gath retractable visor helmets. Make for a much more comfortable ride in an open boat at speed. Use as much or little of the visor as you need for the conditions.

Favorite Cruising Destinations
Places less traveled in my region. Hoping to do west coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. July 2017 -- Brooks Peninsula, Bunsby Islands area. Looking toward southern Haida Gwaii some time in summer 2018.
