nope, no engine or engine parts. but then the price reflected that, it was really cheap. Also most people I have read about have converted to outboard, they say the perform better. And the US government usually doesn't surplus well working equipment. The last 733 to sell at government auction in California went for $20K US and had the diesel engine, no out drive and a smidge of electronics, and a T top. i got mine for just a little more than a 1/7 of that. But that one was all black and would have been better for night ops

Awesome project. I'm in the market for a 733, I'm hoping to find one very similar to that...

If you need tubes, look here:

733 Zodiac Hurricane RIB inflatable boat tubes COSCOM | eBay

I believe that guy is on here as well, and he's in CA too. If you see any others like yours around, PLEASE let me know.

I inflated the tubes today so we'll see how they are tomorrow. First impressions are good, one broken valve but I see they have rebuild kits for the old valves.

The guy with the tubes has several boats for sale, or his neighbor does, looks like the same location, they were just out of my price range. I'll probably end up spending that much but i will do it over a longer period of time. also I like to work on stuff so half the fun is in doing the refurb work. Also remember that a Willard 730 is the same boat, keep checking the government auction sites is you want rough or in florida if you you want running
