Hi LTF,

Haven't heard much lately from you. Have you added another vessel to the fleet? That makes how many now? The hurricane could be a great boat all set up. What engine is on it? If it's ready for spring/summer we would still be interested in a Block Island run.

Bill

hello, great to hear from you. The boat is only a hull now with no tubes. It will be a while before she is ready for the water but will enjoy every minute of getting her ready. The searider will be ready for the block island run. Hope a few more ribbers can come with us. I heard the Ribcraft will have another run and I will make every effort to make this one. It looked like a lot of fun in the pics, Im still bumming I missed it. Spring will be here before we know it. will talk to you soon. Ill try to get some pics posted

Thanks for the pics Sunrider. Does anyone know what the dry weight of a hurricane 640 would be minus the tubes and motor? I tried to find info online but couldnt find what I wanted.

I am just wondering if anyone has fitted tubes to these boats. I can see the boltholes on the lower part of the tube flange. But am unable to see how the top of the tubes are fastened to the hull. There doesnt seam to be any mounting holes on the top of the tube flange. It doesnt look like there is anything like a slide in flange on the boat, it lookes like it is just bolted directly to the hull. If anyone has any experience with these feel free to give you opinion.

Sunrider, Just wondering what year your boat was. Also what are the 2 stacks that are visible in fron of the console? Are they the gas fill and vent. Also do you remember how large the gas tank was? m hopeing to get my first real look at the boat in the next couple of weeks.
thanks

Hi there in the States,
try out this page http://www.zodiacmilpro.com/product/...nfo/630FRB.pdf

The Zodiac 630 might be the equal as your 640. The tubes are removable
and only screwed to the hull.

Greetings from Germany
Mike
