Hurricane 640 Project (newbie)
Hi guys, I just got my hands on an old Hurricane 640 (ex coast guard boat). The inboard is gone, the tubes are okay (need to replace a valve) and sitting on an awesome trailer. I picked this up for next to nothing and plan on making it my project boat over the spring / summer. I saw a few other people posting on here about doing similar projects and I'm looking for advice / suggestions on how to go about fitting an outboard on this thing and anything else I should do. I'm an experienced boater (I'm a sailing coach) and can't wait to get this thing rolling, but admittedly know very little about doing a project like this, so any help / guidance would be GREATLY appreciated.
Right now the boat has no inboard (trim tabs still there, as well as power steering... not sure if that can be reused), still a hole in the stern where it was, needs the usual nip and tuck on the seats / etc. I'm thinking a single outboard (for cost reasons more then anything).
So, any tips? Be gentle ;-)
