    Arrow Polaris Hurricane tips?

    Looking at buying a Hurricane.

    What should I be thinking of doing to it, or watching out for?

    Handling issues or suggested modifications?

    Hull or deck issues? Weaknesses?

    is this the one in the classifieds? the 1200? looks like a nice ski.. not that i know anything about the hurricane, but i would be worried about the size of the hull with the 1200 in it.. stability wise at speed. but thats just my .02.

    cool ski though

    The biggest thing to remember is the ski is NOT a cruiser. It's designed for the bouys and just loves to go through the esses with absolute ease.
    It's a VERY wet ride.
    It porposis like crazy.

    I hit enter on accident.

    Conrad ran his Hurricane from the river through Havasu lake to the races, about a 2 hour ride.
    It was a good arm pumping workout.
    In the chop you just can't get a real good top speed.
    The good news is when he was there he had an absolute blast tearing through a made up bouy course.

    Depending on the year there were some upgrades to help reduce porposing.
    Driveline updates
    So I guess the real question is what year craft are you looking at?

    1997

    I have read about extending the ride plate, and that seems to be a 'weld an extension on yourself' deal. If you know of a source for an extended ride plate, I am all ears.

    Is the intake grate on the 'cane a special size?

    The stock jet pump is non-extended, but I have no idea what a Pro style pump extension would do on a Hurricane hull. According to the specs, the Hurricane is only a couple of inches shorter than an SL hull

    I have been told that Beach House sponsons for an HX hull will fit the Hurricane.

    I'll know this weekend if I'm going to part out the Cane with the extended ride plate.

    I never tried it on the cane as I really like how it handles the bouys and figured I wouldn't worry about trying to make it a cruiser. You ceratinly have my curiosity piqued (sp).

    Same as above, I never changed what was there. I would imnagine Watcon and Wetwolf would know the answer.
