    97 hurricane

    possibly going to look at a hurricane? it runs and comes with a trailer. owner claims it takes on water when sitting in the water. claims no damage to hull? claims no lose hoses or fittings on engine? i am not real familiar with hurricanes. so that possibly leaves where the cables or through hull fittings or where drive shaft comes through ? any body with hurricane experience could you please chime in on this. thanks in advance!!!

    Worn drive shaft seals (and bushings) are common water leak points.

    Loose or missing speedometer hose at the pitot nipple under the drive shaft, or broken nipple.

    The Hurricane has a really long drive shaft and the 1997 also has an extra drive shaft support bearing. That bearing may also be worn.

    The stock Hurricane hull has a strong tendency to porpoise up and down. Adding a ride plate extension (several inches welded on the rear) really helps stabilize the ride. That said, it is often a wet ride with lots of bow spray.
