115 hours in 8 years. 14.3 hours a year usage average...I'd be bummed looking at it and not using it...

Mint condition throughout. 115 Hours - cut and paste from ebay...Between my boat and friends I at least put on 100 hours a season... wish I could ski that long :D

Just make sure it was stored properly and the engine was cared for properly. I was told that a hardly used engine could be prone to internal damage - corrosion, just from sitting around.

But assuming the owner took care of it, looks imaculate.

Add says that speedo and tach are not working so could be that the hour meter is not working as well. Would likely have to have a dealer hook-up a computer to read the true hours or at least verify.

Isn't "we have all" redundant and presumptive ? :rolleyes:

Hey that's my boat! Well close to anyways as I am still negotiating the purchase. Marine survey went very well and it looks as minty as it looks in the eBay photos. 106 engine hours. The Gauge issue appears to be a faulty module and I am fine absorbing that. The one problem that turned up is that it has the not uncommon leaking exhaust manifold plugs. Anybody have a fair value for repairs to both manifolds? The port side is squirting fairly well out of one plug with signs that others may follow and the starboard side is not leaking but looks to be following shortly behind. A pair of new manifolds is close to $1500 so far but still looking for better prices... Would there be a worry of other internal engine corrosion as the rest of the exterior of the boat and all fittings look to be immacuate and corrosion free...

Also, sorry if I am pushing the boundaries by changing the direction of this thread in the general forum. Will post further inquiries in the appropriate sub-forums

Split the cost of 2 new manifolds. Cheapest I could find was $727 each!

Do some reading on these links and search google before you spend $1500. Tell the ebay seller it will cost $1500 + Labor to help neg the price down, then get the iron ones.

This guy ( post #3 ) says he replaced alum manifold with cast iron manifold and it worked $200 instead of $700
