Have the real engine hours checked off of the ecm. 100hrs for a midwest boat on a lift all summer for the last 7 years seems too low.
However, if it does have only 100hrs it should show. The boat should look like new everywhere, no wear and tear.
If it was super clean I wouldn't have a problem buying it without dropping it in the water provided you could run it, fill the ballast etc.
Fill all the ballast to make sure the pumps all work and no cacks in the tanks. Should be a port to fill from on the ballast manifold if it's the same as 06 models.
Run the engine up to temp.
05's have the new tower too, right? That's a bonus if you ahve to fold it up alot and they have swivel racks.
I think 05 was past the bad years for vinyl as well.
Price does seem a bit high for a mid winter deal, but 205V's are arguably MC's best do-it all hull and near the top as a wakeboat. They hold their value well.
