For now I'm just trying to gather some info to see if it's feasible to bring back to life. Like someone posted, options are VERY limited here. Plus keep in mind that boats are about 30% more expensive here than in the US, plus labour is much cheaper, so it might be worth it.

If anyone can give an answer to my initial questions that would help a lot:
- how much is a new engine, and where can I find one? about $8K

- it has 310hp. Was 330 an option in 2001? What's the difference between these engines?
about 20HP & Multiport injection

- which steering cable should it have (it's missing)?
19' Teleflex - about $160

- it's missing some smaller items (battery, some cup holders, mirror, nav light on bow, ignition switch, hydraulic springs (if that's what they're called, to keep the engine covers open). Do your trained eyes see anything else, anything major that's missing or needs attention?

Another one: what are some of your favorite online sources for parts etc?
and of course your local dealer

This may not be applicable for you since you are in Costa Rica

good luck
