I'm supposed to go meet him today and drive it, but I want to be ready with questions.

- I'm not very mechanical, so should I pay a mechanic to look at it?
- What should this mechanic be looking for? Compression test?
- What is a boat like this really worth? I was thinking of around $8500 - $9k...I know the blue book is lower.

Unfortunately his post on Craigslist has expired, so I can't post the pics this morning

Is this boat in Tidewater, VA area? - if so I've seen the ads (been for sale for a while). Asking too much IMO - which is why it's still for sale (assuming same boat).
