I always appreciate your guys/gals knowledge and experience so I thought I would bounce this off you.
I found a good deal on a high quality boat, not a Screaming deal, a good solid deal. The inboard has less than 70 hrs on it and its a Marine Power with a Hamilton Jet. The rest of the boat is in good to very good condition.
Given the fact that I can get a good deal on it, what would you say if I bought the boat without running the motor and I told you there is enough off between NADA and the price that I could replace the entire engine if necessary and still sell it at Blue Book.
( I have seen the boat so my only concern is I haven't run the motor. The condition of the boat communicates to me the owner has taken at least average to above average care of the engine.)
Thanks for the input.
