Im going to go take a look at a boat later this week and really the only thing I am too worried about is the motor, its got 700 hours on it. Its a Yamaha 350, and I know next to nothing about newer outboards, Im an inboard kinda guy. Anyway, how many hours can I expect to get on a motor like this before I have to look for a new unit? Ive done some research online and most people agree that it all comes down to how much it was abused. The owner has all of the 100hr tuneup paperwork, but its a 2010 motor with that many hours on it already, anyone have advice for things that I should look for while looking it over? We are going to splash it, so I should be able to see if run firsthand but other than the obvious I really would like opinions on what to look for.
Thanks guys, I really appreciate any help.
