This is what Buc has in average condition. Unless that thing is in showroom condition 15K is way high on it. Better condition would add another 10-12% to hull value and Bristol would add 20-25% over average. I don't see it be worth anymore than 9K, 10K tops.
You got a better shot at the 99 Ficht running than a 99-01 Optimax. Although a good bit of the problems they had with those engines, both OMC and Merc was caused by not having the right oil for them. They didn't have synthetic blends back then. DFI crankcases don't have 10-20gals of cooling fuel blowing thru them. They run hotter and they were burning the straight dino oil in the crankcases causing carbon and coking problems.
First thing I would do with that Ficht is decarbon it heavily 3-4 times then I wouldn't burn anything in it except Bomb XD50, XD100 or Amsoil pure synthetic oil. The last two are expensive and the XD50 is made for DFI engines. Then it needs decarboned every 50hrs after that.
