I bought a car that sat for 3 years. the mileage was very low and it was a good deal. i quickly found out that sitting all that time was not good for the car. a lot of the seals and gaskets were dry rotted. i needed to have a engine overhaul to replace all the gaskets. it wasnt worth it in my case. Just something to keep in mind. I dont think you would see it leaking in 5 minutes of run time so maybe you could run it a few times before buying it? Seals might not be an issue on that motor but something to keep in mind.

do a compression check on the cylinders B4U buy!.
for 2500 you could be on the water fairly cheaply if it doesn't need much. Though a 17fter would should only be in calm waters. I wouldn't want to be out in 3 fters or more :eek:

Remember.... A boat is an indentation upon the water in which one throws hundred dollar bills :D
