What motor?

Aside from a thorough test drive. You can tell a lot about the boat by the interior. Is the vinyl original? If so is it in good shape. Where has it been stored and who has done what maintenance.

My 97 still has the original interior and still has lots of life left.

What does the cover look like? If the cover is all messed up, or isn't good quality that may be an indicator. Not that the boat is in bad shape but most people I know that take care of their equipment, take care of all of it.

thanks, actually I seen about 30 pic of the boat but none of the cover. The interior looks like it is in great shape for its age. the gel-coat loos solid to. The problem is its in henderson NC and I am in indiana. Anyone know any good boat inspectors in that area?
