So my fiancÚs father has given me his old scorpion 230 it's I believe an 86 or 87, I'm not sure exactly what engine it has, I know its a mercury engine nor what outdrive it has exactly though I do know that it's also a mercruiser outdrive, I know that it had a 4 blade prop and with 3 people on board we had it going I think around 40 mph. here's the thing, somebody took it joyriding around the lake and hit a rock pretty hard. Bottom line is that the lower unit and prop are trashed and need to be replaced, according to the mechanic we took it to the engine isn't damaged however it needs new plugs and wires and the engine could probably use a rebuild. all the seats and cushions are shot, town up, sun baked and cracked and needs to be replaced. what I'm wondering is:
1. what can I expect to pay for the new outdrive lower unit and prop, both cost of parts and installation, I know it's hard to give me an accurate figure since I'm not sure what model outdrive the boat has
2. what can I expect to pay for an engine rebuild and new plugs and wires.
3. where can I find a company to redo the cushions and pad over the engine compartment. and again, how much am I looking at paying.
I apologize for my total inexperience with this, racing sailboats are my thing so a performance powerboat like this is new to me, I'd really like to get it running again and clean her up.Thanks in advance for any advice.
below is a photo of the boat.
