Just looking @ the pics, the motors listed are NOT Mercury HP500's, they are Mercruiser 502 MPI's with Whipple chargers on them.
Can't say anything else about the boat, never seen it before.
Hope that helps,
Dean

Appears to be a CA boat; so I would pay attention to the trailer for indications of salt water corrosion.

Looks like a nice, clean boat. Get a survey done and the motors checked out before you buy to to be safe.

Is there anything wrong with the 502's in comparison to the HP500's, also as far as the salt corrosion goes I will keep an eye on it to look for it however I live in Ca aswell and will prob take it in the ocan but I am concerned about how well it has been cleaned and maintained in regards to the salt. Ive been trying to get ahold of the guy via email to get some more pics of the helm and below deck so well see. Just wanted to see if you guys could see anything wrong with it by looking at the ad.

Thanks John

Looks like it also has the add-on hyd steering instead of full hyd.
Hard to say about the motors. Either HP500's with the V/C's painted black, or 502's with the Gil exhaust added.

HP500's are alot better engine, that are ~ 470 Propshaft HP, where the 502's are ~390 Propshaft HP, of course these HP #'s are without the Whipple chagers. THE HP500's have way better internals than the stock 502s.
