Cool boat! There's one up here, been for sale for a while at 11k, has a 420/454/TRS.

As for what is worth the way it is, I'd say 4-5k You'll probably sink at least 6k just to make it a runner.

Thanks for the replies Biggus and CanDo.

As far as getting it sea worthy, I am assuming the motor will need to come apart at the very least to check on condition and reseal. The out drive and trans are also unknown. The out drive is half buried in the dirt so I am assuming it will need to come apart again to check condition and reseal. The trans ???????? Again assuming it will need to come apart to check condition and reseal.
The motor would be no problem as I feel I am fairly mechanical (have a part time motor sports and small engine service and repair business) but I have never taken an out drive apart (yet, I have the alpha off my Wellcraft and need to reseal it this winter). I feel I can definitely do the out drive and trans with a manual but am unsure on special tools needed.
Any idea's or hints would be greatly appreciated. Also costs associated with doing everything mentioned above with me performing all or most of the labor.

That's an "Alpha " Drive.

What that mean is $$$ when you try and put HP (also $$$) through that drive.

You have a solid hull there, offer them $4000

Are you sure? I thought it was a TRS. Can someone else verify?

It is a TRS drive. You will need special tools to rebuild the drive. I would suggest taking it to a Merc. Service guy to check it out. AS for the trans. is it a Merc.2 trans or Borg? Both are easy to rebuild yourself. Part for the merc. 2 are getting harder to find so a good frshen up would be a good idea.

Well, as much as I would like to buy this boat, I really don't need it. For the amount of money I would have in this boat plus my Wellcraft I could be half way to the boat I really want. Plus insurance on 2 boats doesn't sound that great.
If anyone is interested in buying it email me at [email protected] with an offer. Also let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for all the great info everyone.
