Thanks for all the help. I did some checking and it turns out I know someone who knows the boat and it does need some work a global bearing ,tune up ,sea pump. It also shows 937 hrs on the hr meter. Other than that the gel coat and interior is in great shape they are asking 28,000.00 for this boat .

That`s a bit high check around bet you can find a lot of boats for 28,000 Bank repo`s want the pay off for the boat, offer what you can afford the worse they can do is counter offer. Good luck

That is a ton of hours for that boat and motor. The price is too high. It will need at least an engine rebuild. Look around

Way too many hours and too much $$$ for that boat.

My first boat was a repo. It was a great boat for us. I sold it for what I paid for it after 2 years of use. The condition will vary.
