Count on complete rebuilds. Probably new headers, too.

Will need $50 K to keep running

Interesting number to throw out there. I'd find another machine shop if I were you if it's going to cost $50k to rebuild 3 HP500's.

not too bad if it checks out right...

I thought it was very fair priced as well. I'm just making room for the next one.

It probably needs minor valve work and not rebuilds.

I've seen the 419 in brick... immaculate, EFI... just too high for this market...

Yours is carbed... not that they are bad engines! I just wished my next boat was EFI...

I've had both versions of these engines. EFI is nice, but the carbs have been doing fine.

Three motors

Three drives

Three sets of CMI headers

My number is probably low

I don't know about "easily". I'm not 100% sure of the structure of 419's, but I think that you'd be looking at a lot of stringer work, not "just" filling and re-cutting the transom.
