Why the closed cooling? If you stay freshwater, the heads should be okay. The trailer might net $1500. Depends on where you are. Here in the northeast, with the season cooling, you might be less. Oh and run a 3-blade for a better top end. Plus if the motor is as healthy as he says, a little slip out of the hole will be easier on the bravo. And you won't notice much on that small of a boat

Here is the clearcoat (gelcoat?) cracking off I was talking about... Didnt realize I had a pic of it... Would you say this is something to worry about or would kill the resale value?
TIA

Saltwater will kill resale before anything else you mentioned would...

Is there anyway you could run on an inland lake?

Looks like someone cleared over the stripes. Not a big deal. Could sand and rub it off.

They're right, saltwater hurts your re-sale more than anything. Beat the seller up on price then run 'er till she's dead

It looks like it has already been clearcoated at some point??? I've never seen gelcoat do that, unless it's a severe case of blistering???

Either way for the money you are paying you don't have much to lose, as you say "enjoy the hell out of it"!
