welcome to the zoo...
the 2300 is a pretty good pocket cruiser.....when it gets rough..the boat will take alot more than you will...with that said...just slow down and put the trum tabs down which will lower the bow....that will plow the bow thru the waves...

well...bout the only thing that I found with that sized boat is in the short chop type water..it does pound a bit and becomes uncomfortable...but that boat will definitely take more than you will
as far as rot goes...probably don't have any..bout the only way to really tell is with a moisture meter...drill a sample in the stringer looking for any rotted wood...but overall those boats are pretty solid boats..
as far as the engine/drive goes..they are pretty solid boats as long as you maintain the zinc's ...if your in salt water, you need to maintain the zinc's....otherwise they will not protect the drive against the dielectric corrosion...
zinc's on a b3 drive are the most important thing to protect your drive from become junk al.....so.....with that said....if it has the mercathod system on it....make sure it is working properly...
the mercathod system has a transducer under the bottom of the transom mounting ring ..and there is a blue box located on the port side of the engine ...that is the voltage controller ....ensure that they are working..if your not sure..then have a mercury tech look at it....
