Default Looking for advice on 1999 2100SR puchase

New to the board. I have been looking for a boat for my family to enjoy. Not having the funds to purchase a new boat I have been looking for a used boat. After looking at several boats I have found a 1999 2100SR w/ under 200 hours w/ 5.0 V8 that I have the opportunity to purchase. I can buy her for $11k. I am going to look at the boat this weekend. Anything particular I should look for and looking for advice on price. My research shows this to be a decent price.

Thanks for your input.

matt,
welcome to the zoo..hope your successful in the purchase...the best advice I can give it to get a mechanical and hull survey....that will be worth it's weight in gold....it will give you loads of info on the condition of the boat...look out for water in the hull ...tap on the hull with a plastic mallet...then have the engine tested with a full mech. check up...check the oil in the drive to make sure it's clean....also find out when the impeller was replaced....if not lately ...look at that as being the first thing to get replaced...was it saltwater born or fresh....if salt..check when all the zinc's were replaced...have the manifolds checked....this is just a few things to look for....others will pipe in....hopefully....
