It has 180 hours on it. It was used in fresh and salt water but flushed each time. (so they say) I asked if he changed the pump impeller and he said "we didn't change the pump. It is and outboard and inboard engine. So I expect that they don't know much about it.
SO... I know that I will be changing the impeller if I get it. But can I tell if any damage has been done? Would a water test tell me most of what I need to know? I would walk away now, but the boat looks pretty good in the pictures and is configured like we want. (bimini top and swim platform). I know a top is cheap, but the platforms are not easy to find. They are asking $9k for it with an aluminum trailer.
Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
