Default New owner - 2005 1800 SR3

Just picked this up for $11k.. think it was a good buy? Any gotchas, tips, etc with the model? I have only only one boat in the past, a 2006 Bayliner 185 with Merc 3.0.

This one has the 4.3 Merc 190hp version so EFI. Not sure how I feel about that. Boat has about 250 hours on it.

Previous owner has the maint history and I am paying the local marina to inspect it prior to delivery.

Thanks!

Welcome aboard!

4.3 @ 190HP is a carb not EFI. Had one myself. EFI would be 220 HP.

A sister ship to mine. On a very small scale. Looks excellent. I was able to get my hull compounded, polished and waxed (2x) over past three days. Looks so much better. Good Luck with yours. Check your prop pitch, at 190hp, they are not over powered.
