Default Thinking about buying a 1989 20' Maxum with cuddy

It need work, spongy floor, new upholstery every where, engine and stern drive in unknown condition, haul faded, ect. left out in weather for a few years here in Michigan.
Can any body tell me what it is worth ( ball park ) or should I run away from it

If it's been sitting out exposed and rain has gotten into it, it might be more than just the floor that's spongy. I'd be concerned about the shape of the stringers and the transom as well. It's rare that someone let's everything in the boat go, but maintains a pristine engine and drive. It's impossible to assess worth without seeing a boat. If you're really interested, get it surveyed. However, surveys can be costly, so I'd only do one I was absolutely sure I was interested in buying.

I'd run...as fast as you could....wouldn't be worth more than about 1500 bucks if the engine is running...if not...it's junk....
welcome to the zoo by the way..
