How much to repair pac 22 engine?

I know it's hard to say without actually knowing what is wrong with it and having a look, but, can anyone give me a very vague sort of price for how much it would cost to get a Mermaid engine in a pac 22 sorted. It is currently seized, along with the leg.

When I say vague I just want to know whether its financially worth doing....

Thanks

What caused it to sieze??
Has the Borg Warner gear box locked up? which would also lock up the engine.

I know virtually nothing about inboards! I have simply been told that the engine and drive are seized. The prop won't spin even in neutral. It would probably be a good idea to get a engineer to have a look at the boat for me before I buy it (if I buy it) but I'm hoping someone with a bit of knowledge of these might have some helpful suggestions.

i know nothing about them, but it could be the gear box stuck, locking the leg and engine, i.e even though you are putting in in neutral on the gear lever, it might not actually be selecting that gear.

If the whole lot is locked up, then i would go for the GB being the problem. Even by getting an engineer to look at it will not be an easy task as the drive shaft will need to be disconnected to prove the leg. Undoing the GB isnt to sad but it is a heavy lump. by spliting all will tell you what is goosed, then plan costs on that.
