Would You Buy This?

Just as a matter of interest would anyone buy an engine that had been submerged and what if any would be the long term effects?

Do like the Tohatsus.

Given the strip/rebuild it's had, I'd buy it.

After a 4 hour immersion a complete strip down ans rebuild seems a little OTT why did they not just drain out the water and fire it up

Insurance were paying for remedy.

Hmm..though it's not a 'trade member' of B&O advertising it. I wonder how reputable they are.
