  • Boat has poor sea keeping ability
  • It is 17 yrs old
  • Engine hrs can't be verified despite only 1 owner as it has clearly done more than the 5 hrs per yr they are claiming
  • Prop is damaged
  • electronics are dated
  • hull needs re sealing

RIBase
Where are you intending to use it & for what? As Doug says, "poor sea keeping" judging by the shallow hull. If you're just going to use in on lakes & rivers, that probably won't be a problem, if you're intending taking it out to sea, I'd keep looking. The whole thing looks like a shed & needs reworking/re-fitting. I'd be dubious about the engine hours looking at the skeg. If you fancy a project for calm/sheltered water give it a go, if not, walk on.
