It seems to have some diving racks in it, so has it been used commerically with lots of engine hours? and if its propped for diving then your going to need a bigger prop but hardly the end of the world especially for that price.

Thanks Pete, for the feedback. Viewed the boat today and it is not too bad except the tubes are threadbare in some places. Engine is V.G. Will have to paint the tubes to save them and need to do research on what this involves.
The boat was used as a dive training boat by a civy. contractor for the US military so it has been well used. Will send new pics.

Interesting design at the stern/transom. there is a 12 inch step between the steering position and the transom so not too concerned about danger. If necessary will fit a piece of lifeline net across. Think I have a deal subject to some paperwork stuff resulting from importation from Italy. Trailer is OK but only just; a bit light on the front end; a couple of bags of sand in the bow will fix that for long tows. I think I am going to have to put about a $1k into it to make it look good. Including new seals on the hydraulic steering cylinder and tube paint with the two part SRC stuff.
The hull has a planing pad, which I kinda like, but I also have to fork out for seats!!!!. How do you turn a bottle rack into a looooong jockey seat? We will see what happens in the next few days.
Thanks again to all for the sound advice.

theres a two part military product, and pigment for your color, you can put it on with a roller, it will add the out side layer back to your toobs.

same work as paint, but gives you a better thicker layer, with far more ware resistance.
