Thats what I was looking for - buy it for as low as possible then spend time and money to get everything sorted and upto the high standard I would like.

Looking at the photos they have not even cleaned it.

Exactly, and if the lazy B didn't change the leg oil etc, it's gonna be .

If you are a mechanic, as opposed to a handyman, then fine.

He says he has the history on the engine and leg - and these would be the only part i would be unsure of - all the electrical stuff and cleaning I am OK with.

Anyone have a rough idea on cost to service this engine and leg?

This popped up on my eBay search last week.
Saw it afloat in Hamble a couple if weeks ago.

From the description sounds like a typical unloved yachty race boat tender.
Would be wanting to see the engine and drive service history - all the rest can be sorted but it would need to be cheap.
Typically the "owner" will pay for servicing and stuff but nobody actually takes any care of it.

This is what i hope, and will see what they say about the history on the leg and engine.
