No tubes. That will be spendy.

1600 hours and looks pretty clean.

The engine tach , rollover style, shows 1600. There is a second hour meter connected at the fuel distribution on the engine and it ready 67 hours which I can believe by the condition of everything even after sitting for a year.

The other engine drive assembly would have just been replaced prior to the govt getting rid of this boat.
