Default 1990 Larson 22' Cuddy Cabin With a Mercrusier 5.0 Engine

Good Engine/Bad Engine?

its a 230HP Merc. The guy selling it doesn't exactly know the
history but says it was rebuilt.

I guess there's a battery problem.

The guy is selling the boat w/ trailer for $3750 "AS-IS"

I haven't looked at yet but its very local to me. I may go with
a drive by to see it.

From the pictures it looks like the boat is in pretty decent shape.

I don't mind a little fixing up... The price is within budget. Just
need to see it in person.

I asked the guy if he had the title... How hard is it to figure that
stuff out. If he's got the title, I'd be fine... That stuff would worry me...

over....

My friend has a Proline with a 230? I will check. Check the weep-hole where the pump is in the front.The seals go and they leak. Ist a four cylinder, it runs great ,but if the seals go in the pump the hole thing has to come apart for a seal. Right down to the crank case. His is in the yard. broken. He is thinking of replacing the engine with a 210. it bolts up the same and the pump is easy to fix. this is the second time the pump went on him.

Thanx CC

If anyone else wants to chime in, I'm all ears.

I think I could talk the guy down a little more. Its already $3750
so I'd guess I could knock a little off. Espcially with green in hand.

The trailer needs lights I guess. Says the wiring is there but
no lights.

The guys says the batteries are dead, not enough juice to turn it
over. Not that I would try without changing the fluids, et al.

Is there a dipstick in the lower unit.

I assume checking the oil top side for milky, water etc is an
obvious indication of badness.

Anything on the fuel tank that easy.

The guy doesn't want any tinkering in the front yard. That's
why he's selling as is. He didn't own the boat.

I would bring a battery and ear muffs and start it up You never know? Get some kind of idear of what the engine does. If it don,t run it,s not a great deal. It,s a buyers market right now. boats aren,t selling. unless cheep. Gas Prices are up.
