    10 years old...check the compression, spark and lower unit for leaks and damage.
    Be careful of a freshly painted motor.
    Test Ride!

    Unfortantly i am in jax and he is in orlando, my dad is going down tomorrow to look it over and run it and all since he works in daytona on fridays and if everything checks out i will be picking it up saturday afternoon so.

    I just didnt know if anyone has heard of horror stories about these motors once they hit the 500 and 700 hr mark i plan on keeping this boat for the next 5 years or so and i try to fish 3 days a week so the hours will add up fast.
