I have a chance to buy a 1993 Seaswirl 175se with a Johnson 140 outboard for $2400.00. This boat has a new lower unit, water pump, prop, starter solenoid, battery, and was just tuned at marina. The problems are that the trailer needs a winch, the trim for the engine leaks down fast, and the tach jumps around. I am thinking just seals for trim, and maybe wiring for tach.
It seems like a good deal to me from looking around at similar boats that sell for around $4000.00, but NADA tells me average resale is $2495.00.
Is this a decent boat for my family, and what do you guys think it is worth?
