Any boat that floats with a decent trailer and engine is a good deal for $450 OBO.

^^ Exactly!! And if it runs I'd call it a smokin deal! The engine alone, even though old is worth more than that.

Got it home, needs a little cleaning but it's in really good shape.

Bad;
top is a little short and kind of moldy (so I already took it off)
carpet needs to be replaced badly
needs some rewiring

Good;
Already has speakers
vinyl on the seats is still soft and pliable, no holes!
Everything seems to be on good working order

As others have mentioned - if the engine runs and the trailer is solid, you are in good shape for the price you paid. On a boat that age, no one expects the vinal to be solid - if it is, all the better. I think you nabbed a great deal.

you have a motor that has parts available at least. some of the old mercs have distributors that go bad and nothing you can get for them.

Found the spark problem, bad battery! Hooked up one of my other ones and she fired right up! This boat handles real nice, it's so light the ass end wants to skip across the water in hard turns. Topped her out in Lake Superior at 30mph. Fun boat.

How I got all of my crap from MI to MN, there was more in the box of my truck and this pic was taken after I already emptied some of it out.


Initial testing on a local inland lake to make sure it floats.



Out to the big water! After the winds died down the swells were only about 5' which this lil boat actually handled very well.
