They say to have all cylinders within 10-15%. I suppose he should be ok, but I hope he knows going in that it can blow any minute.

if it was an old straight 6 I'd say it had a warped head,..who knows.
22% difference in 105 to 90,...age and hours is always a factor..
and who done the test,..??

I would be a little hesitant with the cyl showing 90 (assuming it's a quality guage being used)... Definitely get a leak down test done!! That's the only real way to find out the motors "health".

Since you are asking, there must be some concern about that engine. Don't buy a boat you have "some" concern about. Once it blows, you knew better to begin with. But with that said, there are two types of engines...1) those that are blown, 2) those that are gunna blow.

I would buy it with the intent of freshening the motor.

Have him run it by a dealer for a leak down test. Often there is a ton of variance between compression gauge sets. The leak down being more accurate. Its cheap insurance. Spend $100 now to save $4000-10,000 later.

Yep...leakdown test...5 to 8% leakdown at max, anymore, I would reduce my offer substantially to compensate for freshening up.
