Hi to all, I am looking at a 1993 ranger 482V with a Johnson 150 fast strike on it. Are there any things to look for? or known issues with the hull or transom? The boat is said to be in excellent condition. the only issue according to the seller, the motor isn't running but did last fall or summer or when he last had it out. He had a marine mechanic look at it and found some leak with the carbs and needed a part. They ordered the part but haven't installed yet. If the part gets the motor running again, should i be concerned? Any comment good or bad on this set up will be appreciated.

thanks in advance

I'd have your own mechanic check it out as well, after the repair.
Make sure you do a test run under load - on the open water, not just hooked up to hose.
