What's your thoughts on purchasing a boat that's 17 years old with zero hours on the boat? I need to know the pros and cons. What do I need to get checked and what are my main concerns?

Thanks

Coach. Do not try to start this engine until it has been checked out by a certified tech. The fuel system, including pumps, lines. primer etc all need to be checked and replaced as necessary. Water pump is shot. Clean the gas and oil tanks. A good wrench will know everything that needs done to it. The rings may or may not be stuck, but they should free up. I would not be afraid of the rig after it is gone thru. Good luck
