First time boat buyer here. What are some of the things I should expect or what are some of the things I should look for/ask about during the discussion, negotiating and purchasing process on a used boat from a private seller? I'm assuming a test ride is something any reasonable seller would allow?

Since you are a new buyer, an inspection by an independent party and a compression check on the motor.

I would never buy a used boat without lake testing also.

Defiantly a outboard mechanic to run through it is a must, and be very thorough!

Compression check before anything else
