Check hull for cracks and lines to see if the boat was in a slip as opposed to dry storage. Also tap on transom with screwdriver for hollow sound. Unscrew tap screw on lower unit and make sure it runs oil and not milk.( milk = water in lower unit, bad seals ). Compression test for sure. Check livewell pumps, lighting etc. Check bilge and wiring integrity and all storage cabinets. All I can think of now.

Are you interested in getting yourself a bass boat? Have you considered its size? Does the thought on how much does a bass boat weigh cross your mind? These are valid questions that will ensure that you are financially ready to have a bass boat.

Its weight, size, and other factors will matter when you move it around. Although it is known to be a lightweight boat, you should know how heavy or light it will be for storage, transfer, and other practical purposes.
