This Bayliner was used on a freshwater lake in southern New Hampshire its entire life. The previous owner used it this summer until it developed a problem with the lower unit. The lower unit was partially disassembled and will need major repair. We did run the outboard and it starts up fast and sounds great. The compression is good in all three cylinders (110 lbs plus/minus 5lbs). The power trim and tilt operates well with no visable leaks but cavitates towards the top of its travel. The power-head is spotless and looks to have a new starter motor, stator and voltage regulator. The propeller looks newer as well. The battery in the boat holds a good charge and the stereo and bow nav light both power up. The fish-finder did not power up but it looks in good shape so it may be just a bad connection.
Cosmetically the boat looks good. The seating is in okay shape and the decks feel solid. The gelcoat will buff to a good shine with a compound and waxing. The bottom is in good shape and has never been bottom painted
