You are talking about an 8 year old motor that probably does not have much time on it. When a motor sits without proper storage procedures, problems "grow" in the motor.
The 2000 had a checkered history. For the most part they ran fine and were the first year redesign of the FICHT engines. Some of the quality control of parts was lacking in those years so there were some problems that were not design related, but component related. If the engine was well maintained by a trained tech, it should be OK, but it still is 8 years old and possibly in salt water. That makes any engine suspect.
Have a trained tech check the motor over thoroughly, do a water test, and give you a printout of the engine history stored in the motor's computer. Like buying anything used, it is a crap shoot.
