Default 1990 Grady White 242 offshore

Looking at this 1990 grady white 242 offshore. I know grady makes a damn fine boat. Mostly not to familiar with the motors. It has twin late 90s 135 Mercury's on it. Seller says less than 300 hrs. Motors serviced this year. New through hull drains, all new tinned wiring. New hydrolic steering pistons and lines. Hull sandblasted and epoxied last year. New lights, running and deck.

That vintage is smack in the middle of the wooden transom problems. That would be my #1 "issue"....hopefully it's good.

Tilt the motors up and lean on them. If the transom flexes, run.
