Engines are raw water cooled. Don't know how many hours. Manifolds/risers replaced 2 years ago. He has extra's. no soft spots on the floor. Transmission pressure plate rattles, but runs fine. Starboard engine needs to be rebuilt/replaced.

Boat needs to be sold ASAP. He is moving and is losing where it is docked. He will be dry docking it after next week. Make an offer, he is motivated.

Price dropped from $15K to $9k because he just found out the starboard engine needs to be replaced.
