These are wonderful boats. I have even thought of getting one myself.
Things to look for:
1. Has a built up transom...these are often rotten.
2. Check for busted frames at the turn of the bilge.
3. Sometimes the keel strip needs to be rebedded.
4. Most important...look for "hook" in bottom of boat near transom. This is caused by a too short trailer and a heavy engine on transom.
