good boat check the typical boat problems, Rot, was it winterised every year? carb problems they sit alot with bad gas in em. cold water intake impeller, gear box check for prop strikes they can screw up alot. if there is a new prop and nothing else it could point to a problem.Wayne
Most common problem I see with them is impellers going out. I'm going to assume it's a v-drive, so watch very closely for a bent shaft. A slight bend can amount to a whole lotta vibrations. Otherwise, that should basically be a 350 chevy, so expect it to run like......well, a 350 chevy.
Rent one and let someone else wory about problems. That way you have more $ to spend on bent toyotas
Any advice would be much appreciated
Just incase he doesn't buy that one, don't let him within 20 feet of a bayliner, and NEVER buy a boat with a force outboard. Is he looking to wakeboard or pleasure boat? I like 4winns boats, they seem pretty well built, but then again I'm more of a north river/alumaweld kinda guy myself. Otherwise I'd like a smaller flat bottom like a 16' sundance, etc. I also prefer outboards too, but that's really a personal preference point. Our work boats have two 150hp outboards, and one of them will cruise at about 45 or so. I love the look on customers faces when you come sliding up sideways to their boats, them thinking you're going to crash into it, then you just end up perfectly next to them. It also surprises them how we can back away from their boat or the dock, whip it one way and end up going straight in the other direction, all in one smooth movement. Gotta love a flat bottom.

Whats wrong with bayliner?
My dad is looking for a multipurpose boat, around 20' or so. He'd like to be able to pull tubers, skiers, and wakeboarders with it (this boat'll do fine), but also cruise in the delta (this boat wouldn't do so hot)
Make sure theres no holes in it???
