    Had the exact same boat years ago. Yes, check for stringer and transom rot. The trim tabs are undersized which cause control issues, but can easily be replaced with wider, deeper tabs without changing the ram. Also, check the bulkhead separating the cockpit from the cabin. Mine had become loose since it was only a type of pressboard pieces held together with angle brackets and screws. Found it to be a bit tall for the narrow beam - good for trailering, but not the best for stability...

    Is there any update on this thread?

    Something's wrong... That boat should bring at least $10,000 if it is in mint condition. Definitely check the transom, stringers, floor, front deck and motor mounts for rot

    I've seen them sell for under $5000 here and that's without needing repower.
