Congrats!!!! Yes you did steal it if it is in as good shape as you say! I own a 1986 300Weekender and I can guarantee I wouldn't let mine go for that price. I'd think about it for twice that much! This is an EXCELLENT model. We LOVE ours. Definitely put in the drippless shaft seals. They are not hard to do. If you have any mechanical knowledge, it is very simple. You just need to get the right tools....-ie- prop puller..etc. The hardest part is getting the prop and the coupling off. After that it's a breeze! My friend and I changed mine in an hour or two and we had a &*%$% of a time geting the prop and coupler off one of the shafts. But it's a fun job. Enjoy her!!
