We'll see how things check out in the morning...
If by red flag, you mean you would have expected the boat price to reflect this, you're learning a very important lesson. Buying a boat under $5k can always have a few issues that will cost more than one paid for the boat and will not appreciably increase its value. Maybe said differently, before these were done, the boat was technically worth nothing.
