1966 Pearson Coaster

Please help me make a decision. I''m looking at an old Pearson (1966) Coaster. It''s clean but showing it''s age a little but appears solid. Motor (owner claims this) just developed a problem with the starter. Otherwise, boat is ok. Two questions: One is he''s asking $7,500, is this fair? He is desperate to sell (laid off work and behind in obligations)so he would probably take even less (my guess is $6000). My second question is can a tiller boat be outfitted with a wheel? I don''t like tillers and prefer a wheel. I''m thinking of offering him $5,000 cash without a survey and maybe inching up to $6,000. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I''m buying the name here as I believe the Pearson line in this year was very well made. Am I being a fool or is this smart. Gee! Wish my IQ was higher...
