Buying a boat that needs a repower - nuts???

Okay, I'll keep this short and sweet:

Would you consider buying a boat that needs a repower? What if it were more than a few hours drive from you?

If you're inclined to consider the prospect . . .

What are the risks in the repower process and how do you manage them? For instance: what parts of the job require a present owner / supervisor (or a blood relative mechanic)? How long does the process generally run from haul to splash? When a repower goes wrong -- what are common problems? If you had your choice of mechanics on the east coast to do an economical, timely, quality job . . . who would you recommend (feel free to PM either recs or pans on that last point).
