itsaboat, welcome aboard! I am a Hunter 306 owner so I cannot comment on the specific boat you are interested in. However, I share the same feelings as dnf. This is certainly a buyer's market. Spend the extra time to find a boat that is sound. This refit seems a bit problematic and the last thing you want to do is buy someone else's problem. Denise's comment about reinforcing the transom should give you pause. You could probably do a lot better for $5k.
