Have your oil checked and cross your fingers. Are there no fuel logs or other records aboard from which to make an estimate? Most of the boats that we have seen in the 1983-86 era range had, roughly, 3000 hours on them. We were at about 3300 when our pump went and our sister ship--Ocean Angel--lost hers at 3250+/-. PM me if your oil comes back dirty and I'll send you some information via email.

Take care
