I would expect to replace all electrical components on the engine and flush, clean and seal all electrical connections. I would expect at least a lower end rebuild on the engine if the engine was not removed from the boat and the oil pan removed and cleaned out.

Wanderers used non-tinned wire so you can expect to rewire the boat at some point fairly soon or live with very unreliable wiring.

The Wanderers had a lot of formica over non-marine grade plywood which would be suspect after a saltwater soaking. This would be a problem that will show up eventually in delamination of the formica and rotting of the plywood behind the plywood.

I think that I would walk away from this one especially since Wanderers are pretty common if you really want one and not especially good boats if this was just a purchase of convenience.
