The owner may very well have also priced the boat "knowing" that the issue you found was there! So the boat was priced with the fix discounted already, hence reluctance of the owner to negotiate the fix$$. To me, at $75, plus 5K fix, a boat that is normally selling for 90-125K, not too bad a deal!
Then again, the newer one for 25K would ot be too bad a deal either........what in reality is on that boat the cheaper one does not, other than than the core fix?
By the way, my boat is an 85! No issues with it either. Altho there were a few fix's to do it too.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
