Perkins and Bottom Paint

Looking at making an offer on a Tayana 37. The boat has been in the water for three+ years. Any ideas (I''ll get real est this weekend) on having the bottom stripped and bottom painted (florida waters).
Also the Perkins 4-108 has "issues", leaking aft seal as well as another leak. Any ballpark figures on a rebuild for the Perkins.
One last one, Black Iron fuel tanks. Any idea at the cost of replacing these.
I won''t even think about this boat unless I can get a great deal on it. Other than those three "issues" it appears to be in very good shape. Yep, I''ll get a survey/rigging survey/eng survey.
Thanks,
Steve

Fuel tanks can be either easy? or hard depending entirely on how much you have to rip out to get to them.
Engine - have learned that cost of rebuild is mostly labor and that usually a lot of that is removing the engine from the boat to do the work because there is not space to do it onboard. (then replacing the engine)
Bottom job - you did not mention age of boat and how you want to deal with blisters if there are any. Just a paint job is one thing stripping and doing an epoxy barrier coat is another few thousand.
I had two boats fail survey because of moisture issues in deck and or hull. Three years in the water - you should have the surveyor look very carefully at this.
Good Luck Todd V

The Perkins 4-108 tends to leak some oil when in relatively good condition. You didn''t mention how badly the aft seal was leaking. If it leaks a little, that in it''s self does not mean the engine needs an overhaul.

A better measure might be how many hours are on it. How hard is it to start? Does it show blue or white smoke? Does it run smoothly? Any water in the oil? i.e. some color other than black.

I rebuilt my Perkins 4-108 last summer in the garage. All told it cost about 2500 in parts and misc. labor. My freind had his done turnkey and it was 10 or 11 grand including transmission. You do need to assess condition as that can change everything. Mine was in relatively good condition.
