I'm driving a 99 290 this weekend that barring any large mechanical problems, I intend to buy.  It has twin 5.7's and a 4kw? generator.

Can anyone with experience with these please give me some things to look for and/or ask about?  A mechanic is driving it and downloading the engine's history for me tomorrow while completing some other repairs.

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can throw my way.

Did you get a survey? You really need to have one before you buy!

No I haven't considered a survey.  I come from a houseboat background where surveys are invaluable because of the vast difference in the same models of boat.  These being much more uniform in detail, I couldn't see the value in a survey other than to find inoperative systems.

Broken stringers, delamination, blisters, soggy decks, wet transoms and inappropriate modifications can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repairs for what otherwise looks to be a great boat.

Having a qualified survey done improves your barganing position, given peace of mind and helps you sercue good insurance at a reasonable price.  Make any offer pending a survey that meets your satisfaction.

You will also want pay for your own survey and not take one from the seller.  Get a quality survey not a cheap one.  You may be suprised what shows up.

My two cents..
