My brother and cousin want me to drop on a outboard. Im going to check the boat out this weekend. Pretty much its $1000 and we would be each pay like $333. What would an estimated cost to go through an outboard and freshen it up a bit. The seller is my buddy and his dad gave him the boat. My buddys dad said he went through the thing 2 years ago and it ran great. Its been sitting in my buddys driveway since then.
