    Cool NEED Opinion on Hydrostream Vking Purchase

    Hey guys,
    Im new to this forum and I already love it!! Im in the process of driving from Florida to North Carolina to purchase a 1986 Hydrostream Vking YT... The owner is asking $5,000 which could be a fair price if it was in near perfect condition. The boat needs some work and Im not sure if this is a good deal and I need yall's opinion on the price.
    Here are some things it needs
    -It comes with a 175hp mercury (unknown hours) and needs steering cables
    -Interior seats have mold on them so might need cleaning or redone upholstery
    -missing the original windshield
    -Has 1 or 2 small hairline stress cracks in the paint which are non-structural

    Everything else he "claims to work perfectly", it comes with a galvanized steel trailer and a cover. The boat was fully re-cleared three years ago.
    He has no information on whether the Transom and wood work/floor work/core have been restored or not but he swears its all solid......
    I am driving up there with a compression test kit for the outboard and a rubber mallet to inspect transom.
