He said the vinyl looks good. I think it would cheaper and easier to replace a block in a 205v then redo the vinyl.

Could very well be. I think a transmission overhaul and a new block are pretty likely to be needed soon. Vinyl: $5k. Trans; $1500 and block $3k if youíre happy stopping there.

At least an engine or transmission you could replace yourself. Upholstery is definitely not a DIY

Just use the boat. I feel like sits its sitting in storage now its actually going to do worse than when we used it daily. I try to run it every weekend but sitting is what hurts boats.

I would bet that if he kept using it he could get 4k hours on the transmission and engine without issues.
