  • purchasing a 1993 Chaparral 180 Limited Sport with non running Mercruiser 3.0

    Hi
    I am going to purchase a 93 Chaparral 180 Limited Sport with a non running Mercruiser 3.0. The boat is in vary good condition, however I'm not familiar with this brand, but I like the look of it.

    I would appreciate any information I can get on this boat, good or bad

    The po stated that never had a problem with the engine, except for last summer. It started skipping, and water was in the oil. I don't know more than that about the engine.

    I have found out by searching this site that the 3.0 is a slug of a motor, and that the engine could have a possible cracked block, and that the alpha drive is a good one, the boat struggles to pull skiers up,

    pics to look at

    Thanks!
