I am new to the forum and hoping that you guys can help me out. I am in the process of purchasing a 1994 Seaswirl with an OMC 115 turbojet. Sorry no ID numbers yet.
I am purchasing this boat as a known repair project, but would like to understand what I am getting myself into. Of course the price is discounted b/c of this. FIrst off, anyone know if the Seaswirl boats are built well?
Secondly, to the repairs....The boat was ran last summer and overheated (indicated by buzzer) and was immediately trailered following. It has not returned to the water since and the owner has lost interest in it.
The owner did do a compression check with good compression and no variation between cyclinders. I am planning to verify this. If this is true, is the problem most likely in the jet pump? If so, what are the potential causes?
Does anyone have any tips on how to inspect this boat prior to the sale?
Are parts still available for the powerhead and jet drive? I have heard that they are getting hard to find now.
Any advice or help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
