I don't see how you can go wrong with a $6000 boat. It's the $60,000 boats that are worth $6000 that can make you lose faith.

Al,
Are you in Trenton, NJ? The boat is at Miller's Yacht Sales in South Toms River.

you can tell its a eagle and not a grand banks because it has port holes up in the bow on both sides, a grand banks has no port holes in the bow section.

Buying a boat is in many ways like buying a car.
I've heard many times "get a car w a good body. Engines can always be fixed".
Boats are different but much the same too. Fixing the structure (cabin and hull) takes many more man hours than engines.
So Bennett I advise you to walk. Especially if you don't want to get into the FG work.
I don't think it's a bargain even at 6K. But that recommendation is based mostly on the FG work and I don't really know how extensive it is. It's the wood behind the FG that's probably the problem.

capt jerry,
I keep meaning to snap a pic of that boat but keep forgetting.

Close to Trenton. The boat was purchased from the pirates at Miller Yacht Sales.

Fiberglass repair on these boats is not difficult or expensive. Just messy. I rebuilt the aft cabin walls over a winter. 20 years later it may need them again.
