I plan on replacing the pump when I get the boat.
When the dealer took the boat in on trade in Feb 2014, they had their mechanics service the boat which included cleaning the gen heat exchanger and impeller.
Then in July the fellow who had been using the boat ( a deep pocketed friend of the boat brokerage owner) had about 10k worth of work done on the boat ( bottom paint, new cutlass bearings, impellers, oil change, ac work, etc) I think it was a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing in terms of servicing the boat. I'm not sure the deep pocketed friend even looked at the 4 pages of invoices.
Then when they brought in a different mechanic after I surveyed the boat , they
rreplaced the heat exchanger, some heat sensor that was on the heat exchanger and replaced a bad impeller.
At this point, I own the boat and plan on doing what ever is needed to bring things up to par.
All the batteries were replaced in 2010, so I'm not sure when they should all be replaced. How long do they usually last?

The nice thing about this boat, is it was built with the option of adding a flybridge in the future. It had all the chases and a different false stack design.
