Sorry to burst your bubble, but I think you should pass on this boat. FW pump sent out for rebuild? Usually just the impeller needs to be replaced, which is a simple job that can be done in the boat. Perhaps the pump was just an excuse so you wouldn't notice major engine problems.

And serious oil and water leaks from the generator? Plan on removing the generator from the boat and sending it away for repair. Assuming that the generator is the same age as the boat, 41 years old, it is not surprising that seals and gaskets would have dried out and cracked. Probably true of the main engines too.

I guess what I am saying is that it will be much cheaper in the long run to pay a little extra for a much newer boat, and hopefully avoid these problems. Good luck in your search.
