1957 Century resorter w/ 6 cylinder nordberg straight 6

by Scott Wisniewski

I am looking to purchase a 1957 Century 18' resorter wooden boat.

The boat and motor were restored in 2008.

Very nice shape including the bottom.

The boat has had little use and stored inside since then.

Winterized in 2011.

The owner says "The inspection also showed that there is some play in the driveshaft".

Engine is a straight six Nordberg with 257 hrs. on it.

Is this a deal breaker?

Is it really expensive to fix?

Is this a big issue?

Should it be and/or does it need to be fixed?

Is this telling of a different problem.

Would really appreciate any feedback, Scott Wisniewski / bswchi2@att.net
