Ring 21 Mercruiser 350 mag MPI

I'm due to view a Ring 21 (1993) with a 2001 Mercruiser 350ci magnum MPI fitted. Apparently the engine is spot on, the trailer looks pretty fecked and the boat isn't mint but a little TLC should see it right. Price is 7995.00.

Should I go and check it out? Is it a good engine choice? Or should i

I like the idea of inboard economy plus it is the closed loop cooling system type, so less corrosion worries. Apparently capable of 70+ mph?

Apparently the sterndrive is Alpha 1. Anyone got any views on the Alpha 1's ability to take 300hp?

darexms,

Did you go to see you Ring in the end? I saw that for sale a few weeks ago, looked really nice, especially the engine. I would be interested to know what you thought of it
