Outboard engines + salt water????

I'm looking at purchasing my first boat.

It is an 01 bayliner with a 125 Merc on the back.

The current owner claims it was only in salt water for approx. 50 hours of its life and flushed after every use. The boat appears to have been taken care off very well.

What should I be checking during my inspection and what should I be concerned about if anything? Just water pump impeller?

thanks for any info,

I'd give the bottom a once over if you can. Take the cover off the motor and look to see. Even though it was flushed salt water has a tendency to get in everywhere.

like any major purchase, i would have someone check it out.
i wouldnt be worried about the salt water, as long as you flush them out, they will last a long time.
