    Not sure if the owner will agree to me pressure testing their tank, they may not want to or may want a dealer to do it.... But that moisture meter can read through the fiberglass? If so, I am buying one!

    Simple matter to pressure test the tank.

    Pull the vent hose off the tank, install a short pice of hose on the tank and then a gauge on the hose.

    Pull the hose off the fuel filter and block it.

    Put 3-4 psi no more into the schrader and let sit.

    If the tank holds air for a hour or so your good.

    Home cheapo or any plumbing supply house will have cheaper ones harbor freight.

    Chief Alen, thats the one I am looking at. They are looking to go down in size and I am looking to go up in size. Our boats are worth roughly the same give or take some goodies on them. I am still hesitant if I want to go with duals or not but I am liking the thought of reliability since I want to start venturing further out.... Its was a brackish/bay boat that was always trailered according to the owners. What is the device called for the transom moisture test? I will buy one ASAP. And am I able to pressure test the fuel tank myself, or do I need to have a marina/mechanic do that for me? Thanks for your help Alen.

    Pressure test the fuel tank .

    There is a cheap device that measures moisture for the transom.

    By the way those Johnson's are maybe the best outboards ever made.

    Do a compression test on them, ask when the impellers were changed, also when the lower was resealed last, t-stat changed etc.

    Fresh water boat ?

    Came back to edit :

    See this one ?

    Possible new Trophy!

    I currently have a 1995 Trophy 2002 with 1996 Force 120, but might be trading up to 1990 2302 with twin 2000 115 Johnsons. Is there anything specific I should be looking at on the 2302 before agreeing to a trade? Motors are in good shape so I am not worried about them. More so the hull and not knowing what to look for on this model. Any help is appreciated as I am going to try to view the boat as soon as possible. Thanks!
