I'm going to look at one possible tomorrow on sale by second owner for great price. Looks good from what I can tell from the pics. Is there anything in particular I should be mindful of or look for with this particular rig? It has a Mariner 75 on it looks like the original motor. If I like how it looks, after looking at it in person, I'll take for a test on the water this weekend. It will be my first boat, not looking for perfect but a good foundation and someting that will get me on the water to fish for fun mostly and maybe small local tourneys some day. I'm very mechanically inclned and great with electrics so dont mind doing some things here ans there if need be.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

The Pro Gator is a very strong hull. Great fishing boat. If you like the layout you shouldn't have any issues with the boat what so ever.

The motor is a motor. Make sure to have it checked out by a mechanic, or do some basic checks yourself. Compression test is a great way to get a feel for how the cylinders and reeds are holding up.
