** The engine(s) are visually inspected only and not started, no guarantees can be offered to their future reliability and/or maintenance costs. A sea trial allows testing of the engine(s), including checking start up, exhaust smoke /colour, fluid leaks, oil pressure, vibration, and whether full power under load is being achieved. A sea trial is an inexpensive addition to the pre-purchase survey, and is recommended. **
