old RS

I'm looking at an old 85 K100RS.
It's got low mileage, and has been sitting in my friends garage for years.

What do I want to look for in regard to maintenance issues?

Thanks,

That is great.

My uncle worked on the Anderson, and was on it the night the Fitzgerald sank.

He quit after that, and took a job in Duluth.

I remember seeing that boat as a kid.
