  1. 170 gallons is not correct, 240 to 250 gallons, two 125 gallon tanks.
  2. Our 2005 350 has two 125 gallon tanks.
  3. DPS drives are fine as well as the OceanX drives. We replaced ours, they stay in the water 24/7. Have the outdrives serviced every two years.
  4. The sump pump that came with the 350 is weak, replace it with a Rule sump pump box that has a separate float switch and pump.

  12. The boat should probably be discounted, however, the seller may be able to sell the boat at market price given current tseller’s market for a few reasons, - There are many new boaters getting Into boating who may not be aware of the XDP problem. If the drives are in working condition the seller doesn’t need to disclose information of the XDP Drive issues - Used cruisers are in higher demand this year, fewer good cruisers are available. - if the boat is clean, in good running condition, low hours and has generator and AC, it will be attractive to buyers.
