I know the boat and she's not been used for about 4-5 years due to illness. Very well kept for years prior by the owner, though sadly sparsely used. The 2001 Ram Ficht motors are only as good as the Evinrude tech servicing them. I used to run a 2001 Rude Ram 225 high output on my Schiada ski-boat, and that was not a problem when I had Al Stoker at John's Custom Marine to baby it, but when he and his father John closed shop it was time to go Japanese. In other words, time for re-power used or new and an additional refurbishment of a minimum of $10k-$15k and one would have a nice 256 Cuddycon with great future resale value.
