Whatever you say bud, anyone that is actually interested in the boat come look at it. At no point does it need $20k In work. Could use it the way it is if you wanted or do outboard conversion if you so desire and do it well and still not spend 20k still the cheapest rf 246 currently listed. But this is what forums are for right !

I estimate about $12k to fit with a single 90 and about $17k for twin 50's. I don't know what he is asking, but

Boat is worth $15-20k if it needs a motor (doesn't seem it does) and deck work and all that goes with that. Just my thoughts. You'll be 50k in when finished if you go new outboard on bracket and want everything proper.

I'm sorry I misunderstood. I will edit my post. For the record I think this is a great opportunity for someone to get into one of these and make it their own.

In no way is that close to enough power for that hull, unless you like 8-10 knots cruise speed. A 90 might get you 12-14 knots WOT. That poor motor would not last long. 200 single, minimum. could do 250-300 if you want a comfy 17 knot cruise not pushing the engine like crazy.
I have seen them rigged with 75-90’s most commonly for twins, single 150-250 outboard.
They are great hulls.
I like the rare “custom” short wheelhouse versions.
We repowered one a few years ago with twin 115 Suzukis and it was all the power the boat could use. This was not an eastern build it was an original Roseburough. I have heard eastern modified the keel and made it handle the speed better. If I recall this one would do over 30knts and climb up on the keel
