That is a good deal. The motor alone is worth that. If you want to test the motor, run it in a barrel of water. First make sure there is lube in the lower unit by removing the bottom screw on the gearcase. If water comes out or the lube is milky, you have a bad seal somewhere.
Make sure you use fresh gas and the correct mix, which would be 50:1
Crank it and see what happens.
Let us know if you have any problems with it or other questions.
Oh, and make sure the transom on that boat is good and solid.
