Hey, y'all. I'm back, but now I have questions...

I'm buying a sizeable cabin boat with an I/O drive. I know that the ignition relay and the starter motor are toast, but was wondering if there was a way to turn the motor to see if it is toast, too.

I tried turning the prop with it in gear, but it just turned freely in Forward and with a little clanking in Reverse. Is this normal turning easily when in gear? I know it isn't for outboards, but I'm new to the I/O set-up.

The boat needs a fair amount of work as it is (new decking, some wiring, lots of TLC, etc.), but I just hope the engine & outdrive are servicable. The person I'm buying it from never used it in the 4 years she had it, but was under the impression that it ran when she bought it.
