Pros - Those boats were built by Seaark when they had a Commercial / GSA division, best part is they were designed by Hunt (www.huntdesigns.com)
so it will be a good riding and seaworthy hull. Those hulls were engineered to pilot boat standards, meaning they are very tough, lots of alu.

Cons - Engines have a lot of hours, condition is somewhat of a question mark. You can see the skegs have a lot of paint missing, hence the jack plates.
For use in normal depth water you could probably can get rid of the jack plates, Hunt could tell you if those were part of the design or
added on later. If the engines prove to be a lost cause, a single Yamaha 4.2L 250 or 300 would likely move the boat nicely, only question being
if the bracket height is set for 25" or 30" motors. Removing the tow guard off the transom would clean up the look and make access a lot better.

Good luck, Jon
