    Biggest clues will be the workmanship. If it looks like the guy put effort and care into building it you are probably better off than one that looks like a cobbled together mess. Look for silicone or 5200 sloppily applied, expanding foam, wired and hoses not fastened to the hull/ engine etc.

    Most if not all are a flaming joke. Would be better to get one built from scratch by a reputable builder.
