Question: Mercury Outrage 2.0 Repair Estimate

My dad purchased a 27' 1999 Outrage 2.0, and wanted to do some repairs.

Looking for an estimate on parts, mechanics rate is $90/hour for labor. I have the prices on some parts, but on others I have no idea.

-Timing Belt has come loose ($40)
-Leaking Oil from the right motor/prop(?)
-Right motor also running very rough, knocking at less then 5 knots (timing chain/belt problem)

-New Fish Finder or GPS Combo ($400-$800?)
-Re-Wiring everything (?)
-Re-Painting the hull (?)
-Boat Cleaning. Lots of rusted hooks in the cubbys/fish hold by the previous owner. Cleaned it as best I could but there are still rust stains and dirt.
-Re-do parts of the console and and engine controls


Any help would be much appreciated.

Pretty standard formula all boat owners know. It's calculated like this.....

B.O.A.T = Break Out Another Thousand $$

Lol I'm starting to see that, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had work done like this and how much it cost.
