want to buy boat how do i know its the fuel pump thats bad?

I am looking at a mid to late 80's javelin fish/ski boat for sale. The owner says the motor runs fine but acts like it is running out of fuel so most likely needs a fuel pump. This will be my first boat for the family, so I cannot afford a whole bunch of repair costs. I am very mechanically apt, just completely inexperienced when it comes to marine engines. Please help..... oh and the asking price is 1800 obo its in excellent condition, worth it?
