Good deal?

I've been away for a while, but summer is coming back!

I'm looking at a local sale on a 14' Avon bucket boat. Seller says it's been patched quite a bit but hold air well. $900. I don't have a job, and I buy too much gear for all sorts of outdoor pursuits, but this seems like it might be too good a deal to pass up.


I know... this sounds like internet therapy for my issues, and it probably is.

Sounds steep, if its just the rubber, but I don't know the market that well.

Yeah, for a patched up bucket boat I think you could do better. I'd sooner buy one of the chinese/ korean boats with a SB floor. My $0.02:
Come up with another $500-$600 to make that happen, even if it takes you longer...

Thanks for the feedback. I guess I must have thought it was a good deal just because it would be about $4000 new. I'll hold off.
