NRS Scout Questions

A friend of mine offered to let me borrow his raft for my upcoming Hells Canyon trip if I repair it. It has a bunch of pin hole leaks. He thought it was a NRS Otter, but when I unrolled it I found a rough looking NRS Scout. I am guessing that this is a glued boat like the Otter.
Can anyone give me an idea how old it is? The serial number has a WS103 prefix, and it was made in Taiwan.

Some pics of it can be found here: Facebook

With a boat this old is it likely the glue failing or is it worth fixing?

It's an '87. It looks like it's in rough shape but if it holds air and only has a couple pin holes it may be worth saving. The glue will be ok on a Hypalon boat, It's the PVC boats that have the problems.
