Achilles 14' Bucket
Hey there. I am new to the forum and was hoping to get some opinons on a raft. Ive been looking at getting a boat for a while now, but I'm young and broke, so my ideal set-up will probably have to wait. I'm looking for something to fish, hunt and run mellow whitewater up here in Alaska. I would really PREFER an sb boat but that might not be in the cards. Right now I'm trying to keep the bill under 1,500, which i think is doable just maybe not ideal.
Right now there is a 14' Achilles bucket boat up on craigslist for $1,300. See link here. This guy says there is two "small patches" in the bow. Boat comes with frame and oars.
So what do you think. Good deal? Or should I keep scraping the bottom (of craigslist) looking for something better. I did see a 12' tributary with frame and oars up for 1450 the other day but it was gone by the time i got the chance to call.
