sunrunners? looking for info/opinions

Does anyone have experience with Sunrunner rafts? I'm looking at buying a well cared for used one. I've heard these were a product of hyside. Any info on pros and cons and general experiences with these boats would be much appreciated!

I have 14 ft Sunrunner that by everyone's best guess is probably 20 years old (which is about when they switched to Hyside I've been told). The person I bought it from told me it was 5 yrs old and I believed him from looking at it. This boat has no patches or leaks on any tubes and only one patch on the floor that I did last summer. She's been on the water over 200 days in the last 2 years. It's super stable and tracks like a racehorse. I love my Sunrunner!
