I just bought a old dib bucket for $300, also off of boatertalk, or I would have jumped on this too.

2kan, let's go floating, something overnight. New?!?

I'll give you $940, a case of PBR, and some old smelly neoprene. Final offer.

I have owned old maraivas like that 95 and 98. I am 95% sure that you can solve the going soft issue by replacing the valves with new military valves. It worked for me. Its very hard to find those valves. But all you need to do is unscrew the ones in it and put in military valves in there place. I used a lite coat of silicone to stop any leaks at the valve. simple to do. My boats went from topping off 3 times a day to once every other day. Check the boat for sun damage on top of the tubes. And check for wear at the outfitter areas. Just make sure there is not too much white showing through the paint. Looks like a sweat deal to me.

Looks like the new buyers put it right back up for sale to make a few bucks.
