What can the Buzz tell me about this boat? I'm looking to add a raft to my quiver on the cheap. I have a fishing cat that I use regularly, but I need something bigger so my wife and son (3) can float with me. I'm from IN, so no whitewater, just lazy fishing floats.
From the ad:
It's been owned by us the whole time and used heavily in the late 80s and early 90s. This thing is super durable but does have a few patches and needs some love to get it to 100%. All main tubes hold air and 1 of the 2 thwarts has a slow leak. Comes with the foot pump and bag.
It is 12' 3" I believe. If that isn't specifically right, it is under 13'. To get it to 100% it needs a thwart leak to get patched and the bumper glued back to the body in a few spots. Other than that the body is in good shape!

I know nothing about old Avon's, but have heard good things. I know I would need to look at the valves and the soapy water test, but any other advice? If everything checks out, what would be a good price?
