$400 for homemade frame
$300 for homemade oars
$1400 for commercially used boat
$100 sotar pad
I'm sure I'm missing $200 worth of change ...
Please show me where you can buy large 20mm and 20mm cans for $15 each I would love to buy some. Everywhere I look they are double that.
Cooler and frame are about right, except for the drop frame which I love on mine since I don't run it on day trips.
Those oars are bitchin' - I would love to have them. Rope wrap kit alone is $75.
Boat is in right value range.
Please show me where to buy used pad and pump for $100 each and those look very lightly used.
Firepan, table, groover that you don't have to make??????
Five paddles for paddle boating.
A boat load of straps?
If you are trying to lowball the guy minimize as much as you can. That is his starting price. It seems fair enough to start.

I know RMR is not Avon, but three year old private RMR is better than 10+ year old Avon. This combo is $2500, pick up new oars, paco and firepan and you are still set for under $3500. $700 cheaper than the handmade frame and old rubber.
And $200 pump.
I love RMR and they get better every year. The frame looks ok but I need a break down. One of those boxes looks wood, handmade or something weird and let us not forget table, pump, patch kit, groover, extra rockets and straps.
I still think it's a not a bad price especially before negotiating, certainly not a worst dealů.no offense. I would still take my 22 yr old ghetto raft to boat with you guys.
