Thanks shappattach, I just PM'ed you about this too. Not meaning to overload with questions.
I am new to the sport and trying to purchase my first boat, the price of a new one + gear is a little steep for me and I am hoping to learn from some of you more experienced guys. In my estimation it looks well used, but probably has some years of life left if the patch job holds up (who knows about that?).
Thanks again, I appreciate your feedback!
