would you buy this boat?

1991 Hyside Pro 16 footer holds air well. Only leaks at PRV in floor. 3 small patches. All hold air. Skin is in good condition. Big issue I noted was I believe a blown baffle maybe 2. Deflating the rear valve on the starboard side caused both bow and stern to go flat on that side. Port side was good except when I inflated bow on port side the starboard also inflated. On deflation of the same valve, though, the bow stayed up on the starboard side. Weird?

In essence its a 2 maybe 3 chamber boat. If the stern on the starboard side goes flat I could be screwed.

He wants $1,500 for raft, Bighorn II frame (good shape) and oars.

I agree, it's not worth it with baffle work. Skip it, another decent deal will come along.
