that invisible imaginary raft should be able to do whatever you want it to do. Go for it! spend however much money on it you want.

I once floated 'THIS" raft down a river. It was fun. I would do it again. But in reality, I like that raft much better. You should just buy that raft.

Looks like a class 1 or 2 boat that has only two chambers and is a bail bucket boat to boot. I'd personally pass on that boat no matter what the price.

All in all it looks to be in good shape and may I dare say a step up from the cheapest of boats. I really wouldn't want to trust the raft beyond road side boating or be willing to walk out if need be. I'd run that boat in up to mild straight forward class 3. Hell if I had a need for a small raft to dink around in and put in the trunk of my car, then I might give 50 US bucks of it. If you were hoping to do long or overniters then I'd pass completely.

Just guessing, is it a campmore?

I have a yellow boat similar to that one, that I dug out of the trash in japan in the early 90's (still holds air with no patches) not a very big boat (very small) the only thing I've ever used it for was snorkeling in japan, and I've run it down the boise river (in boise) but you can ride an inflatable sleeping pad down that stretch.. for $50 or less.. it's probably an okay toy.
