brand new 14' hyside outfitter is $4350... If it was my money, I would by a new one and outfit it. Buying a 20 year old boat with frame and oars for barely less than that isn't a great deal in my book.

or hell, get the brand new 13' hyside from the swap:

New Hyside 13 foot raft Red - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

and put a frame and oars on it and still barely spend more than they are asking for that 20 year old boat...

Maybe- but only if it includes the trailer.

I really think you could find a newer boat setup for $4K. My Hyside is over 16 years old and is still like new though so I'm certainly not saying anything is wrong with a 20 year old boat. I'd try and talk him down.

I fixed your thread title. Thanks to just one little symbol, now instead of making a statement that you've found a good deal for a Hyside, I've made it what you originally intended, a question about whether this is a good deal.

Good luck finding the right boat,

-AH

Not a great deal for a 20 year-old boat. My friend got a '97 Hyside, 14' for a lot less than that, and all of the baffles blew within a year..

That is a fair offer for that boat and setup. If he does't lower the price he ain't going to sell it. Good luck!
