Hey gazzy. Is this Vanguard an Advantage series or Venture series? Just curious. The first year Vanguard made some rafts out of Hypalon and called them the Advantage Series. I bought the first 12'er in Hypalon from AAA back in the day.

You date yourself MNichols. Peter has been gone from Vanguard for quite some time. IMHO he packaged up all the information he gleaned from experts and regurgitated it as if it was his knowledge. Holly recognized that and bounced his ass a long time ago...

The year should be the last two digits of the SN.
