At your size, that would be a great starter boat that you could hold onto for a while. I thought about getting one for a "do-it-all- boat to take to Mexico for play / waterfalls. Stable with playful characteristics. If you can get it for under $400, it's probably a very good deal. Check all the bolt holes, seat mounts & edges to make sure there's no cracks. A little oilcanning for an older boat is normal, but make sure it's not too bad.
