the signage made me nervous so I just snapped this. It looks like he sells big equipment. Im hoping that includes the rib if the tubes are usable. It's been there for at least 4 years. Had big twins last I saw but they're gone now.

My bet is on it being an Avon Sea Rider.

I'll try again next week to get through the gate for a better picture. I got excited thinking I'm onto a "barn find" although its not in a barn.

From the shape of the console and the tubes, it looks like it could be an Avon sr6

And the twins fit that description as well.

Ya, those salvation signs in contrast to the razor wire made me nervous.

Good eye 95gstnj....and from a hundred yards away!

An SR6 is rare in these parts. The tubes look pretty bad (split seam and multiple patches), the trailer needs lots of work and the console looks like it may have an issue at the base.

Has anyone found a ballpark price on tubes for an sr6 in the pacific nw? This would be the biggest factor in whether I make an offer on the boat. These tubes aren't fixable are they?

I'm at a loss as to what I would even offer the guy. He appears to have sold off the twin four strokes off the back and it's been sitting there in the equipment lot for years.

Ideas on salvaging tubes or a value of the boat as is?

It's so difficult to say, if there is no rips in the tubes then they should just pump up? But if you pump them up he'll want more for it!

I understand that hypalon is ok until it gets porous?

It is scary considering the cost of new tubes here. I cannot see myself ever forking out 10-12k for tubes. I read on here that this is the going rate for Hurricane 630 tubes. Ouch.
