Is this worth a gamble?

Inflatable Dinghy - Tender - RIB Style - Boat | eBay

Is this worth a gamble? The seller said it doesn't have a information plate on the transom ?

Should I bid or not? Your opinions

I think I would leave it to the last few mins to see what the price is and if really cheap, I might have a punt on this.

I think if it were me I would pass on this, that floor does not look right 3 pic down the front board does not fit and it looks like chipboard (but hard to tell) so would need a new floor Marine ply very expensive.

It would have to be under 100.00 all in for me.

Just my opinion, I could be wrong

Yep pass for me too I'm afraid!
As Bartiny says floor don't look right.
I would be stressing whether it was up to the task if I went on open water in it.
I would rather pay the extra for something I knew was sound just for the peace of mind.
As the saying goes - you gets what you pay for!

Also the first 2 pics are not of the same boat as the rest of the pics, holes missing in the transom
