Yep that's easier to see. With the extra detail two things come to mind...

Are the floor side stringers missing? They are essential... I can give you detail images/sizes/profiles to make some.

I see one difference that proves it is newer than mine (1971 remember)... the Zodiac logo is more modern. See mine which is the really old version like M.Chappelow's...



When does it arrive?

David

You're right about the logo. My 1977 zodiac (Mark Ic) still has the old logo, whereas my brother's 1982 Mark II GR has the newer logo & no bow hood. So Mike's ebay zodiac must be later than '77, but is probably earlier than '82 given that it still has a bow hood.

Hi david, yes I think the side stringers may be missing. It doesnt look like theyre fitted in the photo. Any details and pix of these would be much appreciated thanks. We drive up to Edinburgh to collect the boat on Sunday. I will post more pix of it then. Hey m chappelow, did you mean to post an attachment there? Could anyone hazard a guess to the age of this boat, im really hoping its hypalon.

Adam

Sorry m chappelo those images have just appeared, looks like its had a few mods inc one piece floor but possibly the same base boat. Prairie Tuber I hope your right about they age as I think that would make it pre PVC. Thanks everyone for the great response as always.

think 2 of us posted at the same time ,,lol ,,is there no plate on the transom at all it gives the date on it ,but a rough guess i would say its 70s ,,,and it should be hypalon ,,but they were quality boats and last for years,,only down side i thought were the rowlocks once they got a bit of wear on them they used to pop out but more of an anoyance than anything and the tube sections could be inflated or deflated from a single valve by altering the position which if left would sieze up ,,i have some photos but there pre digital and put away somewhere but they were good boats ,,, mart,

Pictures of the 1982 Mark II GR. It just occured to me that his one also has a bow hood! For some reason I thought it didn't. Ooops.

Adam,

Here's another to look at for reference... seems very like yours. A recent unsold EBay item no. 250503986734.

Even has that weird (to me) triangle of hypalon that comes forward from the nearside top of the transom.

David
