Opinions? SIB rebuild: Winter Project?

Hey, What do you think mates?
I got a real good deal on this used Avon.
Should I take this on as a winter project?
I think it needs a new tube set, and floor.

All you need is... Rib Revive - Rib & inflatable boat tube cleaner

As they say..."Simply spray Rib Revive directly onto the tube material, agitate with a sponge or cleaning pad and rinse off. You will see dramatic results with little effort"

Dramatic results are what you need!

I'll have to get a bottle and try it. It doesn't say, but I hope its silicone free.
Silicone will impair the boat's ability to adhere a patch.

Doesn't look a bad little boat, worth a couple of hundred of anyone's money.

Naw..its just not worth the trouble.
Problem with these older boats ... the glue fails at 10 years..and unless you are prepared to spend a lot of time picking and scrapping the old glue off then re gluing it. .its not worth the effort. I agree .. cut your losses and sell it to warpa
