I've seen a zodiac 285 for sale which was bought in 1998 not had a lot of use.What would the seams be like?

Thanks in anticipation

My 3.4 is a 2003 model and the seams are fine. But the only way to know for sure on any individual boat is to check personally.

The seams are welded and they will be fine. The glued parts however could be at the end of their lives regardless of usage. Be prepared to reglue anything thats not welded including floor and transom.
