Some from the 1970s are still going - depends how it was made/been used/stored. When I say cheap, I mean cheap...

Still, nice looking boat:
yeah buyer wanted 250 stg im dealing at 180 stg though i havent bought it yet there might be a patch on a seam only going by photos

It sounds like you're in the right ballpark, moneywise. The patch on the seam, I wouldn't be so happy about. If it's below water, it will probably lift eventually, above water it may just seep a little air. Is it serious? Depends on what's under the patch. If you're halfway handy, then you can repair these things easily for a few quid. Your call, really.
