I am a complete noob. Hoping for some advice.
I bought a Zodiac Pro System tube (terminology lacking). It was cheap, very cheap. $150.00. Bought it sight unseen at auction from a marine store going out of business. It is 14.5' long

Three of the 4 chambers are holding air. One has various leaks. All of the leaks that I've found seem to be around the seams, where they join the rope flap thingie and the seams that run perpendicular to the length of the boat.
The transom retention flap corners are torn or cut.
Other than that the "boat" is in very good condition.
Is this worth it?
Are these leaks indicative of a tube past its usable life cycle?
Are the leaks repairable?
I am a very handy individual and inclined to do this, but should I take it in if I've never worked with Hypalon, or patch it at home?
Does anyone have pictures of how the hull would attach to the tube? The hard rope like thing on the bottom is either cut at the front or maybe its not supposed to go all the way to the front I cant tell. The front skirt where the hull would go into is in good shape.
Any clue how much I would pay for a hull only in Canada on the west coast? Any suggestions for vendors?
Thanks very much
