Walk away!

The tubes would need to be completely stripped back, all seams re-glued. If it's PVC then it was thermo-bonded at manufacture.

Like you all are suggesting I think it needs to be retubed if it shall be restored. Those tubes are totally busted.
It doesnt have an engine atm but considering that i get the hull for pretty much free it might still be interesting. I am currently trying to find reatilers that carry spare tubes. The hull is very dirty but in otherwise good condition.

If you can drop an engine in or play with her rear and turn to outboard then there is hours of fun to be had.

Tubes will be the key thing (I think) if you can source some at a sensible figure then enjoy the re build.

If not then, as others have said, keep looking.

New tubes are no longer available from Zodiac for that model. However there are tubes from other models that will fit. I put white tubes from a yacht line 420 on mine.

No motor and needs tubes...I wouldn't take on that project, and I am pretty adventuresome when it comes to projects. Mostly due to the costs associated with it, EVEN if you get the hull for free. You could buy a running boat for about the same and be enjoying it immediately.

What do yo reckon about this then? just came out on the swedish equivalent of craigslist.
Hes asking 75k swedish which equals 7000 gbp or 11500 USD.
including trailer and engine. Seems like its worth more right? Perhaps time to bring out the old wallet?
