repairing old zodiac

An old zodiac fell into my hands, and I'm trying to get it operational again. Repaired about 10 minor holes; am still having a very slow leak on the valve neck on one chamber. It has the front wood floorboard only, so looking for floorboard info also. Any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not able to make out much from the photo. If you take a better photo, or type the information, that would be helpful (as well as more pictures of the whole boat).
From what I can see, the boat was built in 1982. It is likely a Mark 2 C (12' 6"), based upon the stated 6 person rating an the payload capacity of 1500 lbs.

Show us the boat!

Thanks for responding; when I zoom I can see the details on the tag, but here's the info:

Type - 2355; Total weight 185; Max capacity - 6; weight capacity 4500; maximum hp motor - 55

Pics attached.

Something is not right about those numbers. If the boat only weighs 84 Kg (185 lbs), there is absolutely no way in the world it will be large enough to have a weight capacity of 4500 lbs. I'm pretty sure the "4" in the "4500" is actually a 1, which would make more sense given it's rating for a maximum of only 6 persons. I'd also be suspicious of the maximum power rating of 55 hp
