should i buy this?? achilles 87' SD124 NEW
might have tripped over a killer deal.. or then again maybe not?
i know this isnt a RIB but i think this is the place to ask this? if not perhaps someone could point me in the right direction?
i am looking for an inflatable about 13ft that is beefy for river use (some white water)
found a few nice boats around but tripped over this one its a new never been wet achilles model sd124. its listed as a 1995 model but i did a little bit of research and it looks like this model was discontinued in 92. upon further inspection i see the last two digits on the serial number are 87... which leads me to believe its a 1987.
the other thing is we ran one of these as a rescue boat for at least 15 years ( i think its the identical boat) and it was abused and left out in the sun inflated all summer and the thing just wouldnt die.
check out the attached pictures, they are asking $1695 canadian what do you think is it a good deal, what should i offer? or is there a chance the material is cracking or something like that. looks to me like its never seen daylight..... i kinda have to buy it sight unseen
looking forward to your responses, hopefully i can make a decision today
