It should have a solid GRP transom on that one if my memory is correct, it's a lot newer than the other.
i havent presumed i dug it out during the winter as my boss wanted to sell it i steam cleaned it and pumped it up but only stayed infated for mins and all inflated in one go so the baffles were gone and he said its not worth repairing it so it got put back up in the corner

Find the leaks, then decide.
Holes are patchable, baffles are fixable and valves can be replaced.

The old one's deck doesn't look like the original deck at all, though that might be the angle. However, if you use those tubes you'll need to change all the valves. I suspect that one's early 1970s from the valve type in it.

Yes, though I've never done it. I've heard of people opening seams to repair baffles.

Unless the same person has replaced the deck, I'm looking at one and the deck looks the same as your older model,it's not something I'd be worried about compared to the rotting transom you mentioned...

The later one has a moulded floor with moulded transom supports.

I wouldn't worry about the floor having been replaced on an earlier one, unless it's laid on top of the rotten old floor.

However, if the transom's rotten you can bet the floor wants doing as well.

Have a go at fixing the tubes it's already got on it. You won't lose anything and if it works, you've got a spare set of tubes off the other one.
