I have a 1974 Mk1 Zodiac that is sill in good shape. Our Coast Guard unit is using a 1996 H640 Hurricane and the tubs still hold air though they look a little rough.

I have a 1986 model zodiac MKIII grand raid. Its hypalon tubes are original and keeps the air very vell. But need a second floor replacement as can be seen in below pictures. There is no sunburn or scrach on tubes they are like new.
Also i m thinking to replace with a rigid fiberglass bottom, i dont know is it worth to do and what costs.

This is a small round tail, according to the stamp produced December 1973. Still going strong but think it has not been used much. Not 100 % this is hypalon or not but definitely not PVC.

Looking at the valve that looks like what was used on the "Campari" range of inflatables. These were made from a lightweight type hypalon fabric.

Yes, can be, it is rather light and the fabric is much more like hypalon than plastic/pvc . Purchased it for 15 eur for using as a beaching dinghy in case of anchoring the "main vessel". It still has original instructions, repair kit and oars....Wonder if those was already made in china as there is no remark anywhere where it was manufactured. This one has originally been purchased in Sweden based on the instruction language.

Campari in the late 60s early 70s made a range of inflatables from the typical dinghy type through to the transom Seadart which I believe was rated for a 25hp. The Super Mermaid was my first inflatable. This had a bow dodger, windscreen and a transom. I think the max hp was a 6. I don't think they were Chinese possibly Italian. It is a long time ago!

My first boat was a Campari Bluebird my dad bought us back in the late 70's. Had lots of fun and a good start to Sib's.
