zodiac 5.2

Hello, This is my first post on this great forum and after owning a small speedboat for a couple of years I'm looking to buy my first rib, and am off to see a zodiac 5.2 this weekend.
I would be buying the boat only, no outboard included in the sale.
Any tips on what to look out for would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance....
Steve

zodiac 5.2

hi is it a pro (these have detachable tubes)or one of the upholstered med tpe jobbies?

IItwill need to be cheap as engine, steering,A frame,console.seat,nav lights,vhf,bilge pump,trailor,etc etc can add up to 1000s if you go new, otherwise I always suggest getting a package and upgrading what is not to your taste.
HAVE YOU GOT A PICTURE?
a couple of the guys on here have zodiacs and I owned a pro 9 (4.7)

Check between the side of the transom and the tubes for rubbing / wear, you may have to let some air out of the tubes to do it, its quite common on zodiacs
