I'd say it's a Mk.2 Classic from around the mid 1970s in Hypalon.

Here is the 1972 model I had which is near identical. It was a Mk.1 which refers to length not age. Mine was just over 3m if I remember. Yours nearer 3.5m?

Thanks for your reply.

Yesterday I picked up the Zodiac and it seemed to be in pretty good condition. I noticed the valves were leaking a bit so I have to fix that first. Is it possible to replace just the rubber part of the valve?

The parts of the valves glued to the tube seems to be metal parts. Is that normal?

Also the floorboard which has to be glued to the tubes is loose so I have to find out if that's a problem.

There are some drillholes in the transom I have to seal.

Saturday after work I try to inflate her and check for leaks. I will measure the boat and make pictures for you.

Do you have any tips regarding any weak spots?

Kind regards, Kees

If you need any measurements regarding the floorboard please let me know.

Today I pressured the boat to check for leaks. I found out two of the three valves are badly leaking so I have to replace them. Also found (only) three other leaks on the boat.
I think they are fixable. Maybee I will use some sikalflex or polymax

I also measured the boat. It's 3.3 mtr from the tip of the bow to the tips of the cones

Using less soap in your mix next time will make it easier to spot the leaks with less foam. It doesn't take much soap in the water to make bubbles.

Sadly the old Zodiac died today. A seam reared open while cruising but I managed to reach the shore. After closer inspection all the seams were in very bad shape and loosend on many spots. This afternoon I binned the dingy after a short ceremony
