first time poster, long time lurker.
I am interested in buying a Zodiac, and came across this one. I am not familiar with Zodiacs, albeit reading quite a bit about them online so I'd appreciate some advice from from Zodiac owners regarding this specific boat.
It's model 1247, looks in good shape (didn't see it in person, it is ~ 2 hrs away), but what worries a bit me it is made in 1978. Not sure how much I can trust it with this age. The seller said there is only one patch on the keel where it gets inflated, but no patches anywhere else.
What do you think (click for larger photo)?
