    Default Zodiac serie 1 question on price?

    I am new to rafting and have a chance to buy a Zodiac serie 1 10 foot with a 4 hp older merc. It does not come with oars or fuel tank or pump,just the boat and motor. The raft is in real good shape and he said the motor runs good also. He is asking $850. I am not real familiar with rafts but need a boat to play with in the Palmer area for my wife and I. Maybe some lakes and the Big Su It sounds like a good starter at a fair price to get on the water and I can haul it in my truck or on my Xterra. Does this sound ok or should I save my money? Any advice would be great! Thanks

    Sounds ok I guess, but it is missing some vital equipment being the oars, gas tank and pump. For you to source those items can cost you time and money. Therefore a deserving price reduction is in order dontcha think.
    Those items alone can cost you $200. Now you know what I would offer him.

    Default 4HP??? Big SU??

    I would only plan on going down river.. You WILL NOT make it up river from deshka with that. But the price is ok.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for the input. I did buy the raft for $800 with breakdown oars. I bought a 6 gal tank with hose and all connections for around $40 and picked up a pump at Sportsman for $17. The motor I am going to have Cordova Marine go over as it runs a little rough.I am very familiar with 2 stroke saws and bikes but would rather pay to have it looked at as I will use it here for about a month on a couple of slow rivers and Eyak Lake.
