Acilles LS-4

I have been given an Achilles LS-4 inflatable. It is in remarkable shape and is about 10 years old. No leaks,holds air fine and cleans up great.

Are these boats OK after 10 years? I've examined the seams and all is well. I assume parts are available (valves,caps, oars ect). This is the first inflatable I've owned.

I'm going to use it as a tender/beach transportation. I'ts 8'6"long so not very large. I will tow it aft of my small sail boat, mostly to the San Juan Islands in WA.(I'm only a few miles away on the North Olympic peninsula).

What do the owners of these think of them?
