What's this Avon worth?
 
I found a Avon 310 dink at a yard sale today. It has an air keel, but the floor, and seat are missing. It does have the 2 piece Avon oars.
In the past I have made a 1 piece plywood floor which works fine, except for storage.
The dink has no patches and shows no signs of sun degradation. A real clean dink.
Question is, what would be a good price for it?

$150- $200

Without seeing it and knowing it holds air????

Could be worthless or worse, a liability.

Holds air fine and looks almost new. Can't say I ever saw a better looking used one.
I can buy it for $200, but not sure I want to make a floor for it, and it still wouldn't have a seat.

Avons are indistructable witness the hundreds of 1970s vintage ones still going strong. One of the few Hypalon dinghys. New, a similar one would be over 1000. If I was there I would bite the owners hand off

Grab it! You can still buy a replacement floor. Call Defender.com customer service and ask for a quote.

The seat's optional. We threw ours away, and we just sit on the tubes.

Great dingy, I gave my son the one my father gave me.

Avons are fine dinks. I used a very very old one that was a hypalon. Looked ugly but held air fine.
