Check out the 4th pic. And the Teton is a poly boat, so good luck fixing it.

I repaired an Old Town Penobscot Discovery 174 poly canoe that was much worse, with areas of the outer solid poly not just split, but gone in areas up to 4 inches wide over 3-4 feet of the hull at both stems, and extensive erosion of the foam core. Less than $50 of G Flex, along with some silica powder, graphite powder, fiberglass and Dynel cloth was enough for the job.

I don't mind a little wear...it's the "tear" that would worry me. :)

Maybe that's what the seller planned to say, just to claim honesty.

The proportion of the tear to hull length isn't much greater than that on the titanic, and we all know how well that worked out.
