Never buy a boat--sight unseen. This is especially true of poly boats. Whether new, or used a polyethylene boat should be examined very closely by someone with a keen eye. You must be certain that the keel is straight and that the deck has not slumped.

Turn the boat upside down and sight down the keel line and if it doesn't look straight from end to end--walk away. You might very well fit into the cockpit, but unless you just intend to paddle in circles....

By the way, another boat you might want to consider would be the Sirocco.
