    Saw an ad for an inflatable 10' Boston Whaler Sport
    "inflatable core of Vinylin protected by Hypalon"
    It's a 1986, "new in box" with a "new in box" 9.9 outboard for $1500

    Two questions:

    1.) Can anyone tell me about these Boston Whaler inflatables?
    How long did Boston Whaler make inflatables and how do they compare with zodiac quality?

    2.) Would the hypalon be OK after sitting "new" in a box for 25 years?
