This was only used twice in its life. Picture shows some paint rubbed off from beaching on a rocky shore. No wood damage. comes with oars. There is an inside crack in a plank above the waterline that does not go thru to the outside. The maker told me to leave it, as it does not affect the performance of the boat. Always stored inside.
I rowed this boat for a weekend and it glides on only 3 inches of water. Check out youtube for much more information on these incredible little boats.  Delivery may be possible on the east coast, depending on your location, we can discuss price.
