2 years ago I bought a Chinese pvc zodiac for $350. Was fine first year. Issues last year. Spent winter in the house repairing all leaking seams, everything. Launched a month ago, first day seam opened up had to repair. Today, daughter in town. We launch it again, been holding air fine on land last 2 weeks. Today, we take it a mile down river, all good. On way back, she had to keep working the air pump so we wouldn’t sink. Another leak somewhere. Before this Chinese junk I had a real zodiac for 10 years, didn’t give me any trouble until the last year. Took to Annapolis zodiac and guy says it’s done. So I am DONE with this Chinese crap. But the zodiac cadet 260 is now pvc not hypalon like it used to be. I not sure about buying another pvc. Now, I don’t need a big one like y’all. It stays on a manual crank lift at marina May to September and is only used for putting down the river when we don’t feel like taking main boat out. I can get a Zodiac Cadet 260 roll up floor for a hair over 1200. Really don’t want to spend much more than that. Waddya think?
