West Marine Dingy

I just bought a dingy at a swap meet. West marine Model # FRU 2.9. Would anyone know if it is Hypo or PVC? It reminds me of a buddies West marine dingy in that you can pretty much pull it apart! And yet it looks brand new. Maybe too much oatmeal in the glue. Going to glue her back together but wouldn't mind help on I D ing it. I gather the 2.9 is length.

Almost certainly PVC, I have a 2.6m, it is a "real" Zodiac, made in France with big Zodiac name and small WM name, really nice quality.

Re: West Marine Dingy

Thanks P and V PVC might not be so good in Mexico. It's in great shape and looks great but I am shocked how the glue seems to be, for the lack of better words not glue. The tube seams are fine but where the transom and floor are glued on you can pull it apart. Also the "inflatable keel" pulls apart.
"Other than the fact it's falling apart, it's great!" Westmarine slogan. It came with a sweet motor so I saw it as an extra.

Re: West Marine Dingy

Ah well, I've seen one with no floor being driven around, a wet ride for sure but it still worked
