I have an 1986 Zodiac dingy made out of the same stuff, still going strong. Keep your inflatable stored out of the sun, clean, and dry for a long life.

Well, mine is not yet two years old,and am beginning to have issues. Where the "rubber" attaches to the "nose piece" of the keel started leaking air after about six months. I have finally managed to get that to stop but in the process the two "ears" of the nose piece have broken off.

I have had to reglue several things, most notably the attachments for the seats.

But we do use ours a LOT.
