Someone wants to sell me a 1x

I know someone who wants to sell me a 1984 Vespoli Club Single. Since I
am rather new to this sport I am not familiar with the re-sale value of
this shell. It's in pretty good shape for a boat that been part of a
rowing clubs fleet for 12 years. The club is asking $700 for this shell.
Does anyone have an opinion as to how much this boat is worth?

IMHO, any plastic shell in good condition cosmetically and
mechanically is worth upwards of $800.  It's not as if it's a car
that's going to die at 100,000 miles.  The first fiberglass boats from
the 50's are still around somewhere.  Therefore, the 1986 club boat is
functionally identical to a $3,000 1997 club boat; how much less
should it be worth?
