Zport Folding Bike?

I saw this Zport folding bike on Ebay for $159 and not knowing anything about folding bikes, I was wondering if anyone knows if these are any good? I intend to store the bike on my boat so I have some transportation when I get to a marina. My boat is only 25' so I don't have a lot of extra space and a small folded package and light weight are the first concerns. I probably won't be doing very long trips, so I just need something that will last and I can fit my 6'1", 215lb frame on. Any feedback will be appreciated.

My Zport was the heaviest, most poorly made folder I've seen. Not a quality component on it. Mine was steel so not so hot for a boat. After that, I rode several cheaper Dahons and and cheap was the operative term. I ended up with a Downtube. A little heavy but rides great.
