For Sale Robson Finkenmeister C1 Creeker+deck

This is maybe one of the rarest of boats, I'm not sure many made it into the country, it is a fairly unique been a specifically designed C1 Creek boat. The boat has seen little use and has the usual early surface scratches, but all outfitting is in great condition. There is one odd dink on the deck/...

I was just thinking continual production of a boat design of any type .. K1, C2, K4 ... Flat, WW .. anything. Klepper is a good call for this.

As the title just wondering ... I'm going to put forward the Jaguar K1 . Mine was one of the first in the country in late summer 1979, a pre production for an International paddler.
