Klepper folding kayak

Post by Whitey4567 » Sun Mar 30, 2003 1:29 pm

I have a klepper T9 folding kayak, it is about 40 years old,
the hypalon skin has hardened in places and although probrably watertight it has seen better days. The frame is in good condition as is the spray deck.

I can't justify the expense of a new skin for this boat but don't want to just dump the whole thing in the loft for the next 10 years!

Anybody have any idea what this boat is worth (if anything!) as it stands?

thanks

Andrew

I bought one in slightly worse condition than yours for £20 a few months ago.

Try E-Bay if you want to sell.

Or maybe the historic kayak group.

silicon fluid

I have a dry suit the rubber on it hardens up if it is left for several months.
silicon fluid or seal saver soon softens it up and brings it back to life
is hypalon a rubber based fabric? give it a go

I have five other boats sat in the garage as it is and am under pressure to make some space so I will sell if you are interested.

I am based just north of Barnstaple in North Devon.
