 Post subject: 1961 T8
PostPosted: Sat May 30, 2009 3:56 pm 
I have an 1961 t8 with the sailing rig and was wondering if anyone knew the approximate value of the craft today. All parts are there and the sails are in good shape. The hull needs a bit of restoration as it has been in storage for several years. It is pretty stiff. Im not real interested in selling, but was wondering more about if it would be worth restoring the hull or purchasing a replacement.

T8 is a touring boat, similar to the Aerius, but without air-sponsons.
It was built with the same "Klepper-quality" like known from the Aerius.

Since replacing the hull of a folding kayak is quite expensive, the worth of a T8 (like any folding kayak) depends very much on its condition.

If frame and hull are in old used, but still good condition, (what means that the hull is still good flexible), a T8 is around 400 EUR here in Germany. Sails extra!
If the hull is stiff, it means that it needs replacement. Frame only is about 150 to 250 EUR, depending on negotiation, what means that some people might give it away for a crate of beer.

The T8 is a good boat.

Hope it helps.
