This is a recently completed restoration project. Bootshaut by Heise and let me add that he was great to work with on this project. I found the frame and original skin on ebay.de. Fortunatley the frame was in very good shape with only a few repairs needed.

Brian,

Simply superb! Did you have the frame sent to Markus first and then have him ship the entire package to you?
Paddling impressions versus the 450S?

Thanks, looks like a great folder. Interesting that the design has the rear cockpit come to a point, vs. a square rear combing, unlike most others. Very nice, hope you enjoy the water in N.C.
