Hi!

I am thinking of purchasing 1982 model that is 17' long with two seats and sail kit. I am trying to find out if I can lift by myself without sail kit. This model has frame with aluminum and wood mixed.

thanks
Young.

Sorry, I thought this area was for Folbot only. I think the weight supposed to be around 80lbs? I can not contact the user and the listing in Craigslist is gone so no luck this time for me.

thanks!

Yes, a Folbot Super or Pisces would weigh 80 lbs. or more, probably more.
They are very heavy and require to normal people to lift.
