Greetings from a new member in North Carolina.
I have come into two older (80s) Aerius II Klepper Faltboote that my parents brought over from Germany and am beginning the process of restoring them. One of them is pretty much functional except for the fact that the crossbeam of the leeboards for sailing is completely rotten out. The other one has several broken ribs.

Can anyone give me some hints on replacing parts? I looked at Klepper USA and they didn't seem to have many repair options.

Thanks in advance!

Scott

If you are still looking try Klepper America, he might be able to help, also Longhaul who has extensive knowledge of Kleppers.

Definitely contact Mark Eckhart at Long Haul Folding Kayaks. There's a very good chance he has a replacement cross beam for the lee boards. If not, he might have the capability to make you a new one.

Or, if you can extract the hardware from your rotted out cross-bar, there's a good chance one of us can make you a template for size and shape and you can make a new one yourself.

Let us know.
