Looking for information about a Zodiak folding/inflatable kayak.

It has some air chambers along the side, so it's sort of a hybrid. Totally black, military model I believe, two person. Actually two openings in the deck, not a large opening with a two person spray deck. About 18 feet long. Bottom has four rigid sections so it really doesn't fold much. Hull is one piece including the rigid bottom sections. A few frame pieces inserted into hull, some frame pieces permanently installed in hull. One multi-part air chamber each side entire length.

I don't have pictures at the moment, but could get some in a week or so.

Anyone know anything about this kayak?

If you're talking about Zodiac, they have a web page and plenty of info.

I looked all over the Zodiak web site, nothing about this kayak (or any kayak, if I recall)

Took some pics, note that frame pieces are not in the correct relative locations. (I don't seem to be able to attach more than three pics to one post)

Note that I have more pictures if anyone is interested.

Some more pics, note there are inflation tubes along the sides. The bottom is consists of four full-width rigid sections (fiberglass? carbon?), two long and two short. There are four keel sections and a small number of rib sections. Some rib sections are built into the hull. The hull is hypalon and the deck is a woven fabric.

I have not seen any pictures like this on the internet.

See http://www.wolinfamily.net/pictures/Zodiak%20Kayak/ for more pics.

I'm interested in maintenance information, manuals, repair information, etc.

That's really interesting. I think I saw the seller's Craigslist picture, but as you said, the one's you posted are unlike any I've seen on the web.
