Hi ... My name is Andy Crane and I live in Salem, Oregon. I started building Folbots in 1970, over time a couple of Greenlands, and one Sporty (sold to John Haide). Moved on to the fixed models, one Greenland and then a Yukon. Two years ago, I sold the Yukon to a friend of John's. Currently no boats, even sold my inflatable poonton boat this year. 'Times change'.

I use the name 'Vanman' as that was my primary vehicle for camping and carrying my Greenland for many years. I had some great times with those two friends, especially on the Folbot outings. Sorry to hear about the loss of the Folbot company, but the Folbot family and memories will live on forever. 'Some things never change'

Welcome to the new home for Folbot refugees.
Do you have any pictures of your many Folbots?
Perhaps it's time to own one again. There are lots of used ones out there.
