Hi all,
I grew up in Minnesota paddling tandem Kleppers on Lake Minnewaska. The first, from the 60s, has a double-thick rubber hull because the original owner had damaged it on rocks. We paddled and my parents sailed for years before they invested in a new Aerius in the 70s sometime. It's been in beautiful shape, but with medical problems in the family the boat sat in a damp boathouse through a rainy summer with no visitors, and has both black and white mildew on the decks and some inside. At this point we have to figure out whether anything can be done with the skin, and whether we have the time to do it. I hate to say goodbye to these amazing boats, but it may be time.
Looking forward to reading whether the post from Ottawa is Ontario or one of the others: Ottawa, Ontario was my home for 28 years, and I do miss it!
mmm
