Hey all, just signed on to the forum. I'm revisiting my affair with Folbot now that I have adopted my Stepfathers old Greenland 2. It is in serious need of some love before it meets the water again but I hope that you fine folks can help. I owned another G2 in the '90s and literally paddled it to death. Bought that one for $75 along with another skinless, damaged frame and two Folbot paddles. Both were non folding, all wood frames from the '70s. A couple rolls of good duct tape enabled me to paddle that boat for over 2 years in Puget Sound (Lived in Washington then) before it finally gave up.

The new boat has wood cross braces with aluminum tubing rails. This one has a folding frame although the hinges are pretty oxidized. Hull looks decent but deck material needs some work. Any guesses as to it's age? I'd give it early '90s but really have no idea. Loved how my previous boat handled and am looking forward to rebuilding this one and getting my wife and I out in it.
