Joining from Anchorage Alaska. Just picked up a project folding kayak off of the free list on Craigslist. Will be posting pictures later looking for information.

That is the best kind. Now comes the hard part to resurrect it. Fortunately the frame stringers are wood dowels with brass ferrules, bulkheads are plywood, and the keel/floor is solid wood, so it is all workable with simple hand tools. Just need to nail down the kayak's id and see if anyone has drawings of the missing pieces. From the limited amount of data available online I am leaning towards it being a 1940's vintage Folbot.
