Hello, my name is Pieter de Swart. I live in the south-east of the Netherlands and that is were I paddle to most.

Since 5 years I started to collect Kleppers and Pionier folding kayaks from the fifties and sixties. My collection consists of the following Klepper-boats: t6 slalom, sl 53, sl 55, sl 58, sl 59, t6, t9, t65, t66, t67, Master, Aerius 1 (450-490) and II (520). The Pionier-boats: 450-s, 450-ss and 450-wa. If you have your own restauration-projects and you need pictures, information or perhaps parts, please send me an e-mail. Maybe I can help you with it.

Greetings,
Pieter

Welcome to the forum, Pieter. That is an amazing collection you have there! People here will appreciate your expertise in old Kleppers and Pionniers.

Hello Pieter & Welcome,

I just returned from The Netherlands where we visited with family expatriates living in Hilversum. I was impressed by the extensive inland waterways, all a part of the Marermeer and IJsselmeer, providing lots of paddling possibilities with numerous places for public access. Maybe next trip I'll take a light weight folder with me.

If I can help you with information: just let me know. There are certainly beautifull places to paddle in the Netherlands, e.g. De Weerribben or De Biesbosch or several big lakes (sailing) or De Waddenzee (sea). The only thing we don't have is wild water.
