Good day, Paddlers!
I have just purchased a mint condition 1992 Greenland II (for my step-son and his little guy). I am a Feathercraft man myself, but the Greenland seemed like such a great boat, I couldn't resist. My problem is this:
I will want to set up this 1992 model for solo paddling, but Wanda at Folbot says the solo seating kit they sell is only for newer aluminum cross ribbed boats (!) DOH ! What are the ribs of a 1992 Greenland II made of ? And did they make solo seating kits for this year of boat ? And if so, where can I get one ? Thanks for any help.

Andrew, those older G II's used filled polycarbonate frames. If you post over on the Folbot Forum, someone who upgraded to aluminum frames should have some of the old frames around. IIRC, all you need to do is cut open the middle one and put a backbrace (metal strip or plywood piece) across the frame behind it.

Ask over there; a couple folks (gobe, for one, I think) made their own solo conversions independently of what Folbot sold in the old days.

Thanks, dave !

I have registered in the Folbot Forum. and will await any replies.

You're right about that GOBE guy. His solo spray deck is great!
