Quentin,

I think your best source will be the German site faltboot.org. Unfortunately it is entirely in German.
A tip on how to navigate that site from an earlier post of mine in the Pouch section of our forum:
Nose around the German site faltboot.org a bit. As an example, for this Pouch click in the upper bar on "Typen", then "Faltboote", then "Werfte". Enter "pouch" in the box above "Weft", click "filtern" and all the versions of the Pouch business appear! Click on "VEB Wassersport und Campingbedarf -Pouch", then "modellvarianten", select "Pouch-RZ85-1". Below the nice overall photo are a number of words in blue, clicking any osf these opens a new window with a nice photo. Click on any named "Bugsteven" or Hecksteven", especially any followed by "todhoelzer". This will show a photo of the deadwood, stem and metal trim.
Hope this mini tutorial in navigateing the, IMHO, most informative site for "old school" folders helps!
Apart from that, I have no personal knowledge of the kayak makers you requested.
