I have a17'-5" Folboat of uncertain vintage probably late 80's early 90"s. It has a wooden frame, tubular aluminum ribs, a 4 piece aluminum extrusion for the hull deck joint (each side), Vinyl? hull and Canvas deck in 4 pieces, a plastic assembly on both sides of the cockpit, and aluminum/ plastic paddles. It stores in 2 red canvas bags. I recently pulled it out of my garage attic where I believe it has been hidden for well over 20 years and would like to assemble it. I cannot figure out how to get the aluminum extrusions that runs the length of the hull (currently attached to the hull) into both the bow and stern. I figured out how to get the frame into the hull but now I'm stuck. I'd like to sell it, but not before I explain how it assembles.

There is a collection of folbot manuals. The pics might help identify the model

Sounds like you have a Pisces. If the deck is 4 pieces then that's it. All other Folbots have a one piece deck sewed to the hull.
Does this help:

I didn't do the scans so what you see is what you get.
Good luck and enjoy.
