Post subject:  Can someone help me identify the model and year?

Just bought a used folbot off Craigslist for what I think was a steal. Unfortunately doesn't have instructions on how to put together which would really help, and I don't have. Picture of what it looks like assembled to show. Only disassembled pics. After examining the skin it only shows need for a small patch and was very flexible without any cracks. The poster said vintage 60's but I don't think it's that old.

Doesn't look like I posted the correct pictures, here's a few more. Really looking for assembly instructions.

Looks like a Super TSF. If you look at the first post under Folbot, you will see a request for assembly instructions. There is a link in that post will take you to assembly instructions that should help.

On this page are two sets of assembly instructions for the Super. One from 1948 and another from 1972.

Between them you should be able to get your Super on the water.
Enjoy.

To me it looks like a Folbot Pisces, which was made between 1988-1990 (other sources on this forum)

Here is a Youtube film showing 2 guys struggling with the assembly

Maybe better to read the manual first

Swede is right.
It's a Pisces.
You can see the separate bow and stern deck pieces in the later pics.
Instructions here:

The Coast Guard requires manufacturers to include a hull number on all the boats they sell. This has been true at least since the eighties. The first 3 letters identify the manufacturer. Then 5 numerical digits, which is a serial number. Then a letter that indicates month of manufacture and a numerical digit indicating year of manufacture. The last two digits give you the model year. The hull number will be on the skin, near one end.

Folbot must have been a bit slow on the uptake on hull numbers. None of my Folbots, dating to 2003, has a number I can find.
