I got this recently and have no instructions or even a way to know what model it is. I'll attach a picture of the assembled frame. I just figured it out and probably didn't do it the easiest way. It appears all the pieces are there and only have minor damage on a few.

So my first questions are what model is it and are there instructions for assembly and re-packing available? let me know where to look for identifying marks or if you need a close up photo of a part to identify.

Thanks,
Edward

How long is it? If it's 13 feet long, it's a Yukon. If it's 12 feet, it's an Aleut.

Thanks Michael! I will measure it and have the answer. Thanks for the link to those great assembly tips. Once I find what model I have do you think I will I be able to find specific instructions/assembly videos for mine online?

Most recent versions of instructions here:

Looks like it might be an Aleut based on the deck spreaders visible fore and aft.

Lol. When I got my Folbot in the mid 70s in then West Germany the instructions were in .....German

Couldn't get it right.

An afternoon and most of a bottle of Drambuie and it was together.

In a third floor apartment with a winding staircase.

Lowered it off the roof.

Second time is much easier.
