Hi given that Folbot is no longer trading does anyone here know of any sources of Folbot spare parts?

Watch ebay and craigslist for damaged or incomplete boats. I have read suggestions to fabricate frames from various plastics. If I had a broken frame, I might try to replace it with wood, plywood edged with hard wood to hold screws.

Thanks for the advice, my problem is that I have come by a Folbot, which as best as I can tell is a Yukon, which sadly is missing the washboard pieces. If I could at least find some plans then perhaps it would be possible to get something fabricated. In the meantime I'll keep a keen eye on eBay and Craigslist.

Vitaly is selling washboard and nuts from a Greenland II - see the "for sale" section near the bottom of the board index. Maybe they can be adapted to fit your Folbot? He's not asking much for the parts, so you wouldn't be risking much to make the experiment.
