Where can a find information about the Klepper T7? Model History, years manufactured, parts/accessory compatibility with other models, etc...

All I have been able to find are a couple photos that may or may not be the boat model and a couple references implying T7/T8 were closely related, and something about 1952.

Fortunately, all I have needed to get back on the water was to replace the blue rod holders. Took longer to find where to order them from than it took to do the replacement. But Would like to accessorize, maybe find a period burgee, add a rudder... any good sources, interesting accessories?

And does anyone actually use those old spray skirts? Boat came with one that seems almost unused, but would be interested in something a little friendlier to get in and out of.

Thanks in advance

Hi. I came across this website today (the Klepper T7 section: http://www.patcool.de/klepper/klepper-c-53_64_93.html) while researching a used Klepper Aerius II skin that I found on eBay. He seems to have some interesting parts for obscure models. The rudder seems to be the same across models, from what I can tell from his prices/pictures, but I'm not sure.

@ Steve: "obscure models" which do you mean?

The Klepper Wanderzweier 1929, for instance: http://www.patcool.de/klepper/klepper-w ... 4_133.html

obscure?
The Klepper Wanderzweier 1929 is one of the most common models Klepper ever build!
In huge numbers, thousands.
The Klepper scale is not always only the Aerius double!

In my opinion Granta "Sprite", Sport-Berger "Nuss", Germania "Spatz", Erbacher "Blitz", Wiko "SWW 450" are "obscure models"

I consider it to be rare.
