Welcome Bones! Great boat you have to paddle and/or sail, and what a great playground you live in to enjoy the water. Enjoy your new boat.

Hi, I'm looking for a folding kayak to store in the car or truck. Also would like an alternative for portaging in the Boundary Waters where I live or set out in Lake Superior. Currently I have a Rob Roy canoe that is light and maneuvers well, and a cedar strip canoe that my husband and I built. Paddling is in our blood. Thanks

Hi Ren, welcome! Perhaps you should start a new thread with your needs. I also suggest reading through older threads and articles about different boats. This forum has friendly knowledgeable members, but sometimes it takes a while to get responses. Good luck, keep us posted.

Anybody who paddles a Rob Roy, owns a stripper and lives near the B'Dub is aces in my book. ;-)

Turn and face south. Look through the trees for a house in the Kenwood neighborhood of Duluth. That's where you'll find a very recently purchased, used Folbot Greenland II, which you can't have but you and your spouse are very welcome to come see on the water at a mutually convenient time. We can brainstorm on the portage yoke idea while you do that. I'm still working on that "challenge" ...
