On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to talk to Chris Lux of Seattle, WA. Chris contacted me via email to tell me about the vintage Klepper folding canoe he recently purchased, how he was able to get parts locally for this 40 year old canoe,  and some other fun details about this amazing boat that fits into 2 duffel bags and has a  folding Spruce (wooden) frame.

The German Klepper Foltboot was first introduced in 1906 – and you can check out more amazing details HERE.
