I recently purchased an old 17' Folbot Tandem with a wooden rigid frame, and have two wooden kayak paddles that came with.
There is a little repair that might be needed but I felt figuring out the model, and maybe the range on it's year might help.
Since I'm new to this venture I thought that this might be the best place to get some advice on my craft.

Here are some photos of the Folbot:

I'd think it's in the 60lb range

That's a very nice, well preserved Super TSP.
The actual weight is closer to 80 lbs.
The Super was discontinued in 1989 being replaced by the Greenland II in 1990.
Yours looks fairly modern so I'd guess it's from the 80s, possibly the late 70s. Can't tell from the pictures.
The Super changed very little from the 1950s to the end.

Thank you! I've been trying to figure out if was a super or not but it was hard to find information on the supers. The canvas on top may have been replaced at some point so that might add to its newness.
