I've adopted a Pionier 520-Z kayak from 1960 and would like to share my experience putting together. It's a fine piece of craftsmanship and is very well preserved.

Welcome, M

Saw your comment on my Pionier blog post. Did Brian get in touch with you? I so regret not better keeping and actually keeping that kayak. It was such a joy to paddle.

Chris, yes he did and he assisted me in the assembly of the kayak. There were type written instructions by the previous owner in one of the canvas bags. I was overwhelmed by all the pieces and didn't know where to start and found this website and ultimately Brian. We coresponded back and forth and I got it totally assembled. It's a beauty.

I'm in the process of putting up for sale...it's a long, but interesting story.
