Hi my name is Daniel.

I live in Massachusetts USA. I have very little kayaking experience but I borrowed my friends folbot and love it.

I bought a folbot but it is missing the middle of 3 ribs. I'm trying to see if I can make a replacement.

Greetings I am in VT. Post the model or a pic of your kayak. Maybe someone can send you a tracing so you get the right size.
I would cut one out of 1/2" black Starboard:

Thanks for the recomendation.
It is a Aleut. Not sure what year.

That looks like a later model, given the hull color. Does it have plastic ribs, or ones made of aluminum tubing?

I'm also looking for a poly B rib for a 90's Aleut Folbot. Mine is broken at one of the brass bolts.
Did you have any luck with a source of parts?

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
Joe
