My name is Ned. I live on the banks of the mighty Hudson River a few miles south of Albany, NY. I've owned several Folbots over the course of the last 30 years. I currently have a 60s -70s vintage "Big Sporty" two seater which I am restoring - as a fun boat, not a collectors trophy. I need some advice on repairs, and searches and inquiries led me here.

Welcome, Ned.

I am often in your area -- though I live in southwest Pennsylvania I have friends and family in the Capital District (Troy, Saratoga Springs and Scotia) and was just up there last week. I usually bring one or more kayaks with me, and usually at least one is a folder. I like paddling the upper Hudson, Fish Creek and Lake George. Will be passing through again in mid July.

Might be able to help you with some repair questions as they come up. Not familiar with the model you have but have general experience with fixing and refitting folders and sources for materials.
