As mentioned elsewhere in this excellent forum, within the next few months I will relocate my Passat and Master to our home in Kotor, Montenegro. Overall they are in good condition, except of course for the longeron clips. I believe these differ in size to those used in Klepper kayaks.
Does anyone know where I can obtain replacements, or is there a work-around?

(Once our guest house is finished (2-3 months), visiting paddlers are welcome to stop over for a few days - free!)

I have similar troubles and was wondering if they could be made on a 3D printer, or is ABS too inflexible/brittle?

I have replaced rod holders on both a Master and a Passat. The Passat longerons were the same diameter as the AII. The Master longerons are a larger diameter. I used a rattail file to enlarge AII rod holders.

Thank you "thalweg" for the solution to my broken and non-viable clips. You can be sure I will employ your solution. Now I just have to find the best source for AII clips.

I have purchased repair parts from Long Haul Kayaks (former Klepper Repair Center), and from Klepper America on the west coast. I have some spare frame parts for Klepper A2 and Klepper Passat, but no rod clips.
