My Klepper is in pretty good shaped and I would like to re-waterproof all of it's fabric. I looks just like this one in this post:

1. Anyone know what material the hull is made out of? Newer Kleppers seem to be made out of hyplalon, but I think mine predates that.
2. Any inexpensive suggestions to coat the material?
Klepper's website offers this( ... 09135.html), but again I'm not sure this would work on my older model. Also, I would like to avoid international shipping if possible.

Thank you!

Older Klepper hulls were made of a rubber coated cotton canvas. Klepper sold a product for recoating, but once the rubber dries out and starts cracking its days are numbered.

Long Haul can make a new hypalon hull and sew it to a good deck for about half the price of a complete hull. They did a hull for my 60s era Klepper Master that came out great.
