Passat and Master clips

Post by scotjack »

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.

kajaki-margaret.com in Poland sells these rodholders in blue. The are used for replacement of the old 'gummi' rodholders. The however don't have the bite of the original black rodholders from Klepper and they fit perfect on your Master.
