quality is good in every ways, structure,skin and bags.first assembly was very stiff off course especially with the ribs 2 and 4.after doing it 10+ times its very easy.
our country is full of lakes and huge archipelago here in Finland so this is going to glide in many waters.

That looks like a real nice boat. Your location looks great, for interest where are you located, I am 28 miles off Lands End Cornwall UK just out in the Atlantic.

Congrats on your "new" boat. Of all the boats I have owned that is my favorite. It is very robust and it paddles and sails very nicely. Just a suggestion, you might want to mark the gunwales (I use two pieces of colored electrical tape, you just need to identify the top of one of each of the bow and stern pieces) so that you assemble them the same way every time. The gunwales take on a bend and twist that makes assembly much easier over time. I hope you enjoy your Klepper as much as I do.
