Finding age or serial number on classic folbot

Post by redyest »

Just assembled a long neglected old classic fallout I own. I'm wondering if there's a way to determine it's age. A forum post I saw I believe mentioned serial numbers, I don't know where I could find one, and another one said that there was somewhere on this site that had a list of changes with the date they happened that could perhaps pin things down. Any help out there would be appreciated.

Hello, welcome aboard. I've seen that spreadsheet of changes in the boats. I'm sure it's linked here somewhere, if you browse enough you'll find it. This is a quiet little forum, especially in winter, but a great source of information. Do you know which model Folbot you own? If not, it's dimensions should identify it. After that certain details of construction can narrow down it's age.

The compiler of Folbot model history is forum user "Flatwater". He hasn't been around lately. He maintained webpages but some of the links are dead and pictures gone. Still, this might help a bit.
