Assembly Times

One of the most common questions we get about Folbots is, “How long does it take to put that cool kayak together?”

While we provide approximate assembly times, the actual time naturally varies with each individual. For example, while we may say the Greenland II takes 20 minutes to assemble, someone recently did it in front of us in just 6 minutes. There are others who would love to be able to do it in 20 minutes. It just depends on the person.

I recently received an email from Craig N, in Salisbury, NC, who put another spin on the process. In talking about his new Edisto, he said:

So far the boat has been perfect.   My only issue is that it takes over an hour to get it into the water.  That is about 15 minutes to put it together and most of an hour to answer questions of the people that gather around the boat– it is like a magnet.

OK, so we don’t take account the time it takes to talk to the folks who always show up to watch.

Then again, I don’t claim I can actually assemble the Citibot in about 20 seconds:
