Over the weekend we had quite a number of people test paddle Folbots in various parts of the country.
One of the questions we get asked a lot is,”how long do the boats last?” And the answer is, “we don’t really know.”
How can we not know? Well, because — treated properly — Folbots last and last and last.
Just this past week I just got an email from someone who was looking for a part for a Folbot that was manufactured in 1933 (the year Folbot was founded!). So, that one has lasted a pretty long time. And we routinely hear from owners of Folbots that are well over 50 years old.
Certainly the materials have changed over time. But we continue to use tough materials that we believe will keep the kayaks in the water for a very long time.
And with a lifetime warranty on the manufacturing of all our new kayaks, we are confident that your kayak should last…. and last… and last.
