This past week marked the 13th annual Flamingo Flotilla. Every January, a group of Folboters meet in the Florida Everglades and paddle/hang/eat pancakes. The Flotilla is “organized” on the Folbot Forum and any/all are welcome!
One enthusiastic participant was on her way home from the Flamingo Flotilla and swung by the Folbot headquarters. A veteran Folboter, she already owns a Greenland II and an Aleut. But she wanted something lighter and faster. So we hit the water in a Kiawah. We’re happy to say she liked the Kiawah! So much that she bought one when we got on dry land.
Maybe next year you’ll see another Kiawah at the Flamingo Flotilla!
Been on the shoreline considering a Folbot? Want to add another to your fleet? Now’s the time! We’ve got a handful of Folbots that were used for demo, and we’ve slashed the prices. Bring one home!
Pictured above are a Gremlin, Kiawah, and Aluet. We also have Coopers and Kodiaks available. For more information about making one of these yours, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Better hurry, because these will go quick!
Don’t be mad. We are not sharing this photo to make you feel colder (especially as half of the US braces for another polar vortex this week). We share Per’s photo today because we’re taking a mental vacation with our Folbot today. Join us!
Isn’t this a gorgeous picture? It’s a yellow Kiawah in the Bahamas with our friend, Per Haavind, in the cockpit. A former marathon kayak racer from Norway, Per stores it on his sailboat as he travels the east coast and Caribbean. He specifically chose the Kiawah to keep an athletic kayak that could strap on his sailboat deck without hampering any lines or could be stored underneath.
