While it's getting harder to…

While it's getting harder to take such a heavy package on aircraft without incurring off-putting fees, it's still the safest, most tested folding kayak option, suitable for serious conditions when properly equipped. A great choice. That said, ownership can be a little fussy. If you like to noodle about with boats, you'll like the Klepper. For like minded folks, Long Haul in the US is a fantastic outfit that has pushed the Klepper concept past the original. As Singer is to Porsche, Long Haul is to Klepper.

WE HAD BOUGHT the Klepper Aerius II (expedition) in 1997 when we were just married and before we had a home to live in. 40 years previously, I had paddled the same model with confidence the Bristol Channel and down the Rhone to the Mediterranean.

In our 60s and seventies now, we have paddled about 2000 miles on the Elbe, Danube and elsewhere. It's a fine boat and we have flown with it as "sports equipment" at very reasonable rates, with Airberlin.

I bought the full sailing kit but have not yet cruised with that. There is a simpler off-wind sailing rig that may serve us better. It's a fine thing to own... and fiddle with! Very much in the tradition of "Messing about with boats". The folding Klepper gives a good return on the initial high investment, unlike the small yacht we recently sold.
