  my klepper aerius II
  Posted by: old_user on Apr-24-07 3:01 PM (EST)
 

I read your article, and I do not necessarily agree on some points. Much of my use of my 17-ft. Klepper, designed to fit two comfortably, has been as a single paddler.
Unlike a canoe, if one puts just a little ballast, anything weighing 20 pounds or more up front, the Klepper does not rise much in the front and is a cinch to maneuver.
Also, unlike a canoe, one can get in and out of it in the middle of a lake...for swimming, for example... and it wiil not tip because of the front to back air sponsons on both sides.
And what other watercraft could one say is almost as good as new AFTER OVER 40 YEARS.
I don't use it much these days as I had a recent knee operation and my balance at 77 is not what it should be.
