Have had similar issues with our folbot as well. Frustrating to say the least, love the idea but not the setup.
Looked at feathercraft for a long time before they closed shop. Just didn't have the funds back then, now have two what I consider near perfect for us hardshells, an inflatable, a river boat and the folbot. Thinking though that maybe getting rid of a couple of them and buying a better folding boat is the next move. The price is a little high, but so is everything else I guess, and quality costs money.
Will be adding this to the research list.
