The assembly process will go faster .....after ten-fifteen years of break in !
There are some tricks to assembly but practice....and a shady place to work.... make perfect.
We did use a 4 X 20 blue tarp as a ground cloth to build on.....very helpful if building on beach sand.
These long narrow tarps are sold for covering piled firewood
I have two sail rigs if you ever want to try it....very complex.....the older one has Egyption cotton sails !
A wonderful character of the Klepper is that they flex with waves ....great in hard waves and relives the structure from stress of breakers and the like.
In Baja. we would transport the boats down from Oregon, assemble them once and carry on top during the time spent there......too heavy for a Hawk tho.
