One for a brave man.. but curiously rather tempting!

I remember capsizing in a canvas canoe when I was very little.Dad ws paddling in rather difficult surf and my mother never forgave him or the boat. The frames ended up supporting the guy on Bonfire night

This boat would pose a challenge to the handicapper. I have no doubt it could easily be re-skinned with RIB material to make an unusual head turner.

For the brave indeed!!. The Klepper is bit akin to the Bond Bug I think, which was suposed to be more than capable of doing 70mph. The thought of doing 70+mph in a Bond Bug never really appealed to me. But then again... I'm a wimp.
