Hi, what are you looking for?

There have been some foldable boats on the market but probably none as light (4 kilo) and compact (13 x 23 x 70 centimeters) as this one that can be assembled in about five minutes.

Boats

Foldable Canoe for Survivalists (and others)

There have been some foldable boats on the market but probably none as light (4 kilo) and compact (13 x 23 x 70 centimeters) as this one that can be assembled in about five minutes.

You have been hearing about rivers flooding and oceans rising. You are wondering about economic collapse, members of congress legislating the end of global warming, and riots in the streets, and perhaps you are beginning to think that your “GO bag” could use a foldable canoe. There have been some on the market for awhile, but probably none as light (4 kilo) and compact (13 x 23 x 70 centimeters) as this one, which can be assembled in about five minutes.

Designboom held a competition and decided that Ori Levin’s design, which he calls “adhoc folding canoe” had merit. He has a design studio, Tsor design, that has a range of designs including solar PV concentrators as well.

It looks like a well-thought-out design. It even floats. But if a tsunami is on your list of disasters to prepare for, then you might want something a little more covered.
