    I own a Wilson Fold Boat, is there anyone out there that might have any historical information about when these boats were made and how many may be still in existence.
    Thank you,
    Jody Bronson

    These appear to have been advertised widely during the early 1930s in Popular Science, Yachting, and similar magazines. I have no idea how many were made. About two percent of the total made may still exist if their survival rate is similar to canoes. See https://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/13053/ for more on this topic. Good luck with your research,

    Benson
