Bent skeg wire on Esky 15

Our club Esky 15 is in a spot of bother. The wire, about 50mm from the skeg, has a sever kink in it preventing the skeg from fully retracting. If you try and force the skeg back into its recess, all this does is move the outer sheef of the wire at the slider end out of its position in the kayak. I a...

Wanted: Thule foot pack for Xsara Estate

Any body got a Trylon Sea King mould

I am hoping that there is someone out there with an old mould hidden away in the garden, that I could borrow, hire etc. I have made a few boats in the distant past, mainly Snipes, and a project slalom C1 from plug to boat. I know of a copy mould, but it has a serious twist in the hull.
