Any body got a Trylon Sea King mould

Post by madcanoeist » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:17 pm

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.

I've got one that you're welcome to come down and take a boat from if you have no luck in the UK.

Thanks for the offer. Though I would love a visit to France, the costs would rather defeat the object of self build. Having seen the kayaks you have produced was one of the triggers to go down this route.

Thanks everyone for the offers. We have given up the idea for the time being, as my mate and I have had some luck on good old e-bay. Being cheap skates we did not wish to spend over a grand to re-live our younger days, and find that the body is not as young as the mind!
