Gatz Mink (red) for sale

Post by Barebowblue » Sun Dec 18, 2016 10:04 am

Hi,

I have a Royalex Gatz Mink, in red, for sale. Google it (other search engines are available!) for specs.

From experience this would make a great pack canoe for 1 person, or a short double for paddlers of a small-medium stature. NOT a canoe for tall and/or big people (I'm 6'3" and 120kg, and won't go near the thing!). Selling it as my son has outgrown it and moved on to another canoe, and my wife (who was using it and for whom it was a brilliant fit at 5'2"/65kg) is going back to riding horses.

It has been used mainly on flat water, so only has a few marks on the underside. Bows are in very good condition. I have lots of photos I can send if you pm me. Will come equipped with airbags (laced-in) and end-loops.

I am based near Exeter, Devon, and am happy to bring it up as far as Cardiff/Worcester/Swindon for a test paddle (if you know a place to paddle), as I work in those areas on a regular basis, if that helps.

Given its condition, and the demise of Royalex, I am looking for £800 ono.

Cheers, Laurent.

Hi Graham and Chris,

Happy New Year to you both.

Re. the Mink, Yes, it is still available. My deepest apologies for the slow response. We've had a bad festive period with family issues, which is why I have not been keeping in touch with the forum over that period. Thankfully now sorted.

If either (both?) of you are interested, please drop me a line. In all fairness, I ought to give first dibs to Graham, as he was first to reply.

Speak soon.

Regards, Laurent.

Hi Graham,

Good to hear from you. Yes the mink is still available. Chris had got back to say that it was not what he was after once he had flecked the specs.

By all means do pass my details on. Your fiend could also contact me direct on l.duverge(at)me.com. I have photos I can also passion for her to see.

Speak soon, Laurent.

Sorry for my typos!

I should have said "checked the specs" and not "flecked", and I did not mean to call you friend a fiend!!!
