Free, but "buyer" must collect. Located in south west Scotland.

The Melanesia is a 4.9m (16ft) outrigger sailing canoe. I built it as far as being able to paddle it, but never completed the sail rig.

It comes with the bamboo crossbeams and float, though the float definitely needs replacing - it was always a bit heavy. It also comes with the Wharram plans book, which has full details for construction. The hull is not in bad condition, considering that it has been sitting under decking at a caravan for the last 10 years or so.

You can see photos of the build and launch here: https://www.marwynandjohn.org.uk/melbui ... nesia.html

Please contact me if you would like further details. If it doesn't go this summer, I'm afraid it will go to the dump; I can't really use it any more and still have another little boat.
