For sale: 2 grp sea kayaks, Trylon

Post by PeteB »

2 kayaks built in my garage around 10 years ago using Trylon mould from mid 1970s. 1 layer woven Diolen, 1 layer glass mat, local reinforcement on keel etc. Bulkheads, PU buoyancy, front and rear hatches. Clearing the garage as moving too far from the sea. Collect from Dumfries area. £120 each, £200 for both.

Dumfries, spelt Southampton? Perfect 👍 I know nothing but they look good for home made

PeteB, do you know what the model name is? I think Trylon had moulds for a Sea King and a Sea Hawk - they look more the latter?

Hi Chris, when i built them i thought they were Sea Kings because that was the only Trylon version i was aware of, however, when i was out paddling with someone they suggested that they were the Sea Hawks. I have the mould still (which i have posted as free for someone who can come and collect it) but it does not identify the model

Thanks, Pete, the Sea King has definite chines, ie, the bottom and the sides meet at a corner. The Sea Hawk is rounded in cross section, with a long narrow bow and the widest point behind the cockpit.

Hi Chris, thanks for that. Certainly no chines on these and in front of the cockpit the cross section is very rounded. Initial stability is a little intimidating for the uninitiated, but the secondary stability is not bad. long narrow bow is a delight through the waves, and it rolls well when needed as it is reasonably low behind the cockpit

Thanks, Pete, that all fits with my recollection of the Sea Hawk. I was asking mainly because a friend might be interested in the mould. I think the boats would be a good bargain for somebody like P4ddy, apart from the distance in his case.
