  2. Hi Nigel!

    Yep, these look really nice! They are a bit big and heavy to transport though - compared to a MicroMagic or IOM.

    Talk to Veikko Rihu, I'm sure he has the moulds and could make more of this boat. "veikko dot rihu at provoke dot fi"

  3. Nigel,

    Thanks for your interest!
    Readymade boats are quite expensive, expensive enough to have no commercial value 😉 The tools, however, are available. So if you're interested they might be for sale.
