As each foil will cost more than a tidy secondhand car, I've decided to build my own. They won't be as light as the damaged set, but as anyone who has seen my car can tell you, that would be a better place to spend the money.

we made a new board (currently on loan to Voom) and gave the old ones away to a cruiser to use as rudders. 

have been storing the stainless steel fold up tool for making centre boards if you want to take a go at that-  no centre board comes out the same as any other out of it tho!

I'm getting sorted guys. I've got an aerospace engineer fixing the broken one and have bought a few tools to build a new set. Just have to save up the pennies for the materials. Thanks for the offers! Whio I'll pm you, I think Ken and I could both make use of that clamp thingy!

Ha! Have to laugh at the irony really.

 

The boat designer / builder that taught me how to build foils a few years ago proceeded to ditch the composites and now works solely with aluminium. Still designs and builds boats but no glass involved.
