Contender or similar wanted

Post by Pike » Sun Nov 10, 2013 7:06 pm

I'm after a contender or something similar for some low cost
blasting fun. Preferably fibreglass and not more than an
hour or two from Bedfordshire. What have you got hiding
away guys and girls?

I have a kevlar hull which last year was fitted out with an alloy contender mast, a carbon boom that came with the hull, plus various bits and pieces that go together to make a single trap blasting boat. It is shorter than a contender and narrower. The lightness of the hull makes it a bit tippy but the youth here had good fun with it. I am less than an hour from Bedford. If you're interested let me know and I will think about the rig options etc.

edited to say the hull is free to good home but has minimal fittings.

Thanks for the offer Nessa, I think I'm going to hold out for a proper
contender though incase I want to join in the racing at my club with it.
I've actually just spotted an old rondar contender on
Apolloduck which might be a possibility.
