Good price and a nearly well sorted out canoe in perfect CVRDA condition.

Come an join a truly fulfilled community!

Unlikely to be competitive as probably 25+ Kg overweight, but just owning this beautiful boat (not mine) will give you feel tremors

No, don't think so.....he built Pau Amma III about the same time as my plastic boat in 1992.

I think that was stripped plank construction.....or did you mean another one? He may well of built more?

Thanks for the comments guys :D

K220 is a lovely boat and was apparently built by Peter Herbert in 1990, so technically isn't CVRDA eligible. However, despite some modern concessions such as the epoxy used in construction, her build and design are really from an earlier generation of IC e.g. cold moulded wood hull, fixed carriage, so I would hope she would be welcome at CVRDA events.

I've no idea what her weight is, but the hull is very dry having been sat in a shed for 15 years before I bought her, then my garage ever since.

She really does deserve to be sailed again and could be used almost straight away, but if she was stripped back to bare wood and revarnished she would be stunning. I had originally planned to do this, but unfortunately my other project (Merlin 2500) is taking up my time, plus it would be easier if I had the full garage space back
