Hatch garage mould

Post by aptanet » Mon Dec 22, 2003 12:04 pm

If anyone is interested in making a hatch garage for their Kingfisher then let me know as I have ended up with the mould. I believe that it was probably 'tidied' in error at some point when in the compound at my sailing club, but it was spotted and rescued before anything nasty could happen to it and is now safe.

As far as I can tell it should make a garage suitable for all size Kingfishers, but I haven't actually checked the dimensions - I have a feeling that the size of the cabin entrance is the same on them though.

Hi

what does the hatch garage look like when it is finished? Can you do a drawing or scan something please?

Cheers

Unfortunately I haven't actually had one made up from the mould. It was actually rescued from my club compound when the person who had it changed boats.

From looking at it, and I think I have probably seen either a picture or one fitted in the past (but I'm not 100% sure of that) - if you image a larger version of the existing hatch in its fully open position you'll have the basic idea. The hatch slides under it when open, and at the after end of the hatch it has a raised lip - although this is probably an under statement as I think it may be tall enough to accomodate some instruments if you wanted to fit them - although the more I think about it now, that may be exagerating the size.

Please note that the above attempted description is from memory and looking at the mould (which I haven't done for a few months either)!

I am intrested in making a garage for my K30, I did follow an ad for a mould back in the nineties but to no avail, I have experience of working with GRP and would like to borrow/hire the mould if possible.
