    Hi Guys, I've noticed an trimaran float mould on ebay located in NSW Australia, It looks like a float from Sodebo or IDEC and I believe Sodebo was Aussie built?

    Could be useful for anyone wanting to build a giant trimaran ;), maybe we could get Langman to build a couple of new floats for KAS :D

    Cheers DAVE

    Corley epoxy coated

    I believe Boatspeed built Sodebo and Oman Air Majan from the same molds. I wonder whether someone will snap these up to make a mega pod cat? It's been done before with some success.

    Wow that is awesome. I wish I could get it to the USA, but I'm afraid packing and shipping will cost more than the molds.

    What is the beam of the hull?

    You might squeak the molds into a 40' container if they could be angled with one end high and one low (they seperate into two parts). When I priced shipping a 40' container from Seattle to Melbourne in Australia it worked out to a little over $5000 AUD. It says on the listing that the hulls are 1.2 metres in beam.
