The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I am looking for a complete set or close to of Copenhagen ship curves with or w/o carrying case. I have some basic ones now but I would like to get near a full set. If you have some or know of anyone that has any, I would be interested in them.

    Someone asked for the duck weights and I found them available together with French curves supplies. These are still used in learning centers and for those who draws on paper instead of with the computer. Really was hard to locate the source, these items are endanger species.!!!

    I have been drafting well with ducks made of aluminum round tubes maybe 11 cm high and by pouring lead into. They weight 1.3-1.5 kg. They have no hook(they bear against the batten witout hook).One heavier wheight (2x1.3-1.5kg) is usefull;you glue two ducks described above on a thin wood plank,then you secure the whole with greytape and you can even add a copper hook.

    Ship Curves


    I have 8 Ship Curve curves (C-THRU) if you are still intersted. They are new as in never used but a few years old. Perfectly clear plastic and several are still in the heat sealed package.

    Found them when our Engineering group was bought out last year and nobody wanted them as we were closing down.

    If you don't need them, please pass on my offer to someone else who may need them.
