Default Capricorn Boats

Hi guys.

Does anyone know what ever happens to Capricorn Boats in Canada a few years ago? Looks like they went off the radar. Thanks.

I can get the information for the guy that owns the molds if you would like to talk to him..

I have a couple of the Capricorn 72" hulls. It seems like it was laid up using polyesther fiber and resin instead of fiber glass and epoxy
I had tried to mount the stringers using epoxy, and it doesn't seem to adhere too well. I am thinking about selling the hulls. If anyone wants
it, let me know. They are 72" cat and apache.

Do you know how much does yours weight fully rigged? It seems like the hull alone is quite robust and well
built. Mine was constructed very well and thick.

That migh be it. I beleive the cat was 72", he is looking for a white one, if whoever has the molds popped out a few I'm sure they would sell.There is always someone looking for one.

Honestly, i have no idea how much they are worth now. I had bought them out of being spontaneous long ago, so if you like, feel free to make an offer.
I mostly into RC aircraft, so boats is an unknown field for me.

Unfortunately that post is 12 years old. If you are on Facebook you could try Ted Appleton who I believe is making a set of molds for the Skater - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1713832928917309
