I have just received sponsorship of the solo Transpac boat from Zoltek,
manufacturer of carbon tow, which is our preferred material for mast
building. For the last couple of years tow has been impossible to obtain,
and the situation is no better now. However, as part of the sponsorship
deal, Zoltek will supply me with one order, as much as I want, for my boat and others,
at a very good price.
If you are interested in buying tow for your boat or mast, the cost is
$AUS45/kg plus local taxes. If we are going to build you a mast, we are
happy to stockpile it for you until you are ready to start. If you do not
know the exact quantity, we will buy back any that is left over.
If you want it delivered anywhere else, please let me know and we can
discuss a price.
How good a deal is it? Uni currently costs $AUS100 per kg, is time
consuming to cut, and on tapered masts, wasteful.
Any questions, please ask. It would be good to place the order within the
next week. Delivery is another 6-8 weeks.
Any questions, please let me know.
