Deltacraft Islander Mark 1 Rudder

I have a rudder in my shed that was taken off a Deltacraft Mark 1 that I used to own (which was converted to use an outboard).

Just wondering if it would be of use to anyone. Would be a pity to throw it out.

Located at Yowie Bay, Sydney.

I own two Deltacraft Islanders a Mark 1, which I fell in love with, which is this one which is for sale, so five years later I bought a Mark 2, which I have been working on.

The boss says its either you get rid of one boat or I go ?

I really had to think about it as I love my Deltas and using them for fishing / cruising around Port Phillip Bay.

But in the end they always win, so I really didn't have a choice :((

June 2013
I have made a decision to sell the "Islander" that I have enjoyed for nearly 10 years.

Her details are as follows:

She is in good condition although the canopy and windscreen need replacing.

She is moored on the Killcare wharf, Brisbane Water. The last few years she has done almost no work and this year has only been out twice but still goes really well. There is no point in keeping her any longer, thus I will consider offers for her, say, about $8,000.

Email received 30 April 2014 I just had a telephone call asking if "Tardin" was still for sale. I sold her about 6 weeks ago. My apologies for not having informed you earlier. Can you please remove the for sale notice from the Club page? I appreciate your efforts in providing a forum for owners and trust that you can keep going with this noble effort. It is with some regret that I sold her as she provided a lot of enjoyment. However the last few years she languished due to a combination of lack of attention and age. The new owner is going to refurbish her. My best regards go to you.

Many thanks for displaying my advert.
I have changed my mind and decided to spend a few dollars on it and keep it as it is just toooo nice to sell....... yes I have become emotionally attached to it !
It's like thinking about selling a member of my family
You can either delete it from your site or if it is of any use to you, you can put a SOLD sign across it. I don't mind.
Again thanks for assisting with my attempt to sell.

By the way I got about 3 phone calls from the ad.
