I don't believe they are still in business. As you probably know they produced a couple of Bill Garden designs (Truant 33, 37) and, I think, a coachroof version called the Saturna 33.

Don't think they survived the 90s here......

Thank you for that. My search must continue, I need to contact a Forum member called 'jimmyb.116' although I have not enough 'points' to contact him via 'e' mail.

One more post and you should be able to PM any Sailnet member.. Another member who owns a Truant here (the pilothouse version) is "seayalatermoonglow".... here's the link to his profile page where you can PM him.

Thanks for the PM James.
When I was down at Canoe Cove marina near Sydney in 2006, the guy that ran the boat brokerage operation said they had the moulds for the Truant 33, although I didn't actually see them. He said they had discussed building them again a few years prior to that but it never went any further than the discussion stage. As far as I know, they still have the moulds.

Look up Park Isle Marine in Sooke, BC. Roy Parkinson is the owner. They own the Truant 37 mold, and build a deck saloon yacht called a Royal Passage 370.

My old home town. Nip down to Wivenhoe and have a pint in the Rose and Crown on the Quay for me. I can almost taste the Old Speckled Hen and smell the salt air just thinking about it.

Just the excuse I needed - hope you didn't leave a bar-bill. Very frosty here, mud in the river is frozen at low tide.
Regards.
