I hear the box isn't made anymore :( and seems there is no way of getting one from anywhere or anyone :(
Would you still have the mold...?... maybe willing to sell it so as to make one for my self....?

I like the position of the SB container which remains flat and is not mounted on the hinged lid. Less risk of spillage.
Clever design :y:

What is the minimum run to make it worthwhile?

Didn't realise it existed until recently. Should spend more time on Forum's.

Okay firstly the mold is not available and as it has a limited lifespan this is close to needing to be remade.

Getting more made became tricky for a few reasons:
1/ the size of this Ute Box requires the plastic sheet (no longer available in NZ) to be brought in from Australia which means a minimum order to do so.
2/ The above meant that to do a run requires a minimum of 50 units and given the size of Assassin Composites it means a massive out lay up front and this also required a commitment from Coromandel Kayak Adventures NZ's dealer for them.

It all got way to hard and I even considered making them out of fiberglass but its a very difficult time consuming job that would not be as good as the thermoformed version.

The only option available to anyone wanting these is sell your kayak and by a Trident 4.3 from Coromandel Kayak Adventures that includes a Ute Box as part of the package. But don't sit on the fence as we only have 5 units remaining.
The Trident Package includes:
Ocean Kayak Ultra 4.3
Quick Release Running Anchor System
Assassin Composites Ute Box

The cost is $2499
Add Rudder $2799

This price is very competitive to other kayak models offering the same center pod system and the quality of the kayaks finish and rigidness of plastic is way higher, plus the center pod Ute Box doesn't leak also.

PM me if you are keen to upgrade but once they are gone that's it no more Ute Boxes for the 4.3/4.7

Thanks for the explanation Rob, totally understand the difficulties. Just sad to see it not work out - it was on my list since that Barrier trip :(
