I'm not selling, but if you're up in the Bay of Islands, you're welcome to try mine out (1.5m²).
The 1.5 has a fair bit of grunt though, I would recommend trying a 1.0m² first (The masts are shorter as well, which works better on a smaller yak) - 12+kts is a little intimidating in a kayak!

There are DIY plans for a clone here (This was my first one, and in hindsight compared very well against the commercial version for significantly less cost)

I would recommend bolting S/S triangular webbing fittings to the yak rather than the plastic quick-release buckles. The footing gets a fair bit of load.
I used a couple of penny washers, shaped to fit the curve, inside the hull to spread the load on the fittings and also bent the stainless fittings to match the external curve.

Great -- thanks for the offer. Not sure I'll be up in the BoIs this summer (just south a bit) but I'll check out those diy plans. I'm currently using a 4.3 OK trident. Cheers, TC

You'll need to reinforce under the foredeck with carbon/glass if it's going on the Sea Hawk.
