you might find yourself in the same situation as us Australians. we simply made the leap and started building them ourselves. theya re rather easy and cheap to build. from memory I think that the alloy wheels were made in the US

Unfortunately, the metal spinner's shop burned along with the wooden forms over which the wheels were turned. Frank Marsh, who made the forms and the finished wheels, completely retired from the landsailing world after the 2014 worlds. last I heard Seagull was the only remaining supplier. Any metal spinner can make these, the one a few blocks from my house wants about $5000 for the first set!
