That is impressive, and thank you for sharing that. I just learnt more about mold making in this thread than I had got from all of the research I had done before.
Look forward to seeing it o the water.

Meant to add. Interesting geometry of the stern gear. Look forward to having a good look at this "in the flesh" as they say at the lakeside.


Carbon extras nicely done too!
