As usual you have created a masterpiece.
I do have a question or two for you if you don't mind a pm from me.

I have the plans for a Schiada SS20 and a Ski Vee 40 and while I will be building them with wood initially I want to make a mold off one of them.
How wide do you normally leave the flange ?
Do you use a layer of veil over the gel coat?
Have you used Aramid or Aramid/Carbon cloth?
Once you have the hull out of the mold do you add structural pieces for overall strength as well as mounting points?


Hoping to get at least some of the high quality you produce.


Cheers
Ian
