Boat Building from Molds

Can someone point me in the direction on where to learn the boat building process from a mold? Is there a book or somewhere online that describes the process?

I want to build my own boat from a mold and looking for information on how to do it.

The only reason to use a mold to build is so you can make several boats. A mold, particularly a female is a costly way to make a boat. If you only want a single or maybe one or two, consider one of the "one off" methods. How many do you want to make? You'll need a stout mold to pop several boats out of it and it'll take several boats sold, from this mold to justify it's cost to build. There are no limited production run boat builders, that are rich or even close to it.
