everything you ever wanted to know...
check out this website.
go to the Info Center tab in the brown bar at the top.
it's all there... mold making, materials, etc.
there is also a forum on boatbuilding.
i don't think you will be disappointed.
I have a step by step process of how a boat is made on my website. With a mold, just picture it as a mirror image. You will be building onto a plug, and the finished side will be facing in.
No need to spend alot of money on the bi-directional glasses for a mold. Afterall, you want to build thickness and roving would accomplish that.
Checkout my site: WWW.SHARKEYMARINE.COM and click onto " Boat Building".
You will aslo find some helpful LINKS on the bottom of the page.
