1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    He's probably trying to dicker and bump your price way down.

    LOL..who knows, but for some reason he seems to think his way is the only way to do things, and I STRONGLY disagree. a steel frame for a 13ft mold???...That's ridiculous, as well as what the material cost are..He very well might be able to get cheaper materials for the prices he's stating, but I know what I paid for top of the line products and it wasn't cheap. It would just be nice to have a friendly thread then being told my prices are too high and that I got "screwed". So he built some molds...good for him, now lets see a completed boat..Bottom line he has his opinion, we get it, now how about moving on...

    Wood is just fine for that boat, maybe a little more of it, and some casters to roll it around easily.

    Lots of companies use wood for framing their boat molds. It doesn't mean its done to be cheap.
