    Hello all. I am looking to purchase a hull-mold but do not like the current deck. I'd like to keep it simple and build 1 new deck mold but I like the look/effect of a liner and cap, specifically a wider gunnel that overhangs the interior surface, especially in the cockpit area. Has anyone used mold inserts to mimic this effect? In the cockpit? Other options are building it out with foam and glassing in place, or a thicker hull and faired inside.
    What have you done or seen that works well?

    Thanks
