    Hi everyone,

    I am exploring getting a plug CNC'd for small 16' boat that I had designed. I found someone to do it but they are not full service in house and Id require someone to take it from its 80grit finish to mold ready using gelcoat or duracoat primer. After that, I'd then like to find someone to make a boat from it using CF and nidacore using infusion. Any hobbiest or small shops that you know of that might take this on?

    I have hand laid bagging experience and I am tempted to ship the plug to Bermuda to do myself but I figured there must be some gurus' around to do the job

    I have a shop in South Carolina. We can do all of it. We prefer PET or PVC foam though.

    Look up jonathan Glasser. He’s on the east cost. He might be willing to do a project like that.
