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.

    Good day all,

    I was wondering if there is a rough and ready rule for estimating material costs and (split) mould costs in polyester hull production from female moulds.

    Specific for roughly a 24" open launch, low powered (8kW)

    I'm thinking of about 5mm chipped glass or hand lay-up. Can you make a rough estimate from this? Like a price per mass unit or the alike?

    How about production in the Czech republic, India or China, what is the reflection on prices?
