    Recently I was given two boat molds. I have built a few boats in my life but they have been made of wood. I am a woodworker not a fiberglasser. I am however interested in trying my hand at making the boats and finishing them out with the wood elements. The molds are "female" molds. I am familiar with laying glass over a mold but not inside a mold. Please share with me any information, advice, literature recommendations that might be of help. I am eager to move along with this undertaking.
