    maybe even consider adding quick landings on mold for bag surfaces? some 6 inch wide particle board even that takes wax easily and won't stick. could clean up mold a tad and lay flat and just cove bog it on from backside, then wax and go, even scribe shape to cut to fit that way as well?

    Yes, I was thinking along those lines. Just a simple ply or particle board landing to give a bagging flange.

    Well I didn't end up vac bagging the float veneers and went back to the old stapler. Laying up the veneers in the polyester molds was pretty easy to do and I didn't need that many staples to hold everything in position. I've now popped a float side out of the half mold. I'm fairly pleased with it and the lamination is pretty light. A couple of shots after I cut off the epoxy blobs and gave the surface a bit of a sand. I still have to fill a few minor gaps trim the hull to fit the shape and fit the laminated gunwale strip.

    The next piece will go faster, I'd say keep plugging away as a mold pun!
