    Cusious if anybody has seen or owns the Fitz / lightning 25’ molds; if so, I am interested in purchasing that mold, or would allow me to drop my fitz into mold to redo stringer system

    thanks Brett

    Welcome to the Forum Brett.

    Do you want to use the mould simply to hold the shape of the hull while you cut out the existing (knackered?) stringer system?
    It might be easier to simply support the hull very well along it's length on the outside?
    Or is it already twisted / out of shape (re the knackered stringers), and you are hoping that by dropping it into the mould then that will re-align everything?

    Yes indeed Brett, welcome to the Forum.

    I guess it's not difficult to get things shipped to Panama City!
    Location, location, location.

    Are you going into production or just a realignment?

    Stringers are still holding fine but are rotten in areas, would just like to keep it flat no hooks and holes

    How do you know I don't have the moulds?
    No, I don't have the moulds or the molds, neither.
