    Hi there,

    Can anyone offer any advice on how to take a fibreglass mould from an existing 16ft hull? I would like to make a copy of my boat for a family member, as they always say this is a lovely old shape boat!

    What would be the basic procedure and can it be done quite easily? I have plenty of marine experience, mercruiser I/O, repairs using fibreglass, etc., and would like to attempt to make a mould from my hull, then a positive of the boat.

    I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has done this before and what to look out for.

    thx

    First, find who made your eisting hull. Second buy the rights!
