    I'm helping a client in Texas with a similar project. He build the plug himself via stitch and glue from plans I drew up. Lots of bondo and stroking with a long board to make a fair plug. It helped that the client's in-laws own a auto body shop so he was able to use those resources.

    He had the design and vision and I translated it into a 3D form. The project worked nice. Lots of open communication required, phone calls and e-mail.

    What helped push this along was we both did research and used our networks to work together. He brought in the rep for the hull manufacturer, Lyle at Rain Forrest Boats in Mexico, and all 3 of us knocked our heads together to make things work. The plugs are done and molds being made next week! Can't wait to see how he does. Very innovative and applicable idea.

    I knew only the basics about FRP hull production and design. But with the 3 of us working together, we all learned and grew from the experience. :cool:

    So my advice is to find a designer who is willing to take input from all sources and be flexible about changes. Hopefully he/she will believe in the design and do what it takes to make it successful.

    My clients personal drive is what really pushed things along. You have to have the determination to keep things on task and willingness to get your hands dirty if you want to keep costs low. My client took 8 hour road trips to talk to people, flew to the IBEX show for input, kept harrassing vendors for help, and basically did what it took for success.

    You have to be the project manager, group leader, and motivator. If you had enough cash, you could hire a company, be demanding, and have to do little work. But to keep costs low, you become an active team leader and member.
