    There is no need to glass fittings onto the mould just use the hose from the top .:p
    Sure you have to release the flange anyway so when you have released one side poke the hose in there alongside of one wedge and then go work on the other side . Most times you dont even get completely down the other side and it floats out . :eek:
    Its real simple and no banging and bashing of the product or the mould .. Its amazing how little amount of water is actually needed , remember when the water level reachs the waterline of the hull that its capable of supporting it displacement of the completed boat !! :confused: :p :D
