    Call John Riddle at Riddle Boat Works in Lorain, OH. His telephone number is 440-949-2999. You can also reach him through his website at www.riddleboatworks.com. I don't know how much tooling experience he has, but he certainly is a good boatbuilder. Tell him I sent you.

    Will these molds work out for you?

    If need be, you can always add an insert to make it a flat-bottom...
    The deck would be perfect for hunting...

    if your interested in building your own mold, you can find some information about mold and plug building at www.FibreGlast.com if you decide to build your own i HIGHLY suggest using a CAD drafting program for designing a hull, (i use AutoCad,ProE7, And MaxSurf) i hope that helped!
