RIB Mould, any size

Hi Guys,

I'm planning on building a bespoke RIB as a project and was wondering if anyone knew of any hull moulds kicking about for sale cheaply or being given away? Would consider pretty much any size but something bigger than 4.5m would be preferable.. Any input would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Alex

Ad says designed by Colin Sylvester.
Looks very similar to the 10m he designed that Ocean built about 8 years ago.

I think 'Biff' may be able to help you, if you're after the 'Larger option' and offer some good advice if it's the Bespoke Road for you

I don't know - I just googled him and it appears he might also have designed some of the Parkers.
