Banana shark

If i'm not mistaken this is the plug used to make the mould and is now useless?
Kitten, is this the leisure version, when can we expect to see one in the flesh?

It was indeed the plug, though did you have to spoil the fun so quick,
Moulds are nearly preped, so in the flesh soon as. Just a few wrinkles to iron out.

Pete 7 if you wish to splash a boat you are welcombe to come down to the workshop and use our tools and materials pm me for directions. BUT DON'T TELL ANYONE YOU ARE COMMING, AND ONLY BOOK A ONE WAY TICKET!!!!!

That's me in the bottom corner of the photo being completely useless (not a lot new there then!) - managed to completely bugger my back up on Tuesday putting bits of the plug in the skip - still it could be worse - I went to see the Chiro yesterday and was fit enough (just) to walk to the pub last night!


Lots of classy stuff to be fitted to the prototype (I love my gadgets!)

A lot of fine and careful work there guys. Well done. I bet it was a cool feeling lifting that mould from the plug.

Kitten, relax, I dread to think how soul destroying all that work sanding and polishing was to make a plug only for it to be used once. Out of interest how many hulls can you make from a mould before its toast ? then what do you use the last hull to make another mould ?

Look forward to seeing it in the flesh, bout time someone came up with something different, good luck.

Pete
