Some balsa to strengthen the flat panels and then some ply to stiffen the whole structure.

Making the ply stiffening is a bit like doing a puzzle - lots of different shapes that interconnect and together make a strong stiff mould that will last - miss parts out or design it badly and the mould won't last and will not give a faithfull reproduction of the plug.

More ply - you can see the structure building up.

The "tray" mould, which consists of the rear deck, rear seat, cockpit floor and forward locker floor and bulkhead, has been stiffened and we can start on the hull now - this is an old race boat hull that we have to make perfect again.

We'll lift it up, spin it over and put it down again!

A good sequence Cookee. Is the deck plug finished to a final surface or did you work the surface of the mould after it was removed?


Edit: oops sorry, I didn't realise you hadn't finished posting.
