This is where a crane on the lorry is really useful!

Now the dis-assembly begins! Removing the “tray” mould first and turning it over

Finished tray mould and plug side by side and the hull plug removed leaving the hull mould released. We always float hulls out of the mould where possible – it’s more gentle on both parts and makes life easy – We release the bow slightly, just enough to get a hosepipe in and let the water do the work.

The three main moulds covered up – the hull, floor or tray mould and the console/foredeck moulds. Gelling the hull mould, tilting moulds make it easier

First matt is on the hull and the gellcoat is being applied to the Tray mould – the light green parts are “plants” which allow us to make parts that have returns on them – they come out with the part and are remove after the part is released.

More matt has been applied to the hull and Tray moulds. Stiffening is also being added here.

Turning the tray mould over for test fitting into the hull – clearances have to be worked out before the moulds are started so that everything fits well at this stage – too much clearance means wasted space and extra packing as well as a loss of stiffness.

Foam stiffening has been made for the hull and glassed in, then the tray mould is fitted back into the hull

The big moment when the tray mould is released and everything is revealed for the first time!
