when i make new plugs, i don't expect to keep them as mine normally crack and break up when i remove the mould off it. if i was able to keep plugs and patterns for everything that i do, i would need a workshop 4 times the size, just to store them.

Very true with an original timber plug. but Leeway usualy cleans any wax and plastercine off, pops it back on the trailer, and tries to sell it on boatmad, or boats and outboards.

Tell em about ya Phantom 25 Lee, ...go on. (please don't force me to call ya bluff)
