I am now going to make the same hull from balsa and plastic sheet, add the chines and when I feel it is right, make a glass mould. I can then produce a one piece hull for fitting out.

Thought I would use as a toy in the winter months and if I get the quality right, use as a display model for a future business.
Looks good, I've still got a model I started making when I was serving my time, got carried away with the lay up, you'd struggle to puncture the bottom!
