A Hull is Born


Top-left: Taking the mold off of a boat hull is like breaking a very large hard boiled egg open. Here you see 3 men separating the transom portion of the mold.Top-right: This is a shot of the bow where the technicians are pulling the port side mold off the hull.Bottom-left: As you look at the port side without any mold attached you’ll see the grey gel-coat finish just as it came out of the mold. Before the gel-coat is applied to the interior of the mold the mold is waxed at least twice which enables the hull to have such a clean finish that needs little or no touchup.Bottom-right: Starboard/front, completed and detached from the mold.
