    Hey Guys,
    The mold for the Fowl River 16 is sitting in my back yard unused. If anyone wants to build one I will rent or sell the mold. The mold is set up for vacuum bagging. Its about 3/8" thick so its not "commercial" grade, but it definately has 5-10 more hulls left in her.

    You can come test drive mine. The boat is a superior design in the marsh, but the Florida folks will probably hate it.

    The tunnel insert is removable.

    The whole build is posted below, so you could pretty easily follow it step by step.

    To build a hull the way I did it will cost about $5k in materials. If you built it with a chopper gun, put wood stringers, decks and a transom you could do it for half that. Maybe less.

    I borrowed the deck mold, so you would have to make your own decks, but that would not be very hard.

    $2000 for the mold.
    $500 to rent it.

    I am open to any and all interest so PM me.

    I saw his skiff last evening on the causeway about R&R's seafood. Good looking skiff.

    I was telling a bud about this mold the other day. Do you have any idea what the purchaser is going to do with it?

    It was sold to a builder in the Apilachicola area.

    He said he was going to build a tunnel and non tunnel hull, keep the one he liked and sell the other. I can put you in touch if you like?

    Haha Well, to anyone else out there that may want a mold. For $3,250 I'll flip my hull over, wax it up and make a copy for you.
