Re: Some Advice Pre Purchase

Cold molding is labour intensive and a very expensive process. Some very high end custom boats are built this way and in my opinion are superior to regular FRP hulls (cored or not). It all comes down to build quality. Do your research on the builder and make sure your surveyor is intimately familiar with this construction method.

You could start your research here ... Spencer or Rybovitch
