Chop gun to make the mold off of the plug, I would think.

Glad to here no one was hurt. I understand how you feel, my Coyote which was the old Putt Putt race boat from the early eighties burned 2 years ago.

Amazingly enough Dale convinced me to look closely at the mold before I **** canned it. He was right only the outside skin was damage. It appears that the mold might still be salvageable. The fire was put out so quickly that the heat might not have penetrated below the SprayCore we use as a print barrier. We'll know more about it within the next week after we replace the outer layers & attach the steel bracing so we can pull it off the plug.
