Sorry for your loss's Doug, best wishes on a fast recovery from it. These are the times where you want to look at the people that look at us business owners and say..."Must be nice".

What a bummer, glad nobody got hurt!!!
If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

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.
I will be the guinea pig and take the first boat out of the mold for a 50% discount LOL. I hope you can salvage the mold, I know theres a lot invested in it and not just $ either.
