How we made this MASSIVE MOLD! - Episode 96
In this episode we show you how we made this huge mold on from a donor Fountain Pajot Helia 44, to fix a hurricane damaged sister ship. She was baldy damaged during hurricane dorian but was salvaged and we drove her to Florida to do the repairs..

    Awesome job! Fiberglass and resin is hard work!

    Your in Florida and the scammers are a dime a dozen. I ran my Mac Tools business for 20yrs so I know also I had several boat yards like St Augustine Marine where they are a magnet for would be workers. And the boat yards are one of the worst places for these slime balls. The boat yards will hire any living breathing body to do this work

  • wayneuk

    i use filler fibers on all tight corners to eliminate that issue

    These types of videos are what attracted me to your channel. Awesome job!!

    What number video shows you actually using the mold to rebuild the hull? Has it even been made yet?

  • aserta

    Having a boat to lift a mold off of is such a boat load of worries gone for you. Imagine having to scratch build that because there's no options. :)

  • Dale Sather

    I w old have put in air fittings all over your mold and let it set up with the fittings that way when complete you could have just put the air to it to make it a breeze to separate from doner and allowing you yo have much bigger mold sections especially around complicated sections.

    Thank you for the video.

  • pedopars

    Glad you found this contractor, he seems to actually like and know what he's doing. Explains it perfectly and eloquently

    • aserta

      He does know. That trick with tearing the edge alone, shows he knows what he's talking about. I've seen a lot of molds where that wasn't done and the end result was a seam that had to be corrected on the part.

    Use cotton flocks for tight radiuses and a bit of chopped glass, flocks are structural and they'll give a cleaners better edge finish with a less chance of air pockets

    How did you find a boat to make the mold from. Hay can I fiberglass on your boat promise I won't hurt it?

  • Terry

    Great work crew love the content very interesting by all peace to all.

    So one thing you mentioned quite a bit after it was done, the mold wax. The thing I find interesting is it looked like you put construction orange Gell coat right on top of the wax ?

  • Bob Bull
    Bob Bull

    No matter how much you put into a boat, one thing that is a fact of boating. A boat is nothing more than a hole in the water that you pour your money into. The bigger the boat, the bigger that hole is, hence the more money you spend on it.

    Omg Colin so true, that's the states for you. I've had no less then 100 different skilled guys come for home repairs jobs over the last 5 years in Charlotte, NC and their professionalism is a joke. Then the expensive ones act like they're doing you a favor. Stay strong, Viva Parlay.

    Florida is totally known for poor contractors. You need to go further north. Florida contractors don’t pay a living wage so you end up with poor workmanship or they don’t even show.

    I think you said you hadn’t done glass work before, I do composite repairs on planes so I’m familiar with what your doing and it looks very good especially for working outside

    Ha ha welcome to the world of dealing with bloody tradesman. Everyone's nightmare like they must teach them to be criminally inconsiderate. I hate dealing with them from any trade. Cant belive no gloves or masks. Fibreglass, it sais it all in the name. May as well be asbestos. I can smell the epoxy. Beautiful work .

    Yall dont worry about fiberglass shards I always get scared working with fiberglass ever since I did a roof

    Looks like you got Jack Johnson to help you pop that mold

    How did you guys find Orion / someone that would allow you to take a mould off of their boat? Obviously, a bit of a risk that they were willing to take on their end..

    Hi guys, i learn so much about glassing and repairs in general but you just changed my life with this episode Colin. The several pairs of gloves at a time for a quick change when get sticky is amazing😁😁. I'm like a child with resin and get it everwhere with more strands on my hands than the boat!🤣. If you fancy a laugh here is a link to my 1973 old classic British catamaran restoration.😁🤙🤙

    Florida is also one of the biggest flim flam havens in the world. There are people just looking for non-locals to screw over. There are plenty of good contractors but you need to get references.

    Your video content is slipping...I love you guys but you need to step it up...Yes I missed the music..

  • warp21drive

    Nice mold but why not use coring to add ridigity to this tempoary mold, much quicker to build up the required stiffness than using woven roving. ?

    youve been such an inspiration.. just got my yacht yesterday...another kiwi on the water Thanks colin and crew...maybe see you out there

  • David Bolduc

    I was surprised that you didn't stiffen the mold more with some wood framing, but then I thought maybe you left it more flexible so that it would mate easier to the stern of the hull you are repairing. Excellent video btw explaining all the steps clearly.

  • Rich Cook

    Thanks Colin. Great episode. This one linked me to you channel and i've been binging since. Can you please explain the "donor" boat a bit more. How did you happen to come across another boat of the same type in the same marina and convince someone to let you take a mold from their boat? Also after you make a new section for your boat how will you slice it onto your boat so that it is strong enough? Thanks. Got me hooked

    Thoroughly enjoyed the video, thank you as always! Could you give us some more info on the 'donor' boat? I was taught one should ideally add some wood stringers into the mould for strength and rigidity when laying it up against the damaged hull - but perhaps the stairs and back end will provide that support (as will the existing hull shape I presume). Would love longer video's - these are epic!

    Finished binge watching all episodes a week ago, so was pleased to see #96. I like your approach to safety on the water, but would like to see you and team use safety glasses when handling MEKP. I did a FRP hobby course in Oz many years ago & this was drilled into us. Take care ...

    Im watching these religiously now. Heaps of new tricks to learn. I did what you are doing 26 years ago when a big boat was 60 feet. Great that another Kiwi is out there, Smashing it. In somě ways would love to get on a pláně and do it all again. Keep doing what your doing. Looking forward to the next episodě.
