This shows the building of a double skinned Fibreglass Bass Boat built from Plug, Mould to End Product stage, in my back yard and launched in the Bolgoda Lake which borders of my land. It is a flat bottomed very stable boat, you could stand at any point of the boat and cast with the least roll. It is the most successful boat in the lake landing huge Barramundi up to 35 pounds by our anglers. It can accommodate Engines ranging from 40HP to small electric Outboard Motors. A collapsible canopy, 4 to 6 Fishing Rod holders, Bow engine, 3 Swelled seats and Steering arrangement attached to the integral console. It has a live bait well, Fish hold, Battery hold in amidships and plenty of storage space in the bow.

Awesome….I’ve built a few things in fibreglass for marine applications….the molds are the trickiest….did you gelcoat to pop the blank? I assume you rolled it up by hand…..I know most of the manufactures use chopper guns now a days…roving instead of sheets….not as stong as a good hand layup.

I’ve seen some of those fish on the Hooked show on Nat Geographic…Man that is one big fish….great to have a good boat for sure.

Very nice. I would like to see more pictures of the process. I would also like to see the final boat all dressed up for fishing.

That is fantastic! How long does it take you to build a boat from start to finish?
