    The boat they used for the mold was a working boat that was in for a overhaul.

    So that is the plug? Wouldn't you remove the mold when it was upside down?

    They used a working lobster boat as a plug for the mold.The original molds burned years ago, so someone had a 40 footer that was due for a cosmetic overhaul, and they took a mold of from it. There are some pictures on Taylor's facebook page
