I know this topic has popped up before but I'm gonna ask it again.... Does anyone know of an easy way for me to make a custom baitwell that is oval? Is there a way to bend foam or even better, to make a mould for me to fiberglass around? Thanks. Dimensions will roughly be 38long x 24wide x 18tall

Get yourself a sheet of 1/16" plywood, put black garbage bags over it and leave it in the sun for a while, take the hot plywood out and shape it into the pattern that you want. Let cool and use that as your form.

Easy peasy

I layed wax paper over a garbage can and layer up solid panels for each side then flat sections for the middles, glassed everything together. As a wise man once said........easy peasy
