Interesting bit of history that you were a part of. Was the company bought out by another company? Did they go out of business due to lack of sales? How did you build the plugs/molds? Did you get a boat out of the deal for making the plugs? Any photos from those days? I'm sure a lot of guys on here would be interested in your background and experience in the Midland Co.
The Midland 19' and Midland 22' plugs were strip planked out of 3/4" x 1 1/2" cedar. I was able to save the plug from the 22' which I glassed inside with two layers of mat and one layer woven roven. The outside of the plug already had one layer of cloth to which I added two layers of mat. After sanding and fairing I applied Allgrip paint.
I used her for about three years then sold her to a man on Lake Champlain NH who used her for eeling up there.
The Midland 20.6' plug was made out cedar frames with a plywood skin. This plug being hard chime proved difficult to release from the mold, wasn't able to save it.
The first boat out of the mold I gave to my younger brother who at the time had Midland 19'. He loved it so much, I ended up building one for myself.
Built two more, always changing something, the last one I still have.
I've got some pics just don't know how to put them on this site.
