Hi all.

Just thinking about the number of hull moulding tools that go on to have another life. I was wondering how many of the 'well known' moulding tools have gone onto make boats in a newer lease of life?

The ones I know about are as follows:

- Elysian 27 became (after many other forms!) ended up as the Bounty 27AC and still exists
- FB Wilds hull mouldings went onto become the basis of most of the past and current Alpha craft mouldings
- Moonraker mould tools went onto to become all sorts of boats and ultimately ended up back 'home' at Bells yard (and is now for sale!)

Do any forum members know of any more of the popular moulds that have either changed hands or slightly redesigned to come back to life?

In particular, I was wondering if the Sheerline 1070 has anything to do with the original Bounty 34 hull tool and also if the Sheerline 740 (24) was anything else before it became this craft?

Best wishes,
