Richard has built many fiberglass boats. both semi-production and custom. He has done all phases of fiberglass construction, from laminating hulls and decks, to making and then glassing in bulkheads, stringers, engine beds, rudder and shaft logs, etc. He has taken molds from classic older boats for semi production as well as lofting and then building new up to 36 ft.
