The Molding Process

To create the Bluefin 14, we have six molds, one for each of the sections. Those molds get filled with our special resin, closed tight and spun slowly in an oven. They are then removed and cooled, then trimmed and outfitted with clamps, gaskets and decking.

Here, section 3 is being molded in Sunshine yellow.
