Transom extension--pulling molds from the side of the hull

I'm think of adding some short extensions to my hulls to help some disabled access and boarding issues. Just enough to give a small platform, about 18 inches:

Though I've read numerous stories of folks building extensions, I've never read of anyone using the hull itself to generate a form with matching compound curves. More often they use some flexible material and battens and settle for a straight run, which is fine I suppose; I may go that way. I've know folks to pull molds from the hull to repair damage (pull a mold from the other side of a cat); they just waxed it well and laid up a few layers of glass.

Any practical advise? I'm only talking about 2 x 4 ft^2 areas. I suppose I could use a release film, but I wonder if the surface would be as good.

CharlieCobra once posted fotos of a sugarscoop he added to a boat. Muck about in his threads and see if you can find those fotos. He did a really nice job, as you might suspect.
