cold molded repairs

I'm wondering if one would have trouble getting repairs to a cold molded hull. Techniques presumable would be different from fiberglass. Are there people out there who know how to do the work?

Belliegirl, I was timed out at the station and had to rush my thought, so let me expand a bit before wishing you well.

I started a thread similar to this a while ago based on nothing but my impression that as a newcomer I hardly ever see anyone younger than myself, 50ish, in the dock. At that time Jeff H. I thought...

Thanks for the reply Jack. When I think of five people on a 27 foot I have to conclude there is something either really beautiful or really sick going on in that family. But to the point: I have...
