When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Seldom do room redo's cause my heart to beat faster, but this one did (And I'm a designer). In order to make a mold I have been considering pulling a mold from the aft 30" of the hull, slitting and trimming and sliding that aft in order to form a fair extention mold.
One problem involves laying up against the existing hull upside-down; obviously I cannot invert the hull. Location: South Florida USA Maybe take some mica and strap it to the bottom with 30 or so inches sticking out aft?
Yes, of course the work would be done on the hard, but since it will have to be done in the peak sailing season (the only time it's warm, obviously) I would be trying to do this in just a few weeks total, while it is out for bottom painting. Location: Sacramento Have you thought about just building a fold-down step?
The proposed extension is minimal--2 feet--since this is enough to solve the boarding issue and dragging issue, and should minimize possible handling impacts. All this work could be done at home then take and bolt onto the boat each side if the hulls are identical in shape is just a mater of making one mould to make both of them and the top the same make a wooden painted mould !!
Location: Deale, MD The non-skid on PDQs is made by rolling thickened gel coat, not molded.

Portofino step with built in floatation improves stabilityWhen this boat owner needed better stability for his boat, the answer was simple - a portofino step with built in floatation. New swimstep with extras installedEveryone loves a challenge and this new swimstep, loaded with extras including a live bait tank (that needs no pumps) looks fantastic. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a professionally qualified boat builder is the pleasure we get from transforming the vessels we service. Items ship out the same day or next business day and arrive in 2-3 business days after that.

I picked myself up as best I could and as a project to help me have peace I created this room. I googled and noticed that I have on occasion had some of the symptoms such as, Tunnel vision, and Scotoma.
While I know I can lay-up on a ceiling (not much fun), I'm not so sure about a surface with mold release on it.
In fact that general method is often used on cats, but depending on the model there can be some very sharp curves, and mine is one of those. I also live ~ 1 hour from the boat so over 3 hours are wasted each trip, between driving and packing. Following Keys mica suggestion, I'm thinking of a metal mold, as there are some curves mica would have trouble with.

I would then take the work home where I could do the laminating and internal construction in the shop, returning to the field to gel coat and bond (glass inside and out).
Lay up enough for it to hold its shape and then take it home, or even do the whole job onsite? With a mold I can take much of the work home where I have a full shop, only bonding and matching gel coat on-site.
Shaping glass doesn't scare me much; not my first project, just the first one I've approached by pulling a mold directly from the hull.
