Batten Mould

Boats Over a Batten Mould – General

Cold Moulded Plywood and GRP Foam Sandwich have many features in common. They both require the construction of an expendable jig/mould, with frames and longitudinal battens. Some permanent frames/transverse bulkheads may be used, in additional to permanent stem/keel etc.

These have generally been applied to moored boats, where a round bilge form is required.  It is rarely effective for trailable boats, except where a round bilge form, or light construction  is sought.
