Brad Gibson Molds for SC4 & SC5

NMSC is selling original IOM molds for Brad Gibson's SC4 and his prototype Disco named the SC5 (NOTE: as Brad states below, NOT the final Disco). 
$300 for both or negotiable to separate.
The SC4 is 188mm beam max, with a 150mm stern. The SC5 is 220mm beam max, and 185 stern. Both include very good hull molds and quite good deck molds. Below is a copy of an email from BG giving permission for them to be sold as well as additional info. 
Checked and license fee only for commercial use, so you or Club members could build a group of hulls for their own use. Brad Gibson designed many boats in Australia and England, including the amazingBritbop IOM. He is also a multi World Champion sailing IOMs.
 Hi Colin, 
I have no objection to the moulds being sold as both the SC4 and the SC5 (it is not the Disco mould) to anyone agreeing a small fee for licence with us should they be for commercial use. Some time ago I noticed the deck mould for the SC5 which was also used on the Disco was modified in the rear of the cockpit which would hold water in the deck and not drain properly. In reality while both good designs in their day, the more balanced hull shapes now are better all-round boats and a little easier to sail across the range. 
Happy to discuss further with any questions you may have 
Cheers

Details from BGs old website: 
1999 IOM - SC4 
This was BG's first narrow design, directed more towards flatter water, pond conditions. Up wind in all rigs the design proved competitive, but suffered downwind with a lack of freeboard in the bow. 
Boats Made: 29 
Results: 6th Australian National Championship 2000, 2nd NSW and VIC Championships 2000 

2002 IOM - Disco (NOTE: we are selling the SC5 that was a prototype Disco)
Designed as an all-round boat, on lessons learned on our previous designs.  Hull was at moderate beam with clean lines and has proven to this day to be competitive in any fleet throughout the world when sailed well.  In 3 International Championships from 2003 to 2005, a Disco was placed within the top 6 at each event and was the most sailed design at the 2005 Worlds.
Boats Made: 50
Results: 1st & 3rd Australian Championship 2003, 3rd & 4th World Championship 2003, 6th European Championship 2004, 6th World Championship 2005.
