Brad Gibson Molds for SC4 & SC5

NMSC is selling original IOM molds for Brad Gibson's SC4 
$180
The SC4 is 188mm beam max, with a 150mm stern. Includes very good hull mold and quite good deck mold. 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 
Brad

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
