The most critical phase of construction is when the designer's creation is lifted from drawings and transformed into reality. During this first stage of construction, we build exact replicas of each future part which are called "plugs." We proudly build our plugs using the same time-tested "Strip Planking" techniques that have produced some of the most fair and true custom hulls built in the last two centuries. The plugs are polished to a fine porcelain finish that is flawless, as will be the molds that follow. All Parker molds are waxed and hand-polished to a high-gloss finish to ensure that the fiberglass parts made from them will reflect the same high quality every time.
