    How does Schiada get non-skid decks to release from the mold?

    So, I follow pretty much every build thread from big E, Nordic, DCB and anyone else that posts shots of the gel and lamination processes. The magic always starts with a thorough cleaning of the mold and then a bunch of coats of mold release wax so the boat's gel coat doesn't become one with the...

    Arko contact info?

    How does one contact Bill Sturgis at Arko? He doesn't seems to have much of a web presence. I need to get some seats started for a 21 RC. Thanks in advance.
