 The Argus 35 Tooling Development
 Designed in New Zealand and manufactered in Queensland, the first stage of construction requires the building of temporary plugs that are identical in shape to the finished production boat. A female mold is taken that is then used for the production of the actual vessel parts. The following sequence shows the progression from frames to finished moulds.
   Frames CNC cut and ready for assembly..
   Frames assembled on a strong back.
   Frames planked with MDF
   Main hull ready for fairing.
   Assembled hull plug.
   Faired and ready for mould making.
