Glad to hear you are impressed with the kit. With regard to the templates I would make card copies of each part and see how accurate each part is to the plan and your hull. As I mentioned I have built several of Mobiles' excellent kits and have had many useful and informative discussions with Brian and Ann at many shows. This is a complete builders model if you purchase all the packs, but the templates are to help you make the parts which will require some fettleing to final dimension and shape. The fibreglass hull is as you say of high quality but will need to be checked for accuracy and adjusted to the correct dimensions with internal supports. You can then check your card template parts and make any small adjustments before cutting your wood.
Looking forward to see how you progress once the bench becomes free!
