From member Les Wamack October 2023:
Ben made a mold and cast two new pairs of railing hinges for a 47 Commander with wood rails. Since I have paid for the molds ($145.00), if you need these parts, get in touch with Ben and he will use my mold and save you the cost of new molds. Ben charged me $145.00 for the molds and $85.00/pr for the castings. Evidently this is not sand casting.
