Your Facebook post says not available.

That is a big beast lol!  
It looks to be a good quality moulding. I'm afraid I can't help with instructions - I have never heard of that model - is it American?

If you have specific questions we'll try to answer them for you. It looks as though you are cutting templates for something. What are you planning to do.

Do you have a specific question about glassing the propshafts? Personally I use a product available in the UK called P40. Its a resin with chopped glass in it. Easier to use than glass mat.
We may not be familiar with Mr Darby, but we do have quite a bit of experience making all kinds of model boats from wood, plastic or fibre glass.

germaina wheft ag shipyard report...after what seemed like a life time of filling and sanding got the prop shaft covers on and glassed in..trying a few moter mount mock ups not happy with any of them..ideally i would like to turn the motor cans at 45 degrees and out-aboard next to the hull.. this will keep them above any flooding and give me blue water ability(ie i can take rough water and some internal flooding and keep the electronics safe)to sail...would like a thinner support or different still playing with this and other mock up's as i think of them for now....think i like the 2nd design better still kicking around a 3rd this one is removable and after base is glassed in pull the pins and slide forward will have a butt plate to stop rear movementmr darby build P1050113
