As the 32 hull has a slight tumblehome I'm thinking that it would not come out of a one part mould.

So is the hull moulded in two parts and then bonded together or is the mould split in order to remove the finished hull?
 
I think I have seen a photo of a new hull in the mould - but can't think where it was.
 
 
 
......There is no practical or sensible reason for me wanting to know this!

It's a 2 part mould. If you look on JR Site they show Aphrodite's Hull being released from the mould.

Short video here, towards the end you can see how the yard have to split the mould at the aft end to release the hull.
