you could carve your master out of polystyrene or a mix of poly and wood, fill a large box with fine sand make a negative shape with the poly. master and fill the resultant hollow with cement..It will probably need polishing when you take it out. I have seen a dinghy hull made this way.....except he did not use concrete (duh)

You can create a fiber glass form out of the plug or the form you are trying to replicate.
