There is a beauty in keeping things simple. I like to build a cradle for my frame work. It keeps all the parts where their suppose to be and makes gluing the bottom to the frame much easier.
This board will be a 6'6" fish. The nose and tail will be developed after the stringers are glued in.
The board will be covered in paulownia and balsa. It should be light and strong. Perfect for the waves here.
