Simple math

After sanding the bottom lap, tail and nose.  My next step is layout for the fins.  For my project board the set-up is simple.  It's copying the board that I made my plans from.

My 6' 6" Torq is a really fun board.  The Punt fins make it turn with ease and hold when they have to.  

Once I determine my center-line the set-up is simple math.

Laminated 6'7" Fish

A couple days ago the bottom got laminated.  For this board I used 4 oz. S-2 glass with Suncure Polyester resin.  This afternoon, I sanded the lap and glassed the top.

Next, I have to prep the fins.  I just got a quad set from my fin guy Lance.  He makes them nicer than I would.

Ready for glass.

The boards is ready to laminate.  It's light and fragile.  I'm happy with the outcome.

Humm babe

With the right tools shaping the rails are easy.  I start by doing a shoulder cut and work it from there.

On the bottom I don't soften the rail for the last 30".  The next thing I need to do is install the leash plug.
