7' Funboard is done.

I finished it the other day.  I'm happy with the outcome.  The weight came in at 10.8 lbs.  The foam copy board was 10.4 lbs.  It's pretty close when you consider the new board has an extra fin.  I'm really stoked about this one.  Now I just need some waves.

Tac and rope the fins.

One of the things I like about the Suncure polyester laminating resin is when it's time to glass-on the fins.  It's easy to tac the fins in place and it sets up fast.  Roping them in is fast and easy also.

Hurricane Irma set everyone back.  I was lucky and didn't have much damage.  Others were not as lucky and some are still without power.

Funboard gets laminated.

My glassing schedule is simple and fast.  The fiberglass is 4 0z. S-2 grade.  The resin is polyester Sun Cure.  It's really easy for me to work with this product.  

Next up is glass on the fins.
