So is that what you call “Trim-Craft”?

Not sure if this is what you're trying to prove, but it doesn't look like the last photo and the first photo are the same board- the first board has a basswood stringer (3/16-1/4"?) and the one on the rack has a (1/8"?) darkwood stringer, along with a sidecut. I know Michael Arenal shapes for Hobie, which CNCs at least some of their boards so that may be it.

A lot of shapers come through town and shapne in my room, Trimcrfaft, nor I, nor anyone in that photo use CNC machines whatsoever - I'll put that on my family, its not what any of us do, and I have wasted too much time and sweat for anyone to think otherwise.  we are hand shaping feinds and came together because there is no surfboard company backing that - we had to create it ourselves.
anyways, the board in the background is one of Rich Pavels that he was shaping on my bay for a friend.  not a Trimcraft.  There are no trimcraft files for any of our models anywhere ever.  not one.  put that on my grave <3
appreciate the hawk eyes though - kinda insane how many of those you can find on instagram in the background of 'hand shapers' bays - stoked you guys are keeping an eye out and apologies it took so long for me to get here and set the question straight, been a while since ive been on sways...so long that my old account is gone?!  wowza!

Thanks for chiming in Ryan.  I sell Blanks-Resin-Cloth up here in Oregon and know a couple of young shapers up here who have spent time down there with you trying to advance their chops.  Sold a couple of Skils to one of them etc.  it's encouraging to see young people so dedicated th hand shaping.  If you are ever up this way, come by and spend a little time in my bay.  I'm in PC. aka Pacific City   Lowel/ Oregon Shapers/Little Hawaii/ Nalu Nation
