I know that the topic of a Mini Simmons has been discussed many times and I've spent a lot of time reading through many of the discussions. I've also used the search fuction judiciously but haven't been able to find the info/guidance I'm looking for. I'm just starting my first MS and have the outline as well as the rocker that I want finished on the bottom. I will have the thickness at 2-7/8" but I am unsure how to foil that thickness down at the ends. Particularly at the tail.
What kind of thickness do people tend to have in the back? Also, What kind of rails do these boards typically have? I understand that they have a hull-ish type of bottom on the front 1/3 of the board and a flat midsection. I'll put a little concave running out the back between the keels. I've never put my hands on a Mini Simmons and am only doing this based on what I have been able to look up on the web and read. I just can't find any details on how the rails are done as well as how the thickness is distributed. Are any of you kind experts out there able to help me out a bit?
This board will be 5-11 x 19 x 22.5 x 18..5T x 2-7/8. 13.5" at the tailblock. I'm 6', 200#'s average surfer, good paddler.
Thanks all in advance for your help!!
