Slow progress is being made.
Blank was left rough sanded with 60 grit sandpaper, and then forcefully sealed with resin using a squeegee.
I have two layers of 4oz on each side so far, with each layer being done separately. I plan on doing another layer on both sides, so it should be bullet proof.
Graffiti style supposed anti-shark pattern on the bottom breaks up the expanse of all that width, and gives me a centreline to set the fins. Stylised pi symbol at the nose appeals to the mathematics nerd in me, and covers the area I butchered with the hand saw when I was cutting in the nose rocker.
Your logo gotta laugh out of me. Haha
I like it Rohan -- outside the mainstream.
Hope you'll tell us how it rides.

Hot coat done.
These images show the planshape and rocker/deck line more accurately than previous posts.
I've ended up with approximately 1" of tail rocker, and 1 1/2" of nose rocker - the equivalent of taking my 7' McCoy and chopping 2" off the tail and 1 1/2' off the nose.
Pretty stoked and excited to see this keep evolving, Sooo love the few build threads creeping back in at the moment.
Swaylocks for life hahhah

I plan to implement my standard finbox arrangement, which will allow me to set it up as a single fin, thruster, widowmaker or McKee style quad.
Almost done. Just the fine sanding to go.
Of course it wouldn't really be one of my own without a decent screw up along the way.
I routed the front side fin holes to suit fin plugs that were no longer available. I had to cut some wooden plugs with a hole saw, set the smaller fin plugs into them, and then set these into the board. It wasn't a complete disaster as disasters go.
Looks good Rohan. I do the same thing with HD foam for plugs and boxes going into EPS.
Be safe, have fun. -J
^^^ +1 Looks good.
In 1970 I had R. Cunningham shape me. 5'8 Twin. The concept was that it would go in the back seat of a VW Bug when hitchhiking. I was concerned that I might have to pass up a ride with one of those North SD county blondes in a Karmin Ghia or an MGB-GT Lowel
