A new Swaylock's contributer here, but a longtime reader of the various threads.
I am hoping someone can tell me a little bit about this board. Year, model, shaper, etc. It is a 9'6".
I think it may be based on "The Hustler" template, but am uncertain. There are no identifiers like you would find on the Master or 50/50 models.
Perhaps (hopefully) Mr. Thrailkill, or any other experts, can weigh in?
Based on Mr. Thrailkill's comments to other posters about the dot markings before and after the board number, I suspect this board was shaped by Fred Smole? The number on the stringer at the tail is 7002.
Also, is that a section of volan cloth on the deck?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, all.
