Just wanted to let you know that I will be sending your package out by the end of the week. I'm rounding up some interesting stuff to send out your way (maybe some muddy waters with the stones circa 70 something). I know you don't expect it, but its just my way of saying thanks. I am definately doing a traditional fish on my next board. I chickened out last time when the blank I had turned out different than what I had expected. Anyway it will be 6' bottom length with the center point up two inches at 34". Nose will be 17", width 21", and tail 16 5/8". It will have a 6" deep swallow tail. I am thinking about placing the fins 4" up from the tips of the swallow and all the way out to the rail. With the front of the fins brought in toward the stringer 1/8" (instead of the typical 1/4", or should it be parallel to the stringer?). The cant will be no more than 4 degress (maybe just perpendicular to the bottom?). I am thinking a slight rolled vee for the bottom shape. I am looking for that skatey feel with the short turning radius and lots of S turns, but not to the point where when everytime I shift my weight forward the tail releases. Is the fin placement overkill, in your opinion? Is the flat bottom or the rolled vee the only two real options for a traditional type fish? Any info is as always greatly appreciated. Oh yeah the rocker will be pretty flat, maybe 3 1/2" nose and 1" in the tail, and the board will be 2 3/4 thick EPS (should float me super good), triple 6 glass. I want this board for a longboard alternative and will be ridden in FL mush. Thanks again.
