LOL. Some years back, Mike Daniel failed to get his point across to drew and I about the horrible impact resistance that CF has when I tired of the wood rail build up even with cork when CF tape buried under S cloth was so easy. Bulk purchase of some hundred yards of CF rail tape at discount and I use it with the 1 lb EPS and balsa vacuum bag with a single layer of 4oz S and it is so shockingly strong.

9-2 classic pig, reverse blank and some serious lumber t-band stringers. Glad I sharpened my handplane to a razor edge. Working railbands around this wood isn’t messing around.
I also picked up a pail of dion 6631-20 isophthalic resin. See how it goes but I plan to start glassing all my boards with it.
Parsurf, how is that Hitachi holding up with all the wood? Do you need to let it cool periodically?
all the best
Yeah I would like to see how the ISO glass job turns out. Been waiting and debating about Glassing my finished 10’2” three stringer Clark. . Yes stringers at the rail are tricky but with a sharp plane and a couple of little secrets they can come out beautiful. Nice job.. Keep everything sharp. You use that Green Machine exclusively or also a Skil?? Assuming that is a US Blank. That’s good for about $300 ? Lowel
Haven’t found a skil for cheapish yet so I’m working this hitachi like crazy. This is going to be board 20 and the hitachi has done 10 of them. Mostly lb’s in the over 9-6 range in green or classic foam with some sort of extra wood.
The blank would be over three in this configuration but it was a the wrong rocker for the initial customer. I picked it up for less and had enough room to do what I wanted.
working up this fin for it. Doing a 1/4 roving bead around it. Photo is just the seal coat but it is some of the most amazing redwood Burl I have seen. Glad I have enough for a couple more!
If it’s of interest to anyone. It’s finished haha.
Rode it over the weekend and the glide is quite nice...

Outstanding. Beautiful. Words fail me.
That´s one of the most impressive boards I´ve seen. Leaving me speechless....
Wow. Beauty. Shamew to put wax on that one. When isa someone going to develop a claer wax alternative?
