5’8”x19.5”x2.5” thruster shaped out of recycled dock foam from a dock destroyed during hurricane Florence. Fins were repurposed from an old Merrick and the bottom design is from some funky couch fabric I found at Walmart. 1lb eps with 3x4oz top and 4oz+fabric bottom. The fabric soaked up a lot of resin so it’s heavier than I expected but comparable to a p/u board. I’m stoked with how it turned out. Recovering from a shoulder surgery but I should be able to take it out in a month or so.
One of the latest, a 9'4" x 23 1/4" x 3" noserider with ice-blue tint.
Very nice. Over here I got a set of pigments from Florian at Shaper Supply that had a couple of nice blues in them. I like the tail patch.
Thanks, Mc. The tail patch is actually a bit too long because I was not sure if the guy wanted side-bites or not when I glassed it. In doubt, I cut it as if side-bites were to be installed...
I had a hard time deciding to do this, but finally did. Being its hard to get foam up here, I just had to ....... :)
Older Stewart LB rewamp. Stripping was really easy. First time doing triple stringers was harder. One drop tint bottom.
Cut lap. Clear deck with patch. 7`3 x 20 x 2 1/2
That blue shadow in the middle is just that, a shadow. Bad photos.
cold water, warm heart
Hard to get foam up where? Those “Ice Blue” tints are getting popular. Nice redo.
thanks, im in norway. import taxes are laughable up here.
I bet you gotta have a hella sense of humor to laugh tho.
yeah, kidding aside and to give you an idea on cost. i figured after buying blanks from the UK a couple of times,
that after all is paid (shipping,customs taxes and other hidden fees) the cost of one blank is around $170!! no really funny is it haha
Hi mate. I think that looks awesome. What did you do on the hull? Like that triple stringer. I did a similar board to that but 7’0” and it was rolled to flat to V in the tail, goes like a rocket but always looking to improve the design
