Re: A return to building

Thanks for this, lot's of good info and pictures.

It's cool to see what someone with skills is able to achieve without all the tools available.

Re: Help with simple DIY board build

Good chance plywood won't float the slingshot foil. I would check that first.

Re: How thick can I lay carbon fiber?

I am no expert but I think if you add some fibers at 45/45 it will help with twist. Hopefully someone with more experience will notice this and give more specific suggestions.

Re: How thick can I lay carbon fiber?

Pathetic first attempts is exactly the place to start. That's how I got to where I am now, the pathetic 500th attempt.

I put 3x 200g uni D cf, 150mm wide on both sides of my latest build and that was bombproof.
Kinda sacrilege to use carbon on a boogie board.....
By "both sides" you mean top and bottom? Under the twill?

Re: T-Tails on 50 and 70 cm masts

Thanks for posting your results. :thumb:

Do you think the vertical surface area is making all of the difference, or does raising the stab out of the front wing turbulence have something to do with it?
