wood core 8mm I hope enough because finally with fiber and epoxy layer is ~9.5mm, I make thin and flexy board special for freestyleeree wrote: is 8 mm of wood buoyant enough? does she stay afloat?

please explain how you did the rails and inserts and also was the layup one layer 600gr/m^2 each side?
I think it's milky in appearance because it was a bit dry on layup, this might help you to get a clear finish next time http://www.laughingloon.com/epoxy.html it still looks really nice though!
I order very clear glass from Interglas UD 320g and woven 280g, it's not the same characteristic like triaxial but we will see, the guy told is very clear glass.. maybe there's possible put woven glass to 45 like biaxial?kitehok wrote:I have had the same problem with tri-axial glass, it's tough to get the clear finish. I find 4oz S-glass or E-glass works better.
