Hi again.
Two questions come to mind:
_did the rocker stay the same as the initial rib rocker ?. I would imagine that the concave strip planking would have straightened the whole lot out a bit.
_the strip planking colors are intentional like this ?
Take your time about my questions, your priority is working on that baby.
Regards
Nico

the way i set it up on the building table to apply bottom strips i lost none of the rocker.

as it sits right now

5.7 cm of rocker either end.
17mm of concave
150 cm long
40 cm wide.
Be a little slow with build today need to figure out reinforcement for fins,straps,handle.


Cheers

Minor update ...been busy with other stuff.

So i had thought about my reinforcements inside the board for support for fins,straps,and handle.

I came up with the idea of using 1" cut cedar plugs placed where bolts would go and adding support between the skins of the board. Will drill into these later and place inserts and epoxy.

That step done and half the top planking applied i started to fill the cavity with spray foam.
will give the board more buoyancy and make the board more solid overall. This stuff really expands,if you do not have a free area for the excess to go it will blow your board apart. This is why i started to fill it at this stage lots of room for it to expand.

only 8 more strips to go and board will be ready for shaping and glass work.

Oh and an answer for Nico sorry i missed it. The strips i just apply random i don't try and color match strips i like the flow of natural wood look rather than trying to color match.

Cheers

Hey Wavebreaker

How is your board progressing, I'm really looking forward to some shots of how the rail is created and finished.

Sincerely

Pete
