    Bottom first, cut laps. I did a full wrap lam on deck but wet the laps with clear before I did the swirl. Probably wouldn’t have mattered though bc the dark color. I generally don’t like doing deck inlays bc it seems like the board is weaker with less glass on the rail.

    Anyone running a 9" fin?

    Not all 9” fins are the same. I run a 9” California classic in my 9’6”. It’s a perfect amount of fin. The 9” Dobson or 4a are too small.
