    A couple recent boards on the racks. I wish I had more time!

    7'10 pintail cruiser (Light concave nose, triplane mid, slight vee tail. Raffling this off for charity when done.) and a 6'7 twin (outline pic looks weird and stubby, it's actually pretty drawn out. Wide point slightly forward, moderate single to deep double concave.) 6' fish is next. You can see the blank with outline in background.

    Gloss day! Ok gloss 15 minutes. C2E804A9-402D-48DE-BE51-6AE44F3E2EB9.png 578A7A27-1C25-44EA-83C4-FF180701322B.png B27A2C85-9E3D-4846-BECA-3DB89FA5480F.png Does anyone else like how a gloss looks when the wax rises up?

    Okay. I like this thread. I am going to glass this 6’10” piece of wasted foam to see how she goes. Once I surf it I will then be a true Jedi. Lol. For real though first try at this. I have zero expectations I am looking for advice on actually doing an ok glass job on it though

    Go with uv resin. Almost unlimited work time. Add a few drops of catalyst still. Guy on YouTube Andrew W has a ton of videos for help. Glassing has a quick scary to I’m getting it learning curve. From ok to wow is probably the longest. I’m a newbie backyarder still. Darn proud of it. New appreciation of the professional builders.

    Like those rails on the deck. My fingers hurt thinking about sanding that bottom though :)

    I am probably going to stick with the traditional poly resin. I do not have an indoor spot to glass. So a UV kick would be terrible for me lol
    Thanks for the input on the videos though. Good info for sure!
