Step 1: Lamination
Ribs cut out to shape on Bandsaw then holes drilled to lighten and provide a place to clamp.
I used Hemlock for my strips. They are about 1 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick
Glues each piece using a water proof glue
Step 2: Sanding
After strips are in place sanded top and bottom
I hand planed the rails to shape them and then sanded
After sanding I made the front part and the back which I glues and then shaped
Step 3: Finish Touches
I used plasti dip around the rails to straighten them
I also drilled to holes in the tail to let air out when not in use. (Very Important)
I bought a fin box online and installed it
I made my own handle box and placed it in using supports and epoxy
Last step is to fiber glass the whole board
