    So, looks like it's a modified form of Cold Molding... interesting.

    Erock,
    If by cold molding you mean the resin was never cooked during the time curing than yes cold molded. Since I used west system epoxy all I did was add the epoxy to the pieces I was bonding together and let the epoxy cure.

    That's sort of what I'm talking about. More in terms of boat building though, it's where you laminate multiple thin layers on top of each other, essentially re-skinning the frame 3 or so times. The big difference in true Cold Molding is you remove the frame after the hull is layered--it's the lightest way to build a boat.

    In terms of what it looks like you are doing from the pic--the Cold Molded part is where your deck skin attaches to the rail overlap. In the layered laminate part, if that makes sense.

    It was assembled using a 11' roll of construction paper as a template.

    A full explanation can be seen on Roy Stewart' site. He has hundreds of build pics posted and we used the same torsion box construction method. Apologies, I'm only vaguely familiar with boat building and the terminology.

    Closeouts.. which I was making far better ( as is usual) than any other boards out there.

    The wave in the picture at the front of the video I made, the video transition obscured this fact. I can post the whole ride if you like.
