    Steve I definitely wanna chat about rail shaping. That's my only problem with the parallel profile method, shaping end grain is a timely process so any ideas on making that aspect better is a plus. Roy seems to obviously have it down but his boards take hundreds of hours ! Can you post some pics of your rails on the 10-7 u made ? Thanks dude !

    I'll dig through the picture files and post some. I think I just have before and after shaping pics. Give me a call and I can talk you through in ten minutes what it would take me an hour to write.

    Actually it's my standard 4 layer parallel profile method, not a variant.

    A nice looking concave Steve. The weight isn't a problem in itself provided that it doesn't reduce the buoyancy too much. With paulownia I can get a 12 foot board at 24 pounds if I want to go light.

    How thick is your planking?

    Hey Roy,

    Is there an ideal weight to length ratio you go for? I didn't put to much thought into controlling the weight during my build.
