    Great work! I love it when people ride waves in an unconventional way. Handplanes are sick in overhead victory-at-sea days too!

    I never saw this thread before but there's some nice work here guys. Keep the posts coming.

    I've been trying out some designs with keels and fins. The red one is epoxied pine with glass-on fins and an old leash railguard as the strap. The blue horseshoe is still getting prepped for some pin lines and a 2nd color. I'll probably add leash plugs to anchor the strap...
    Anyone here ever make a foam and wood one?

    Really digging those, I've been thinking about making a couple and painting them up a bit. I see we are on the same tip with the keels.

    Forgot to add: My most recent one is made from African Mahogany, edge grain Tiger Maple, Cocobolo and Cypress. I finished it with three coats of Tung Oil.


    I haven't thought about doing a wood/foam one yet... seem's the extreme differences in densities would create a shaping challenge at the least.... Hell, I've still got to glass the foam ones I shaped... they're just languishing on a rack right now.

    Yeah, maybe, but I only see advantages in having a hybrid instead of an all-foam or all-wood one. Best laid plans...
