    there was a show on fuel tv about Laird getting a bunch of top shelf surfers on a sail boat full of his toys and cruising Indo. The only other surfer to ride the winged keel was Machado.
    Laird has a sailboat loaded with toys ? That sounds fun

    The leading edge certainly isn't sharp, every cross section is this shape:

    I'd like to see a shot looking directly at the serrated edge. My minds eye is seeing channels horizontally from the depressed edge. preferably from both ends.

    Here's a leading edge view of the ABS prototype. As you say there are horizontal channels, these diminish as they move back from the leading edge and are almost imperceptible in the trailing edge area.

    Macaroni you continue to flat-spin with your newfound adoration of the hatemeisters chucka-boo-boo & gnome.
    Are you sucking on the left one or the right one, sparky?

    Ahhhhhh, disregard that, macaroni. The only real question is whether you three clowns use cold water wax or tropical when stroking one another.

    I loves channels. Mike Doyle did a board for me with, what he calls, a hull bottom. kind of an inverted rounded V under the middle fin. It was a 7'2" but cut like a short board. It made a weird low pitched hum when turning. like blowing over as pop bottle. He's now making 9' and over boards, putting a foot long rounded groove in the rails near the tail.

    Roy expect to see a transaction with my name in the very near future.

    If I were to cut off my patu fin on my makaha and put a box in, would the 9 inch blef spitfire have the muscle for it? Thanks.

    Those look killer !!

    Cheers Charles, yes the fin will handle it, if you can handle cutting the wooden fin off lol.

    I'm doing some drawing today, apologies for the delay.
