    He meant that in the nicest possible way.

Came out absolutely perfect. Very fun little project. I may be making shortboard fins in the future. I can see how this could become addicting.

    By the way, any spots in the pictures are not in the fin. I doused the fin in water and took pictures quickly to capture the effect of what it will look like glossed on a board.





    Very nice fin and board! I'm concerned about the red puss sore on your hand in the third picture. Are you starting to have a reaction to fiberglass or the cleaning chemicals?

    Nice work! Love the fin too. I alway get too impatient to shape fins for my boards.

    I'd love to see that! I've laid up a few fin panels and find that any more than 5 layers at a time the resin just wont wet it out completely without too much work and tiny trapped air bubbles. 30 or so layers of cloth will get you enough thickness for a typical fin I recall.
