I've never done a scarf joint. Would the wood still flex at the joint? Would the glue stiffen it a bit changing the radius of the bend at that spot? I think I'll try it on my next board. I have lots of broken rails that could be mended together.
Finally it looks like a SUP, at least the bottom does. I finally made the decision to do the expando foam in lieu of a vent. I see my self forgetting about the vent and sinking the thing or popping the skins off. Will I still have to be careful leaving it in the sun? If so I suppose it must be covered while on the roof of my FJ Cruiser. It would be a shame to cover it. I think it will look awesome up there.
Fiberglass, epoxy resin, squeegee, mixing cups, leash cup, etc...all the goodies I need to finish my board are on the way. It's a race to see if I can get the deck attached before they arrive. It's a lofty goal but I think I can do it. I finished repairing cracks on the deck and started sanding the bottom side. I'll mess around with wetting/iron steaming and pre warping the deck tonight. Hopefully all goes well, if so it's glue time. I'm a little concerned about cracking.
I've decided to install the wood blocks for a fin box even though I am 90% sure I will be using a wood fin. I really like the way the wood fins look but the composite fins seem to make more sense if damage occurs. The provision will be there, so if I change my mind i'll be set. Next expando foam to fill the board. Getting closer.
