It is coming along well! looks like you did the strips 1 or 2 at a time like I did. I like the idea of foam fill from the edges. I will be interested to watch how that works out. keep the picture coming.
my pictures are not very clear I wonder if I shake or should I be using a better camera? your pictures are much better.
Did I see a little helper in some of your earlier pictures? You two are going to have some fun together paddling your board.
Hi clayton, Yes one of my little helpers my daughter hattie. I glued the strips on one at a time very time consuming! I am looking foward to getting the rest of the strips on the top of the board then filling it with foam, once the foam goes hard its pretty firm and very light and its also very sticky when wet, so it will hold every together inside the board nicely. I just brought 5x 750ml cans of foam for £15.00 Thats a bargain over here in the uk.

Well, keep in mind that foam boards are very soft until they are glassed, so whatever you use for rail material will also be covered in glass and become quite strong. On most cedar boards the dings don't actually ding, they just leave a shiner, a small area of glass that separates from the wood and looks silver. Keep the pics coming!
