Re: [ksurf] Pics of my Plwood 147 TT
I also built a ply board and I´m LOVING it! It goes upwind like no other
board I have used.
One mistake I made was to go light on the marine varnish...if you haven´t
done so, put as many layers as you can, specially on the tiny holes in the
plywwod that are exposed by sanding. My board took A LOT of water, and the
water don´t comes out! it´s very heavy now, and still rides great...
