Glider progress

 Lots of tape and a long way from one end to the other on an 11 footer.
 Last rail band going on
 The little block plane got pretty warm cleaning up the rail bands.

Bagging the 11 foot glider

 Getting this set up on the bench. I have the blocks in place and screwed to the table to hold the rocker and the 12 foot bag layed out on top ready to take the board.
 I have decided to use some fibre glass fly screen mesh between the EPS and 5mm deck skin to see if it will give a little added support of my 6ft 3" 120 kg sitting on the board in this spot even thogh I will be glassing the finished board.

Bottom glued and 3mm skin in place. Time to start spreading the polyurethane glue.

You don't need alot of glue todo the job. You can see in the foreground how with the humidity it is starting to foam up.
All sealed up in the bag for 2 hours. Big job, big board.

5ft 10" x 21" x 2 1/2" @ 36 Litres Hydro V

 Single to double to V out through the tail

 The rounded hull shoulders on each side of the nose give way to a large concave but then blends into a chine that runs down each side. This captures the concaves and thins out the rail thickness as well before tapering into the V.
