Wooden 6ft 2" single fin for London based cinematographer , Haris Zambarloukos

 6ft 2" x 21" x 2 3/8" @ 35lt. Cut from a US Blanks 2lb EPS blank with 1/8" Paulownia stringer

 Haris liked the outline of this "Stubby" shape but wanted a little more going on, on the bottom, so we added a modified Hydro V bottom to it. Single concave to double to V out the tail and chines down each side to mix it up. It should be a little flyer in the breaks of Cornwall.
 The blank is cut 9mm thinner as it will have a 5mm deck and 4mm bottom skin of Paulownia added.
It will be finished, unglassed in Lanolin.
 Complete outline prior to me scribing the rails and cutting them off to add the wood to the blank.
Rails off and ready to add first rail bands
 5mm rail bands all round
All trimmed up ready to add skins
 5mm deack skin and 4mm bottom skin in the bag for 2 hours
Solid as a rock, ready to take off any over hanging skins all round and then to add the actual 5mm rail bands.
