The Shape Shack / Re: EPS Breather layer....Pono jrandy?
« on: January 12, 2019, 02:25:05 PM »
Thanks guys!

 I love the Forum for this kind of learning

Think I'll do at test rail wrap without making a poxy mess, but yeah it might keep bag wrinkles down and be smooth it it works

Add a poorly heated shack, a New England winter and a heat gun....:)   

The Shape Shack / EPS Breather layer....Pono jrandy?
« on: January 12, 2019, 09:34:57 AM »
Pono , jrandy or other....

Were you saying that EPS sheets can work well as a breather layer?     I have plenty of 5/16 sheets lying around.   Was using quilting material, butthe eps is tempting as easier to work with maybe

If so, can it wrap rails and angles?.... Obviously when it's dry it just crumbles when flexed, but i guess it can make some bends when pulled down

cowboy ...anytime it can all kick off at once is better...unibody construction  I'm sure builds vary, but next layer on tacky  is good..

BTW, the 3M  77 on skin to divinycell was a fail for me, as i was trying to follow a rocker, and using 1/2 divinycell....had it down tight, but then the sander vibration started lifing it off, and so i went to poxy
It' a reverse or double sandwich, and the hard skin was first...vibrated too much

Clearly it's winter around here!

So on a far more comedic level of board drying....Did anyone ever see the DingKing board spinner on Maui?

The concept was to centrifuge water to a tip...(presumably the crash site tip)

It looked like a giant lawn sprinkler on steroids.....spun a board at maybe 400 RPM, and threatened to kill anyone within it's wobbly radius.

Personally, water ingress, and a few dings brings me closer to Spousal-Permission to get a new board.....She is far less happy about all of the fibers/dust/sanders/microballons/ noise discarded cloves masks and mess.....

I'd cut the tail of that thing off right behind the straps.....use the straps as the new rear....and put the mast track way up by the  "H" in Hi-per Tech

but then you are down to what 80L or less ?   being able to uphaul is kind of big if you want to play on the lower edge...I still think you are on the right track with the boogie board  2x4  foiler

but the mast/fuselage is right......

Not even convinced straps are "All that"

A Longer fuselage really helps, and the wing back closer to mast made the mast position more traditional

Watch your feet waterstarting, and if you can clew first waterstart, its better, as it brings your feet away from the blades

just went thru the video frame by frame at the crash
Didn't see it at first, but yup.... he cavitated ..tail wing first, then just for one frame, the front wing

That's how most of the crashes seems to happen...too high, lose lift, and drop

I hit a seal at speed...stopped pretty quick..... no blood on either end

Probably not gonna put a helmet on .. But it's gotta be pretty hairy rounding marks with 5  guys right behind you going full out         

Mostly at least a square meter smaller sail size than what you would rig otherwise....

My 5'10" wave sailing  Frankenfoil is almost ready for vacuum bagging

Sailing position is a bit awkward at first

Its pretty fun

The Shape Shack / Divinycell OVER fiberglass skin?
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:02:51 AM »
Wanting to change to a flatter rocker on a conversion to foilboard

Planning to tack a divinycell wedge (to flatten rocker) down to the sanded existing skin, and then vac it down with a covering layer of carbon/glass

Was going to tack it with maybe just contact cement spray ...or gorilla glue as the strength will come from the new skin....just need it steady while fairing it

Stripping the pre-existing bottom skin would save weight, but then I'd have to fair up a bigger mess with more pockets and tack the diviynicell to beat up foam

Thoughts?   TIA

I hear ya, but if you can't find one soon, consider

from Brownsugahs thread
I know it's wider, but the rocker's killer

what he said...

Late drop...feel the woosh

(or a  floater....big wide bords are good for that)

Foil SUP / Re: Slingshot Foils

So maybe per Beasho , the best way to compare/measure would be pure upward lifting force at different speeds each foil.

Surface area and width not so helpful...

Granted that's not 'surfability, but for this year at least, it feels like theres almost too many choices, and I would like to be able to have one front with a couple of tail wings for low speed sailing, and surfing

THis vid seems helpful:

I like sailing the H2, but wouldn't surf it unless I had a big rear wing


Well Stoney,
  In answer to your question, does all the research affect behavior:
(same boat different day)

 I remember when they said they wouldn't chum, then when there were no fish....they chummed
