10-6 SUB
« on: July 12, 2008, 08:26:07 AM »
Aloha- this is my first post so I thought I'd place some pics of the latest board I built for my personal use.
10'6" x 28" x 4 1/2"
1.5 lb EPS (American Blanks)
Double Gortex vented (Casica Engineering)
Five fin (measurements supplied by Greg Griffin)
Deck: 2 x 6oz
Bottom: 4.8oz carbon fiber w/1 x 6oz
Probox fin system
RR Epoxy.






I am taking her out today for the first time.

Mahalo for looking,
Mahana

Great looking board.

But why did you put the carbon on the bottom????????

Carbon is strongest under compression I thought.

Windsurfers now only put it on the top.

The biggest problem is stopping the board flexing and it flexes upwards due to the water pressure.

Just a thought and we all leave our boards upside down to save the bottom. Black is not good in the sun.

Russell.

Russell- Thanks! The decision to put the carbon on the bottom was made because of the heat factor, I have another board that is gray and the deck gets hot while paddling. When the board is out of the water it goes into a mylar bag. I still get the strength benefits of the carbon on the rails.

Randy- Great to be here! Here's the larger pics:






PlankSpanker- Mahalo! She rode well. I Have not made the fins yet so I put in a set of Spitfire quads. The pulled in tail made turning easy. I can't wait to get it into some waves bigger than waist high.

I have been glassing PE boards for a while but still have not mastered epoxy, I get a bit of blush on my bottom rail laps, but every one gets better than the previous.

I've been doing some back yard board building using EPS & EPOXY. I'll be glassing a 14' board next week. Want to watch.......... ;)

Maybe we can learn from each other........ ::)

Aloha.........Sam

Sam
-I wish I could make it but I moved to the mainland several years ago, still find myself back there about three  times a year though. I was just talking to my friend KK today about lining up a couple of SUB's for when I'm on the westside in October. Hopefully you have a project going on around that time.

I was talking to Sam about how I dealt with the rigidity of the carbon when hand laminating. The only trouble area is the tail so I eliminate the problem by trimming the rail lap in this fashion:

the swallow is cut flush with the edge.

Was the blank at 1.5 pounds per square foot?

1.5 lbs per cubic foot, I believe this is how the weight of eps foam is measured.
