Put some brass inserts in for the Dynema loops to go thru. I would use something a little different next time. It's what I had.Dynema tie down loops. Like they used to make leash loops out of glass.
 Surfcowboy, I have made hollow wood boards in the past and wanted to try something different. Yes the idea is taken from boat building.

Leas loops are in. 2 in the tail and 1 fwd. Some Dynema tie down points as well. Backing plates behind the leash points. This has to be stronger than plugs for a hollow board.

Making progress. Slow but getting close. Playing with color in the epoxy. It's hard to get an even color.
 Use more tape! Still got epoxy runs everywhere!

What do you mean " The rough look". Yes no paint to cover up dodgy work here.
 Not sure how long. Maybe next weekend. Just need to put the handle in and a coat of epoxy all over. Just a rough coat.

Get it wet!
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

Some carbon tape over the join too. Kevlar probably better but I only have wide tape and it looks rubbish.
No one ever said, wow that kevlar stripe looks awsome!

The board is looking very nice. BTW, that kevlar stripe would look awesome if you were to use it instead of carbon.

How did you get that rounded shape between the rail and bottom near the nose? It looked like you laid up panels on a flat surface. Were they flexible enough to bend over the frames? I would have expected some sharp transitions like a hard chine.

The bottom panel I only layed up inside. 2mm foam 165g carbon kevlar hybrid. I glued that to the frames then faired and glassed.
 It was really easy. It almost stuck itself down!
 The panels on the sides ended up with a chine as they were a little too stiff and didn't follow the curve of the frame.

Don't paint it! I would paddle a board that looks like that in a second. Nicely done.
