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

+1. It will stand out for sure. Very special. (maybe save a pound or two on weight?)

Got it wet!!
 Short paddle. Didn't snap in half, didn't sink. All good.
 Seemed plenty stable and tracked well. Calm but there were lots of boats about so a bit choppy. Still a little swell from the breeze and paddling with it the board had that feeling it wanted to go. Stood a bit too far fwd and buried the nose and tracked straight. Surprising how little chop it takes to come over the bow. Dosnt come back into the standing area though. Standing area seems to drain ok when water does get in there. When I'm not standing on the drain holes! Really like the recessed standing area and being able to push the sides of your feet against the vertical part. Need to get some pad! Bit slippery!

It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I don't use.

Turned out pretty heavy. About 13.5 kgs. I think it's just under 14. Not too happy about that. Didn't do a final weigh. Last time I weighed it was before the handle went in and final coat of epoxy.
