Side cut Fish
Well, I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about with the side cut fish. There was a lot of chatter about them and I was anxious to get back to twin fins again, and well, I just thought, heck, I’m on it. No new ground was broken, but there are a couple of interesting things to talk about. And someone had to bump Huck’s board off the social media and it might as well be me. (Sorry, Huck, hope you found that funny, no offense intended)
Here is a pic of the shaped blank. Stringerless. Rail channels. 6-0 by 21.5. Low rocker (I’ll check my notebook later and post rocker and fin setting).
BTW, anyone just starting out, keep a notebook with dimensions and other notes. And keep a separate notebook on glassing. IE, what you did with the glass, how many ounces of epoxy resin you used in each situation and how it turned out. You will be glad you did later when doing similar boards and wonder if you need one or two layers of 4 oz, or how many ounces of resin it took for a double 6 oz 6-0 fish. Etc, Etc, Etc.
I’ll post some more pics and commentary tomorrow.
