It's a nice board. I don't want it to snap. I think I'll pick up a rubber sanding wheel for my angle drill so I can sand off all the deck dust and paint. Then do at least a layer of glass, epoxy, and ...

Westender, what is the 'tweener option you mentioned?

Seems like something should go over the foam to stop water, but also does not seem like I really need a 1/4 inch of new reinforcement. The boa ...

The second photo is with the excess foam scraped off.

Now to either simply seal it and go sailing, or sand off all the paint and gri ...

Forget loops and other tricks. You know you're the man when you can snap 40% of your board off and continue your sesh like nothing happened.

Your point about the buckling issue is a concern. When new, the board worked like a glulam beam. Although how structural is weightless EPS foam. Not much, but it must add something. I could go over th ...

You are correct, I had no real question. I like the money savings and ease of use of Doug's DIY Gorilla Glue solution, but presume to get enough of the glue wet enough, I'd need triple the number of h ...

I was just given a 2014 Tabou 3S with soft spots all over the deck. I don't sail a lot. Seems like Doug's solution or injecting urethane 2-part foam would work. Between kids and mountain biking this b ...

Rumor has it the blob is back. Does anyone follow that subject and have an opinion on whether or not I should buy the whole family Mt. Baker seasons passes? They aren't cheap. Tickets, gas, and incide ...

😬

Can't find my 4.5. Don't even know where we parted ways. I'll pay shipping and a reward to get it back if anyone stumbles across it. Probably an issue of me not properly securing my load ...
