Designed and lofted. Just as a practice run, maybe one day build one at full size for the lake.

Stand up paddle boards are popular around here, it was a thought about a way to make some cash for custom boards. Tried a scale model to see how a build would go. These boards are hollow to keep the weight down.

That’s neat,Eric. What kind of wood did you use? I thought they had foam inside and fiberglass on the outside?

cheers, Jim

I used sheets if basswood, picked up at hobby lobby. Lofted a scale drawing build forms from 1/8” stock, the covered it with 1/16” stock. I wanted to give it try in a scale, to see if it would be feasible to build. Possible money maker around here.

If I was to build full scale there would be about 11 frames using 1/2” stock, covered with 1/4” stock, then glassed to protect the wood. Basically the same way one would build a strip planked kayak. It just a couple of ideas that I have come up with to supplement an income, during the retirement years. Still have about 5 before that though.
