This looks like a good option also. It would be easy to install a fin box.

You can puchase fins and the fin box to mount it in. I ordered a set so I could see the best way to mount it in a board. Looks pretty easy.

Still working on a different system where it can be built all by a person using wood and fiberglass.

Matt, I have been thinking. I have 4 people that want me to build them boards. I am working on the new shop and just about facilitated to take on a project like this. (will post shop pics soon!)

My thoughts are, could I speed up the process by building a strong back? Bypass the whole stitching thing by stapling, clamping, taping, ect the pannels to the strong back. Then do some of the filleting on the strong back, pull it off and finish the fillets and so on. I was also thinking about making jigs out of mdf so I could cut all the pannels out with the router. Each boat would be accurate and exactly the same. A little extra time spent at the beginning might pay off in the end. Who knows, I might build more of them.

What do you think about this and do you have any other ideas or suggestions? Thanks

Will

A strong back with stationary forms and clamping methods instead of stitching will save a lot of time building. Like you said, more work up front.
