Matt,
Matt, you've mentioned before that you've worked on coming up with another paddle board design. I haven't heard anything recently so I was wondering if you had something in the works.
I'm not even done with my first boat (which has taken me about 6 months) and I'm already thinking about my next one.
I like the paddle board you designed, especially after following Neon's build and watching his video. My wife would like something a little more sea worthy. Not necessarily a surfing paddle board but something to take to the beach, maybe with a removable fin for going in the river as well.
I'm just curious,

Chris

I played with something a little more speedy and narrow in the stern. It would reduce stability some but would be more nimble. Is that what you mean by more sea worthy or ...?

Yeah, I think so. But I would think that it would need a little more rocker to handle waves and rougher water. The ability to mount a fin I think would help too. But I really dont know.
