Hawaiian koa~California redwood

Al Merrick template big-gun Tri fins, Old-growth California redwood, figured koa with white maple pin lines. This fin set will go on a 10-6 Merrick gun........the gun is of solid redwood, chambered down to a weight in the 30 lb range. The board and fin redwood are out of beams and staves from huge industrial casks that once aged red wine (early 20th century) at a now defunct, northern California winery. Pretty cool!
