9'7" ~ '62 Hobie Reproduction-Ready for the glasser
This is a US Blanks, Green Weight, 9-9B Blank with a chambered, ultra-light, 3" balsa stringer. I lowered the nose rocker to resemble my original Hobie, but left some tail rocker in it so it would turn a bit better than the original. Rail. Deck and bottom contours are pretty much spot on to the original. I'm expecting a 22 lb (+-) board after glassing; Double 6oz. both sides.
This one will get a full tint, a very light Mango (gold-ish yellow). It will have deck panels on each side of the stringer outlined in 2-tone purple, double pinlines.
