Old Template~New Look

Here she is!
This 9'7" Papaya stick is the 2nd reproduction of the '62 Hobie that I have.
The previous posts show her under construction. With the chambered balsa stringer, the board is amazingly light weight, even with a very sturdy, double-6oz glass job, deck and bottom by Michael Miller. Michael nailed the tint color and the resin pinline colors for me perfectly!

Fin: Figured jatoba (Brazilian cherry)
The tint color photographed accurately. The pinline colors are actually 2-tone purple although they appear blue in the photographs.
This one is for sale.
