Re: Pocket Board (HF) Layup Question

yeah a week time to cure is a good idea.
12mm is so thin man, I'm going now for 30mm with paulownia in the plate mount, just a 16x20cm (not a complete piece) with holes for the inserts, something like Pierrot showed here http://kitefoil.forumactif.org/t7787-no ... 2x45#64699

Re: Pocket Board (HF) Layup Question

Plan is to go one layer at a time, deck-bottom-deck... over the rails.I've got time to let it fully cure beforenext layer
