Where’s the foam  gone?


The heat from the resin curing burnt the core….tip – rebuild with the same

construction as original.




I believe in safety first, the grey painted patch didn’t look right on close inspection –

slightly raised areas which had a spongy feeling when pressed,  the above photos say it all.

This SUP (stand up paddleboard is in good hands and will be given a new leash of life.

Result, now to fix the multiple dings up nose.

I used a white tint to the resin to hide the four dings that needed routering clean – filling and then a layer of glass over the whole nose area wrapped around the rails.This glass panel was required as the nose had stress cracks all over it – notice Rory I squared of the Nose tip to remove damage and now it has a safer profile.
