After routering out the damage and rebuilding / fairing multiple layers of fiberglass.

Just visible on your left.



Enjoy your Gulf Stream Fastback Neil.

This blast from the past was in for a Rat Rod style resto to get it watertight.

The results.

This Board was made in Boscombe when it was still Hampshire, now its Dorset as the boundaries have been moved…guessing it was made in the 70s, note the red glitter fin!

Ian’s kiteboard which was presented to me with a weird buttock shaped bulge

on its planing surface, (I kid yee not).

I punctured said  bulges and they deflated with an audiable hiss..which I had recorded this.

This was caused by damage to the laminate which had absorbed water into the kiteboards core –

turning to steam in hot climate/car/sunshine.

Notice the witness marks in the core, taking the shape of the delamination.

I choose a Veneer sandwich repair.. the circular shape is ideal as it will dissipate any forces acting on it .

Just needing a hotcoat and polish to complete enjoy Ian.
