Revisiting a fish - Part III

OK, just to finish up this thread...
Here's an earlier shot I found that I think is cool. It shows the Striper getting her planks clamped.
Here you can see one of the pre-glass fins in place, the other fin slot routered out, and how the swallow tail rails are constructed. Wetting down the wood helps us see the fine details in seams.
Here she is just about ready for final rail shaping.
Here it's ready for finishing. There is Mikey's longboard on the left there too.
All glassed and ready - I'm going surfing.

That is one beautiful fish.
Nice work guys. Am going to try a wooden board over the winter sometime myself.
