The Waterlog is done.

Not shown is the nice 10" Takayama (amber) fin I put in. I took the board out to Nauset on Friday in pretty small conditions and it caught waves like a champ. Very smooth and stable board. Great for typical Nauset beach conditions. I now have two 10' boards so the Gordon & Smith Noserider is up for sale.

exfrigginquisite!

Nice grain pattern selections and that squared off tail gives her some really elegant lines - that is one classy, glassy, glossy, ride. Looking at that sweeping outline make me thing waterlog is the wrong name :)

Nice work Parke. Good luck on the wing too!

Wow, that is one beautiful board, man. I REALLY like that the deck isn't broken up by any accent lines of a different color --it makes the board look like it was skillfully carved out of a single piece of wood. very classic. very cool. congratulations!

WS -

That's a really beautiful board. I love the grain patterns towards the nose. Beautiful work.

I was reading through your blog and read about your resin mess. I just had the same thing happen to me except I mixed up the epoxy pumps. Can't believe I did it. Complete bonehead manuever. All that work to then blow it on the glass job. Anyhow, I was planning to use a heat gun to remove the glass then using acetone to remove the rest and then sanding off what those don't get of. Since you've gone through this process do you have any words of wisdom before I jump into the muck?

Thanks

Crispo, don't worry, you haven't ruined your board.

Setup a nice comfortable work area with lots of ventilation. It goes slowly but it will come off. You'll get a feel for how quickly the epoxy heats up enough to scrape off. Just heat the area in front of a putty knife and direct the gun's blast in the direction you are working. I would stop heating when you see smoke.

Afterwards, I used a paint scraper with a sharp blade when I was using the acetone. Then I sanded with 50 grit to get down to wood where the epoxy hadn't soaked in. It doesn't soak too deep in so I really didn't have to sand much off.

In retrospect, I ended up doing a better sanding job on the board.

A HEPA/organics (not just dust) respirator would be a must. Who know what kind of nasties will be generated from all that heat.

Errrrrrrrr uuuuhhhhhhh wwhhhaaat? I was heat gunning that epoxy all last night and I got to tell you I feel gooooooddd! Or maybe I just don't feel anything at all.

Just kidding. Thanks for the tip Rich. I definitely had an organics/HEPA filter, a well ventilated area and gloves. I don't like to mess around when it comes to that stuff. I did many ding repairs when I was a little kid without any protection and remember having a headache afterwards. What was I thinking? I wasn't. I was a kid. Be on the safe side and always wear skin and respiratory protection when working with chemicals like that.
