I love the sporting woods Larry does and got to talk with him on cutty this spring about his design and how he does his and that was helpful. I make one thatís been productive thatís a little fatter and longer than the SW

Helmsman / mineral spirits to quick dunks with couple day dry period then 2-3 coats of true coat epoxy. Started using it last year havenít looked back. 1:1 mix no voc easy to use once you find a process that works for you

Sick work, dude! How do the Roman copies swim? That is a shape that has always intrigued me.

They swim great, I increased the head diameter by 1/16th of an inch to increase its purpose for the surf. Floyd made them for the canal using conventional gearó. They swim tastefully in a nice rip.
