Was finally able to work on the wife's paddle board today. Got the bottom on and sanded. Worked at getting the shape right and now I'll add the rails.

The rails are going slowly. A few more layers on the port side then do it all over again on the starboard side. The guys in the video make putting the rails on look much easier than it is..

Started the starboard rail and it is a pain, but I have an idea I will try tomorrow. With the port side done, there is nothing for the clamps to hold against. I'll give my idea a try and post pictures,

Port side rail done except for fairing. Need a flat surface so board can stand on it's side.

Two layers of rail on today and hope to get a 3rd on this afternoon. Finally going faster on the rails. Hope to glass it next week. I did find a better way to clamp around the curves.

I can't take credit for that Roberta. Wife came down and saw my work and told it would be better if I did that. I didn't catch it. My bad. But the wife says thanks
