Knots, Scraps and a new 12'

Paddleboard#9: The goal is to build a stable and fast paddleboard that can be handled by a 98lb weakling, or my friend, Cyndie (sorry Cyndie:) Using one center rib, whindlass' at each end (knots) and superthin doorskin to sheath it, i think I may be on to something. I can lift this thing with one hand. I also found I could tape th scraps, from the deck, together and make the bottom. Very ECOnomical. More photos here.
