This board was only in for some fin tuning.
But I think it is well worth adding.
It has had a basic restoration at some point.
The bottom comp stripes are not original.
They are covering some repairs.
The surfcraft rego sticker is also not original.

9'2 1/2" x 22 1/2" x 2 11/16"
N 16 3/8"
T 17 3/4"
Pod 6"
2" balsa stringer with the number 52
written in pencil on the stringer just
fwd of the leg rope loop.

The wide point is 14 3/4" behind centre.
As is the thickness.

The chequered  McDonagh  logo.
 Pinched rails.
A refined Greenough stage 1
or a Velo SS Mk 2 fin.
All suggest this pig was built in 1966 or early 67.

This old log was a bit poorly when it arrived.
9'4" x 21" x 3"
N 16 1/4"
T 15 3/4"
Pod 4 3/4"

Ready for some glass.

This logo was originally ten
 individual logos arranged to form a circle.
Six of them disappeared when this repair was done. 

The red section of the fin
is chopped strand matt.

New logo ready for some filler.

Freshly glossed.

The owner of this board
preferes off the brush gloss coats.
