SUP, y'all? How about some stand up paddle board progress?

Last night Brian and I worked a bit on the stand up paddle boards. My frame is complete and his is nearly there. We should be varnishing the frames next week and ordering the 8oz. skinning polyester canvas. Here's a couple pics I snapped before work this morning. It was too dark at 11pm when I finished the final lashing last night to take any.

As a side note, what a beautiful evening to be working in the driveway and garage! Temps in the low 60s, tested out a new Missouri Meerschaum corncob pipe (Cobbit Dwarf), barred owls fighting in the redbud tree over the driveway and a very bright shooting star directly over town. You don't see either of those often.

Your SUPS Look Great. My brother and I built ours up to the paintied but no deck stage. We stopped as weather got too cold. His is a jumbo version and mine is strait from the Gentry plans. Looking forward to trying them out soon. May be will see ya out some where.

Nathan,

I think I saw those on the Sail Oklahoma Yahoo Forum. Very nice! I am in limbo on the SUP builds until we find someone with the right size 8oz polyester fabric available. KudzuCraft is out and I've got an email into George Dyson, but I've not heard back yet.

Until then I can supply you with enough to do yours if you want, I bought extra.

I just went over to That forum, and yeah sure enough my big Bro put up pics I didn't know about:)
