This was not easy. I did not use a vacuum bag. Luckily, Carl Ekstrom was at the factory one day, and I asked for advice he had on attaching the wood. One great thing about being in SD is the knowledge walking around at any moment. Carl told me he just had a conversation with Tom Morey who is doing something similar. Well, I took the advice and it worked. Still it was not easy, but I am happy with the outcome. I am sending the board to Central Coast Fiberglassing for the rest of the glassing. They are really good with epoxy.
