New Bush Pig Prototype

New fibreglass prototype in the water. A 9”1” Bush Pig built on a heavy foam blank.This is a “blue” blank from Burford Foam with some nice Red Cedar stringers in a taper towards the nose.
Being a test it could have been built as a plain white board but I think it is a good chance to try a few other things at the same time.So it gets tapered stringers and a cut lap tinted glass- job using Volane cloth (7.5oz). This was also glassed on the deck in two separate layups to add a bit of weight for that old school glide.
I also did a new 9”6” in volane which is available to buy.
