The Concept Drawing…
This drawing was never intended as a plan, just a way to explain what I wanted to my shaper.
There are 3 major points to make here:
One is the dual outline, an inner board and an outer wing, flowing together smoothly towards the middle of the board. Another is the wing rocker, which is much greater than the main, or inner board. The third is the concave wing, as seen from the rear, at the end of the wing. Notice that it’s raised above the main board’s bottom, so it’s not engaged except when turning or slogging.
