John C. Posted May 17, 2007 Share Posted May 17, 2007 Canard Zone has been very helpful for my surfboard building project using Rutan type materials and methods, finally the board is all laminated, ready for finish. Regular surfboard finish is built up resin gloss coats sanded and polished to beauty. We want to use a paint type finish to insure as close to waterPROOF as possible, beauty is secondary. All the resins soak a certain small amount of moisture and I'd think the aviation designers would address this and the players on this forum would know something about what they're thinking about composite resins water absorption and coatings to minimise it. Any thoughts please? Thank you, John C. San Diego Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
