New arrivals, new projects....


A couple of new arrivals to the collection which as usual will need a bit of tlc, an 80s 6'1 Tris by Martin Wright, and a 6'8 circa 1970 snub nose backyard board with some great artwork, built like a tank and probably a force to be reckoned with out on the water.













Also half way through restoration is this beautiful Hayden singlefin from the late 60s, with its Greenough style fin; actually George was working with Hayden at the time making his amazing clear kneeboards. This board had some pretty heavy handed repairs with red resin and the previous owner also painted resin on the underside which I am taking back and repolishing, but its still got a few hours work left. Its a very elegant 6'11 built for Queenslands fast points.
