    Nice work man, now you're on your way. Glad those pieces work out for you, its good stuff to have laying around just in case. I'm about to build my rold holders out of some 1/4" foam this weekend.

    You should start a build thread in the bragging section so we can see the progress.

    I might do that, I just got Penske for my gunnels. I also got some foam that hells bay uses for stuff that's crazy light and strong!

    no a guy named johnathan glassner, he knows exactly what hes doing and taught me a lot when I went and picked it up. imo I bought 200 dollars worth of knowledge and got the board for free. hes out of rockledge and only works on hells bays and bt.

    also I got some material that only hells bay and nasa has im pretty sure. the toughest and lightest stuff I will ever see in my life probably!

    one additional thing! I traced my gunnels while I was there to match a 16 whipray! ;D I might not be able to afford a full one right now but at least my gunnels will be the same!

    got my platform from ankona to!

    The platform was 500 with tax. A little pricy but it's one of the prettiest platforms I've ever saw. It came with a extra feature I wasn't expecting either which is the bracket on the back that you can stick the pole through and use as a stick like a power pole.

    I also got to snoop around Ankona and they weren't shy to tell me there tips and tricks which I was surprised! The shadow cast is a very basic boat!

    Thank you guys also I'm getting there slowly but surely. Mr. Glassner helped me out tremendously also big thanks to him!
