Looks good,but it looks like you're not laying up a sandwich construction.If so how stiff are your boards?

Sandwich would just add weight and complexity. Because I'm not paying someone else to build it, I can afford to go 100% carbon, in lieu of sandwich.

The board is very stiff, zero vibrations, even in the roughest waters.
