My new 12'6 Tim Stamps Race board more photos of the shape-out.

Check her out from a couple more angles:

Tough to photograph such a long, totally white object- Tim brought her out from the shape room to have a look at the curves in different light.
Here's a shot of the bottom... lots of stuff going on there.
The footwells with the spine running right down the middle... kind of like a steel I-beam construction to keep her stiff.
All done and ready to go to the glass shop- you can get a little peek at the foil of the board and how the nose curves blend into the rest of the board.
Another bottom shot... there's a lot of fine tuning that goes on before the board can be called completed... I didn't understand much of what was going on but it sure looked cool.
Tim calls this nose, "the Concorde nose".
One more shot of the bottom of the hull.
