Hi guys if you haven't read my other posts I am living in south Africa and am in the process of building myself an oc1 out of an old surf ski having never actually seen an oc in real life.
Anyway I have almost finished my iako mounts on the ski and have started shaping my ama out of the foam from an old surfboard and have started making a paddle with marine ply/epoxy blade and bamboo/epoxy shaft. the iakos are also going to be made from bamboo and are bent and drying out as I type this.
I will continue to put updates on here if anyone is interested any post some pix if I can.
any suggestions are welcomed and I would like to thank all the users on here that have been so helpful so far.
I am attaching pics of the paddle so far I attached it with a filler of epoxy resin and wood flour and plan to put a layer of glass over the top when I have finished faring it.
