I recently fitted some plugs into the deck of one of Andrews boards
 so he could mount a camera.
Here are the results.

Unfortunately there is a large ding on the rail.
At some stage it had been filled with car bog and glassed.
This had to go.
The area was cleaned up and a mould was made.
A&B foam was mixed and poured.

The new foam has been sanded below flush.
This will be built up with glass, sanded flush and then capped.

A little while back I acquired this Gordon Woods.
See older posts for more images.
The bottom had some pretty severe foam shrinkage
and needed filling along with the normal dents and dings
acquired over time.
Rather than fill the individual lows and try and sand
them, without sanding down the surrounding foam.
A bog screed was pulled over the whole bottom.
Then sanded fair. 
The rails, nose and tail were also filled where needed.

This board had a yellow tint glass job.
You wouldn't think so by looking at it now.
But there are areas on the deck and under the original fin
 that are definitely yellow.
The original plan was to rebuild the bottom
then do a pigment job to the cut lap line.
But as happens on occasion with these
kinds of jobs, plans can change as the job progresses.
As has happened here.
 The rails really needed some work and some extra glass.
So a pigment glass job around the rails onto the deck
 seemed the logical way to go.

One on one to go.
