egg-citing renovation of old board

I have been calling this one el wave-o loco.  Its an old leaky 7-4 I took apart and am rebuilding from the ground up, using the old rails.  Almost finished with the framework, ribs at 2 1/2" on center, current weight 3.5 lbs.

gribblefodder aka zatarra

Finally decided on "zatarra" as the official name of this one - from a line in the movie Count of Monte Cristo (it means driftwood).  Got it glassed, and just awaiting some funds to purchase more resin, as it needs a final coat or two.  Weight at this point 10.5 lbs.
