Designer Comments

The 10’8 BG was designed and built by Eric Arakawa and Pat Rawson using a combined effort. “The original plan was to build a combo Big Guy/Gun blank (ala ‘BG’) that could be offset-cut narrower for performance Guns, but have a built-in, wider stock width suitable for many different options. The 9’3” A was used as a conceptual starting point, and the bottom and deck contours are fairly flat in the stringer area to enable ordering an offset cut to net a narrower version (23.5” to 24”) without the normal peak at the stringer that more contoured blanks can produce when narrowing by 2”- 3”. The rocker is universal and the natural rocker should offer many design opportunities, due to the ample thickness in the nose and tail areas.”
