Description

Designed by two more greats – Eric Arakawa and Pat Rawson  for a 11’00” plus BIG GUY cruiser. Quite a universal blank. There’s a 10’08” Version. This has a 3/8″ bass stringer for security.

Shaper’s Comments:  The 11’8 BG is the big brother to the 10’8 BG, and was designed and built by Pat Rawson and Eric Arakawa 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 93A 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.”
