Hi, just found forum. Been out of the water for years now and maybe its time for the boards to go. Maybe some one here can tell me if its worth selling them or shall they stay in the shed as shelves.
Both Bilbo. Both old, I was told by the factory when I got the longer one that it was probably early to mid 60's. Other looks similar. 1 is 10 foot long and other 9 foot 6. Both full length balsa stringers. Natural colour with black glassed in graphic, well lines plus Bilbo logo. 10 footer has what I was told is an original fin, hard blue plastic an bit like old swimming pools. Modern leash plus as I didn't like 30 pounds of board out of control. Other came with no fin! and intact glass where one should have been. Also Bilbo logo was twisted under the original gell coat. The factory said it might have been a reject but couldn't understand how it would have been made without any fin. It now has a wooden laminated fin of the same size as the other board. No plug but hole in fin. Both water tight. A few dents and both some tidy repairs to extreme nose and tail. Worth anything for history value? Must admit cash is reason to sell.
