Count Duckula, Unveiled

6'8" x 22 3/4" x 2 1/4" bottom halfer hull named Count Duckula.  This design also by K.Ablers, nearly 3 hour shaping execution by me...this is officially, and by far the most difficult and challenging board I have ever shaped.  Nearly flat deck, full hull bottom, the rails are that of a flex spoon; that's to say pretty round on bottom (not the full bladed rails on boards like the hullibut), and the top half is flattened off.
The tail will be a glass flex panel, and is templated off the Gull, wider, trash-can style.  

I will do my best to post more detailed shots of the shape, but its likely that photos may never convey exactly what is going on here, as with most of the shapes I viewed in person, as always.

I don't know what else to say about this shape other than it is a complete mind f*ck and i couldn't shape anything else the rest of the day.

Pretty nice, but my question is why doesn't a Duckula have DVD? Put that diamonds on that boogie and bang that bone!
