I haven't had any trouble with the stringerless boards delaminating. There's a few stringerless Mandalas out there that have been daily drivers for many years with no major problems. Just ask Marty in Long Beach---he's got a 5'5" quad fish that's going 3 years strong without problems...

I've been glassing them double-4oz top and bottom...no worries with Moonlight glasswork.

I hav e seen Joe at Rincon the last few weeks ripping on the Olive drab quadfish you made him. He was with Slater yesterday at the con. Must like the board, he's riding it everyday there! :
