This 9-8Y has a Triple Stringer glued into it. It has a 3/16″ Bass center stringer with (2) 1/8″ Red Wood stringers 6″ out.
Shaper’s (Rennie Yater) Comments: The original 10’1’Y was returned to me and I cleaned it up and the best side was scanned. That program has been used to machine cut the 9’3″Y, 9’8″Y, and the 10’8″Y plugs. The natural rocker is about in the middle of the demand curve. But remember, the further you change the natural rocker curve the wider the wood stringer it needed to hold it from spring back.
