Extensive tail repairs, largely due to  leg rope damage.

COMMENTS

Made under license in Australia, McCoy also produced models from fellow Hawaiians, Barry Kanaiaupuni and Sam Hawke.
Strangely, Reno's surname is spelt incorrectly... Abellira not Abelliro.

In the email reproduced right, Reno Abellira suggests that boards with the Reno laminate where shaped by him at McCoy's while in Australia.
