That would be based on current rail volume, foil, nose and tail widths etc. It's possible the older one is a bit different. I can't imagine it being hugely different though. Probably a little less I'd guess.
Thanks guys. Yeah, 36.7 is the current model. The old one is half an inch narrower and an 8th of an inch thinner, so should be less volume.

the old one is a lot more rolled through the deck with a less boxy rail compared to the new one. I have the old 6'10"x20 7/8x2 3/4. I am thinking about selling it to update and I wouldnt mind knowing the volume if anyone is digging through old cad files. The new one seem a lot boxer when I put one under my arm the other day.

Here's how to measure it yourself:
1. place 50L water in a large tank (say 7' x 24" x 24")
2. submerge surfboard completely but only just below surface (otherwise your arms will also displace water)
3. mark new water level
4. take surfboard out
5. add water in measured amounts until water level rises to mark
What's wrong with that! LOL Doesn't everyone have a spare tub of those dimensions?
