This is something I was ready for, but I may install a scupper out the transom with a flapper, maybe not.
Is there a reason you can't install a flapper type scupper out the sides? That was my plan so if there's a reason it won't work let me know. I was going to install drains out the sides that I can plug when she's overloaded with camp gear, and have them open when fishing and anchored. The drain to the bilge and thus bilge pump would be my way to get water out if and when the scuppers went below the water line.

Looks really nice Shine. is that Interlux blue? I just painted my FS17 the same color. How did you flip your hull, with overhead chain hoist and support frame or just manhandle and roll over?

Again, lloks great!

Those would work but I would prefer to to leave the side clean looking and route them out the transom.

Its Sterling topcoat, the color is Ice Blue. Its rolled and tipped

We rolled her in straps. Takes very little effort that way.

Just beautiful Joel. I can only imagine how good you boat looks in person.
How do you think the "ice blue" would look on my gf :?: :D

The boat looks awesome. I love the color and the sheer lines of this boat.


Great job. I am inspired even more.

awesome boat, you guys are artists with these boats.

i couldnt find the thread on the poling platform. i would love some info on it, to maybe come up something similiar for my boat.
im building a ob15 with an identical layout, sheer lowered almost 5", decks in front and back, very simple.

thanks tommy

NOT meant to derail Joel's thread but....

"im building a ob15 with an identical layout, sheer lowered almost 5",

Having built the OB15, one of the first to put decks on front and rear
and one of the first to lower the sheer. I would not lower the sheer of
the ob15 almost 5 inches.....

The sheer on the boat isn't all that high to start with, doing so will also
make your boat more narrow. Most of the people that lower the sheer
on that boat simply make the boat more level front to rear cutting the
camber out of the bow.

lets start a new thread on the OB15. I agree, there is no need to lower the OB15 sheer that much. I did not lower my FS17 that much and the FS17 has even higher sheer.
