Re: Eric's C21

There may well be some intersection then, for sure. For now you can show by example how to chase their own dream. Oh, and lord that boat looks bi...

Re: LM18 logistics and questions

Hello Wagstaff. I'm from San Antonio, living in Blanco now. The CNC kit will cost you more but save some time. It does eliminate a fun part of the build though, measuring and cutting out the panels.

Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat
