Re: FS-18 - "Bare Bones"

Glad to see you back Richard. Bare Bones must have been feeling a little neglected. From the pictures the paint looks nice but I know up close it can be different. Take care and again glad your back at it.

Re: GF16 Prop Selection

Re: My daughter wants a boat.

Re: C19 versus C21 outboard question

Christer it would help us to suggest a boat for you if we knew a little more about what you were going to use it for. How far offshore, or intercoastal waterway. Type of fish you are targeting. Are you going to close in structure and wrecks. While I love the C17 and was very close to building a cons...

Re: C-17 Our first Build !

The reason for shortening the skeg in front of the transom is to prevent disturbed water reaching the prop and causing cavitation. It doesn't have to be much a foot is plenty. But it really is necessary .
