Re: FS14 Wolf's build

I've enjoyed watching you put things together, figuring it out as you go. That is what I like too Pee Wee. The builders that say I have a problem here and then show how they got past it really makes it easier when I get to one of those places in my build. OQ that is the greatest part of the Forum.

Re: LM18 deck To glass or not glass?

Yep agree with thb use the 6 oz prevents checking and prevents any dings and dangs. :lol: That boat weighs so little the 6oz will add little to the over all weight.

Re: C23

cbdigh is there a reason that you are hung up on a 23 foot boat. A 21 foot is used by most walleye anglers that I know of. The extra 2 feet adds extra material and requires additional HP. As Jacques pointed out the PH22 may be the ultimate boat for you. Able to handle waves in a bay. The Abaco 23 wo...

Re: Will a FS14 still plane with my weight?

OrangeQuest no need to use Kevlar. A couple of layers of 12oz and then 3layers or 25 - 33% graphite powder will protect your bottom from anything you encounter. Kevlar is a pain to work with and is usually done with vacuum pressure in commercial boats. thb has some experience with it so knows how to...

It also protects the deck from the normal use of dropped objects and other wear and tear. It really doesn't add that much weight.

Re: GF16 Bottom and Freeboard??

The 1/4 inch is correct. You would never be able to make the curve of the bottom with 1/2 inch without kerfing. CL put two layers of fiberglass on the bottom side for strength and for the oyster bars in his area. I rode in his GF16 and it was solid as a rock, even with one to two foot white caps at ...

There has been some new technology also, like Minn-Kota's onboard alternators. https://minnkotamotors.johnsonoutdoors.com/board-alternator All wiring needs to be in chase tubes.
