Re: SK14 for sale

The SK14 is sold, but I still have the motor if anyone is interested. 2001 Merc 6hp long shaft that looks new, and I don't think it has many hours on it. Pushed the SK14 15mph with me and a cooler. $900.00 obo. Mike

Re: SK14 for sale

Jaysen, I'm not sure of the weight, but 2 guys can pick it up without the motor, so probably 150ish. Bob, I have only run the boat a few miles on the river, and have not gotten a drop of water aboard. If you take boat wakes slowly it just bobs over the wakes like a cork. I raised the sides 1" over w...

Re: SK14 for sale

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Look forward to seeing you all at the next builders meet, whenever and wherever that happens. Reid, are you getting close to the big move into the new facility?

SK14 for sale

Finally decided to sell the SK14 since my son has no interest and it has been just sitting in a garage for over a year. Has a 6 hp Merc, and a galvanized trailer with no rust. Graphite bottom, Awlgrip paint, flotation foam under sole, dry storage under foredeck. I do not have a title for the trailer...

Re: SK14 build question

I built the SK14, and in fact I'm listing it for sale tonight because I have 2 other boats and this one was for my teenage son and he's not interested in boating or fishing. I have a 6hp Merc weighing 56 pounds and I weigh 170. The extra weight for you at 230 and a heavier motor may not be a problem...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Beautiful job on the rod holders, but my only concern is that soft Styrofoam used. I don't think just brushing on epoxy will be enough protection on the faces, and maybe run a strip of light glass down the foam faces.....I would also plane down the inner sheer so the deck is flat. I think it looks b...

Re: Florida Sportsman Expo 2018

Reid and Jeff, Short notice for me, and besides, I have family arriving in town Friday for a few days, so couldn't make it anyway. Wish I could be there, have a great show. Mike

Re: Looking for help on adding a poling platform

Thanks for the compliment Bob. As you can see there's no need for the platform to hang out over the transom, and as others have noted you surely don't want any extra weight back there. I love that Jacques designs balance out perfectly if they are not overpowered. The FS18 with the 20hp 4 stroke sits...

Re: FS 14 LS Measurement Question

I used 6oz. woven on the decks and cockpit floors on my 3 builds. 2+ years of hard use on the FS18 and no problems. Mike
