Re: Eastern NC SK-14

Looks great and super customized.

Thanks for the tip on the Wetlander bottom coating.

Looking forward to seeing and hearing about your adventures with the boat.

Congratulations.

Re: Questions about building in general and the FS19 in particular.

Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your decision to build a boat. As one of the first builders of the FS19 and having used the boat quite a lot I can give you some answers about the boat. However since many of your questions are beyond my knowledge my guess is that the designer will likely pro...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

Sorry to hear about your setbacks. I’ve built five boats and during each build there was something that didn’t go according to plan. Mostly everything took longer than intended, something didn’t cure correctly, sometimes things cured too fast. Paint adhesion issues. You name it. Even after the boats...

Re: Cape Man's Dory

I’ve built 5 boats now, a cooler and two folding dog show tables with ramps. Was just thinking today about what to build next. That epoxy must get in your blood somehow. :)

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

Guy,

Your paint job looks great!

Be prepared for lots of people not believing that you built the boat yourself.

Re: OB19 in the Chesapeake

When I was a little kid my grandparents bought an apartment in the tallest building in Ocean City at that time. The new building was a staggering 7 stories tall! ;) It was on the beach at 65th street which was pretty much the end of the road at that time. The bridge going across the Assawoman Bay th...

Re: SK14 in TX

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on embarking on a boat building project. It looks like you have either an American Water Spaniel or a Boykin. I’m a fan. Currently have an American Water Spaniel, the fifth one we’ve owned. Hunted a lot of ducks with them all over from Canada down to Arkansas...

Re: OB19 in the Chesapeake

Happy to help. I grew up in Maryland and my family had a boat on the Chesapeake bay on the South River for many years. I also used to trailer a variety of boats to Ocean City because we had a place there for almost 40 years. We fished all over the Bay and the Eastern shore. Inshore, near shore and o...
