Re: Plyak 12 build for Coastal Wildscapes

Thanks guys for the support. I began this morning joining the pieces together to make full length hull panels. Used the excess epoxy I mixed up to coat one side of the frames and the sole, and some of the smaller pieces like the skeg and the knees. If I have time in the morning I’ll do a little more...

Re: C17 in the bayou

BoatUS has a department that does vinyl stickers for boat names and registration numbers, etc. That is where I got mine done for my brother’s FS-19.

Re: Plyak 12 build for Coastal Wildscapes

Re: Plyak 12 build for Coastal Wildscapes

Stopped by Boat Builder Central in Vero Beach, FL and picked up the fiberglass cloth, epoxy and the plywood CNC kit for the kayak. Great to see Reid and Jeff. They had taken the extra step of wrapping the Plywood sheets in plastic for me as it was raining and they didn’t want anything to get wet, si...

Re: FS 19 build

The hull draft of the FS-19 is less than a foot. The draft is comparable to or better than my Egret 189 Carbon/Kevlar flats skiff.

The CNC kit was just cut on Monday and I’m driving down to pick it up next week. Just started a build thread in the Builder’s Small Boats section. I hope to crank it...

It’s sweet spot is around 4000 RPMs and 30 MPH getting almost 7 MPG. Fixed the few little things that needed fixing and now it is ready to move to VI...
