Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

For the swim ladder you may want to consider building a step that can be bolted trough the transom similar to the one I made for the FS 19 I built.

Re: FS18 on the double!

Your boat build looks great! Well done. I really like the look of a brass drain tube and have used them on three different projects. Hard to tell from your pictures, but the drain tube flaring tool requires some clearance all the way around the hole to properly roll the edges of the tube down on to ...

Re: C17 in the bayou

On the FS 19 a bow frame is attached to Frame A to provide support to the hull & bow so that it won’t droop when stitching together the hull. Once the hull was flipped and all the frames were removed, the bow was already shaped. The sheer line can be trimmed after flipping to whatever style is desir...

Re: Hull support after flip?

Congratulations Guy on being near the flipping stage. Well done.

Lots of different approaches to how to flip and what to do next. Do what works best in your situation.

The FS 19 I built went right on its trailer and everything worked fine.

Looking forward to what you do in the interior.

Epoxy resin shelf life is affected by many things.

The reactiveness of the two components should not be affected however and the...

Re: Coach's SC-16 in MA

You are making great progress and the boat is looking good! The use of fiberglass cloth over the sole, interior of the hull and gunwales will add considerable durability and abrasion resistance to the boat. But it comes at the cost of additional weight, and possibly more time for fairing and sanding...

Re: od18 for sale

I’m intrigued. Just trying to figure out how long a drive it is from Savannah, GA, and how I would get the boat project back home.
