Re: FS12 15hp porpoising

I built a FS12 and have a Tohatsu 8hp 4-stroke carbed up to a 9.8. I am surprised you are not reving out with the 15. I had to put a slightly larger prop on mine to keep from over reving. My son is 125lbs and his buddy is about 110. The boat runs right at 22mph and get on plane quickly. I put a 3 ga...

Re: 2015 mercury 20hp low hours

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Looks really good. How was doing all the motor rigging? Anything you are changing now since you are putting the finishing touches on the boat?

Re: LM18 Madison Wi Building questions

It's the bottom of the boat and it certainly won't be seen BUT the low spots will stay low. I spent the extra time on mine and I'm glad I did.

Re: “The Beast”

Thanks for posting all the pictures of your router setups. It is nice seeing the results but I am always left guessing how it was done. Definitely provides good insight for future projects.

Re: SOLD! FS18 and a Yamaha F25 SOLD!

I have had no less than a dozen texts from "Dave" the guy that bought my FS18. He was considering a Gheenoe and is overjoyed that he bought the FS18. He added a GPS and sent me a few photos of the modifications he has made. I have given him feedback on the modifications and future repairs along with...
