Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

Got up early to get to work so I'll have a few hours of quiet cool time to climb around the inside of the boat. I have only 4 more cleats to glue in and I will call it done. 5259 These go just above the inside chine and are smaller pieces of cedar. You can see them roughly in the picture. You can al...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

When you hook them up in series it drops the voltage from the resistance of each light and one break they all go out.

Re: Fs14 ls

The frames need to be a maximum of 36" or less apart. I moved my aft frame back closer to the transom. Then added extra frame or 3. But my cockpit is 8.5 feet I think.
