Re: Anyone Fishing?

Is that a funnel forming in the first picture? Yes sir, it is. We fished on but kept an eyeball on the thing. It ended up fully forming, quite an awesome spectacle of nature. AA the weather has been giving us a few breaks and the halibut fishing has been fair, or maybe a little better than that. I ...

Our first stop was at the 10 fathom break, just got a couple of fish at that depth. After careful consultation with the crew, the captain made the decision to run a...

Re: New fs14ls or fs18

I built the standard sheer version FS18 for my son. We love the boat, it performs flawlessly. I’ve also rode aboard my friend Derrick’s standard sheer FS14 a couple of times. The 18 is the more useable flats fishing boat for two anglers in my opinion. They both will perform great with a 15-25hp outb...

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas (PH20)

Community of builder and boat enthusiasts, what are your thoughts regarding brass drain tubes, verses just a hole that is clean and rounded on the edges?
