Re: FS 17 taking shape

Thank you all! I love the boat and hope to be out in her more this Fall. My goal is at least once a week during rockfish season at the 32 bridge :D

Re: FS 17 taking shape

Re: FS 17 taking shape

It's been a few years since I've been on the forum. However I wanted to chime in and say my FS17 is still going strong. She's in the same condition as when I finished building her in 2007/2008.

Re: A British FS17

Hey Steve! Man your boat looks great and I'm excited to see your numbers on it! I really dig the high sides! :!: I peep in ocassionally to look at the builds but not as much as I should. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine. It's hard to imagine what I did before a boat :lol:

His son joined the board and posted about about his passing a few months ago, I told him we would do what we could to help him finish his dad's boat. Im sure he is missed by a lot of people. Joel Thanks J...

Re: FS 17 IN HOMESTEAD PICTURES

Hello all, I'm sorry to post that our friend Farouk Khan (Bushmaster) has passed away. I received a call from his wife the other day confirming this most unfortunate news.
