More drawings based on the new OC17. These show a large canvas enclosure, a small canvas enclosure and center console and a small canvas enclosure over the standard two console version. I think I'm going to stick with the original plans and make the double console version with two canvas top options...

Hi all, This is just a series of questions that popped into my head this morning, reading a post about flats fishing and tunnels.

No Top 10 list.

Hi Fritz, Love the new look of the index page- shag-a-delic! (edited)Oh, I just noticed, it's a template. Anyway, I just wanted to cast my vote for reintroducing the "Last 10 Posts" menu on each page of the forum. It's difficult to get around without it. I have to back all the way out to read the ne...

I built a much smaller boat, but the simplicity of the GF18 design probably makes it comprable in terms of time to launch. It took from March to July 1 working a little every day. Livewell shouldn't be a problem. Jason McIntosh is building a beautiful GF18. Here's a link to his progress photos. Once...
