Share shipping charges to Milwaukee

Looking for someone to share shipping charges on some plywood to anywhere near Milwaukee, WI. I do not need a whole lot, so it's difficult to justify the shipping charges alone.

Not an expert, have only built a small boat so far, but here are some thoughts. 1. You can build the CX-19 with a motor bracket which should allow you to reduce the length of the transom. This along with the other changes you proposed would make the boat heavier and more complicated and more expensi...

I will be using the new evinrude e-tec 60. I hear amazing things and I cant wait to try it out.
I was at the Evinrude web site. It appears that the smallest saltwater series e-tec is the 90hp. The 60 appears to be for freshwater use. Am I missing something?

Seems like last year at this time, possibly slightly later, we had a mess of FL14 builds going on too, including mine. Do some FL14 searches and I'm sure you will find all kinds of info and pics. Good Luck, this is a great boat!!

Just for information, I used 1 x 2 strips of red oak for the skids on the bottom of my fl14. glued on only, no screws. I only used them because home depot had some 10ft lengths for $3.00!! They have held up well. I did build small fillets along the edges after glueing on with epoxy/wood flour. I onl...

Mike,

Your reinforcements are fine. I also have a lift seat on both the mid and forward seats, and I only used 1 X 2's across the top of the frames. Boat is very strong and stiff, and I've had her in some really rough conditions too.

Have fun,

Make sure you can still get the tank out after the cleats for the seat tops are installed. Clamp them on first to try it out!!!

Good Luck - You will like this boat!!
