Beautiful work and well thought out.

Your going to have yourself a NICE boat.

You might have to do a little transom work but I bet about two or three of those 10hp would be perfect. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't know about instructions, but there are pictures of chase tubes in the builder galleries.

Hello Bushmaster I'm also building the FS17. Slowly that is. Still fairing the hull and looking forward to rolling. I thought of two possible problems. Did you see page 9 in the building notes? it specifies the side of each frame to measure the 36" spacing. Also the motorwell side measure of 22 1/2"...
