That's how I did my FS14. It left a 6" fabric overlap on the transom and that took some time to fair, if I was going to do it again, I may eliminate the overlap on the transom, maybe leave a small gap instead to make the fairing a bit easier. If i was going to do it over again, I would probbaly not spend nearly the amount of time I I did fairing the bottom/keel, I would be happy to live with the tape lines on the keel/bottom for the amount of work it took given the attention it will get, which is about none.


There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

What are people's opinions on the position that the grab rail is mounted? I have seen some where the 45 degree support bars are toward the bow, and some that are mounted toward the stern. I like the look of it when it is mounted toward the stern, as it allows an ice chest to be set in front of it, facing forward. However, I worry that the support bars might be in the way and potentially cause a tripping hazard while driving. Any thoughts?

I made some progress this weekend by getting the hull glassed. I will add another coat or two of epoxy to fill in the weave, but overall I am very happy with how it turned out. I've added some photos to my album that can be seen by clicking the link.
