A new HOWTO for the FS12 "Boat in box" kit is available. http://boatbuildercentral.com/howto/boa ... /index.php

Methods used are of interest to all.

Great idea. Generally looks good but lots of broken links to photographs and some of the text/grammar could use some touch ups.

This will be perfect for newbies with all the inevitable questions, just send here. It would have helped me before I started my boat.

I am aware of the missing photos - there are some file naming issues. And I will go through and fix the texts (the author shall remain anonymous - let's just say he has been around Jacques' grammar for quite a while...).

Work in progress, more coming.

Just had a chance to read through this great learning tool. Like Lucky said everyone should read before starting there boat.

Lots = 4?

One missing image
Three strangely named making them show or not as the page was loaded.

Grammar soon.

On my browser with my internet connection, there were at least a dozen red-X icons. Happens sometimes in eBay too when there's a lot of images on a page. Looks fine this morning, everybody is there.

This is great, but I want to build the FL12 or 14. Can we get something like this for the FL skiffs? Or does one already exist?

Yes, we have CNC kits for both of those boats.

If you mean a step by step tutorial, see our "Stitch and Glue 101", it is based on the FL12.
FL14 is built exactly the same way.
All our boats use the same techniques, differences in assembly are minor.
