Really want to build a FS17 or an OB17 in the future
I may still have some of the forms from my FS17 in the workshop. Might be useful if you decide to do the FS17.

made the front storage area smaller, giving me a much larger sole

It is on the SK14 plans and notes: we propose to end the deck at one frame or another depending on the deck choice, long or short.
The sole is always the same length and goes ll the way to that forward frame.

I really like that the instructions came with both options. And I love that the sole goes all the way to the first frame either way. It allowed me to see which option I liked better. At first I thought I wanted the larger storage area so I went with that set of instructions. After I made it I realized I'm only going to keep a small anchor in there so I shortened it up luckily the sole was still full length so I was able to change my mind. :D

That was the idea: with the long sole, you can choose the short or long deck without any other modification plus, I had enough plywood left on the nesting and wanted to show a use for it.

I see what looks like a butt block on the side panel - did just butting the panels with fiberglass added just on the inside not hold well enough?
