Nice sexy profile!
That bucket, do you move it back a little and use it as a seat when using the motor? It maybe me and my age but not a big fan of standing all the time on a boat.
You know I am still undecided on where to mount the bucket, cooler or tank for seating but I have all three and plan to use each and weigh the pros and cons of each. Maybe once I get more seat time I will make some decisions.

Really well done Frank!! Jeff
Thanks Jeff, I was actually just looking at my PY12 plans and thinking about tackling it next... More to come from Japan I guess before I get back to Virginia next summer.

Great build Frank, I really like the color choice. I am currently stationed at Little Creek and take my SK14 out quite a bit. It is a great craft for lynnhaven and Rudee inlets. Be prepared for lots of questions at the boat ramps, cheers.

My brother in law is stationed at Virginia Beach. Just made Chief 2 years ago. Nephew is out on a ship right now from Seattle (? I think). He's trying to make Chief. My boss is a retired Master Chief.

SK14 looks good Frank. Showed a couple friends of mine the battery pack system you made from the Pelican case. They like that idea as they go out 4wheelin to Colorado a couple times a year.

Yea I keep comparing about three bigger boats and cant make up my mind on the next big build. I like the FS19, PG22 0r 25 and AB23. Will see what our place looks in VA before tackling anything big.
