She is basically finished. All that is left is the rubrail (which we have bought, just need to go on).

The boat is for sale, and we will leave her in this finished, but not rigged state for whomever is the next owner.

Im very happy how the boat turned out. Here are some new photos, there are many more in the gallery. This is the link to the gallery:

Very nice work Joel. Excellant tutorial too! I don't think she'll sit for sale very long!

Fanstatic job Joel.

I was wondering if you have that Kiwi stuff available for sale? I'm thinking of using it on the FS14.

I also was wondering if you there are any gunnel mounted rod holders on the rig?

There is not enough cockpit depth to have more than one on each side, I put on on the port side - it would good for a deck brush.

Joel,

Flush mount gunwale rodholders, not under gunwale racks? You're probably leaving that personal decision to the lucky fisherman who steals this boat from you, right?
