Seems odd that the cnc cuts would be off like that :doh:

Two are the same, it's the one with cutouts for the stringers/knees that is different. Also, The two do not have the same curve on the top as the one.

No problem, thats what routers are for.. cleanup!
Plus a jackplate is going on the transom.

Too true on the router!
I certainly enjoy following along with your builds Capt!
If we could get some warm weather I might be able to get back to my GF16.

Ok, got things going... Back on track, no more silly shit!!!

YOU DO NOT PUT A ROUTER BIT ON YOUR BATTERY POWDERED DRILL AND EXPECT IT TO NOT F#!÷K UP THINGS!!!

Frames/molds at stations with stringers in place. Need to cleanup frames and stringers before adding hull panels.

Very exciting to see you start your LM18!! It looks like it will fit under the carport but do you have room to work on it? The Sand Piper looks so forgotten in the background. :cry:

I bought a flat bottom boat cover from Academy to cover the hull of the FS14 up when we went to Chicago and brought it back. I got the one with all the straps and it held up great. At times my spare driver was hitting 80MPH while I was trying to sleep. Point is you can tighten the straps down enough for the water to roll off it if it rains with no pooling. It was somewhere around < $70.00 :doh: I think


This is what I ordered from Amazon, MSC Heavy Duty 600D Marine Grade Polyester Canvas Trailerable Waterproof Boat Cover. Model B - Length:14'-16' Beam width: up to 90" (Fit V-hull runabouts (outboards and I/O) and aluminum bass boats with beam width to 90”) This heavy duty boat cover designed for both long-term storage, mooring and highway travel.

Should be here on the 21 of Jan.

Wow! That should last you a long time. With it being canvas keep it sprayed down with a UV protectant if it will be exposed to UV a lot.
