Thanks all, great being an old fart now!

Just a note on this build, don't know how the round chine looks compared to the graphic. Not much freeboard to keep the sharks away, or gators!

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

Wow CaptUB you are ambitious!

OQ, I could use a form fitting tarp like that too. Early on it was a pain in the but to keep the water from pooling and sinking my tarp into the boat. I've got it figured out now.
