I hope you appreciate and I am sure you do the fantastic SK14 LSYou got from Mike. I don't think there is another one out there that has the quality boat that he builds. Good luck with it and the use for it.

Stickystuff, nice to hear from you and I hope you and the wife are well!! Thanks for the note on Mike's FS14 LS!! Yes, I am quite lucky to have it!! I will use it as a sales and marketing boat for a while but I must admit that I can't wait to fish it!! Thank you again, Jeff

Geez! You guys are really putting the pressure on me, and thanks for the nice words. I would probably have started another build if I had a better place to work, but the FS14 was built in my pool screen room, which destroyed the pool deck, because some dumb ass didn't cover the deck well enough, plus I had to cut out a section of screen and get 5 other guys to help maneuver the boat out of the room and out to the front yard onto the trailer. I've thought about doing another FS18, starting in the screen room, and while it's still light enough to carry easily, move it to the driveway. A few other problems are, I can't really afford to build another 18 unless I have a buyer lined up, plus I've got a lot of work going forward that will keep me quite busy for a little while. In addition, I need lots of time to fish. If I do another build soon, it may be the SK14. Small enough for the screen room work shop, less cash going out, and I'm thinking my son might enjoy having his own skiff. I'll make a decision after these two re-model projects I've got are finished. Mike
