John,

Looks good man!!! I say keep using her while the weather is good! I would agree with Jacques, if you can move some weight around to solve the issue that would save you from putting more holes in the transom to add trim tabs. I hope to see this boat at the Builder's Meet in September!!! I don't recall seeing you sign up yet??? :wink: :wink: :wink:

-Reid
ill sign up if you get that fs18 done by then!
I'm working on it! I got all of my inside seams taped yesterday.

Someone asked me, if I were stranded on a desert island what book would I bring... "How to Build a Boat."

Pictures or haters will say it's fake! That's great... Look forward to the stringers. Taping those was the most laborious part of my build.

By the time I finished.... "Just shoot me please", was all I could say....

I'm John's FIL. We were a good ways from you down on the southwest end. We put in at Twin Bridges Landing and were at my sister in-laws house for a family get together.

Yes y’all were a ways away. That’s above where those 1000 ft smoke stacks used to be.

Working on a stand for my 9" ff. Transducer on this thing is huge. Anyone ever mounted to the jackplate. That is one of their installation options but I sure don't understand it.

Good idea. Nice playpen as we now grandparents used to call em. Hope you’re in A/C. I know it’s brutal in middle Ga this week.

How much benefit do you get from glassing that that mounting box? Would cracks at joints develope without it, does it add significant strength? Gonna be a good looking addition.

Just noticed the shotgun. Side by side or single.
