Great looking boat with a lot of custom work! Really comes out well as a finished product.

And I can sympathize with having a little one around, big impact on project progress.

That is a great looking FS17 and I too think the console and sole add a great look to a great build.
I hope we will see you out on the water.

Man you did a great job building your boat!
This may sound crazy but I met a fellow who came into my central Florida woodworking shop a year ago who had photos of a boat that looked a lot like yours.

Nicest looking FS17 I've ever seen. Wonderful design & work.

Have family up your way. Some in the restaurant business...some in the marine construction/dock business.
