Never trust advice from someone who does not have a few bags of wood flour around the shop!

There are times that a belt sander with 32 grit can be like an artist brush.

Got the transom cut down and sealed cutout with epoxy and painted it.

Will be in the water in the morning, to see how this 2.5 cutout works.

Weather looks good. Wish it was a bit cooler!

This FS14 is really a pretty boat. Basic, but so capable of so many uses. I'm glad I started on this design first.

Bob,

Looking forward to the report on your new boat test this morning. She is a very pretty boat.

Regards

Looks like Sunday will run the SandPiper.

Weather not good. Maybe this SandPiper?

I was hoping to run SandPiper this Thanksgiving with the new OB/transom setup. Too weak and still feeling the shingles bitting inside of me. So, maybe next month all will be well.

Will see about building the strongback for the LM18 this coming week.
