FS17 Lake Norman, NC

Post by Brianh44094 » Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:47 pm

This was my first boat build and I'm glad I made the decision to give it a try. With traveling for work and having our first child, I was able to finally finish it in about 3.5 years. Thrilled the process is over and we get to enjoy it now! It was worth all of the effort and frustration.

Agree with JM that is a really nice looking build.
I see lots of custom features. Tell us a little more about the boat. What is the story with that fancy sole?
