Sorry for stepping on this post..

Tom, the aft deck is built to plan, just a lot more support under it. Also the CnC cutouts were epoxied back in. I'm at Mom's I don't have plans here.

Sorry for stepping on this post..No worries, I like different ideas.

The stern seat frame is 14.75" at the lowest point. If you put the sole on top of the stringers then minus 3 7/8".
Hope this helps.

Thanks, but no. I knew what I was going to do. I will be using a cooler as a seat on the aft deck, when others are on the boat.

Hopefully in a few more weeks II'll be in the water!

I maybe wrong but I thought I read somewhere the on the study plans of the FS14 the DWL is 5", does that sound correct? The stringer height at the stern, very little dead rise, a sole on top the stringer would put the sole below DWL? You look at the drawing in the plans the DWL is even with the stringers. Scuppers will not work? Any wave at all would bring water in them.

There is a FS14 LS with scuppers... I don't have the plans with me on the FS14LS.

I think I will put some open scuffers on the aft deck for drainage...???
What is the thinking on this? If a wave came over your transom the water would drain back out the scuppers?

As far as the FS14LS with big scupper openings on the transom seems every time the boat would come off plane to fast the wake would come in the aft and as the stern is picked up by its wake the bow would pitch downward causing water that entered the scuppers to follow the deck towards the bow. Then as the boat settled back down the water would then drain out the stern. But the deck would be wet. Not something I would desire but in rough seas with water breaking over the bow while headed to port would be nice to have the water drain off the deck out the back.

Open scuppers a few inches above dwl on planing boats?

No thanks. Sounds like a beach party onboard with wet feet unless the word open is a misnomer.
My boat build is here -------->

I was saying on my FS14 aft deck water would sit there. Scuppers online with the deck would give the water a place to drain off the deck when running. The sole/floor drains on my boat aft to the bilge area. I did not want or need a motor well.

My Scouts had sole scuppers just above the working water line, shitty thing to have.... I plugged them. There was a cockpit drain!!

This thread has made me think about the C17 I would like to build... Need to look at drawings again!

Once again, I never had much of a problem with swamping or waves coming over the transom on any of my small boats, sail or power. Now offshore... I went through a few waves...!
