Looks great Ken!

I gotta question, is that the live well drain on the starboard
side about where the trailer wheel is or scupper :doh:

What that boat is really gonna need is one of those remote
trolling motors so if your fishing alone you can ease along
with the trolling motor down up in the tower 8)

Ken,

Absolutely beautiful. Great job. When you get that prop on, and get it wet, please give us all a performance report.

Thanks,

Bill

It is professional custom boat building. Ken is taking orders but as I told him, he is too cheap. He should charge more for such quality work.

Ken is going to semi retire for a little while when this boat is done. have let to many things go at the house. Need to pressure wash my house and garage. never did finish painting my garage. It looks like world war three in the garage. Gonna take me a month just to get it back in order.
custom building is a lot of work. I think the next one I do will be built as is and sell as is. I am seriously thinking of selling my Ph16(Sport'N A Woody). The next one will be for me. Either the GF 16 modified to my likeing or FS18. Still kickin around trhe idea of a seadoo jet drive in the Gf16. ??? Time will tell. Meanwhile am rigging the steering and shifters. Have some minor paint work to wet sand and do a small spot in. Caulk the undersides of the rubrails with black silicone and Mike can take it home and finish the wireing. Not gonna miss this beast. Lots of work for doing it part time. has been a year and a month now. :)
