Hello Jerry,

You've done a VERY nice job. The boat looks great! The antique outboard is neat too.

Re: Tom's FS14

Thanks Tom. If I ever get some time, I 'll drag my cargo trailer down your way and BUY some cypress lumber from you.

Re: Tom's FS14

Hello Tom, Well, you obviously know what your doing. I didn't notice the pic I was referring to was the bow...oops :oops: As usual, my advise is off-topic and not much use. My boat must have 'settled' some in the past month cuz I had to push reallllly hard to get it to glide off the trailer. So, I r...

Re: Tom's FS14

Looking good Tom. Could you lower your bunks to let the rollers come into contact with the keel? I can see at least an inch of room to lower the bunks in the "missed" photo...or, will that conflict with the wheel fenders? I don't mean to be a SmartA**, but I believe the bow eye should be r...

Re: Tom's FS14

Hello Tom, That locking block is elegant! I may make one from wood too. It'll float so be harder to loose. Could you use a thumbscrew? Using a wrench will be unhandy. I might drill a recessed hole in the side of the block and epoxy a nut in there rather than tape threads. Your wood version definitel...

Hello Cameron,

VERY nice boat! The colors are great and that's a SERIOUS bollard on the bow.

Re: Master Marine 28' stringer question

Hello Doug, That is a neat boat you are restoring. I would not have a clue where to get started on a project so big but your pictures help show this is a MASSIVE project. Having recently finished my little FS14 project I have a basic understanding of glassing, fillets, tabs, etc but your project is ...
