FS-18 - "Bare Bones"

Post by Aripeka Angler »

Allright guys, I've been mostly goofing off for the last 7-8 years :roll:
I have to rectify that by building a boat :)
I ordered the plywood right here today for an FS-18.
Side bar, I'm going to finish the dang plyak while I'm building this boat :wink: :roll:
I'll post up some pictures when Bateau gets me something to work with...lol :lol:

AA, thank you for your purchase!!! The FS18 is a great skinny water fishing boat and based on your boat building experience, your build will be one to follow and learn!!!! Jeff
