D5, May 2020, Parkrat

Post by Parkrat »

Well, finally finished the D5 except for misc items and paint. We have been using it a lot and stayed out Monday night. Ran around a few islands on it. That little Suzuki 2.5hp just sips gas. We will most likely paint it this winter and use it the rest of the summer. It tows very well behind the boat. Guess we are officially a boat builder :D We are starting work on the FS17 again. Here are some pics:

Yes, very good looking little boat.
