Super Spook's FS18 Build

Post by Super Spook »

Hey guys. I finally started cutting ply today, so I figured that it's about time that I post the address for the blog that I've started.

http://flatsstalker18.blogspot.com/

I know nothing about blogs, so you'll have to bear with me. Start at the bottom and work your way up to follow the posts in chronological order. Anyway, let me know what you think of the website and the build.

Great site. Glad to see another builder making some progress. It looks like we'll be at similar stages. The cutting process does indeed take longer than expected. I've finally finished cutting 99% of the parts. I'll laminate the transom, build the jig, & join the panels this week if the weather warms a bit.

Not sure why :doh: That link works on every computer I've tried it on. It is sometimes a little slow to load, but it always seems to work.

Scott, Can you get to?:

If so, do a search for flatsstalker18. The blog should show up via that route.

Like I said, I know nothing about websites, so I didn't realize that linking to a picture on another website steals their bandwidth. I wouldn't have done it if I had known. As far as using pictures of their boat to "promote" the FS18, they need to get over themselves :roll: . They certainly aren't the keenest of business minds working over there. I won't bad mouth them online or on my website, but they've managed to convince me that it is worth my time and effort to tell everyone I run across in person to avoid the company at all costs. Nice job Weak.C.C :wink: . You really hit a home run on this one :oops: .

Excuse me... it's not even worth recongnizing them.

Nice work so far Super Spook. Keep it up. That's a model I can't wait to see on the water- even though we don't really have any need for it up here, it's still a cool concept and I'm sure it's perfect for your area.
