Jim,

Where are you at? I am in South Milwaukee. I built an FL14 several years ago (actually for sale now) and would love to watch your progress, and/or lend a hand.
I have considered building this boat, but I just bought a 30 something year old Sea Ray to keep me occupied until I build again.

Jim,

There is no email icon on your post. You can email me though and I will get back to you. I work in Mequon, so it's probably not too far from you.

See Ya

Ross

Well guys the first weekend went pretty good. We have the strong back done and molds A thru E installed. Also cut transom and clamping board and glued them. Will try to cut and glue stringers this week. Laying out the pieces on ply was easyer than I thought it would be. Will try to start gallery soon.

Once you cut the first couple, it moves very quick.
