Bernd,
Didn't you start out to build an FS17? Why did you change your mind?
The boat looks great so far!

Mike you are right - first I wanted to build a FS17 then decided to build a easier boat to get practise - the GF16 was my choice.
I also thought about the FS14 as my first building - but the GF6 is it at least.

But don't be sad the plywood for the FS17 is stocked in my friends wood shed.

I ordered 10 sheets of 10mm 10sheets of 6mm and 3 sheets of 12mm.
At the moment 3 sheets of 12mm and 4 sheets of 6mm are used for the GF16.


Believe, once a day you will hear from my FS17 - but not yet.

Bye
Bernd

Bernd,
I am going to have to get busy, or you and Larry will both beat me to getting the new boats in the water. You are doing a great job and just enjoy the experience of building and hanging out with this great group of builders. I have never failed to get a good answer to a question and to get a pat on the back when I needed it.

Keep on Buildin'

...I know, the crew here is really good - the best board I ever visited in the Internet.
For me the best motivation to keep on building - but one step after another step, I don't like to work in hurry....only with a normal speed.

Bye
Bernd
