Completed FS17

Post by tech_support »

I received pictures of a completed FS17 built in Crystal River area of FL.

Finish is first rate. Paint is sterling, all the supplies came from us. Hopefully the builder will chime in a share more on his build.

ENGINE IS MORE THAN WE RECOMMEND

Very nice looking boat indeed. Needs a T-top maybe. Performance must be good with that much HP.

Thanks for all of the complements. The proof of the build will be this weekend. I hope to have the rub rail installed and the Fl regestration by then. Let's hope the waterline is somewhere below the new rubrail!

I'm also a little concerned about the remaining freeboard aft with the larger engine. I kinda used jgroves FS17 as a mobel. He didnt appear to have any issue with the weight of his Honda. The Yamaha weighs about 32 pounds more. I just hope the 19 gallons of fuel weight in the bow will compensate for it.

KRE,
Certainly a beautiful boat! I think you will be fine with the 60's 32 extra pounds. I like the additions to the motorwell and the bow. Make sure you post some info and PICTURES once you get her on the water! Very exciting time. Congrats.

Pretty boat KRE. Any idea of hull weight. Look forward to your numbers and handling when you get on the water. Since your in CR guess you'll have to bring her to the Meeting in April. :D

Beautiful job KRE! Very nice boat...you should be proud.

I think the part I love best about seeing new boats built is how the builder modifies the boat to his/her particular needs. You don't really see too many identical boats. These FS17's are sure a great example. Jeremy's vs KRE's vs. Steve's high sides vs. Joels low sheer etc.

Again...very nice boat!
