FS19 in Washington State

Post by cazuza »

The wife and I finished the strong back today. Epoxy kit is here except for one box due tomorrow. The CNC kit is somewhere between here and Vero Beach FLA. Here's some pics of the finished strong back.

Wrong side up

Took five tries to figure out the picture thingy.

I'm not sure why it didn't cooperate for you. :doh:

I think you are the first person to start a FS-19 build thread, can't wait to see it come together!

What is the advantage of boxing in your strong back? I have seen some do it. I plan on building mine before my kit arrives. It would be nice to be on casters, but my building area slopes slightly.

I saw from CL thread that he uses it as a table to assemble the long pieces.

Yes, for lay out, cutting and splicing table. You will need one almost as long as the boat. Unless you have the space for both a lay out table and a strong back individually. I don't, so one has to do double duty.

I'm also looking forward to seeing a FS19 build. I really like that design.

I have enough room to layout most everything in the A/C portion of my shop. I wish the entire GP21 would fit, it will, but I would have to demo brick walls to get it out...

Looking forward to this build. Like Larry said you can do all the cutting, gluing and assembly on that strong back.

I will be keeping a close eye on this build. I am sure there will be lots of others doing like wise. I am glad somebody started one and can't wait to see how it all works out.

Very curious to see how this build goes. What bodies of water are you planning on using it on? I'm located in Seattle and have decided on a FS19 for the Sound and San Juans. Will hopefully get started this winter.

I live in Bothell so I'd imagine we would use the same areas. On thing I'm struggling with is I haven't seen many center console boats around here, you're more likely to find cuddy cabins to get out of the rain.
