FS14 Low Sheer Tampa Bay

Post by peejay1023 »

Hi Guys,

I started the build of the FS14 low sheer about 5 weeks ago. I have made every mistake possible but I am enjoying it! this is my first build so I am going the cheap way on the mats. I know the boat wont last as long but I am really building this one to fish off of and learn on before building a bigger one. This design looks like it will be perfect for fishing around upper Tampa Bay and I cant wait to get it on the water... that's still a few weeks out.


I posted the pictures to my gallery but I how the heck do I post them here?!

PeeJay;

Thanks for starting this build thread, this is a boat I am very interested in building as well. Please keep the pics coming as well as any lessons learned so I can hopefully keep learning.
