Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

It is. I bought a trailer for it last year to move from Orlando to Panama City. But it sits too high to work in side the hull so I'll move it back to the build cradle when I'm ready to start.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Sure Kelly, now you offer after the hot & sweaty work is done :lol:

Only thing left is the siding, which I should get a good start on this weekend.

Here's an update (doesn't show the facia/soffit installed.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Should start putting siding up on the boathouse this weekend, and at my rate of progress, it might take a month to finish. Then it's back to the FF build. And I think you'll probably finish firsts at my pace :D

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Conrad, Never thought about it. This is my first real effort building a project of this size and wanted to be cautious, so I only extended it per the plan recommendations. At 19'-9", it should be plenty for my needs, maybe a little more than needed, but you can never have enough boat. Going out...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Another update on the boat house. Wish I didn't travel so much with work, but that's how the bills get paid.

It is crap plywood and saves me from breaking my neck when stepping over the frames !!


Interesting choice of plywood to use while working on the head :D

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Hey Kelly - All good down here. Was really just a rain event in here in Panama City with a nice breeze. You all probably got more than we did.

Thanks for checking on us!

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Can't wait to hear how a 115 works on her. That's what I'm planning to put on the back of mine. I have a Yamaha 115 4-stroke on the back of my deck boat and it's super dependable and can push me around with ease. I had 9 adults in it over at Homosassa Spring and though I couldn't get her on plane, s...

Re: Hi new from Alabama

We're just off of 231 on the north side of town. I'll send you a PM with my cell number, give me a call if you have an opportunity to meet. We have a deck boat and could even meet you on the water somewhere, weather permitting. It's been raining a lot down here, hope it stays dry to get some "w...

Had to get the new house in order first, now I'm building a dedicated wood shop, probably going to call it the ...
