The FS 14 is the largest of the FS line of all purpose skiffs. It is a great open water boat as well as a tender and utility boat. It will plane with a 10 hp motor, making the FS 14 a great fish stalker, and crab getter. It is a fun boat that can be used by the whole family.

Still small enough to be car topped with two people or for the most utility, tow it with a small boat trailer (now available from CSB Please call or E-mail for Info) so it can be ready to go whenever your are.

It will take you about 90 hrs of easy and fun work to build the FS 14. Plus the time it takes to round up materials. Build the FS 14 if for no other reason than to add some class to the gaggle of tin skiffs that now clot up all of the good fishing holes.
