After dealing with a direct hit from Hurricane Harvey and it's aftermath...we were really looking forward to an escape and to show all of you are Glen-L Minuet "Spirit of Jessica"! Leaving Rockport today, our RV blew an oil line as we were leaving town, and with very few b...

Re: A great way to start the day...!

Our Minuet really does fit the bill for us. Our goal was to build the biggest boat we could that allowed us to stay aboard but still allowed us to park her in the garage at the end of the weekend! Bigger would only mean the boat would have to stay outside or at a storage facility. This keeps the boa...

Re: Raising Sail on "Spirit of Jessica"

And an update..... An 11 mile sail, 3 days aboard and a wonderful first event for "Spirit of Jessica" this past weekend! Clear Lake to Baytown, TX. We never thought we could make such a "splash" with a 15' boat at a Big Boat party, but.... DSCN2915.JPG they even created the award for "Most Flags per...

Re: Minuet gets her tail feathers wet for the first time!

Thanks for the kind words. Kathy's grandkids live up in Leander, so we do plan to bring her to Austin. In fact, we scrounged the mast, mainsail and trailer all from your area.

Now if you could do somethin' about the level of that lake....! 8)

See launchings tab for an update, too.

Re: Minuet gets her tail feathers wet for the first time!

The comment about wrinkles in your duct tape and the thread about "I hate sanding"! ...and you guys are the first two to respond. Perfect!!!! :) And Bill, Kathy AND Jessica both say Thank You!

Minuet gets her tail feathers wet for the first time!

Kathy and I have been working very hard to get our Minuet "Spirit of Jessica" ready for an upcoming event that we have been using as a goal for completion. Then a Jimmy Buffett concert appeared and we took her to Frisco, TX (Dallas) over the weekend basically to use as an RV to stay in for the show....

Re: Howdy from Katy, Texas!

Thanks for the compliments. It's been a very fun project. It is tough having the "big" boat on the west coast, but I hope to change that following the completion of our Minuet. (one project at a time!) It's been fun reading the posts from all the Aussies. Kathy and I have a bit of a connection as we...

Howdy from Katy, Texas!

I feel like I'm finally getting out of the '80's. Just figured out how to put a blog together, and now I am finally taking the time to say hi and bring our project out of the closet! Kathy and I started slowly on our Minuet last year, but we are pickin' up steam and getting close to bottom paint and...
