Re: Glen-L Newsletter & Builder Galleries

We did have a wonderful time but mainly because we were with our grand daughter and her parents. I can't say that John and I will be headed back anytime soon. It's still a whole lot of waiting for a whole lot of money. But, for sure, it's fun to go at least once Bill...

Re: Mast head sheaves and halyards

The sheaves are inserted into the Masthead "C" casting next to each other with a piece of micarta or plastic between. Scroll down to the section on this part in our Spar Instructions: http://www.glen-l.com/designs/sailboat/spar-instructions.html

Yes, that's what I hear and I recently discovered that there's a big car show that same weekend in Reno--Hot August Nights. John and I really hope to make it to both of those one of these years...

Re: Limited supply of classic boat hardware

Not sure, hoodman. There would have to be a lot of demand for them to do that.

Limited supply of classic boat hardware

I just added 3 new items to our site--a 14" "Ultra Streamlined" bow handle, a cleat and a transom vent. I was going through my dad's stuff here at the office and found the oldest Glenwood catalog I've seen. Glenwood Marine is a manufacturer of boat hardware and my dad and Elbert start...

Re: Hi Malcolm from Norfolk (UK)

Malcolm,

Welcome! It will vary--the Barrelback from deck to keel is about 3-1/2 feet (generous), not including the windshield. Seems like at least doubling that to include the trailer might be close. Anyone have an answer?

Re: Cruisette sedan?

mr.james--sorry for the delayed response. You can alter the cabins on many of our designs which I image most do--that's one of the many benefits of building your own boat. The only issue would be keeping the weight distribution similar to the original design to prevent any balance issues.

Re: Questions regarding laminating frames?

Dave,

We don't know of a formula for this. I don't follow your question about changing the width of the bottom frame of #2--we would keep the width as noted.

Re: Glen-L 15 shroud tang location for aluminum mast

Michael, The Glen-L 15 does have spreaders. We recommend that you set the mast up (with spreaders) and then tape the shrouds to the mast and adjust as needed. You can also adjust the chainplates and/or turnbuckles as well. We have a couple of links on installing hardware that may be overkill, but sh...
