Re: New guy from Michigan

Welcome aboard!! Get those plans and start building. Perfect time of the year to get going. Plenty of help and inspiration on the Glen L website (not to mention building materials and hardware) and forum.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

I had issues at times with the Raptor staples jamming. Mostly I think it was because I may not have been square in the surface and not holding the head down tight enough. Sometimes I think it just may be a harder spot in the wood. Mostly the stapler is a Godsend. I like to set them a little proud an...

Re: Stuck throttle on my Zip!

Could be several things, Andy. Check under the hood and make sure all the engine connections are OK and not out of order. I would disconnect the throttle cable from its lever on the motor and try operating the controller with it disconnected. If it works then try operating the lever on the motor to ...

Re: 1955 Chris Craft Continental Windshield

I will tell you it is probably worth a LOT!! I'm going to forward this to a friend I know deals in parts and he may know a fair price and possibly a buyer.

Re: question re finish

The best way to a flat finish would have been to make sure the sub structure was flat, or level, to begin with and limiting the sanding of the veneer and deck boards to just breaking the crown to the radius of the deck crown or other area. Power sanding generally creates digs and ruts in the surface...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Look's really nice, Mike!! Your pictures are great as they show how the fairing flows along the hull framing, giving new builders a great idea how it is properly done. Good Job!!

Re: Zip

There isn't a lot to show on that floor timber and it is quite small. It is shown on the pattern sheet. I have attached a picture of my Zip construction on that pattern sheet. You can see the setpoint (top surface) of the timber as it is laid out on the Frame 5-1/2 pattern and the attaching fastener...

Re: Zip

The floor timber is part of the frame drawing and should be taken off of that. I don't think there is a separate drawing for the floor timber, like the stem or breasthook. I no longer have the plans, so I can't check. I'm sure someone currently, or recently building one, can chime in.
