Halyard Block Question? New Sailor!

IMG_1874.jpg
Would this work for a halyard block rather than cutting a slot through the mast? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Happy Boatbuilding!

Re: Filling screw holes, fillets and cracks in Plywood

I used west system products on my glen l 15. There's all types of additives you can buy. I also saved the powder from the belt sander too. That works good for thickening. The fairing filler is great for sanding. Try out a few things. Definatley a learning curve for me.
Good Luck!

IMG_1654.jpg IMG_1654.jpg Hi everyone, I'm getting close on my Glen l 15. Im going to learn how to sail on a relatively small lake. I was thinking of oars as my auxiliary power to begin with.

Wooden Mast for Glen L 15

IMG_1654.jpg IMG_1589.JPG Hey everyone, I found some old fir beams that were nice and straight, I milled one up. I was thinking of using it for the mast. It would be laminated and plain sawn. There are a few knots. There tight tho, and I feel they might not chip when using the planer. I wanted to u...

Varnishing over epoxy top decking

Im nearing the stage of finishing the decking and trim work on my Glen L 15. I was thinking epoxy then varnish. Is the epoxy nessecary? I thought just varnishing would be easier to get a really smooth finish. My only concern is the spill out of the epoxy when gluing trim work would show through. So ...

Re: Glen-L Sails Question

Is it possible to get the sails from Glen L with no Logos? Im going to see what the local sailmaking place will charge for the sails bu...

Re: Glen-L Sails Question

Im going to get a name plate made, I was thinking a small piece of stainless steel then inscribe the Glen l name as the design, my name as builder and the year built. To be honest, I don't particularly want any logo's on the sail. Just my preference. Can I buy the Glen L sails for the Glen l 15 with...
