Re: Carolina Angler Build

That is basically it...on the flyer...the center was left open for drains...and conduits...the rest of the compartments I filled with expanding foam. ...

Re: Carolina Angler Build

I truly believe that is exactly what it was designed to do.. Do the math...put as much flotation foam as possible under the deck...I would take it out in 6footers..and not have a care in the world. ...

Re: Carolina Angler Build

This was on a short list ...for my second build... As the wife and I packed up...to sell the house we called home for many years...found 3 plans I have bought from Glen-L...one dates back to 1984... I still like the lines of the Carolina Angler...would be a blast off shore and a great coastal boat.....

Back to the batten notches...the side of the notch closest to the keel is tight ...and the side of the notch on the g...
