Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Re: The passing of Ken Hankinson

So sad to read this...I wish I had words of wisdom to write. ..
I can only thank him for designing one of the best boat I have ever rode in and built...
This hobby has lost some great men in the last few years..!

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. ... I only have a smart phone. ...and for some reason can not access old pictures. ..or would include one... You can look at Flats Flyer Build in SC.....

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.....
