Re: Trolling motor powered Amp Eater?

That is probably the most powerful and best 12 v trolling motor available. Will develop nearly 1 hp.
Stephen did a nice job on his build. It appears to scoot right along. I am anxious to see how yours will do as well.

Don't show that cat to my wife. If we had another cat 3-4 feet long there won't be enough room in the bed for all of us and our couch is not that comfortable!

Re: Hull Identification Number

In Ohio, you have to make an appointment to take home made boats to a Dept of Natural resources Watercraft officer to be inspected. They want to see reciepts and other proof such as photos that you built it yourself. They measured the length of the boat, verified type of hull and material of constru...

Re: Food

Melissa and I would be happy to make bacon and scrambled eggs one morning. I'm not sure which day is best. We are coming in on Thursday afternoon.
We will also have a crock pot full of meatballs for Saturday.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Thanks Joe. I appreciate the compliment. The credit goes to Glen L Whit for the beautiful lines he gave this boat and for the easy to follow instructions. The simple elegance of this design is what kept me coming back to the amp eater as my first choice to build. If there is anyone out there who is ...

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Stephen,
Thanks for the detail on building your top. I hope to tackle that later this summer.
Did you paint the PVC blue or did you get it that way? Your Deck really turned out nice.
It appears you have removable hatch covers. Do you have some kind of latch to hold them down?

Re: Trolling motor powered Amp Eater?

Hey Hogwild, is that your lovely Amp Eater posted yesterday on the Glen-L facebook page?
Nice job. The ETM (electric trolling motor) mount looks great. How does it perform? I like your steering console.

Re: Where to buy boat insurance?

I have Hagerty Marine Insurance for my Amp Eater. I told them it was from glen-l plans, they asked to see some construction photos of which I have plenty, and in three days the underwriters approved the policy. It was pretty easy.
