She was very easy to talk to about anything and he had built a nice working/fishing skiff the last time I remember seeing them at the 2014 Gathering.

I didn't even tape, just spread it in the joints,use a plastic spoon to spread it then as it dries clean the excess off the deck with water and a little solvent. I did not varnish over it. Did the caulk after t...

Hi Dennis,

There are a few pilots and Glen L builders in your area. If you have wings and want to fly down to EYE or 2R2 to have a look at mine you are welcome to. I have lots of photos of my build online as well.
