Re: Agenda

If you were only going to go for one day I would suggest Saturday.

Think of the whole event as a laid back picnic on the dock with boats to ride in and talk about. Bring some folding chairs for the dock, some food to share and come relax.

Re: Resize Plans- Squirt

The squirt is so small I cant imagine reducing its size unless you wanted to make a radio controlled model. It may end up so small an adult couldnt operate it but at the designed size an an adult or a child can operate it. Many Glen-L designs may be stretched 10% and many have done so on the Squirt.

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

Another way to look at it is just pull the end of the chine that sticks out past the stem up the stem until there is moderate tension on the chine, It might come up 2" or just till there is tension but not so much it comes unclamped back at the frame. This tension should curve and bend the chin...

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

I think your over thinking it at this point. Its pretty simple seeing your most recent photo. In your last picture I would simply have someone twist that big C clamp just like your hand is on it, push down where your hand is and up on the inside to twist the chine a bit clockwise as viewed from the ...

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

The hump at under the keel at the stem is normal and fine. The dip in the keel toward the back will need to be faired out. You want that 4ft section where your level is to be totally flat with no dips. I like the twist more like your second set of pictures. I found it easier to get that result by fi...

Re: Utility build

Mark Coleman has a bimini on his Utility and it looks pretty good. I too underestimated the sun and sitting on a boat with no shade. A boat with shade be it a bimini or a built-up structure definitely makes boating in the middle of summer more enjoyable. While it doesnt work while underway or if its...
