Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

I found that even with the tapered countersink bit I would still strip the head when driving into white oak. Once I found some stainless screws to drive in first then replace with the bronze I had no issues. Fortunately I did all of the experimentation on some scrap wood so I was able to work throug...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

After what's felt like a whirlwind of a year we had a baby boy on Oct 26th. With the new addition to the family I had some time off and finally got myself caught up around the house between time spent figuring out the little guy, he's our first so there's been quite the learning curve there. No pict...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Wow sorry guys, I missed a couple of replies here. I haven't made any real progress on the boat unless you consider finishing up everything for the baby room and getting the house ready as boat progress. Our baby is due any day now and with that I'm looking forward to the new challenges that accompa...

Re: Glen L 13 build photos

Just wanted to say thanks for posting up some pics. I'm (slowly) working on a Glen L 14 over here. I've got frames ready to get put together but things got put on hold for me for a bit. Seeing your pics provides some motivation to get moving again!

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

So it's been quite a bit of time since my last update here. Work has stopped on the boat but for good reason, my wife and I found out we have our first child on the way. Things have been on hold while I work on prep around the house and I simply haven't had time to really make any progress. I do mis...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Well it's been a while since my last post, I've been slowly making some progress I started sanding the frames down and am getting ready to assemble my first frame. Things have slowed considerably in order to get our bathroom remodeled, it needed to be fully gutted and the contractors have been here ...

Re: Vloging My Build

I will throw another yes in there.. I like the Amigo design and was looking at it as a potential next build. In general I find it enjoyable watching these boats come together whether through pics or video.

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

That makes sense I left space on the plywood sheet to add an extra inch or two around the sides and back. I will cut it that way to be safe and then trim/plane down as necessary to get the proper shape afterward. Made it about halfway through cutting out the 3/4 inch ply pieces no pictures yet as it...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Hey all, Quick question on my transom. On the plans the outer and inner edge of the transom are shown. I often see on the forum that you should add an inch or two around the sides and bottom of the transom to account for the bevel. It appears as though this was done in the plans already. Should I ad...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Stuart, I have every intention of buying an old Stanley hand plane, I've just been searching ebay and the like for one that comes in at the right price. From all the research I've done and what's been said here I understand setup and sharpening is key. In the short term I've borrowed my dad's belt s...

Re: Zip Walkaround

Bringing back an older thread... Nice looking boat Andy, also thanks for the video. How do you like the fold away coupler/trailer stem? I didn't know something like that existed and may be the difference for being able to actually store my (eventual) boat in the garage. Long way off from that but ni...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Milhouse and Hoodman, thank you for the input, I will be sure to check out those tools and keep my search going for a hand plane. Unfortunately I am not loaded so I won't be looking at festool anytime soon. I've got a big enough budget to complete the boat in a reasonable period of time, and in gene...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

hoodman, after some more research I see what you mean. Sanders are new to me, everything I've sanded prior to this I will have done by hand. Sanding this thing by hand would be a nightmare. The reason I was looking at belt sanders and what they can offer is to shape the curve on the ID of the frame ...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Milhouse, That is exactly what happened, I didn't notice until I tried to stain. I attempted to clean it up with some sanding but I didn't have anything to get into the corner really well. I don't mind at all constructive criticism is what makes us better. I was overall happy with the finish but wil...

Re: New Member From Windsor, Connecticut

Welcome to the forum. How is the boat show down in Mystic? I tried to convince the wife to go down last year but was unsuccessful. I've only just gotten started with building boats and had absolutely no experience going into it. So far it's been a blast and the community here is great. Looking forwa...
