Fancy Free

Hello to the builder enthusiast here. I have been studying another set of plans and have come up with a question for ones who may have built the Fancy Free. It states that you can use up to a 4 hp motor on the craft, which is sitting in a enclosed well, that has a trap door. I would like to hear abo...

Re: Spinner Sails

Doug, thanks for the info. I grew up on a lake and sailed a home built Sailfish, from boys life dating back to 1962, and I still have the plans for that. I also sailed in regattas with a friend on his 14' Pintail. So I have experience in sailing, a number of styles of craft to include catamarans. I ...

Re: Spinner Sails

Thank you for the response.

Is there a supplier that you can think of? Or even another manufacturer of sails that has a craft similar to either of these two designs? If I could find a craft similar within the specs could your designs be modified to handle a spinnaker?

Spinner Sails

I am looking a couple of small sailboats from Glen-L, the 15 and the 17. And I was wondering if there is a spinner available for either one of these designs? And do the designs have plans or specs outlining a spinner to include the hardware needed. Second question. Is there a roller jib for either o...

Re: New to boat building

Getting closer, just ordered a set of study plans for the Glen-L 17. That should allow me to get a good start and what the process is going to be. Looking forward to receiving the study guide.

Re: New to boat building

Thank you for the input on the subjects. I will have to talk more to my brother about the solar arrays. He was planning on putting one on his 1978 Vega which is in the process of being restored at his home port. Which is going to be his retirement home.

Re: New to boat building

Looking at the online catalog, it appears that there are no study plans for the Glen-L 15. A few questions that come to mind. Are the plans close to the Glen-L 17 minus the cabin of course? It is still a toss up on which one. I was thinking of starting with the study plans first and go from there. D...

New to boat building

Hello. My name is Eric and I have always had a dream to build my own small sailing craft. Looking at either a Glen-L 15 or a 17. I also do not want to take on more than I can handle. I feel that I am a good carpenter and have a small shop. I have learned the process of building forms from a table of...

Re: Researching boat designs.

I am located in the Southern Tier of New York. If there is anyone in the area who is in the process of building a small craft. I would like to possibly see your work and bounce some ideas off you. Thank you

Researching boat designs.

Hello. I am looking at sailboat designs and have a toss up between the Glen- L 15 and Glen-L 17. I consider myself a good carpenter and have a small shop set up in a single car garage. But the car wins over for the space. Ultimate is a craft with a cabin. But I also need to take into consideration a...
