Re: Who's Going and Where

I talked to my prof, and she's fine with me missing a day of class. Still haven't decided if I'm going to miss work Saturday or not. But I do have Thursday and Friday to get up to HB. I guess now is the time when I have to figure out where I'm going to stay. Teardrop trailer hasn't been on the road ...

Re: Food

Bill, I have a 37qt ARB fridge/freezer that can be used if needed. Even if I can't make it to this one, I could make a trip to B'ham and drop if off with you. Bill J. There was barely any cell reception when I went there a couple years ago. Have an old verizon phone that can normally pick up where a...

Re: Who's Going and Where

Hey all! I'm going to try and get there this year, but it's going to be iffy. Started grad school this fall, with a Friday mid-morning classes, and I may have to work the AU/LSU game on Sat. So it'll depend on how the prof feels about missing a day and if the new crew at work are up to handling the ...

Re: Who's Going and Where

I'm still wanting to come. But I don't know yet if I'll make it. Although, since I haven't even started the work on a boat, there won't be anything to show.

Re: G-11 Gathering 9/14-17/2017

Cyberguy, I attended the last one having only purchased the Zip plans. I don't think I've met a more welcoming group of people. Took a lot of pictures, got a lot of ideas, and met more than a few new friends.

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

Bill,
I was finally able to finish reading all 85 pages last night. I think it's even more impressive now that I know what went into it, and very glad that I got to see it at the Gathering.

Re: New member from Alabama

Thanks guys! That means a lot after seeing your work. I've got another few projects in the works before the Zip, but that gives me plenty of time to study the book and plans to get it straight in my head before I start making sawdust. rleete, they're fiberglassed. I haven't gotten out a scale, but I...

Re: How did you find Glen-L?

A boss recommended that I look at the site. He knew that I was looking to build something. But I'd already gotten a couple books, and when I looked at plans here, I didn't see a strip canoe 15' or less. My landlord wouldn't let me take out the kitchen wall, so I set it aside. I'd finished the first ...

Re: New member from Alabama

Right, so I mentioned that I had built a couple canoes at the Gathering. Figured I should post them, and this seemed like a good enough thread. They're by no means perfect, but I enjoyed making them, and learned a lot while doing so. Plus, it was good practice for the Zip, right? (Please tell me yes...

Re: G-11

Looks like a weekend I won't be needed next year!

I don't think a year is nearly enough for me to get my act together, but maybe, just maybe, I can fake it enough. :lol:

Re: G-10

It was great meeting everyone. Hopefully i can have something small to show off next time. I have a few pictures, will try to upload some tomorrow.

For those not there, the cell reception is pretty bad, that's a lot of why there's not been many updates.

Re: G-10 Lunch Run

Brian If the Bartender is ready you have a ride! I owe you that! Bill Thanks! But I considered that more as giving me some slack when I inevitably goof and have dumb questions. :lol: Something along the lines of "Managed to install the outboard motor upside down, will it still work?"
