Re: Building Frankenstein-Biscayne 18/Barrelback/Malahini

Hello, This is my first posting and I must say that I'm a little hesitant to be bringing up this subject. I've been milling around the Glen-l site for quite a while now and have finally gotten up the nerve to maybe try to build a boat. As with most big purchases, I am terrified to make a mistake be...

Re: Newbie with questions

Newbie with questions

So I have been looking around here and Glen L for a while and have decided to build a plywood boat of my own. While I like the Zip, flying saucer and the Ski Tow from Glen L, I also like the PM38 and the Playboy as well as certain design features from other boats. I guess that is the reason most DIY...
