Re: Geronimo in the making

Perfect - that is what we are hoping to use for the frame. We wanted to use Okoume for the plywood but not too sure on it durability for ocean. However, we will not be leaving in water after use.

Re: Geronimo in the making

Any recommendations on which wood is best for the ocean? We have received a lot of varying opinions, but want to be sure before purchasing! We do like mahogany.

Geronimo in the making

We have just received our Glen-L boat plans for the Geronimo and looking to begin constructing end of year! We have started our research and cutting out 'frame templates', just to begin practicing, as we have never built anything of this sort. Should be fun. We are from the small little island in th...

We decided to go with the Geronimo after further research. Just bought the plans and will review from there. Thanks!

Re: Malahini - 16' outboard - plan modifications

Thank you for your feedback.

Are there any boats with a similar build that we can browse on this website for saltwater use? Or any others you would recommend. We only have access to saltwater ocean.

Re: Malahini from MD

After two months of boat quarantine, she's back from the boat yard with the engine attached. I've now installed the seats, plumbed in the bilge pump, and put a name on her. A couple of things are still left - I have to finish the side panels and also make a cover - aside from that I'm waiting for t...

Malahini - 16' outboard - plan modifications

Good evening,

I am interested in building this boat from scratch, but have a few questions to get my thoughts started:
1. Are these plans/materials suitable for saltwater ocean?
2. Can the plans be modified to extend the boat to approx. 18' or + 10-15%?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Z
