Re: G-14 Dates and Location

Just a couple more photos... In the photo of the courtesy dock, if you look at the gap to the left, that is where Island Cove Marina opens onto Harrison Bay. You're basically looking directly across the bay at Harrison Bay State Park. All of this is merely to say... If you wind up having a future Ga...

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

Dylan and I drove up to Harrison Bay today to see what might be available as far as restaurants accessible from the water. The restaurant, Dock Side Cafe, has re-opened at Harrison Bay State Park after the renovation of the building. We actually stopped in for a little snack, and were happy to see t...

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

Perhaps something like this... By the way, did anyone else have trouble with their t-shirts this year? Mine were labelled XL, but very tight. Dylan couldn't even wear his. I've broken them in, to a degree, but these definitely aren't XLs. My guess is, they were mis-labelled Larges. Slim-fit larges, ...

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

On an entirely different note... I did this artwork of a Riva Ariston a while back. I know it's not a Glen-L (neither was the G12 design), but it is a wood boat. If you like it, I can make it into a G14 design. I've been looking for a place to use it. If not, that's cool. I've got some other ideas....

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

There may be other dining options upriver from the dam. I believe there is a Mexican restaurant at Island Cove Marina on Harrison Bay. For that matter, it's called "Island Cove Marina and Resort" so there may be some lodging there, also. (I've only been there once, to the boat ramp & store area). He...

Re: Who's Going and Where

Ken, Brad... sorry y’all won’t be able to make it this year. Regrettably, I won’t be able to catch much of G13 either, as Sofia has a volleyball tournament on this weekend again this year. However, at the moment Dylan and I are at Scottie’s, enjoying the view & waiting on the armada!

Re: G-13 Lunch Run to Chattanooga 9/13/19

I am on the way back from San Antonio at the moment, but hope to see everyone at Scottie’s tomorrow. I will bring the t-shirts there. Dylan has sorted them, and just to let everyone know, the colors are a little different from the mock-up. Apparently the aquamarine color wasn’t available at the time...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Really nice work, Michael. I like the way you did frame 5-1/2 and the stem/keel junction. I really wish I would have asked my dad why the Zip has frames 2, 4 and 5-1/2. Hi Gayle! Thank you! I kind of figured out the frame naming a while back :) Here's the pull-quote from my blog about it: At first ...

Re: Delaying Glen-L 15 build, starting a Zip

Just to clarify about the pictures... I am using a slightly different method to build my transom than the method mentioned in the Glen-L instructions. The instructions call for 1” solid lumber frames mounted to 3/4” plywood, with the notches cut only in the solid lumber. I have 1” solid lumber frame...

Re: Delaying Glen-L 15 build, starting a Zip

As for the outer surfaces of the frames, it is just as easy / simple to make 90 degree cuts and worry about the bevels later, during the fairing process. MY perspective is that it’s more important to make the 12 degree beveled cuts in the batten notches. I did this with a multi-tool, and a wood bloc...

Re: Delaying Glen-L 15 build, starting a Zip

Fundamentally different, and in NO way inferior. If you look at boat construction methods from most 1950’s era runabouts, they were using long-established techniques that were becoming dated. Glen’s designs were cutting edge for their day. As noted... restoration of a classic is an entirely differen...
