Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

The Amp Eater plans have arrived. I am anxious to get started. I guess I will have to begin by cleaning out the barn.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

I took the first step toward building the amp eater by ordering the plans. I should have them next week. I decided on the amp eater because it seemed like a simple build compared to others and something I could likely finish in time for next summer. Also the Amp Eater would fill 90% of our local boa...

Re: Big Thank You for a great event

My wife and I both want to thank all who made this event great. We made many new friends and received a lot of encouragement for building a boat of our own. We appreciate the many kindnesses we received, the great food and warm welcome. We plan to return next year, hopefully with boat in tow. I gues...

Re: 2014 Gathering-Friday Boating

At which restaurant are you planning to have lunch on Friday? I hope to get into Chattanooga about noon and may be able to meet folks there.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

After buying the electric boat videos and showing them to the family, son, daughter, their spouses and grand children, it was decided that I should build the Lo Voltage instead of the Amp Eater so that there would be room for a couple of them and the grandsons to come along from time to time. (grand...

Re: Gathering 2014 (G8) Name Tags - ATTENDEES PLEASE READ

Ray,
This is a wonderful thing you are doing. Name tags will certainly help us to get to know people.
My wife and I will be making the trip to Nick-A-Jack and staying with relatives in Chattanooga.

Re: Who's Coming?

My wife Melissa and I will be making the trip. It is a familiar drive for us from the Columbus Ohio area as we have many relatives in the Chattanooga area. We are planning to build a Lo Voltage electric launch and wanted to get a chance to talk with others who have built boats from Glen-L and see th...

Solar powered Amp Eater

I am considering building the amp-eater electric boat as my first ever boat build project. I would like to include about 300-400 watts of solar panels to a top to charge the batteries. I thought the 13 foot amp eater would be a project that would give me some boat building experience as well as expe...

New Member from Columbus Ohio

I am considering building the amp-eater electric boat as my first ever boat build project. In the future I would like to build something more elaborate, perhaps a Bo-jest design that would incorporate a inboard electric motor with solar power to charge the batteries. I thought the 13 foot amp eater ...
