Re: Trolling motor powered Amp Eater?

Hey Hogwild, is that your lovely Amp Eater posted yesterday on the Glen-L facebook page?
Nice job. The ETM (electric trolling motor) mount looks great. How does it perform? I like your steering console.

Re: Where to buy boat insurance?

I have Hagerty Marine Insurance for my Amp Eater. I told them it was from glen-l plans, they asked to see some construction photos of which I have plenty, and in three days the underwriters approved the policy. It was pretty easy.

Looks like you need to build another boat. I hear sanding is great exercise...
Sounds like a plan to me...

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Here we are at the Charles Mill Lake boat launch. The Aquatron is taking on important passengers. We cruised around the 1300 acre lake 2-1/2 times in the course of 4 hours logging nearly 20 miles. It reached 91 degrees but cruising at 5.2 mph gave sufficient breeze. (the fat guy with the wide brimme...

Re: Bo-Jest

Yea! I like the book rack idea. If I am ever allowed to build a Bo-jest it's going to have a book rack too!

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

I will have all the touch ups below the water line done. Scraping bottom is the price I pay for being adventurous. (I think that perhaps is the reason for the oak shoe on the skeg)
I wanted to get the boat in the water anyway - It's been over 6 months on dry land.

Re: Trolling motor powered Amp Eater?

Hogwild,

Congratulations on your AmpEater build. If you get a chance, post a couple of pics of your Ampeater and motor setup. There are quite a few who would be interested in seeing it.

Re: Chugalug's BoJest

Yes, The Waterlodge would be much easier and probably quicker to build. Has any one ever built one? I cant' find any pictures.

Re: Chugalug's BoJest

Chug,

It's looking good. Watching your progress has kept the Bo-jest near the top of the list of my next boat to build.
Getting your HIN# means the splash date is close at hand!

Re: G-12 Gathering 2018 Dates and Location

Mike,
The shirt design looks great!

Melissa and I Just booked a floating cabin (#6) and look forward to seeing everyone in September. We plan to arrive Thurs afternoon and will stay thru Monday a.m.
It is in the mid 70's today and is making me anxious to get the amp eater out and ready to go.
