Re: New member in Ontario

Ah the Chrome Toasters (aka Cylons). Welcome to Glen-L, and I am sure with the willingness to recut from time to time and the determination to see it through you will be able to make a boat you will be proud of and have a lot of fun in the process. I never built a house (yet), and only had fairly cr...

Re: Andy's Zip build

Andy you are being a bit hard on yourself. Your build is looking good, and 1/8" clearance is better than -1/8" clearance and having to dig it out with a chisel (no, I am not going to tell you where I did that). The inspiring part comes when you start adding the hardware bling to the top surface. All...

Re: New from Texas

Hi and welcome! There are two parts to remember when looking at building your first boat: a) The process is a big part of the pleasure. Owning it will certainly be fun, but building it has its own kind of insane, mind-consuming addictive pleasure that is hard to describe, but everyone here that has ...

Re: Thoughts on build strategy, and the choices we make...

There are quite a few things I can thank the Glen-L community for helping me with at the start of my project: a) They gave me good advice to build bigger than I originally planned, I was looking at a 14' Tuff and ended up building a 16' Malahini. That extra 2' in length plus a good 1' in width has a...

Re: Oliver IV in dry dock

Out of curiousity, how difficult was it to sand off the original epoxy? Did you have to take much of the material off or did it not soak in all that deep? I put glass on my sides and got some boat-dock damage this summer that is frustrating me to no end. I suspect I'll have to sand it down to the ou...

Re: New Member Altamonte Springs, Fl.

Hello and welcome, sounds like you'll fit right in here on Glen-L. I am excited to see what you end up doing on your Riviera, because it sounds like you already have some 'skills'.

Re: Cost-reduced home made submarine.

Now that is a neat idea. I only done the scuba thing at a pool for a few minutes as part of a resort thingy... something I've always wanted to do but is not very practical in land-locked Alberta, where our lakes are green or muddy with no visibility and nothing to see anyway's!

Tada! Nothing like having your boat's name plastered on her nice behind!

Great job on her.

Re: Sawford's Zip Build

Those air bubbles caught me as well, much more than I would have liked. No sure if there was a better way to prevent their formation, I ended up sanding, refilling the pockets and then re-sanding again. It was a slow process but cleaned up rather well.

Re: Oliver IV in dry dock

My raw Sapelle lumber that I have laying in some sunlight in the garage has gone a bit more silver, but that sands off easily, almost like oxidization. The finished, epoxied + clear coated sapelle and meranty ply dropped a shade, but nothing dramatic. More like 'deepening' the color rather than a he...
