Re: New Member from Georgia

And it has spritely performance. I call it the little British sports car of the lake. (I once joked around about painting my Zip British Racing Green with a yellow stripe up the middle so that it would look like a Lotus. LOL) The plans call for a 40hp motor and these are not all that expensive. In f...

Re: New Member from TN.

You and your boat will be MORE than welcome at any Gathering. I look forward to seeing it because we have yet to have any aluminum builds arrive.

Re: New Member from TN.

Welcome to the forum, Russell. There are a lot of Glen-L folks here in Tennessee as well as from all over the Southern US. I'm curious about how you will use your Chinook when you've completed it. I ask because anytime I go out on a river here in our neck of the woods, I'm always amazed at all the p...

Re: Why have we never discussed Boat Shoes?

Vibram Five Fingers - accept no substitute! I've seen those among the students at the university. I always thought they were funny looking but they were popular enough that I just knew there had to be some very cool redeeming quality. Hmmm. Maybe I should try them. I think they'd probably look cool...

Re: Klondike Build

One thing that I feel I must say is that I really admire how you have stayed with this project and kept it moving forward. If I am figuring this correctly, you have some 6 or 7 years in it now. Am I right? I watched a program about a year back about a company in China that was building a trawler yac...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Beautifully done, Skip! Your sense of style is a perfect compliment to your craftsmanship. That grab bar in the aft cockpit is a nice touch too- Nick I completely agree! I have expanded all five photos on these past two pages and studied them at length. I have now finally decided how I want to do t...

Why have we never discussed Boat Shoes?

I'm curious as to why there are so many boating enthusiasts here but no one has ever said anything about the foot wear that we employ while we're boating. Do most Glen-L forum members simply wear their normal street wear on their boats? I'm curious because, when I attend the Gatherings, I usually am...

Re: KIDS BUILD A BOAT EVENT

Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky would both be so proud. In the photo of you and the three month old holding the drill, it's really difficult to see which one of you guys is the bigger child! LOL :lol: And I really love how intense the faces of these girls are that are assembling the motors. I think tha...

Re: KIDS BUILD A BOAT EVENT

I am currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Education. In one class right now, we are studying the psychology of education. We’ve been discussing the various theories of child development – primarily those theories from Piaget and Vygotsky. Both of these early twentieth century researchers re...

Re: KIDS BUILD A BOAT EVENT

All the kids that build with us most likely can not build a boat on their own, but the leave thinking they can! And we Glen-L forum members KNOW they can! I hear a lot of kids asking Mom and Dad when the can build a their own boat. Thinking I have a lot of parents upset with me! None that matter! I...

Re: Riviera powered by v12 jaguar

I found the lake on Google Maps. It is long and narrow. It really does look remote which makes it my kind of lake. We certainly don't have many like that here anymore.

Re: KIDS BUILD A BOAT EVENT

I suppose the boats are only shown on the trailers as it may be a little chilly to have them in the water. Well, there is THAT! But they may not have bilge pumps that can keep up either... you know... seeing as how they are antiques. LOL (Just a friendly jab at those classic boat guys that poo poo ...

Re: Thicker ply?

The Tubby Tug is a very common project. Several regular posters will very likely see this thread and chime in - Bill Edmundson for one. He's built a Tubby and Kevin Brown has too. (Bull Dog Boater) But it's my feeling that, given that the design is a stitch and glue, I would pay the price for BS1088...
