Believe me, I saw more than one rig in my rear veiw mirrow hit the side of the road in a hurry.. :shock:

I am surprised the smokies did not stop me over those 1300 miles.

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

Great beginning guys, and chillin I see nothing wrong with those contribution. Psycho, I will take a shot of the boat out in the open hopefully tommorrow. That was the local net and working skiff. Bruce those guys are the top of the class when it comes to wooden canoes.

Billy,
I had a few more models to post before I saw your kayak. Now I'm just going to pack up my toys and go home. :( Beautiful work. :D

Billy most of my mess is built for duty with the 20=20 topcoats. :wink: I rarely soil my soles these days anymore over yonder. With my last hull being launched, :wink: and most old coots being gone, its just not worth the battle.

Alright Billy, I have another one for you. Booth Bay Lobster Boat. Be easy on this one. Just as the real ones are work boats, this is a working model.

Now for the rest of you out there. Come on we want some pictures. I would post my boats, but all I have now is a 14' pond boat and an almost 20 year old 24' pontoon that needs a major face lift. If I can post my models surely somebody can post the real thing. :D

This is a little boat I've been working on for over three years; almost ready for the lake.I started this project before I knew about the Glen-L web site but, since have found a lot of valuable info and, a wealth of knowledge. It is made of fiberglass with a mahogany deck.Two more coats of varnish and I can re-install the coming and hardware.

I guess not...I just looked closer, the Flyer has a double ended boat tail stern

close..But it was built from a set of Hacker lines out of 1920 motorboating. I change the bottom to a more modern design. I also scaled it up to 16'6"
I put a mercruiser 233 that I purchased from a guy on this web site. Ford 351/ velvet1:1 /13x13 prop 7 degree shaft anlge. porpoises bad but, I think I can correct it when I get it back into running shape.
