possible Glen L Tornado

Post by Nova SS » Sat Jan 05, 2013 6:48 pm

found this on facebook. Looks like a tornado with a slight modified deck. Reguardless its a beauty of a boat. There is another pic of it that clearly shows the frames and battens on the inside of the hull. So its definately a woody. cheers.

It has the same general lines, for certain. It may be a trick of light refraction in the water, but it appears to me to have some vee in the bottom at the transom, judging by the apparent angle of the cavitation plates to each other. If this is so, it is either modified on the bottom, as well, or is not a Tornado. That design has only about 2 degrees of vee at the transom - virtually invisible without a straight-edge.

In any case this is a really sharp boat... a blend of nostalgia from two eras in boating.

well if it does have a V then I would suspect its a Rampage with a modified deck. I'll find the pic of the inside. I'm pretty sure it was a flat but I've been wrong before...just ask my ex's

Paul, I think you are right that it has a V here is a pic of the inside and the frames look too V'd to me to be from a Tornado especially that far back in the hull. They are pretty flat back there in a tornado. This one must be a Rampage. Good eye.

I guess that settles the question. I love to see these Glen-L designs wherever and whatever they are! Thanks for sharing the pics, Nova.
