Gayle

Thanks for adding the MAS product line. Along with the reduced sensitivity, with the slow hardener, it has no amine blush.

Gayle,

So glad to see Glen-L getting into the Stand Up Paddle Board craze. Also, I cant tell you how excited I am for your partnership with MAS epoxy. I just loved their epoxy for its very low amine blushing but bought what you guys sell because I wanted to support you, so glad we can have the best of both worlds now!

Keep up the fantastic work!!!

Gayle.
I enjoyed your interview with Dan and recollections of the start of Glen-L. Your comment about your Dad designing for plywood brought to mind an old magazine I now possess that my Dad had in his workshop. It is a magazine called "How to build 20 boats" and the copyright is 1940. There is an editorial about using plywood and how it is now accepted for boat building.

I took a picture of page and included it here. You should be able to zoom in and read it.

Very cool!
Although I think they were exaggerating a bit about the plywood being "rotproof". :wink:

Thanks Bob--that is really great. I also posted it on our Facebook page. What an amazing benefit plywood was in so many ways. My dad and I often talk about all of the changes in his lifetime from 1918 until the present. He's seen so much...

Thanks for doing that video Gayle, very interesting. I'm enjoying the building of my Stu's SUP. Decking is going on now.

If I am correct, there will be no further additions to the achived galleries then?
I found these quite useful during my build.
