Thank you all for your words. I remember during my build and would imagine what it would be like to get to this point. It EXCEEDS what I thought.

We had quite a gathering yesterday for the christening. Attached is a video I took early yesterday on a solo ride at idle... :D

Gorgeous boat! Congratulations on winning the Jamestown Photo contest too! I shared that on the Glen-L Facebook page this morning. If you have any other photos you'd like to add to your Gallery on our site, that would be wonderful. We could also grab them from here if you prefer. Just let me know...

Thanks Gayle. Will post some photos this week.

I mentioned to my wife last week I was trying to decide what design would be be next. Not exactly what I was planning but this is how I spent this past weekend. Guess I'm in the remodeling business for a while now. :D

That's how much space my wife thinks we'll have in the new boat. :roll:

Unfortunately I wont be able to make the trip. That's quite a haul from CA and don't have the time available. I will plan a trip to come one of these years. Would love to see all the builds and share some stories with you guys. Thanks Butch.

Spending some days in Carnelian Bay Lake Tahoe. Five years since launch and all great. LOTS of classic runabouts here and we get a lot of great compliments. Ken did a great job on the Barrel back design!

Put on the swim platform a couple of years ago. Despite pleas previously to not step on guards, I had to repair twice from people climbing back into boat. Now I just have to worry about them grabbing the flag pole :shock: !
