Barrelback design

Postby falconer100 » Fri Dec 08, 2017 5:06 pm

I have just come across a website called Clark Craft in NY offering what appear to be exact copies of Hankinson designed boats. Are Glen L associated with them?

It may be something for Gayle to look into, I would hate to think that our favourite boat design company is getting ripped off with their copyrights.

It's very interesting that their mahogany runabouts have the same names as Glen and Ken's designs and some of the photos shown even state "courtesy of Glen-L Marine"........

Well that's cleared the mystery up. I was just concerned that Glen L was losing out with their copyrights.
