Glen-L Boats in Racing

Post by v-driver » Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:50 pm

I'm always looking for inboard racing activity, especially where Glen-L Tornado or Rampage models are concerned. For any that may be
interested, here are a couple of photos for the proposed, APBA-sanctioned, "SE" racing class. The SE-class rules are being designed to
allow modest-budget, small block motors, only. Trick parts and monstrously costly engines are out. Those are for the SK- and K-class
boats! If you're interested in the proposed SE rules, look here:

Anyway, here's a Glen-L Tornado that is reportedly getting ready for the SE-class; owned and driven by Rob Kaufman from Salem, OH.
I think we've heard from him on the forum.

Rob began racing E-class Runabout in 1958. My guess is that he's in his late-60's now! This boat was built in 1974. Way to go, Rob! The
SK marking is changed to SE in the last picture. Look for the Glen-L logo!

Looks like fun.

Very interesting. I been yearning for that V8 growl in a boat. Maybe I could build a class boat and have fun with it.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
