New member from Iowa

Hello, my name is Eric Locke. I am building the Bonanza. This is my second Glen L boat. I built the Duck Boat Too about 20 years ago. I started the Bonanza a couple years ago and am getting ready to epoxy the outside.

Bought the Bonanza plans in July of 2016, had the frames built by that December and making slow process as time permits. Lots of fun with help from the kids. Hoping to be ready to flip her over in the spring.

Welcome! Someday, your kids will be building something. Someone will ask, "Where did you learn to do that?". I don't know. I just see how things work.

My dad wasn't handy. Our neighbor would take us to his farm. We built a cabin, drove tractors and bulldozers, rebuilt engines, bird hunted, cut wood,... I thank Big Jeff for many of the things I've used all my life.

Your kids are learning things that they will have the rest of their lives.

Cool! They must be other Glen-L folks in Iowa... I'm guessing around Des Moines or Lake Okoboji. Would enjoy visiting your build if you're open to gawkers..

Pretty rare these days but I'd make a special trip just to get some tips... :)
