Hello Glen-L community!

My name is Anthony, I'm a new member embarking on my first Glen-L build this year.
I've been lurking around the forums for a few years but this is my first time formally joining and posting.

I want to say thank you in advance to all of you for being an inspiring and supportive community. From all the posts and threads I've read in the past I know that all of you make the Glen-L forum a great place to be.

Regards,
Anthony

Hi Barry, thanks for the welcoming.

I have decided to start with the Squirt, it seems to be a common choice for a first boat and I should be able to complete the build in my single car garage.

Hi Jim, thanks for the welcome!

Your squirt build thread was actually one of the first sources of information that I found online, and it certainly influenced my boat choice. Your detailed posts & pictures helped to clear a lot of the confusion I had, so thank you for all the inspiration and help you've already given!

I hope to start a similar build thread to document my progress soon.

Welcome Anthony and I completely agree that the folks on this Forum are amazing! Glad you're part of our group and building the Squirt. It continues to be the top seller in terms of plans, for sure! Enjoy your build.
