Howdy

I've been lurking and checking out the boats for a while and wishing I could get started.

Unfortunately, I may be moving interstate in the coming months and so I'm trying to be patient and learn as much as I can before beginning the building voyage.

So many beautiful boats - it's difficult to settle on a favourite. The gentry with room for four would be great and I'm a little surprised something has been offered by glen l considering the interest there's been on the board. Do new designs come up often?

Welcome! Neel Thompson's Gentry has a front "Rumble Seat" and allows up to four people.

Signor

Welcome. Where are you located? We have several builders down there and they would be glad to talk to you.

Neel does have beautiful Gentry. I think he did the 10% stretch to make room for the front cockpit.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'll bring up my questions I the appropriate section rather than expand here.

I'd love to see a few Glen-L designs in person - so I'll keep my ears open.

For the time being though I'm trying to keep my enthusiasm in check.

Tasmania. There's a few things that need to fall into place but after we are settled I'm thinking I'll be starting on a barrelback
