I'm a retired ol guy in southern New Hampshire. I tell people I'm a great fisherman. To that end spent 2 years building up a 14 ft boat from a 1961 Alumicraft hull striped
and fitted with a center console and other neat stuff that only great fishermen understand!

Motivated now in starting another project, I have great interest in GlenL's plans for the Aluminum version Jumbo 15 foot garvey hull. Since there are no study plans available, I'm hoping there is someone out there who kept a photo library of their assembly process.

Can anyone help with PIX or links???

Has anyone near southern NH built one of these boogers and can share do's and don't s???

Thanks -- Joe e (gonna take a nap now)

Welcome aboard!! Did you mean "16 ft. Jimbo" Garvey hull? There are a couple of them built in AL in the customer photo archives. Maybe you could contact the builders for more input. Also, there are other AL builders currently building other boats on the forum. Perhaps they will chime in with info.

Yes, there is only 1 PIX in the gallery posted from Brian Burton's Aluminum build in 2001. There is also a set of 8 for a wooden version.
