Greetings all. I'm Andy and I just signed up. Retired from the Coast Guard after 23 years of service and now work at Tiara Yachts in Holland, Michigan. Living in Hudsonville, Michigan. Just trying to gather information now as I don't have a clue where to begin!

Welcome to the Glen-L forum! You started at the right spot. Everyone here can be of help, so ask any questions you have and explore the many projects here, you are bound to find something. Thank you for your service in the USCG. Funny, I was just standing at my office window, checking out the Coast Guard academy up the river and wondering where the EAGLE is right now.

Welcome!

Nice town, Hudsonville, and good ice cream!

Buy a copy of "Boatbuilding with Plywood" it will be your guide no matter what boat you build.

Hey Andy,

Welcome. Great to have another Michigan boatbuilder join the forum. With you and the Huizenga's as recent new members, Hudsonville is turning into the hotbed for builders.
