Hello Everyone! Especially those in Cold SE Michigan!

Postby Dennish » Fri Nov 24, 2017 5:41 am

I have had an interest for awhile now to build a small wooden boat and stumbled onto the "Zip". Looks like a nice boat for a first time builder. I have built 3 experimental airplanes and want to try something new. This group looks like it would be a great resource!

I'm located in Chelsea, Michigan just west of Ann Arbor and would like to come visit some of you guys that are in the area to see your project and talk about your build.

I'm semi retired so my scheduled is flexible. I look forward to meet you.

Thanks
Dennis Hall

Hi Dennis,

Welcome aboard. The Zip is a great project for a first time builder. It can be done simply or all dressed up like a Chris Craft and anywhere in between. There are many threads showing the construction and different decorating ideas. I am sure there are builders near you willing to share their knowledge both on and off the forum.

Welcome. Lots of builders in the area. You're welcome to check out my Squirt, but it is in storage for the winter.

Hi Dennis,

There are a few pilots and Glen L builders in your area. If you have wings and want to fly down to EYE or 2R2 to have a look at mine you are welcome to. I have lots of photos of my build online as well.

Hi Dennis!

Welcome to the unofficial Michigan chapter of the Glen-L club. It's great to see more and more Michiganders joining the fun!

The club dues are very affordable too. Just lots of build pics :D
