Yes, the Torpedo is alive and well on the Forum and in the Glen L catalog. Besides Billy's link, it is in the online catalog in the "Inboard" section. The entire building process is in my thread called "Roberta's Torpedo" in the Power Boat section of the Forum conveniently pinned to the top.

Is yours the only one out there Roberta? Would be cool to see other examples get built and of course, yours is the example to measure up to!

I know more plans have been sold and one or two people have indicated they were interested in building one, but I have yet to see any progress. I would like to see more. The design has a lot of possibilities to make the boat your very own, like I did.

I agree, another Torpedo would be great. Roberta's build is definitely the go to thread for this.
