Glen-L 14

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Glen-L 14

Post by gclay » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:52 am


I'm new to the board and new to boat building. I'm going to be ordering the Glen-L 14 Sloop plans and will start construction within the next couple of months. I will be purchasing the Boatbuilding With Plywood book as well. My main question is what hardware will be needed, as in Cleats, Cams, stuff like that. My wife and kids want to pick some stuff out so they have part of them in the build. This will be the first build. I hope to go on to build a 17 footer in a few years time. I bought the plans for a Hartley TS14 a few years ago but it just never seemed right. I thought about minuet but I'm not a fan of bowsprits. They just seem like a major point of failure. Anyways any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

It's great to hear you plan to build the Glen-L 14. That's a really nice sailboat and I think you'll be very happy with it. As RR says, we do have kits for the hardware and rigging as well as fastenings and fiberglass covering. Dwyer Mast is an excellent source for aluminum masts

Here's a link to our kits:

Thank you for choosing Glen-L and welcome to our Forum!
