Thats just way too cool! Thanks for sharing. I bet you have created a tradition that you will need to uphold, as they get bigger. The boats will need to be bigger, you know. :lol:

Thanks Guys,

I really enjoyed building these two small boats. I really learned alot from them, but I couldn't have done them without the help from the folks on this forum. I have said it before and I will say it once more. If anyone is considering building a Glen-L design the first thing you need to do is join this forum. The second thing you need to do if you have any doubts is to build one of their smaller designs. But, then again you could do what most of the grown ups on here do and jump in feet first. :D I just like to start small and take my time. Maybe when I finally get out of diapers I will build a real boat. :wink: :lol:

Great video and the memories, oh the memories, you will have.

I "hear" why you put the duck inlay on the kidrow. :D

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.
