Still doing some fine tuning getting the right flow in the bait tank labelling switches however I am enjoying the fruits of my labour This fish was really delicious maybe moreso because I caught it on my own A-Lure Be sure to find time to enjoy these boats I kmow I will even if my crew are land lubbers and mostly chum when we go out
Halibut
Caught 3 miles offshore over hard bottom in about 80ft of water

I told my wife we needed a three-car garage for my projects...she told me to ask her for permission next time before I buy a house.

I had a friend along with a lot more experience than I had who thought that I needed ballast I
told him to fill the tank needed about. 100 gals more which would be ballast enough. The
Point is Glen L design is a whole lot lighter than any comparable glass boat
