a 10' tunnel hull
TUNNEL MITE is a compact replica of those exciting competition racing boats cleaning up the "silverware" on the world's racing circuit. The high speed hull rides as if on rails due to the twin, full length sponsons. The air cushion effect between the twin hulls makes for a smooth ride, besides cutting down on resistance, so high speeds are possible with low horsepower motors.
Building and driving the TUNNEL MITE is great fun for all members of the family. The lightweight and compact hull is easy to carry, whether it be on the car roof, in the family van, or in a pickup truck. The rakish appearance enhances the illusion of speed, but this boat is plenty safe, even for the younger set, when operated on protected waters and powered as recommended.
Construction is simple and straight forward. No building form or jig is required, and the plans with patterns, or Frame Kit, leave nothing to chance. So for fun and thrills, start building your own TUNNEL MITE today.
"I am very happy with the way it turned out; it gets lots of looks and questions from people wherever I take it. Many will ask where I bought it and I always respond that it is a Glen-L design that I built using your plans. The blue prints and instructions were fairly easy to follow; I only had a couple questions and after a phone call to Barry, they were quickly answered. "
"If any of you are thinking about building a boat, do it, the self satisfaction and attention it gets is well worth it. " Donnie Gilliland, Red Wing, MN--Tunnel Mite builder
