a 12' runabout
BINGO! You're a winner in this classy runabout where the driver is it! And why not? You sit in a luxurious "throne" slightly forward of passengers for a clear view over the long, lean cowl-deck. And you're in command of a sleek, fast, crowd-appealing runabout. The sweeping deck lines with rounded cowl-like foredeck and raised, arced, aft deck impresses viewers that this boat is something special... and it is! The 12 degree vee bottom cushions the ride, while built-in spray deflector/lift strakes stabilize and provide a level, dry ride. The BINGO provides performance, and is a joy to see and be in.
BINGO is built by the GLEN-L, FAST-G, Stitch and Glue building method for simplicity and light weight. Constructed from standard 1/4" x 4' x 8' plywood, with patterns provided for almost every contoured part-it's hard to go wrong. Transfer the pattern contours to the wood, cut out, Fold And Stitch, Then Glue (FAST-G), and BINGO!, the boat is formed. An excellent first boatbuilding project for almost anyone.
COMPLETE PLANS include FULL SIZE PATTERNS (more than 25) for side/bottom planking, butt blocks, aft side, aft bottom, breasthook, bow piece, transom knee, 5 deck beams, side decking, aft deck, and half section patterns for foredeck, transom, and form, dashboard, and 5 different patterns for seat assembly. Also included are large-scale drawings, instructions, Bill ofMaterials, Fastening and Laminate Schedule, GLEN-L STITCH-N-GLUE manual, and BINGO pictorial with more than 30 captioned photos of building the prototype.
