Re: Insurance in California?

Yeah, you can get something that's labeled "marine plywood" at Menards. And if that's all you can find I'm sure it will be fine. However, I would encourage you to try to find something better for your hull. Try to find some Okoume or Meranti marine ply. It is worth the extra money.

Sounds exciting. I hope you succeed. You definitely don't need 300hp as Bill said. Check out the "how fast" page on the Glen-l site.

Re: modified malahini

The manufacturer of products like Froth-pak spray foam will tell you temps need to be above a certain point or you won't get full expansion. I expect if you read the package for your pour in foam it will say somet similar?

Bryan, you can go anywhere on earth with a similar level of detail. Some major cities and airports have been gone over by hand for even more realistic detail. Most areas are procedurally generated from satellite photos.

Re: Exploring Chickamauga Lake

I took a little flight over Chicamauga and Blue Water Resort in MS Flight Simulator. It is a lot flatter there compared to our old digs but still looks like it is a beautiful area.

I'm no expert but I don't think lithium batteries produce explosive gas. If you have to just put in a partition panel.

Re: Glen L 15 weight

The weight listed in the catalog is just for the bare hull. So the completed project is always going to weigh more.
