Re: Who is coming and where?

WE have RV spots #31-36 blocked out in the name of Glen-L Boatbuilders. There is a couple still vacant, not reserved.
If they are not yet reserved Sept. 1 they get released to the general public.

Re: What should I have on board a small power boat?

I don't know where you are boating, but, emergencies in your locale would take precedence for me. example: I am in south Georgia, and water & shade is very high on the list of emergency supplies. When it is 100degrees outside, and sun is reflecting off the water, and your motor crapped out, the VHF,...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I did not draw a wire diagram for my boat, and I wish I did. Admittingly it is a rats nest of wires. Over the years as a technician/mechanic, I noticed there was one particular manufacturer that had wire diagrams that stood out as easy to read. They always brought power into a diagram page on the le...

Re: Modern Hard Top? Any body build one yet

there are Glen-L plans for the Dory cabins, I think it is a set of 5 cabins.
Modern? I dunno, but I bet you can get joinery details, window openings, doors, etc., off those plans and adjust as required

Re: FOOD for G-15

Quite some time ago, I did mention bringing back the Friday Low Country boil.
I now have the Poker Run,
However, if I can recruit some assistance with prep on the boil, I can still swing that.
If I had a sous-chef volunteer, I could do this.

Is this why Inboards are pigs ??

I suppose we all have seen it or heard about it, the boat yards that convert inboard powered boats to outboard. Bertrams, Blackfins, you name it, all the boats that originally had inboards installed from factory. They strip out all the inboard hardware, install a transom bracket, then hang big twin ...

Re: Anyone have schematic for 8-pin square plug (engine) ?

Some success this morning. Compression check is good, this has been sitting dry and abandoned for 15 or 20 years. With the wire connector color codes and a little test light, I was able to wake up the engine ECM and get a self test and the code 12 on the blinking light. code 12 being a passing grade...
