Re: Guitar builder looking to build a boat

With a 20 keep it light and it will be a fun boat, with 4 people it probably wont get on plane though. Flying Saucer is just a smaller Zip, would be a great option for a 20 as well.

Re: Sanding Grits,,,Finishes,,, Varnishes,,,Paints,,, that Wet Look,,,

Glen had some nice graphics shown in the plan catalog in black and white. I think some of those simple stripes/graphics he did on the sides would look good incorporated on your boat Ken. Although, I never felt your boat needed "more" I liked the simple white with bright finished transom and rail. ht...

Really enjoyed the pic of the E-class hydroplane. My dad ran one of those for a couple seasons.

Re: TNT help needed!!!

The keel is pretty straight, what specifically are you referring to by "bend to the shape of the stern" There is some slight bend up forward by the stem, is that what you are referring to? https://www.glen-l.com/picboards/picboa ... 1048a.html

Re: What did you do with your Glen-L this week?

What did you do with your Glen-L this week?

We sure talk about building boats a lot, how about showing a little more about what we do with our boat on a typical weekend? I'm going through withdraw, for one reason or another I haven't had the boat in the water yet this year. Lets see some motivation. Skiing, tubing, fishing, cruising. What did...

Re: A Dream

So sorry for your loss. What a nice job he has done! It can be tough to find the right person willing to purchase and finish another person's vision. My advice from having bought and sold a few homebuilt boats is to find the right person, the amount will be what it is, knowing it gets to a good home...
