Re: Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop build

After removing the Amine blush with a scotch-brite pad and dish soap+water (which worked well) I sanded to 80 Grit on 1/2 of the hull with my Bosch ROS20VS sander to give the fiberglass + epoxy something to bite into. The use of a respirator was required and the cloud of epoxy dust hung thick in the...

Re: Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop build

So I am slacking a tad....I just took off the amine blush following the epoxy encapsulation after 4.5 months!!! Eager to get her fiberglassed now!

Attached are the pictures of the pair of Appalachia ladderback chairs that I just finished which took a front seat to the boat build...

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

That's a good first project; looks good. I am an Engineer as well (Electrical) and love woodworking. One observation I noticed (hope you don't mind the nit pick) that the finish looks like it's not taking where your glue joints are. I think you may have had some glue squeeze out that did not get ful...

Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop build

Hi All, I thought I would share some (small :D )progress with you on my Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop. You may recall from my new member introduction that I bought it from a friend who had completed the planking but it was un-faired. It took a whole lot of sanding and epoxy to get her faired! and she ...

Re: Taking over a 1/2 completed Glen-L 17 Overnighter Sloop

Thanks for the advice @vupilot. Fairing took a lot longer than expected and I finally have rolled on the epoxy encapsulation coat.

I am starting a new thread for my boat build in the sailboat section. I have some questions in the new post that hopefully you can help answer.

Thanks!

Taking over a 1/2 completed Glen-L 17 Overnighter Sloop

Hi all, I just picked up a ~1/2 completed Glen-L 17 Overnighter Sloop; see the attached picture. She is to the point that all hull planking is installed and is ready for fairing the plywood. I look forward to completing her and showing everyone the completed project but before that I will probably n...
