Excellent video Fergal. Jimmy Buffett is always a good choice when you're going nautical. BTW, my mother in-law and father in-law have both kissed the Blarney Stone. My oldest daughter may have also kissed the Blarney Stone. I know she has a diploma from Guiness for pouring the "perfect pint". She a...

Welcome to the group. If you lurk around here long enough you will be ordering plans and clogging up your garage for 12-48 months. Since you are talking about some restoration, you may want to check out what Retroman has done with boats he bought. He lives somewhere on Long Island and built a Glen-L...
Wow Roberta, seeing that really makes we want to just do something totally stupid...like build another boat :shock: I bought a set of the old style plans that were on sale a few months ago. I don't even remember which boat it was other than the fact that it is an inboard. On second thought, my garag...

I agree with Bill. It will be VERY uncomfortable and you'll be VERY wet. As a Malahini owner, I would be afraid in the ocean if it were me.
Roberta, you are making crazy progress on this thing. I can't wait to see it flipped and see that shape start to show itself. I am a little confused though about the planking. Is this a cold molded hull, plywood or a hybrid? I was expecting to see lots of little diagonal planks. I went to the plan p...

I experienced the same thing with my Malahini. I have an E-Tec 90. I knew it was going to be a bit heavy in the rear and I placed the fuel tank in the bow area but left the battery in the rear. It still rearranged most of my internal organs on weekend afternoons when the water was a little rough. La...

I've never seen it done, but I have seen some crazy things here. There is a guy who separated the top from the bottom of a boat and is bonding it to a Glen-L design. I can't remember which half he is using (I think the bottom), but I'm pretty sure it was a Century boat. So, I'm sure you could probab...
I have a marine Pyle amplified system (no stereo or head unit) with a 3.5mm input. I use my phone and stream Pandora or whatever music is on my phone. Bill makes a good point: Make sure you get one with an auxiliary in jack so you can plug in your ipod, phone, etc. Since there are not too many stat...

Good luck to you Brad. Keep the updates coming. BTW, I am very close to Suwanee and have bought lumber from them before. I have some plans around here for another boat, but I don't know if I'll ever get to it. What lakes are you near?
