Hi everyone, I got plans for a Glen L 10 sailboat for Christmas. I always wanted a sailboat and love a project. This should be fun! I already have many questions which I hope will be answered reading through the forums.

Welcome Jeff. You've come to the right place. Ask away.

Welcome Jeff,
Nice to see another Michigan builder.
Just started myself, going to Charlotte tomorrow to buy some wood.
This is a great place to get all the help you will ever need to build your boat.

YES look at LL Johnson, in Charlotte, they have quite a nice selection. http://theworkbench.com/
Just bought all of my African Mahogany Friday for my build. Beautiful boards.
