I recently acquired the boat in the attached pictures. Based on the plans your website and measuring the overall length, it appears to be a Missile? The owner reported that he is the second owner, he finding the boat in Vermont (built in Maine in 1960). The engine is a Lincoln 430, prop is 13x15 RH and seems to be a good fit as the engine is turning about 4600 rpm when the boat run flat out. No GPS to confirm top speed, but the acceleration is brisk and the ride very smooth on light chop with no proposing. Turning is very controlled. This classic boat gets lots of attention on the trailer or in the water. I acquired the boat through a trade for an antique car that I was not using, I am planning to use the Glen-L when the weather returns to sunny days on the Central Coast of California.

I showed the photos to Glen and his immediate response was "Missile!" ...brw
