    I started on a project a few days ago, I'm building this for my lady and on a tight budget. Vinyl ester resin, core cell foam, and no paid labor ( actually only my labor). This is only the second boat that I've built in a mold, I've done half a dozen one-offs.

    Thank you.
    I built the mold to my own design which I've used for four previous builds (the design not the mold) that were one-offs,24',32',and 36'. When four years old, I stretched the 36' to 40'. I refer to this one as being a 26' but its overall length is 26' 10 1/2" with a beam of 7 feet and my plan is to add a 4 foot "pod" that will extend the planing surface 2 feet and provide a 2 foot setback for an outboard.
    I've attached a few scanned photos, the top right ( I'm standing in the water at the bow), with built in this mold also.

    Overhauling

    Something that fell into my hands over a year ago... a white water skiff with a jet engine. Totally unpractical thinghy, well maybe not if you wanted to irritate people around but... Anyway cut of the jet and everything inside. Scrathing my head and feeling like Leepu in the Chop Shop cutting and screwing material around it.. Anyway had some free time during the last weeks and found some warm space (free!) where to work so got it allmost done. Something minor like hatches, handrail etc still missing..

    Nice to see all these projects ! Our build has been listed in your Boat Design Directory for some time now. Thought I'd provide you with an update !

    We launched our 17' Glen-L Hot Rod v-drive ski boat at the Glen-L Boatbuilder Gathering in Guntersville, Alabama, October 23-25 2009. We didn't have enough time to finish up the deck, upholstery and paint, but that didn't prevent us from having a System Test run.

    Here's a photo of Gayle Brantuk, VP Glen-L Marine Designs at the helm :

    The link below will take you to build photos as well as Gathering 2009 photo albums and Glen-L boat videos.
