Re: Hi guys i need some help

Hi, Your plans should have come with a basic set of instructions. These are pretty brief, so most builders get a copy of "Boatbuilding with Plywood" by Glen L Witt, or "The New Cold-Molded Boadbuilding". Both of these are available on the Glen L website, Amazon, or other book sellers. These should g...

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

Hi Curt, Glad you made it out of Detroit alive! :D My father used to volunteer at the Henry Ford so we've spent a lot of time there. It is a nice museum and they do a good job to bring in special events. But seriously, our paths must have crossed. I had my family up at Port Huron on Saturday to watc...

Re: dry time for lumber

I'm not an expert on this, but there are many posts and guidelines for air drying wood online. A quick search says 4/4 lumber may take about a 1/2 year or more to be properly dried. Before you use Ash, read this thread here: https://www.glen-l.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1766 . It does not sound like...

I'm learning a lot about the Great Loop and the Erie canal from your blog. Keep it up and safe journeys!

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

Looiking good.

Make sure you have full range of motion on your gear shifter. I tried to keep mine tight to the lever, and have had a few issues with getting in gear and slipping.

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

Hi Ed,

I'm glad you got it in the water. The MI SOS office is why I started that registration thread, every time you go into an office you get a different answer.

Looks like a nice lake, and we definitely need a Michigan gathering.

Enjoy!

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Other than the "pucker" moment, I'm glad you are finally in the water.

We should have a critical mass for a Michigan gathering by now!
