Hello to all from a land locked builder

Greetings one and all,

I'm Glen and the builder of an Ingrid 38 (double ender) cutter. This is my 2nd 38' sailboat albeit there has been 30 years in between projects. At least sailboat project, during the interim, I've been building composite airplanes such as Longez's and Cozy's. Two and four place airplanes respectively that cruise around 200 MPH.

It's been so long since I've seen the ocean I scaracely remember what it looks like. I did log about 10,000 sea miles way back when, mostly as a single hander. I look forward to getting back to sea once the Ingrid 38 is done and will again be for the most part a single hander. My wife of 41 years does not like airplanes or boats, but loves to shop when I'm gone. I guess we have the best of all worlds.

I hope to find some assistance on the site with things like winch placement and sizing as well as many other things. After 30 years ashore, I'm rusty, but it's not from salt water exposure.

In retirement I do a lot of metal art, and have a complete CNC shop (plasma table, mill and lathe) in my garage. I do my own MIG, TIG and gas welding as well, but I don't weld for others as I'm not a certified welder. Just better than most certified welders.

Greetings, and WELCOME aboard Glen.
Here's wishing you good luck on the build, and your intended solo-circumnavigation.

Glen reminds us that “... as many Americans have walked on the moon as have sailed non-stop around the world.”

He'd like to become American #13.
Sailing Vessel... Semper Fi...?

Chris,

Thanks for the welcome. My first boat was a Roberts Off Shore 38. As things would have it, in some small way I'm from your neck of the woods. Well, Brisbane anyway. My family hails from the Paddington section of Brisbane. I'm the product of a WWII U S Naval Officer and a Aussie war bride. My brother was born In Brisbane, I got my start down under, but came into this world in California.

Glen

Aloha Glen,
Welcome aboard! Good to have some more Marines on the forum. I was introduced to an Ingrid 38 this last summer and did about 60 hours of sailing in SF Bay and down to Monterey. They are rugged hulls and great sea boats.
Kind regards,
JohnL

P.S. I'm not a Marine, just knew a lot of them when I was in the Navy and have a great deal of respect for them and their mission.
Regards,
JohnL
