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
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.
