Our condolences to the Glen-L family on the passing of the founder, Glen L. Witt.
August 22, 1918
June 13, 2017
It’s with a heavy heart I announce that my father, Glen Lewis Witt, passed away on June 13, 2017. He lived until age 98 and we are so grateful to have had him with us that long. He founded Glen-L Marine in 1953 and will be remembered for the lives he’s touched all these years through the hobby of building boats.
I’m blessed to be able to continue his legacy here at Glen-L, but will miss his presence, support, encouragement and tremendous knowledge of all things boat building. We sincerely hope you’ll help us keep his legacy alive by building his boats as we continue to serve you.
The family is making plans for a memorial and we will keep you informed. In the meantime, you can make a comment and post photos on the memorial site
we are building.
I’ve seen small tunnels on British canals (small in diameter, anyhow), but this kind of takes it up a level.
Folding frame fat tire ebike with 85 mile range, 750w motor, 48v battery, full suspension & more.
Looks like one to watch… fold it up onboard, then unfold and go at the dock.

Covering vessels of all sizes, from workboats, pleasure craft and yachts to naval fleets and freight ships!
Nothing but Electric and Hybrid Marine Propulsion on show!
We’ve had some various electric bikes and folding bikes on here before… here’s another one that looks slick:
This is will be the fourth generation of their product, so it’s probably not a total shot in the dark, but I can’t vouch for them myself. Certainly looks like it packs up pretty nice for on-board stowage.
I’m thinking this would be perfect for boatbuilding projects. You don’t always need accuracy to the thousandth…
We’ll see… there have been some concerns about stability and the router “jumping”, but so far Bar Smith (the guy behind it) has been successful in other CNC work.
Looks very nice… hadn’t thought about trying to use cardboard and waterproofing it. I wonder how it would do with Coroplast?
Fun and simple build. I’m surprised how high it floats given the thinness of the hulls.
A short article on the use of aluminum in the marine industry and some pro’s/con’s vs carbon fibre, etc.
This is a web site geared around the use of Aluminum, so obviously they may not be totally impartial, but some interesting points.
I thought this was really slick. Some various animations of all the ships at sea. It’s interactive, based on data from 2012.
The intro video has some good info and screenshots (although there is a bit of "global warming" bent depending on how you feel about that).
There are a lot of ships out there… way more than I intuitively felt.
