Ever since I was a kid and dreamed of building a cool boat with my pop in the garage, I knew of the Glen-L name.. The name is as iconic as Chris-Craft and many others.. But to be honest, I only thought of Glen-L as boat plans and kits.. Wow.. could I have not been more wrong? Thanks to the folks at Glen-L and their smarts with the web, the Glen-L community is growing. And more importantly from the look of things.. Fun as hell. And even more shocking.. and hold on here.. Women.. real women… HOT Women! And it doesn’t matter what your boat looks like.. Or how big it is.. They have women at there parties..
Oh not the kind of women that get dragged along. Or are hired to drape themselves on the bow of a boat.. Which reminds me.. Keep Voting for AMANDA.. Here.. Anyway… These women actually seem to participate! What the heck is that all about? Oh we have Woody Gal.. who I love and is great.. But they have more.. they have Woody GalS…with a plural S,,,, wives and girlfriends, and get this.. They have a real woman who is charge of all this..Yup… Gayle Brantuk is the VP of Glen-L Marine and the daughter of the founder Glen L.Witt and is doing an amazing job… My world is all messed up now.. It’s not about the hats? Or the fact that my boat is 60 years old? What? Could it be that maybe its all about being out on a cool boat that you built with as a team, a family.. That maybe, just maybe its just that? And the fact that you have other things in your life to talk about.. WHAT! Please help me here.. Does this mean that the fact that I used a #8 screw instead of a #6 is not interesting to women? OH GOD!!!!!!!! Waiiiit, wait one minute..Wait.. Maybe it’s not us and them.. they are me, these are cool Woody Boats.. We’re all Woody Boaters.. Been around since the 50’s, have history, patina.. And for the record, never stopped.. Maybe Glen-L is one of the icons of the classic boat hobby.. It certainly represents the best aspects of the hobby of Antique & Classic Boats.. If you want to see how much fun this community has..
