ODYSSEA / Robert Sharp / rsharp@datasync.com / 6-25-98: Starting frames and keel

ODYSSEA / Joseph Delceppo / Malta / kanina@melita.net / 7-10-03: Since you kindly put my letter and pictures of my Noyo Trawler on the web in February this year, I now have the pleasure in letting you know that another beautiful Glen-L design is being built in Malta, namely the Odyssea (36′ cruising yacht). This time it is my uncle Joseph Delceppo who has decided to build this boat. He will in fact lengthen the boat to 46′. Right now the frame members are already in place and fixing chines and battens is taking place. As soon as work progresses and we get some pictures taken I shall forward them to you. Rennie Delceppo

OUTRAGE / Jack Budak / email address not valid 4-10-03 / 7-15-99: Started this boat a long time ago (it’s a long story) anyway finished it and launched on 7-3-99. Using 88 Johnson. Porpoised a little, making trim tabs. Very fast, gets on plane quickly. Made some changes: center console flats boat with re-inforced deck for fishing.

OUTRAGE / Michael Irace / Kyoto, Japan (Biwa Lake) / mike_irace@yahoo.com / 2-8-01: I have spent to this point about 30hrs on the project. I just finished fitting the front deck veneer. Next I will build a storage area under the front deck with walls and a floor to give a more finished apperance. I also plan to install 2 small batteries (one on each side of the front deck area) so I will need to build those compartments. The batteries are from 660cc cars here in Japan and are very compact. Cool. One modification to the boat was to move the console forward of Frame 3 about 12 inches to make the passenger area larger. I used Japanese cherry of greater dimensions than the plans called for for the coaming and carling. Motor: 120HP Force 2-cycle. 4-10-03: The boat went together in much less actual working time than I imagined. I took, however, about 7 months to complete it. That included only a couple hours here and there and very few 8-hour days. I would say that I could do it again (better), knowing what I know now, in a couple weeks not including painting. It really is THAT easy. Of course the glassing was no treat but even that took less effort and had less problems than I imagined. The design was straight-forward and completely logical. Even so it yielded a really slick package that looks and performs better than the sum of it’s parts.

OUTRAGE / Jeff Brunot / Marietta, Ga / j.brunot@robertco.com / 5-30-03: I had to level the ground under my back deck and, after constructing a roof system to keep the rain off during construction, I set up there. The frames are on the building form, longitudinals being fitted. (see Customer Photos)(previously built Fife)

OUTRAGE / Patrick & Todd Wetherill / Painted Post, NY /Patrick10Spencer@aol.com ToddWetherill@aol.com / 9-20-04: The frames, stem, transom, keel are now assembled and on the set up unit. We are in the process of installing the chine block and sheer clamps before cold weather sets in. (see Customer Photos)

OUTRAGE / Scott Anderson / Raleigh, North Carolina / sanderson1@nc.rr.com / 11-16-05: The hull exterior is complete; applying fiberglass; soon to flip and begin interior work. To be moored on the Virginia side of Lake Gaston.

OUTRAGE / John Wilmot / Edgewater, Maryland / johncwilmot@wilmot.com / 6-24-08: I am building the Outrage and am just about finished with the bottom. I have the plywood on, 4 applications of epoxy from your kit, and just installed the lift strakes. I plan to sand and give it one more coat of epoxy before I paint with Interlux Primer and Brightside. Thanks for the help. Your plans are great.

OVERNITER / Dave Baker / Surrey, British Columbia, Canada /dave.baker@creo.com / 02-21-02: I have just started laying out plywood for transom, stem, and breast-hook. 4-12-02: I have built the transom to the stage where it can go on the building form and now I am building the frames. I have chosen to use Yellow (Alaska) Cedar which is very nice to work with, is quite strong, and has a beautiful smell when being cut. 4-10-03: I am still in the process of construction, however, we have recently moved and I am building a new shop in order to resume the project. I hope to continue construction of the boat within the next year.
