Building the Glen-L HOT ROD
 

Gayle Brantuk, VP Glen-L Marine Designs out for a ride at the Glen-L Boatbuilder Gathering,
Lake Nickajack, Tennessee, September 7-9, 2012
 

Welcome to Kane Custom Boats' Home Page !   This web site chronicles the construction of a Glen-L Marine Designs  17' V-drive ski boat.  This 1960's style v-drive ski boat will be powered by a 355 cubic inch Chevrolet small block V8.

We've included many photos to illustrate the various steps in the boatbuilding process, with particular attention being given to the mechanical components of the build.  I hope you'll enjoy viewing the full-size mockup, boat, marine engine rebuilding and Glen-L 2100 trailer construction photos.

Feel free to contact us if you are a Glen-L builder in the Ottawa/Hull/Gatineau area, have any questions about the Glen-L Hot Rod or need advice or help with your inboard installation.

Kane Custom Boats Ltd. is a Transport Canada registered recreational boatbuilder. Our Manufacturer's Identification Code is YPB.
