The Betty Glennn

5 years ago

5 years ago

I bought her home 2 weeks ago.

She has been allowed to fall into a sad state but Plywood boats are not that hard to restore and she is basically sound.

We are going to give it a go.

I want to cruise the inter-coastal with her.

She has some sweet old lines in my eyes.

I'm working on an Owens as well

I believe we are both working on the same boat....

I'm restoring a '62 Owens Flagship (27' Mahogany).

If you need photos of any part of my boat, or any other info regarding Owens, I have been gathering information for the last two years, including many pictures of other Owens boats.

This plywood seems to have a paper coating on it.

I have heard of this before isn't it like omd board or something and should I sand it off or leave it?
