  1. Hi Neil.
    Glad Gleda has Landed.
    I must say that without the skill and the professionalism of the guy’s taking control of the loading and unloading of Gleda, It could have been a really rough road on the way to the ocean.

    So Praise must go out to all that helped in this task, because one false move and seven years of your dream would have been ruined.

    Good luck now with the build.

    I must say that the heavens opened up here today ,so someone is smiling somewhere.

    Charlie. PS Have you looked at “Gleda away” yet by Otterman.

    Very nice! You’ll soon be falling asleep to the sound of water lapping on the hulls. Lovw watching someone make their dream become a reality. Push on mate-jsut a smidge more to do and you are there. Best of luck with the assembly and floating.

    Thanks Charlie, yep I looked at your vid and sent it out to folks. Thanks for that. Off now to get this boat put back together, see ya!

  5. Great job! Been watching you build all this time. I can’t imagine the butterflies.

    If it makes you feel any better, I’m in Thailand. i turn the A/C down to 25C to cool it down enough to sleep at night. 😀

    Looks like you’ve had a nice clean move.

    I remember helping move John Bellenger’s Pixis (Oro) in the mid>late ’70s. It only had to go about 5 miles down to Lake Ontario (Toronto, Canada). Unfortunately, the clearance to overheads on the route required laying the hulls on their sides.

    I have a picture where we had to push electric wires up with a piece of wood to go through, entering Atlantic Highlands.

    We had only 5 miles between the farm and the harbour though. Very fortunately, this day, there was a car show in town and all the cops were busy somewhere else.

    Still that was fun and i will ever remember this day.
