Glen L Marine Super Spartan Hydoplane * Price Drop *


Ok Guy's, I have a Glen L Marine Super Spartan Hydroplane that needs to go.

You can look at this in two way's. It's either a MONSTER sized RC Boat, or It's a Micro sized Hydro that you can ride in. The boat was made from Lloyd's of London certified marine grade plywood, Honduran Mahogany, Silicon Bronze Screws and nails, 4oz glass on top and 6oz glass on the bottom.

Specs
Length overall 10'-2"
Beam 5'-0"
Hull depth 12"
Average passengers 1
Hull weight (approx.): 115 lbs.

This Hydro can really get moving. With me in it, 225 lbs fat butt (at the time) I clocked it on GPS doing 80.5 mph with a Yamato Y-102 racing engine which I have for sale as well.

The boat can easily be converted to RC for you Monster boaters, or, ... If you have a wild side, ... go ahead, kneel on down in there and see if you can pass 80mph with only 1/4" of plywood between you and the water!

She needs a little work to get her back on the water. It hasn't been on the water since 2013. PM me for what's needed to get her going again.

Over $1500 invested

Glen L Mist Miss


1962 my dad and I built a Glen L Mist Miss. Plans still available. We put a 364 CI 325 HP Buick V8 in it. 18' Ski boat that would pull anything!

Thanks guy's, ... it was a blast building and running it. I'd like someone get this going as a Monster RC boat. I just have no use for it since my hip replacement.

Regards
Bill
