View Full Version : Cool cabin?

I was amazed to find this owner designed cabin included on the Glen-L site .

I've seen that one before, and I kept thinking that the cabin must be BEHIND the boat, not in it.
The hull in question is Glen-L's "Sweet Caroline" dory.
Nice work, but I've got to wonder whether it isn't a capsize waiting to happen. Looks like she'd be much more stable upside down than rightside up. ;)

I agree that it's too much cabin for that hull. Windage would be a huge issue. Aesthetically, it looks like a trawler or tug cabin, which doesn't go with the skiff hull.

best set up for that hull, IMO, would be a cuddy cabin with helm on the outside cabin wall. nexus marine has a gorgeous looking 21' dory with just that set up, but it costs. ive considered doing the glen-l sweet caroline and fabing up a similar cuddy cabin and perhaps a removable canopy for lounging under in the hot sun or sealing up for camping. hmm, i'm getting ideas again ; )

Another Sweet Caroline, but with a more practical cabin...
Tar Devil - Nice picture. BTW Dan&Louie's Oyster Bar is still the same dependable place. Fresh petite Yakqina Bay oysters, oyster stew, fish and chips, it's all good! My computer has been down and up and down - sorry to take so long in responding. Hope your wife is doing better.

Thanks, edsr. I'll be back in Portland in August or September. If I come in August we'll be camping and fishing in Nehalem Bay. If September, Ft. Canby park on the north jetty of the Columbia.
I plan to once again sample Dan and Louie's delightful offerings!!
Wife is doing OK. Went back to the Dr. for a check up early this week, found an infection in her incision. Antibiotics seem to clearing it up and she say's she's feeling a world of difference. Thanks for asking!

Tar Devil - Let me know when you are in OR perhaps we can set-up a fishing date. The salmon will be available and tuna too. My dory will know the way to the fish without a GPS by then. I think you can contact me through this site, if not post to let me know.

Maybe it was the kids cubby recycled?
Thanks for the info about your better half Phil, I was just about to ask. Great news!
