Re: Glen-L Fancy Free-- your thoughts?
I've built a couple Glen-L boats, too. One for power, one for sail, both small and vee bottomed. Good plans, good boats. I'd guess Fancy Free would be on par with other boats of its type. But there are those who would say to build any of them is a mistake. That the flat bottomed sharpie/dory hull form will be disappointing no matter how well its designed. People are lured to build them because of the apparent simplicity. So it may depend on whether or not you'd be happy with a flat bottom single chine hull.
There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
