Glen-L Chessie Flyer by Alf Bangert, Hornby Island BC

Updated October 3, 2021 I was looking for a trailerable sailboat that would be big enough to take on the waters of the Georgia Strait (Salish Sea). The Chessie Flyer just seemed like the most suitable of all designs I looked at. Her looks are what hooked me.

Date: Sun, 20 Jun 2004 Subject: Chessie Flyer Barry: I am resubmitting pictures of the Chessie Flyer which I built several years ago. I was looking for a lake boat with room for two adults and two children, that would allow them room for lake camping. The Flyer filled this bill. It seemed as if someone would come up and inquire about the boat wherever we went. We live the Sacramento area and spent many weekends on Folsom Lake. Trailering this boat was easy due to the fact that it set so low on the trailer. I was able to go to Donner Lake, Oroville Lake, The Delta (picture of boat under sail), Martinez and Tomales Bay. I found I could sail up on the shore due to the (9 inch draft) and push the boat back into deeper water easily (picture of boat on shore in Folsom). This design worked out well for me.
