OK... It's done!  Over 300 customers have been migrated to the new website and have their download access restored!  If you're one of them, please click the 'Confirm your new account' link in the latest email that you received.

If you purchased plans AFTER August 15th, 2016 and haven't done so already, please register at our  website so I can activate your download access...

-----------------------------------

DARN! The stuff below is true, but I had to start over ...all the email confirmation links had 'localhost' in them instead of 'glacierboats.com'.  Starting over... sigh.  If/when you get another email, just follow the NEW link...


-----------------------------------

WEBSITE UPDATE: I am currently migrating users from our old website to our new.  There are approximately 600 customers getting migrated, and I can only send out 50 emails per hour (12 hours of emails), so it'll likely take a day or three to get everyone migrated into the new system.  Your continued patience is appreciated!

GOOD NEWS: You will be notified via email if YOUR user migration is about to occur.  When your user migration DOES occur, you will then receive a second email - One that asks you to confirm your new account (click a link), and gives you your login information (including temporary password).  Once you confirm your new account by clicking the link in the email, we recommend logging in with your email address and the assigned temporary password.... then change your password right away.  Note that it's an ugly password and it's not recorded anywhere, so if you mess up ...please use the 'Forgot my Password' link on the login page and follow instructions...

DOWNLOAD ACCESS: Once you confirm your account, then the Download tab at our website will automatically make all your downloads available to you whenever you are logged in... no need for me or you to do anything to activate downloads... just login and voila!  Please let me know if something isn't working right...

NEW CUSTOMERS: Customers buying plans after about August 15th, 2016 are NEW customers - You are NOT being automatically set up.  Please click the Register link at the top of our website and follow instructions.  I will activate your downloads after you have successfully registered (and confirmed your account...)

Thanks!  Everyone should be migrated into the new website by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest ... I hope :)

Announcements / Thank you! It's been great year!
« on: December 21, 2016, 07:40:02 AM »
I just wanted to pause and say thank you to everyone!  It's been a great year and more people are building a Great Alaskan with each passing year ... and I'm glad!  There are now Great Alaskans in several places around the world, and more coming ... I'm happy to see all the people that are seeing their dreams come true!

Merry Christmas!  Thanks again for your patience while we continue to upgrade our website and our forums ...they'll continue to be a work in progress for a bit here, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  And don't forget, we'll be opening a new website (http://www.digiboats.com) where you or people you know can sell their own boat plans - we can help with drafting, documentation, and CAD services, including conversion of your plans into CNC-ready drawings so that you can also sell kits.  While a kind of placeholder site is already in place for Digiboats, I expect it'll be up and running (starting with the Great Alaskan, and more designs coming) sometime after the end of the year.  Contact me if you have questions or interest, or know someone that does (http://glacierboats.com/Home/Contact or http://digiboats.com/Home/Contact)

General Discussion about the Great Alaskan / TESTING TAPATALK

Just testing the forum restoration... make sure Tapatalk works!

We just moved the forums from our old Apache (Linux) server to the new Windows Server/IIS server and are having troubles ...it seems that file paths or permissions are broken somehow, even though they all look correct.  We're working on it feverishly ...but until fixed, avatars and attachments and forum styling (themes) appear to be broken.  You can still post text and read all posts etc though... stay tuned!

UPDATE:  The builder's forum is nearly fixed ... I'm seeing odd behavior now and then, and am working on a fix.  Please let me know what issues YOU spot... thanks.  I will update here when it appears that all is finally well ... at least the attachments and pictures work now!


Thanks for your patience!

Announcements / Glacier Boats of Where?
« on: January 12, 2016, 07:23:22 AM »
Just an FYI - My wife and I are moving to Idaho very soon, and I don't think we can maintain an LLC in Alaska if we're not actually residents.  Note that I will re-form the business as 'Glacier Boats of Alaska', incorporated in Idaho.  From a user's perspective, all will stay the same ...except for the business' actual location.  Seems odd to use 'of Alaska' still, but that's where it started and the Great Alaskan was designed specifically for Alaskan waters (West coast in general)... all that water at the downwind end of the world's largest ocean :)

Hey ...As it turns out, I just got offered a job in Idaho, and decided the "Take it!" followed by the "Take this job and shove it!" answers seemed to fill the bill  ::) ;D, so we're moving... to Boise, ID.  Selling off stuff that I don't need.  I have a 3-gallon kit, unopened and still in USPS boxes, that I was going to use for a motor canoe, but never got around to it.  I'll sell it to the first comer for $50.

Also have gunpowder, bullets (I'm keeping the brass and all reloading equipment), and primers that I can't ship easily.  Also have garden stuff too ...like a gas powered blower, Stihl weedeater etc that we won't be needing.  Got various and miscellaneous tools too, including a Bosch 12" chop saw, bench top Delta brand drill press.  Nice Costco dog kennel, plush like-new electric recliner etc.  Name your prices... We're going to move out in only 2 PODs and are clearing house...

Announcements / Added new "Other Boats that I Own" forum... have fun
« on: August 27, 2014, 11:31:09 AM »
Hey ...We all own, or used to own, boats other than a Great Alaskan.  Show us what you've got, what you like and don't like about it, or adventures/pix/etc associated with your other boats.  Don't feel like you are restricted to only talking about Great Alaskans around here...  :o

Thanks, and enjoy!

Announcements / 47 mph Great Alaskan on YouTube

Courtesy Adrian Pau, Gresham, Oregon.  Link to video of 47 mph Great Alaskan on YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8O-IHPip5E

His boat is the one trailing the camera boat... it catches up and passes it up.

PS: More of Adrian's videos coming, and will be updating the web site with more pix from additional builders soon...
