Re: Bad Day

Re: any way to find out year

The Glen L 17 was designed in November of 1964 so yours was built after that. Many builders make a cosmetic changes (not structural) so all don't look alike.

sail dimensions are given on #1 plan sheet of all sailboats. Many builders have "sewn" their own sails.

see chapter 6 of our Rigging Small Sailboats on-line here: ... boats.html
