Ben wrote to us asking some questions about this family's 20-year-old Glen-L Topper sailboat. The boat's primary builder had passed away, but now he and the family were keen to get it back on the water.
After some back and forth, a few construction fixes, a new sail, and some rigging notes, Ben wrote back with these fun photos from the successful re-launch. Great job to everyone involved!
The Topper was designed as a convenient car-toppable boat (or she can ride on the smallest of trailers) with pretty lines and enough capacity for two aboard. A simple sleeved mainsail makes rigging a snap and handling a breeze. —Glen-L
