While searching the internet for Glasspar related photos, I saw four early pics labeled 30' Meridian mold and testing. The date on the mold pic is 1961, is that correct for the 30' mold? That does look like the 30' hull to me and the testing photos background looks like Newport / Balboa where I used to hang out (tho I admit it's not much to go on). The source of these photos was listed as the GOA website but I do not see these pics here. Is this old or wrong info, am I missing something? :unsure: Anyway, if these are of the 30' Glasspar Meridian they are fascinating glimpses of the old days.

JR,

These photos were posted by Eddie Grijalva (former Glasspar employee). They can be found on the site under the Members Menu/Glasspar History/Historical Articles/Building Boats/The Meridian Series. Lots of other cool stuff there if you've never poked around the site. :) In your first photo posted, that's Eddie fifth from the right.

Eddie's been having some log on problems, so we're working to get him back on the site.

Mr. Walsh added a 2-foot swim step to the end of his boat, hence making it 32-feet overall. Despite all of the modifications to his boat, all of the workmanship was beautifully done! :woohoo:

Received the following email from Eddie. Appears this boat is on the market again! Not sure I like the color change, but it's not like I have the money to buy it... :blush:

Anyone truly interested, please contact Rob Webb.

"Hi Guys,

I don't know if you are aware but the 2003 Glasspar 32 Sedan is back on the market. It was purchased a year ago and the new owner did lots of work and changed the color scheme (to less blue). He just got a job promotion and had to move to Florida and he is not shipping the boat back. Here is a link. Can you please pass the news via the Glasspar owners site? Thanks.

Looks like this boat made it's way out to Florida and is being sold (again) on eBay. Unfortunately, she looks a little worse for the wear than when Eddie and I saw her down in Long Beach. Looks like the marine company seller didn't take any time to clean her up and do much for staging for sale. It's a shame this beauty hasn't been well cared for. Previous owner, Mr. Walsh, would be disappointed since you could tell this was his pride and joy.
