Where can you get the best deal on Sperry Topsiders?

I need to know because I bought a sailboat and I want to get them as gifts for all of my deck hands.

Isn't she a beaut?



It's called the Scorpion :

I love my Sperry's. You just have to get the Gold Cup line.

do it! They are pretty neat for a minimal investment. I have 50$ into mine. ;)

I did however also invest in a pair of folding sawhorses and some sandpaper.

So far I drilled out the broken off bolts that held the mount for the tiller and re-tapped them. I also took some sandpaper to the gel coat on front of the bow and gave it a couple coats of wax.



I plan on doing this to the whole boat, along with trying my hand at some fiberglass repair of a few superficial cracks over the winter. I also will strip the tiller and the daggar board and re-varnish them. I'm pretty psyched.

Back before I moved out to the east coast a few nights of drinking led to a grand plan to sail two sunfish and a laser from MI to WI. I may be ten years older now but I still want to attempt this stunt for shits and giggles

I want to take my 4winns across the lake. The trophy would probably be a better choice since it has a 100 gallon tank.

Straight across holland to Milwaukee it's around 75 - 80 miles. I sail it every summer on the old mans boat thus the start of that idea. use that as the chase boat for safety and to hold the spare beer
