Glasspar Boat Builder: Circa 1952-1962

Edd Grijalva was born in El Toro in 1933 and raised in El Toro and Santa Ana, California. He moved to Vallejo in 2003 where he became interested in owning a 1965 Seafair Sedan made by the Glasspar Boat Company. He took a junked shadow of a boat and refurbished it to a pristine “classic.” Glasspar is considered the original fiberglass designer and manufacturer of boats in the 1950s through the 1960s in Santa Ana. This story is an account of Eddie’s experiences while he worked at the Glassspar Fiberglass Boat Company. Starting in the sanding department, Eddie also worked in research and development, and in all phases of the design and manufacturing of the Meridian, Ventura, Seafair, Mariner, Trident, Delmar, Avalon, G-3, Tacoma, Citation, Lido Series, Marathon, Superlite, and Balboa. Eddie served in the United States Army during the Korean . In addition to his career with Glasspar, he worked as a painter of kitchen cabinets, had his own janitorial business, and retired from the Santa Ana Unified School District as a plant custodian. During this time, he did twenty years of research of his ancestors, namely Juan Pablo Grijalva, who was a lieutenant in the Spanish Army and first resident of Orange County. In 1992, he located the remains of the Grijalva adobe site. Eddie is also part Gabrielino Indian, which maintains a direct link between the Spanish and Gabrielino of 200 years ago. In addition to being recognized by various genealogy and history entities, he has also been recognized for his beautiful artwork by Laa Beach, California. The inspiration for this book came from the many proud owners of Glasspar boats Eddie has met in recent years.
