Hi,
I've used the Topper Argo (I'm assuming same dinghy as in UK) for teaching RYA levels 1 to 3.
Stable dinghy with main & jib, but interesting with the big genniker.
You might want to invest in a reduced area mainsail, instead if reefing.

We had a problem with the floor in one of the boats - later versions have foam blocks between the hull & floor to prevent the floor from flexing and cracking. Remember that these were used for teaching, and had a harder life than most dinghies!

Enjoy tge experience,

Colin

We will sail on lakes only(decent size, say 6000 acres)up in Maine. 

Reminds me of a day trip I did decades ago on Moosehead Lake, which was fantastic. In a outboard powered dinghy sadly, but the lake seemed to go on forever, endless forests and hardly any sign of human life, and endless islands - Swallows and Amazons territory on steroids. Fab.

Sounds like heaven to me. Too bad it's so far away from where I am at the moment. I have an Argo btw and I love it.

Hey,
That's great news! I thought I'd take this opportunity to plug my facebook page. I started an Argo Owners page. I couldn't find anything similar, so I'm hopeful some folks find it. As of now, nobody's found me . . .   ; (
This should be a link:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1612829512115234/

There's no ads or strings attached. I just would like to hook up with some owners as I'm all alone with this boat and I'm sure I'll have Qs this spring.

Thanks!
