The Pictorial History of the construction of GingerBread Girl - a Hartley TS16

 

Building this boat myself has been a great way to get my hands on a brand new racing machine that I know is strong and not suffering the ravages of age and poor glues from the 60-70's. The various areas that gave me grief in the old boat have been fully dealt with in this new construction.
