building dreams - about 40 years ago!
I was looking at a Wayfarer brochure that also included Hartley
information so mailed away for their brochure as well. The Hartley's
were very innovative I thought. First time I had seen plywood
multi-chine construction, full-width cabins and I believe water
ballast was even offered but not sure now.
At that time they had to be ordered directly from NZ and of course I
was confused about which model I wanted as they ranged from 12 feet to
21 feet:-) The TS16 or 18 seemed to be the most desirable.
Sounds like fun to finally get the plans. Micro however has a lot to
offer that the Hartley's don't have. More interior space without the
centerboard, easy to rig and very stable.
It is more like a small ship than a larger dinghy.
Here is my email "arvent at hotmail dot com." Send me you mailing
address and I will get the plans into the mail by next week and will
air mail them.
We cannot have Micronuts building other designs!
