Hartley old bean you are being a tadge harsh on the young fellow. In general I am no great fan of floating footpaths and we all know that what some builders did to Hartley's designs were sins against humanity but if you find a really good one they can and do make totally acceptable and very reasonably priced cruising sailboats.

Bugger all resale value of course but that is to be expected.

Did you know that Hartley also designed a vaguely acceptable wee trailor sailor ? Apparently a few hardy fools still sail them in Melbourne and Sydney before moving on to larger termite mounds.
