Gingerbread, The Latest and Greatest Shipbuilding Material

  Friday, December 27, 2013 / Stephanie / Uncategorized  

Our top engineer, Jennifer, and chemist, Brian, went straight to work designing this ship. Brian's "game face" ...creative juices are flowing! "Ta-da!" Here comes the frosting. Inside structural support for the deck. The stage is set... Mast attempt #1 - this design, although true to form for a square sailed boat, was much too heavy when rigged with two fruit-roll-up sails. A masterpiece! She sails beautifully through the sparkling blue waters, so clear you can see the coral and fishes below! Our captain steers with the mighty tiller. Dream boat! Happy Holidays!!

    That is a better idea than a sleigh for Santa to deliver presents to cruisers. He will love you for thinking of it and then making it for him. (I presume it was made for Santa!)
