Re: AD 14 KIELGE

All of those small problems can be overcome one thing you need to watch for is as you come into the dock area in any kind of cross wind that high bow will get caught by the wind and can turn the boat once you loose speed you will work it out. So to this point you are happy with it?

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

When it comes to checking the rake on you mast this is how I did it I hung a plum bob from the aft top of my mast If I recall it should hang to around the center of the keel when the keel is down this also allowed me to check that my stays were set properly as that string on the plum bob should hang...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

I filled all of those spaces with expanding foam on my boat except for axc hatches to get at that keel pivot pin and under the sole in the cockpit I use that as a storage locker for my ancoers etc

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Nice stable boat I told you it could pack a load.. If you put bering buddies on your trailer wheel that will stop water getting into those wheel barings
