Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

Hi,
I cannot judge anything about power boats but yours turned out for me like a dream and did you put it to work ( fishing ) already ?
Congratulations

Re: AD-14

Hi, Good that you mentioned these apps I will try using them on my next sailing outing. This will only be when my ordered carbon mast 3,2 kg will be here and I can raise it easily. Have installed Sail Free gps ( free of adverts ) and it works perfect, if I switch to map it shows my home the garage a...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi George, Did you sail all this distance or use the motor a lot ? Yes I lay the mast end exactly at the hole against my wooden contraption and tie a line from it to the mast shoe at the bottom of the boat in front of frame A. This makes sure that the mast end cannot get away from the hole. Here are...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Thanks to David Patty and Greig I love my sailboat and as I am still resting I am studying the How To's article of building a carbon fibre mast which I could lift by hand into the mast hole. I have made my 2 spars boom and yard according to this How To and they are as strong as steel bars. I am ...

an aluminium mastCarbon Mast for my Adelie 14 ?

Hi, I have an aluminium mast which weighs in at 10 KG with fittings and dressed with the lines at the mast head. I can raise and lower the mast with the also aluminium shear legs I made myself. On my first sail yesterday I found out that mounting the shear legs takes too long and is a bit awkward ev...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Thank you fellow boatbuilders for the congratulations. I now know what you feel to move ones body on something you made yourself. In 45 years of being a computer guy producing software ( you would call it apps today ) like on a conveyor belt I missed this feeling because the pride was missing ha...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Actually it is nearly six years since starting my Adelie 14 project but yesterday I made my first sail on this lovely boat. It took me much longer to dress and raise the mast than planned. The weather forecast for Tuesday was not all that good so I decided to sail on Wednesday where they predict...
