Re: Thoughts on small HP outdboard motor for AD16?

Hi, The best outboards would be Honda 2,5 or Suzuki but even better is an American make MinnKota C30 or stronger trolling motors and they come very cheap. I bought mine new for Euro 180 and it works beautiful on my Adelie with 5 forward neutral and 3 reverse gears no nead for 360 degrees turning fix...

Re: Homemade wooden pushpits?

I used epoxy with wood flour mixed and left the 2 surfaces of the plywood rather rough and I made lots of dents with a pointed hammer into them from where the epoxy wood flour mxture could not get pressed out. In addition to that I did not press the plywood very hard with the clamps against the form...

Re: Homemade wooden pushpits?

Hi, I made my tiller out of the okoume marine ply cut outs of the keel and laminated them the same way as the keel and then shaped it. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/DSCN0363.JPG http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/DSCN0638.JPG http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpic...

Re: Homemade wooden pushpits?

Hi, I was also cheap and made my push pits out of 2 fibreglass and one carbon sleeve over a foam mandrel and when I had them finished they did not look so nice so I ordered stainless steel ones for the same money.

Re: Transom modification AD16 Myrtle Beach Bogieman

Hi, The above picture with the completely cut out transom is a good idea if you want to use the boat with a small outboard motor on one side. I wonder how you attach the rudder when you want to sail most probably with inserting some wabbly wasboard transom version. Unfortunately there is no building...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi, I have used the 2 compartments under the cockpit sole for storage and no foam and filled everything else up to the sole with foam. In the cabin I think you will need some more cleats along the sides otherwise it is difficult to get the sole down nice and flat especially if there is some air betw...

As epoxy should be kept...

Re: TW 28

Hi Wolfgang, As I am a bateau customer for a couple of years having built 2 boats from bateau plans here in Austria , I would advise you to find out the shipping costs for a TW28. One Norwegian builder I remember, mentioned that it cost approximately 1500 dollars to have the kit shipped to Oslo. It ...

Re: MI12 S Bateau Strip planking question

Hi,
Thank you Jacques and Fallguy. I did not know that there will be hardly any twist at the first strip from sheer to bow. I will be using plywood strips and Jacques suggestion of number one. It seems that I am thinking too far ahead on my build before I even purchased the plan.
Thanks anyway.
Karl

MI12 S Bateau Strip planking question

Hi, My MacInnis 12 S round chine plans are still in my head and while reading the book Building Strip-Planked Boats as preparation for the actual build my next question is the following: The bows of the MI 12 are raised by a few inches . Should I choose to overcome this with the Top-Down without She...
