Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Thanks my friends for the congratulations. As I will have my first sail all by myself I carried on playing around with my shear legs for stepping and unstepping he mast. I did manage to get it to work twice already but also had the lot crash down on me twice. The first time it crashed down on th...

Re: Hatch building process

Hi, Thank you for this perfect hatch pictures. I know now what I will do in Winter to renew my 2 cockpit bottom hatches. I thought I am very clever when I cut out the 2 squares from the bottom I wanted to use them again as lids so I glued a batten all around the 4 sides underneath the bottom stickin...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, The last 2 days were quite a bit exciting because of my planned splashing date Sep 1 st. Two days ago my son helped me with the last things to do before yesterdays splashing day. We made it just by the evening to have all the lines and the sheets sorted out cut to length and tested plenty of tim...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Today I painted the hatch for the last time and finally made my 2 euphroes for the junkrig. If you notice on the euphroes picture that the second wheels are skew this is on purpose that they are on different planes to prevent the spans from rubbing against each other. http://gallery.bateau2.com/...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Did not post lately because I was too busy making my new hatch and as I have no more epoxy I made it rather strong out of spruce wood put together with screws and 3 cross supports and a flat top to stand on and I am busy painting it because in 5 days is splashing day and I do not want to sail wi...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogie, Your boat looks really good and because you wrote about the mast partner I would like to give you some advise. Do not make it now rather wait with it until the deck is installed on the boat, because the deck has a bit of camber and the partner should be glued to it in three 6 mm plywood la...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Yes George I am very happy with the boat as it is now and I did notice the cross wind pushing the boat easily sideways especially when my electric cable to the motor gave up completely and my son in law and me had to make the last 50 metres to the shore with paddling on each side me with a long ...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi George, Yes the little motor did work fine with the exception that I made an extension cable of 6 foot to the battery in the cabin and I did not solder the plugs and the plugs got rather hot and we had a few cases where the motor stopped because it did not get power. Now I have solved the problem...

Re: Vintage Briggs and Stratton engine

Hi, Maybe you want something like this Dispro16 design which is meant for rowing and an electric drive sitting behind the bench where it can be lifted out of the water when one wants to row. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/Screenshot-2017-10-5_Albumarchiv281529.png http://gallery.ba...
