Re: AD16 rudder: Ronstan spring & clevis pin

Hi Bogey, I was also puzzled what was meant with this ronstan pin, but when I bought my 3 piece rudder fittings I found out that there was also a small strip of stainless steel with it which needs to e srewed to the transom and prevents the rudder to move up. When one wants to remove the rudder I mu...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogie,
Your boat looks really phantastic.. When you turn the boat do not forget to fasten the centre board in the cockpit tight so it cannot move while the guys are turning it. Good luck with the flip.
Greetings from Karl

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Thank You, Yes it does seem as if times flying and as Winter is approaching here I made my boat fit for it under the carport by taking everything out of the boat what I left the whole summer in it like fenders, life jackets, paddles, 2 batteries and my plastic boarding ladder. On your side in Alaska...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey, I think you are doing fine to make your boat to be unique and seen. You said you will sail where there are lots of boats except sailboats. And that is why I send you this picture of Georges Adelie. He said to me he is not scared of the Pacific Ocean or the 6 foot waves on his way out to Va...

Re: Help me pick a boat, please!

Hi, I have read the whole thread and here is my advise. You do not need to go fast, you would like to sail and you would like to take your family along in good weather. while you hold a fishing line into the water. That except for the fishing part was exactly my idea before I built my boat . I got t...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey,
You are making fast progress. I love your pictures. Is the plastic 1 1/4 inch ring a bit big for the pivot point and is the plastic thick walled and as hard as Delrin ? How thick is your SS sleeve at the pivot ? It should fit into the 1 1/4 inch ring closely.
