Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hallo everybody, I have a specific question to all Adelie builders: On the nesting plan sheet is the suggestion to cut out of a 13 mm plywood the rudder twice, the transom 3 times, but the stem only once. Did you all build your Adelies with just a 13 mm thick stem ? I tend to laminate 2 pieces to ha...

Re: AD16 Karenina

Hallo Stuff,

The inside of your boat looks really great , I wish I were that far.
Hopefully I can get Monstaliner here in Europe.
How big did you make the inspection holes 15 cm ( 6 inches ) diameter or is it only 10 cm ( 4 inches )?
Greetings from Karl (Austria)

Re: AD16 Karenina

Hi Stuff, Nice to see your progress and as you know I am building an AD14 and therefore Your pictures are an example for me how my boat must look when I am at the same stage. I have one question after carefully looking at the foto: It looks as if there are 2 pipes coming out of your floorboard, one ...

AD 14 Fiberglass ounces per what ?

Hi, I want to order all the necessary fiberglass for my AD 14. Now I have the following problem: The plan asks for 12, 9 and 4 ounzes weights. Is this per square foot or yard ? Once I know that I can convert it to our metric system. I can order in Europe only grams per square metre. I am sure one of...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Thank You Bondo and Das Boot, The two of you are teaching me hopefully right up to the end of my boat. Thanks for the tip that the strength comes from the outside fiberglass. I will just fiberglass the big inside panels of the centerboard case and put enough resin on the battens and I will be using ...

Re: Wood for Battens

HI, I am building an AD14 and to save weight I am considering Paulownia wood for battens and dimensional pieces of wood because it is nearly as light as balsa wood and it is here in Europe available at BAUHAUS and much cheaper than oak for instance. Has anyone ideas to it ? I posted the question und...

Re: 1971 170 Aquasport Rebuild

Hi Rickk and Matt Gent, Your explanations about the vaccum technik is beautiful and excellently shown. I do understand everything except the word visqueen which is used by both of You and I think it is the bottom of the bagging material. Am I right ? ( I have only heard of beauty, drag and the Engli...
