Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Thanks jacques and das boot, I will use such a pin when I get towards putting the keel into the finished trunk. ( "Big" problem is to choose a thin dowel or Georges ss pin. ) Right now I want to finish the trunk and leave the melting of lead on the keel because I wouldnt be able to test fit it with ...

Re: 1971 170 Aquasport Rebuild

Hi, You did a great job and dokumented it very well. Because I want to do my hatches exactly like You do them, I have a few questions about it which only a silly Austrian like me can have. My problem ist that I am not very good with my hands ( nearly clumsy ) and before I do something on my boatbuil...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Here is a picture of the top of the centerboard, where I am planning to use the lifting system for small boats described in the How To's. I hope my AD14 is small enough that it will work. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/normal_068_centerboard_lifting_hole.JPG and here one of the...

Hi,
Progress is slow in comparison to all the guys building, but I have now the centerboard ready for melting the lead into it.

Re: 1971 170 Aquasport Rebuild

Hallo,
I am following your rebuild and I have great admiration how you perform with glass and epoxy. I can learn a lot from it.
I have one question, what is this vaccum system you got and what will you use it for and how does it work ?
Greetings from Karl (Austria )

Re: AD 14

Hallo Bondo, I have seen the beautiful picture of your centerboard and trunk case. Can You tell me what you all did before you will now put antifouling paint to it ? Fibreglas with plain resin and then resin mixed with white colouring paste or did You put on Quickfair, or is there on top of all that...

Re: Adelie centerboard pivot

Hallo Bondo, Thank you for answering my question about the delrin part. Even that it is not on the plan/required I like the idea and I will also make it like that. You even answered my not expressed question about to much space between centerboard and case. ( Another worry less ) One thing about the...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Thanks KS8 for encouraging me to carry on a bit faster in Winter.
It took me so long because I had some chores like painting ten doors of my 110 year old house and getting the garden
ready for Winter.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, At last I have cut all the plywood panels for bottom, sides, transom, rudder, keelshoe, centerboard and centerboard case. Now I carry on over Winter to laminate the pieces in my cellar workshop which has a steady 17 degrees celsius. I also melted about 45 kg of lead which I got from a scrap yard...
