Re: AD 14, question for Jacques

Hallo Bondo, Thanks very much for the pivot explanation which brings me to another question. The picture of your pivot assembly shows the Delrin squares as if it consists of 3 parts. Did you fit on the middle plywood part of the centerboard a smaller square of Delrin plastic so that it funtions the ...

Re: AD 14, question for Jacques

Hallo Jacques and Bondo, Thank you very much for the extensive discussion about the small centerboard problems I have. I can fit the centerboard to fit the trunk if I follow Bondos advice of the right angle at the top of the case and then I can keep the tip of the board 20 mm ( 3/8 ") away from the ...

Re: AD 14, question for Jacques

Hallo Bondo ( and Jacques ), Thanks for the info that you also had problems with the trunk. I definitely could not arrive at the von Jacques supplied picture with the red and yellow outlines of the trunk on full size measurements. He has drawn the trunk top practically parallel to the keel which doe...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hallo Bondo, Thanks for the adice about building the keelshoe.I have one more question about it. According to the plan one should make at the bow end a 25 mm ( about 1 " on your plan ) radius. I cannot see it on any of your pictures. Did you prefer it to be pointed and when yes why ? Greetings from ...

Micro-Petrel August 2013 gonandkarl

This little rowing boat was the first boat I built and was the test before I started building an Adelie 14. I made enough mistakes: 1. I used locally available birch plywood 6.5 mm instead of light weight okoume ( 6 mm ) according to the plan. The hull weight of 28 kg I exceeded by 15 Kg. 2. I used ...

Re: AD 14, question for Jacques

Hi Jacques, I have 4 questions about the keel shoe of the AD14 plan. 1. I see on the plan B264/8 it should have a R25 ( metric plan ) rounding at one end of the shoe. I assume it should be rounded near the transom which I think is on the left side of the plan ?!?!?! On most posted pictures of bondos...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hallo everybody, At last my Okoume plywood from France has arrived ( unfortunately one 9 mm panel short ) and I have started cutting the first panels for my AD14 build. As I justified the buy of different sanding machines and an electric file ( very narrow belt sander ) with the necessary renovating...

Re: AD 16 DWL

Hallo Das Boot, Thanks for the reassurance about the capacity of AD. I will not have the 2 extra feet of AD16 because my plywood arrived at last and I have already cut the first panels for my AD14. The number of interested sailors in my family is rather small and I can only count on one mate for sur...
