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 found these 2 nice pictures of Georges Adelie http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/IMG_0403_28329.JPG I think this good day on the boat he spent on lake Washington http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/a_good_day_on_the_boat_004.jpg Maybe this can convince you to build a...

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.
Greetings from Karl

Re: Adelie Builders Question

Hi, Thank you George for your information that it does not heel very much. But I would like to know if you installed and used such a toe strap or because of your backrest you forgot to install it altogether. Most probably Tony is right one must sail a lot then I find out if I need a toe strap or not...

Adelie Builders Question

Hi, Now that I start sailing my Wilde Qualle I am not sure if I should mount 2 toe straps in the cockpit from the companionway towards the transom. Have you all mounted these toe straps as mentioned in the building notes ? Have you been in a situation that your Adelie was heeling so much to need the...
