Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Actually it is nearly six years since starting my Adelie 14 project but yesterday I made my first sail on this lovely boat. It took me much longer to dress and raise the mast than planned. The weather forecast for Tuesday was not all that good so I decided to sail on Wednesday where they predict...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Hi, Your boat looks better everyday. Just an addition for all the others who do not know carlins. They exist in boatbuilding for a long time and I found the page how to fit a carlin in my first boatbuilding book. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/Fitting_a_Carlin.jpg If you want to ru...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, The mast is free standing and only supported by mast partner and 1,60 meters below by the mast foot. A line from the side of the foot is attached to the end of the mast so it will not wander when lying ready for stepping. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/20190616_143433_Mast_part...

A happy snap very worth while looking at. This shiny paint is really beautifull. Only Wouter can produce similar surfaces, I wish I could.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Thanks Jeff, Craig, Tony, Bogieman and Michael for the encouragement it boosts me a lot because the families encouragement is not so hot. My son said this morning I first go for a jog then I can help you with the mast and for my wife preparing the Sunday lunch is more important than watching the...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi Bogie, Got your message and question, I just did not know how to answer there and that is why I will answer you here. My mast is a standard aluminium sailing mast with 60 x 55 mm profile. It also has a slot where one would insert a standard sail. Because I do not need this slot for my junk sail I...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, My first sail is coming closer. Today I practised raising and lowering the shear legs which I use for raising the mast. I can do it in a few minutes and it should not take too long to raise the mast afterwards. This is now the last version of my shear legs. I made them from aluminium poles and a...

Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Hi Rick, Watched your videos with great interest and I always get new hints how to work with epoxy. I see you are using some protection from your elbows forward to the gloved hands. Do you use these so you wont bang your arms against any corners ? I have seen them only on racing skiers who wear them...

Re: New Boat Builder Central Website

Hi, This new page looks very nice and that on the FS13 plans start page are 4 pictures of my FS13 makes me smile with my mouth from ear to ear. The only thing is that the button for more pictures for the boat plans does not bring them up yet, but some other guy reported that to you already. Jacques ...
