Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey, I agree with Tony about the pin of the centreboard. It is actually easier to put a Delrin square into the place with the correct hole drilled in its middle. The sleeve of the pin will work its way eventually up through epoxy and wood glue because there is a weight of at least half of the c...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi, You still got lots of time to think about the swing keel, but I think it is difficult to drop the 60 kg beast down the slot on top of the boat because you cannot grip it no matter how many hands you got to help. If you built it exactly per plan it needs to be inserted at an angle otherwise you d...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey, This is a lot of help for the flip. Does that mean it was all done by your friends manually without any crane whatsoever. Congratulations for this big step in boat building. After the next flip they have to just lift it up shoulder high and hold it there while 2 of them lie underneath inse...

Carbon mast extention mounting question

Hi, As you all know I am old and with this old age comes less strength and balance feeling and this is why I ordered a carbon mast weighing 3,4 KG. It consists of 2 three metre long round pipes with a inner diameter of 51 mm which I want to connect them with 60 cm of carbon pipe of 50 mm outer diame...

Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

Hi,
I cannot judge anything about power boats but yours turned out for me like a dream and did you put it to work ( fishing ) already ?

Re: AD-14

Hi, Good that you mentioned these apps I will try using them on my next sailing outing. This will only be when my ordered carbon mast 3,2 kg will be here and I can raise it easily. Have installed Sail Free gps ( free of adverts ) and it works perfect, if I switch to map it shows my home the garage a...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi George, Did you sail all this distance or use the motor a lot ? Yes I lay the mast end exactly at the hole against my wooden contraption and tie a line from it to the mast shoe at the bottom of the boat in front of frame A. This makes sure that the mast end cannot get away from the hole. Here are...
