Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Wow, I haven't heard of anybody else wanting the AD14. bondo, It's a stealth popular boat. Lots of us bought the plans when they first came out in 2004. You're just the first to be actually building one. I almost started on one 2 1/2 years ago, but things came up and I couldn't devote the time to b...

Re: using Marinepoxy in the basement

Jacques is absolutely right about the SilverTip. Not only does it have the mildest smell, but it takes much longer exposure to start my headache going than Marinepoxy, S3, MAAS or West.

Re: using Marinepoxy in the basement

1. If you're at all sensitive to epoxy you should always wear a respirator and have plenty of ventilation. I'm sensitive enough that I can tell you what brand of epoxy it is based on the smell and if I don't wear a respirator I get a headache from the fumes, so I don't use it in my basement. Not onl...

Re: setting sprit sail

Dale, Glad it worked out for you. I like the way you rigged the 2:1 purchase. Using the clamcleat requires me to tie and untie a knot when I'm rigging. Your way is a couple of minutes faster into the water. On the other hand, the clamcleat lets my non-nautical wife sit up forward and adjust the snot...

Re: cheap canoe weight

1/4" Okoume for the hull and white pine for the rubrails. I also made the fillets as thin as possible (just enough to support the glass without bubbles).

Re: cheap canoe weight

I don't know about lightest, but mine came in at 35 lbs. If I was doing it all over again I might be able to take off a pound.

Re: setting sprit sail

Dale, That's an easy one. You just need to tighten your snotter until the wrinkle goes away. When you're no longer close-hauled you'll have to loosen the snotter. I've found that I can set the luff tension once and leave it alone for the rest of the day, but that the snotter needs frequent trimming ...

Re: Saltwanter's NC16 Fast Build

Yeah, the pirogues go together very quickly. I picked up my CC14's wood Monday morning and had a complete boat Friday night, all while putting in a 40-hr work week. They are really simple boats (but a lot of fun).

Keep us posted.
