AD16 Question from Email

Post by Jeff » Mon Jun 24, 2019 8:25 am

This question arrived via email over the weekend: "Hello ! I built an Adelie 16 but I'm not happy with its performance armed in cat, I wonder if it's possible to put a mastreration sloop and whether a drawing of the candles could be provided. Thankful!" Jeff

It probably means that he doesn't like the cat rig and prefer a sloop. The plans show a spinnaker or drifter, a small jib can be used but it's a cat rig.

The cat rig is part of the boat concept, it's difficult to change. It may take a while to get used to it especially if you compare to a standard sloop. The AD14/16 are not performance boats but they are decent cruising sailors, see the reports of other builders.

I would like a more detailed explanation, that translation does not make much sense. Maybe a friend with sailing experience can translate?

Wants a sloop rig and drawings on the rigging.....

Just wandering if it's a gaff rigged cat.....

Maybe a Cat Bermuda rig is what he would like better?!

I dug through my "talk like a Sailor" book and can't find a reference to candles and sails. :doh:
"that it isn't just an ordinary sort of boat. Sometimes it's a Boat, and sometimes it's more of an Accident. It all depends." "Depends on what?" "On whether I'm on the top of it or underneath it."

Maybe ping the guy who is building the C12 in Brazil, or the other one who posted the pics of the completed VG26. Maybe one of them can help you get a more usable translation.
