Salvatore, did you work on that rudder?

PS: the boat looks great.

Hi Jacques, Yes, but the timber was not quite thick enough and there was a concern that it would crack, I added two stainless steel bars one on either side and it works perfectly. The boat has gone out some 50 to sixty times (i have lost count) I am very happy with her. She is a beautiful boat and I always get comments from other boat owners.

Hi Karl, in this picture you can see the bottom of the motor just touches the water in the up position.

Question from my Google account:

A very nice build. Is there room in it for a potti?

Yes there is, I built the floor lower than plan so that you can sit on it with cabin hatch closed.

I also added a map/cooking table on the other side, my feet fit comfortably in the lowered cabin floor area an I sit on a flat section over the centerboard that George suggested I add to prevent slipping when entering the cabin

Hi,
Yes I can conform there is room for a porta potti in an AD14 or AD16. I did it a bit different than Salvatore.
I left the floor at the planned level but made 2 hatches with lids one can open to put the 2 feet in the floor and then one can sit like this:

and this is how the floor looks at an early stage:

Hi Salvatore,
Thank You so much for this new video, for me still building the boat it is so informative to see such a close up video because on no plan one sees the sheets and the fittings let alone the sail in action. I think I will make myself also such a chart table and use it mainly for coffee. Did you make it to fold away or is it fixed ?
