Adelie16 from a land down under

Post by Salvatore » Thu May 15, 2014 4:29 pm

Hi all,

I have started building Ad16 and I am absolutely loving it.

I have placed some images in the builders Galleries. Don't know how to place them here

The forum site has been a great help to me, many thanks to all that posted info on Adelie 16 and adelie 14

Nice looking work Sam. I enjoy seeing pics of the build process and you are off to a good start. (I see some interesting mods) Love it. Oh, and I think you should start this boat's thread again under builder's progress. Way to go! Btw if you haven't installed "D" frame yet we should have a discussion about the AD cockpit.

I have been using a free Photobucket app recommended by someone on this site. You might try a search to see what others do. Please, work out a way because I would enjoy seeing how your boat is coming along.

Really nice looking work Salvatore. I see high quality materials and a high quality hull. I see some mods I'd love to hear about. You've brought the bow to a "point". Is that another frame in front of "A" frame? No 1/4 berths/nice under seat storage? Cockpit seat backs? Very cool.

bringing the bow to a point was easy, i added a few inchs to the top end of the side panels before I had cut them out. The extra frame is to support a short proper bowsprit for a jib, I am not interested in spinikers so I am not doing the plastic pipe that comes out at an angle. The centerboard case is squared off so I can place a small SS winch on it to lift the centerboard. The lower cockpit seat is because I stand 5ft 3" and the normal planned seats would be uncomfortable for me and I don't need the under seat sleeping places. The back rest idea I stole from "arizona builder" from his AD16.
