  • Riddle of the Sands is indeed in my library. Also movies, some even German made! Aart 2017-01-01 14:27 GMT+01:00 tony08baker@^$1 [privateer20] < privateer20@^$2 > : Hi Aart, When I studied you pictures again it became clear when I knew what I was looking for. You must be a great fan of the classic novel The Riddle of the Sands if the Wadden Sea is your cruising ground.

  • Hi Tony, Indeed my achor is a plough type, and it is always stowed on the bow roller. As you can see on the photo I mailed, there is a small line around the anchor to secure the anchor there. (Since I never anchor on rocky grounds in the waddensea I almost never use a tripline.) Hope this helpes. Aart 2016-12-29 19:57 GMT+01:00 tony08baker@^$1 [privateer20] < privateer20@^$2...

(If I fit a spurling pipe on the foredeck?)" yes you can, I use it exactely as you described. With not only the chain in but also the rest of the cable. See the photo's Regards Aart 2016-12-26 18:34 GMT+01:00 tony08baker@^$1 [privateer20...

  • Hi Oliver, Since I am not at home at the moment I can not give you teh measurement. End of this week I can give you a measurement if still needed. I would tent to the shorter length. At my boat indeed with the furling gear underneath there is hardly enough space. Aart 2016-12-09 12:22 GMT+01:00 acapella13934@^$1 [privateer20] < privateer20@^$2 > : Can anyone help me with the...

  • Hi Oliver, I do not think that they have been build in Holland, It woud have meant two sets of moulds.However, it is possible that after Small Craft broke, some unfinished yachts have been sold. On my privateer there was a plastik chip popped to the back of the cockpit but I could not read it and now it is already completely crumbled. The round badge is still present! Aart 2016-05...

  • Hi Oliver, I scanned the documents I have, It might be useful for somebody. The documents are from different times? 1974 is printed on page 3 but somebody wrote1978 on page 5. Note the differences in weight! Pages 1,2,3 and 4 are from Botencentrum het Anker in Waalwijk. Whereas page 5 and 6 are from Flevowerf Kampen. (as can be seen by the margins.) How can it be that the weights...

  • In a Dutch brochure of 1978 I have the weight is given as 560 kg with a ballast of 30%. However in the same brochure the gaff version is given 665 kg with no ballast mentioned.
