Hi Salvatore,
I love this new old video of yours and it shows me so well how one can modify the boat. This means you have cut the top of ring frame B away to be able to walk forward. I think I will copy your splendid idea. Do I have to reinforce the deck some more on the sides ?
Greetings from Karl

That is exactly what I did. Watch the video again and you will see that I reinforced it with timber bars and fiberglass underneath 😊

I looked for a picture of your boat couldn't find any? Like to see some pictures if that is possible, thankyou.

Hi Karl,
What picture are you looking at when you say forward hatch? The ad16 has a larger cabin top my forward hatch is big enough to fit me with life jacket on. This was only after I moved mast position back 1/2 a meter & added a large jib so that the sail to keel area was in balance. I don't suggest any one tries this unless they have a basic understanding of sailboat design.

I get about 4 1/2 knots out of my boat with 4 adults onboard with the increased sail area. Normal speed is about 2 knots in a mild breeze to windward. I am extremely happy with my ad16 she was easy to build and maintain. I have enjoyed sailing her these last 6 years and I. Have zero regrets. She has never thrown anyone overboard and highly recommend her for any one with children or special needs. We enjoy having coffee with cake as we sail along. I hope this answers' your questions.
Kind regards
Salvatore
