    Hello folks, well here we are.
    My new thread and our new project.
    This will be done by myself, my business partner Anthony de Richelieu and his cousin, our apprentice Matthew Ryan.

    SV14 - a sailboat specifically for the disabled community.

    This is the brainchild of Peter Jacops in Thailand, Peter is also from Cape Town. His good friend Alexander Simonis did the design and they were joined in the program by Russell Vollmer who is a very keen and capable quadriplegic sailor.

    We are very happy to get involved with this program as it is going to be a huge challenge and I am sure we are going to learn lots of interesting things along the way. We will post lots of photos and Youtube videos of every step as we go along. The plywood has been ordered and we are waiting now to have it all cnc cut. We are filming that as well and I will post as this gets done, step by step. We are going to get involved with all aspects of this program - building, sailing, promoting and fundraising.

    I am sure that the Boatdesign.net community will thoroughly enjoy this process as it is 100% up your ally. Here are pictures of the prototype being built at Robinson and Caine by Alex. Peter has also started his SV14 in Thailand and I will post photos of that as well

    Good links very good reading:

    Hi Doug there is a good description of the tilting seat arrangement on the SV14 facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/sv14.org/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE&fref=nf

    the tilting seat is for the comfort of the disabled sailor

    this is a picture that they posted of a design
    I am not sure if it would be the final design

    Our CNC cutting will be done next week wednesday 9th November
    we will film everything all the way and post
    this is going to be an interesting series to follow

    another build in Thailand is going along by our boatdesign friend
    http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/profile/taniwha.html

    as well as one in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

    enjoy folks !!!!

    Sv 14

    Hi folks here is the news as it went out this morning.
    I will be more specific with the next posts so that Celebrator and SV14 will not be together but individually - each on their own thread.
    This way you only read what you are interested in.

    Well good morning folks, coming to you live from the beautiful Cape Town here is this weeks video introducing the team to you!

    As you can see we have been VERY BUSY - firstly finding a suitable house was a mission and then moving in is always a nightmare. Getting the multitude of computers and software programs AND wifi internet up and running was a challenge to say the least. Keep in mind all three of us are computer nerds, Anthony of course is the IT grand master, and even then we had our work cut out for us. Filming and editing as amateurs is a daunting task.

    We are working on our next video already and there you are going to see me building our new film studio and workshop in the garage at home. Already this is working out beautifully, because this will be the birthplace of the SV14 that we are going to build.

    And now for the cherry on top - because I now have a cool workshop right next to Celebrator, I can now put the finishing touches to her and get her ready for the first of many sea trials. And yes the old fart is still up to it !!!
    As they say folks, age is but a number, rock on and do it to it !!!

    Oh and just as a footnote, living with two youngsters that are hyperactive is just something else. And that will be a fun story for another time :)

    Oh well guys these things take time but our progress is very good and the boat is starting to look good. This is video chapter 1 and we are already editing video chapter 2 for publication next week. Brilliant design and the videos will prove that. Chapter 2 focuses on the individual components and subassemblies. Enjoy !!!

    here are pics of the CNC cut components
