The original engine was not in the boat when I bought the hull. So I had the possibility to install an inboard again or...

Re: need to turn boat upside down any advice

Hi Doug, why do you want to turn it? As I painted my boat last christmas I took europallets under the foils. So I could work anywhere at the boat and I only had to use a pallet truck and two racks with flooring sleepers. Otherwise, if you realy need to turn the boat buttom up it is possible to do it...

Re: Photo of hoisting point

Oh thank you, that hoisting point is removed by former owners. The iron sheet around is very rusty and I think because of that they removed it. My plan is, to screw to anchor plates (200mm x 200mm) at the bulkhead wtih M12 screws and in the middle of the plates I will attach one of the hoisting poin...

Photo of hoisting point

Hi there, may anyone post pictures here, how the hoisting point in the front of the boat is build? In the documentations of the volga 70, there is only the small passage, to use the hoisting ropes, which are delivered with the boat. In Fig. 2 of the manual is shown the eye-bolt between bulkhead 5 an...

Re: Just bought this!

Hi,
Are you shure you have Production number 1?
I am told, the number you can find on the rear wing, on the right side of the middle Support. There it should be stamped.

Good luck with the boat.

Re: Measurement of front wings

thank you for the link. I already studied that side and there are so many interesting tips. I think the data in the paper regards to the angle of the wings against the baseline. Or did I read it in wrong way? I need the sweep back of the wings. Meanwhile I borrowed an instrument from a friend. The a...

Re: Volga Rachetta ll on the river Rhine end of project

Hi Eduard,

nice project und looks very good on the river. Hope I will end my work this year too.
What speed do you reach against the stream'? And what does the engine consume?

Best regards
