Aldebaran sailboat

I want to place a boat on the list that is not there. What can I do?
Aldebaran 8.15

A sailboat that is build in Friesland the Netherlands during the period 1968-1978. Is there a form to do so?

Hello Ray, Please send any documentation you have on the Aldebaran 8.15 to Then, depending on what you send, we would be happy to add the boat to our database. So you know, we prefer not to use information from For Sale ads as they can vary from ad to ad and often have information which is not accurate.

Hi Bruce,

I am happy to do so. First I need to make some rigging measurements, figures I do not know, and that you need. I cant make the math calculations, maybe you can. I am owner, and will update as soon as I finished the measurements. And an image.

Ok, I did the measuring data of the Aldebaran 8.15 and emailed it to the contact address. Hope it fits.
cheers, ray

This clinker built sailboat in hand lay up FG is build as a finished boat and later also sold as a basic construction, so other builders and owners could finish her off. A principle with a blink to the Swedisch Folkboat, (she is build in the same period), in Friesland the Netherlands.
engine : diesel engine 10 hp Arona AD 185 and others SW: 117 (lower numbers are faster)

It is not so good, used, old, coffee… stains, but maybe it can help!
