T37 Build log Hull


2018 04 04
Before anyone starts this build thy need to read this thread and watch the 6 YouTube lessons that Will and Danny have made. I will try to put the link here, if not just google T 37 built in YouTube. This kit is the T37 RC Sailboat Racing Upgrade Kit, Unboxed the kit , you will see most all what is in the kit . Building the hull is the same as the first 55 pages here, so I wont go into it much . Just a few photos. I will do all the work under the deck before I install the deck. So tomorrow I will work on the Keel and rudder.

Building the Tippecanoe T65 #11 "Delphinus"


Will Lesh had to tell me (I wasn't smart enuff on my own to find it), about this thread. I am looking forward to following whatever gets posted and hope to make a few contributions of my own. I have built (3) T37s, a T65, a T47 schooner, a T50, and this week completing T52 hull#36. In 2016 I posted my build blog on T37 maybe before this thread was started.

This post includes a build log of the T65 hull #11. I can honestly say this is the prettiest model boat design ever, and I had a a lot of fun adding some special touches that make her a joy to own and sail. A few pictures are included which Will took while swimming out here in Hawaii with his GoPro, and I extracted a few screen images.

Happy to share my experiences with any Tippecanoe fans! I'd be working right now but the varnish is drying....

T-47 Schooner Build -- TIKI Part 1


I see long ago Tiny Dancer posted his T-47 schooner Southern Breeze, and unknowingly we created a near sister-ship. The tanbark sails add so much to the charm of this salty little boat! Here is a build log in 2 Parts and some details of our "Tiki" which sails waters on the west coast of Hawaii's Big Island. This was a very fun build and I compliment Will Lesh for his creativity in making it simple to build yet appealing to any old sailor that might like a schooner. It sails well and I recommend this project!

Please look for Part 2 in the next post.

T-47 Schooner Build --TIKI Part 2


Some closeups of the rig and Tiki under sail. Will Lesh was a very wet (swimming) photographer and we got excellent screen grabs from his tiny GoPro camera. A pretty boat and a lot f fun! (no wonder Will uses that for his Tippecanoe URL!)

Enjoy
