Soling 1 Meter Build Blog


I just started a Soling 1 Meter build blog if anyone is interested. There's not much there yet as I just received the boat kit on Friday. I would appreciate some of you old Soling 1M sailors stopping by occasionally and making sure that I'm not doing anything stupid.

Yeah I know. I must have mis-clicked somewhere along the line. I've requested the moderators move me over to sailboats.

I think that you're going to enjoy your sailboat. I used to have one many years ago and I enjoyed it tremendously till I stepped on it. I think that I'll order another one.

One tip that I can give is be careful when you pour your keel. In my case, the resin got too hot and I melted the keel. I think that the directions gives you tips on keeping the keel cool while the resin is curing.

I've heard plenty of horror stories about melting the keel with resin. I'm planning on using the slow cure West Systems resin which should stay cool enough.
