Nice looking kits, very impressed! I have built a Soling 1M. What would be a nice compliment to add to my marina?

Shadows, looking forward to watching your boat come together

i have the deck on and most of the rough sanding done . Now for the hard stuff i think . It uses venner strips to cover the top edges of the deck . You have to steam them and bend them to shape . I have have never done this before , Ive read the instructions a bunch of times and i think im ready to try it . I also bought the kit to do the whole deck in veneer strips so i hope this works out well

this part was tough . the edge mahogany strips are drying and the bow point is on . I have to wait till tomorrow now and then start sanding . I think i will finish most of the rest now before i come back to the rest of the mahogany decking

Default RE: T-37

I recently finished a T-37. I believe the web site said 10-12 hours avg. build time plus a couple of hours for the deck kit. It took me about 80 hours including paint, varnish, and ~15 hours for the deck kit. I guess I'm kinda slow but then I had almost no model building experience. I found that the best and easiest way to install the deck kit was to use thinner pins (not the plastic top thick ones) with needle nose pliers. It requires LOTS of pins.

Just finished my second T-37. I agree use lots of streight pins and with pliers. I did my deck by laying the pieces inplace dry without glue, cutting to length and taping the top side then pealing back the wood strips and tape inplace leaving a portion of tape inplace to act as a hinge. Once a section was complete peal back applie glue and pin inplace. Here is the deck on my first boat..

hows she sail?
With limited sail time so far, it's ok but downwind performance could be better. A number of things could be tried to improve it. I plan to make a bunch of rigging changes and see how she does. I haven't sailed both together but I think my 32" Nirvana II is faster.
It is a good looking wooden boat though hanging on my wall, especially since I built it.

How about some pictures of your boat, preferably on the water?

One of the reasons of this section not being so lively is the fact that most sailors rather sail their boat than write about it, at least I do...
