Is the soling kit all you need to build one (other than glue and tools)? (the ~ 145 kit from… um, victor?)

Yes, the only things you need are paint and glue. It has the plain fittings which are good. You can get all kinds of upgrades from various suppliers, if you want. The stock set ups work very well because they are light weight. Terry Ryan's boat just barely came in at 10 pounds. I added fiberglass cloth keel reinforcement and ply bulkheads to the keel and rudder mount areas to make it a bit more durable. It's a good one design boat where the skipper makes the difference.[br][br]

 James, I came across this while surfing for a potential rescue boat. What type of work boat is this? Randy[br][br]
Dunno, but I would love the prop.

I think it's one of those German "raebosch" props.

This Saturday, the 25th of June, I am meeting with Terry Ryan and we are going to sail our Solings at the Harper Lake Model Yacht Club Circumnavigation Regatta. It will be in Louisville, CO and we'll take some photos! It is open to all classes of sailboats. There should be about 30 boats there. www.hlmyc.org

If anyone cares, I will probably go down to Confluence lake tomorrow,Saturday, somewhere around 11 a.m. and try my sailboat again and probably my clumsy airboat.

Jim, I would like to join you, if that's OK. I need to go sailing and clear some cobwebs out. Randy

Here we go again. Just got a notice that my niece from California is coming to visit tomorrow, and I don't have any idea what will be happening or for how long. So I probably will not be going this monday either. It would have been a chance for our wives to meet too, but I guess not this time. Sorry. Jim
