Did you import it from the US or buy it in the UK?
The Soling 1m is a nice boat and the keel is perfect for slipping over pond weed.

Looks nice Tony.
Are the spars wood?
Is there just one rig available
or are there measurements for a heavy weather rig?
I suppose at the price all servos/winches are left up
to the individual.
