Matt, my friend - A book can never be judged by its cover alone. You have provided no cover at all.

But rather, instead, on the side of a flat outdoor lot... you are joyously giving us a most incredible trip for keel-up boat restoration. It normally takes oo-gobs of personnel in fancy highly funded and enhanced-machined factories to even come close to what you have done and are doing to AXE - by superior intelligence, sheer gumption... and... it's all being accomplished while flying through this monumental excursion by the seat of your pants!

There is/are no word or wards to accurately depict or describe you and your AXE "Creation".

I can only guess at the workings of your mind and the energy in your bones.

May good fortune consistently lay hands upon your being!

You're truly a wordsmith Art.

Thank you for you kind words and unwavering support during this journey.

I hope one day I get to share a couple of beers with you.

Speaking of books. How's our book deal venture going?!! Lol

Seriously tho thank you for your words of encouragement. I'll be drawing on them during this sanding phase that's for sure!

Hi All,
I am wondering if you would be able to help me please . Im getting ready to order the hardwood to do the Gunwale plank along the topside.

Im going to go wide to enable walking and somewhere to "park ya arse" as well as a nicer "wide chunky" look but I don't want to go too wide and look stupid.


How wide are your gunwales? and would you make yours wider or narrower?


Thanks in advance

Wow - Matt - There are numerous "useable space", safety, and product protection items to take into account. I hope I'm clearly seeing your question correctly and that my answer actually address (understands) what you request.

Can you provide picts of AXE looking from both front to rear and rear to front on the side deck-areas (gunnels) where you are to be constructing/setting your mentioned "gunnel plank".

Don't your currently fabricated dimensions of cockpit and salon and cabin widths in relation to hull's gunnel edge already place the gunnel plank with basic minimum/maximum width? Or are you speaking of extending the gunnel plank over edge of hull and having rub rail protrude past a virtual vertical plane with hull? I don't recommend doing such as I question; i.e., a protruding bottom of gunnel plank - it would be susceptible to damage at docks and rafting with others due to wave actions and verticle up-lifts what could tear the protrusion all to hell.

Gunnel walks on sides of our Tolly taper; not being all the same width. I've never measured but would guess they reach a low of 14" in couple short locations, going up to 24" wide in others. It's easy to do a 360 degree walk all around our tri hull with plenty SS grab rails against salon/fly-bridge and a gunnel side rail everywhere.

Hope picts help with what I say!

1 1/4" x approximately 5/8" tall

No as they seem proportional.

Art- I got the impression that he was talking about just the cap rail, not the width of the walkway or the thickness of the bulwark, right?

I don't have a cap rail, but I do appreciate a nice chunky teak one.

Hello Mate!

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for my non-nautical terminology. Wayfarer is right with the name I think 'Cap Rail'.

I will take some pics tomorrow for you. Aft its about 300mm but stern its 110mm. AXE doesn't have the advantage of having such an awesome walk around like your 'Office' does so anyone wanting to sit front will need to "walk the plank" along the side hanging onto rails along AXE's roof.

I'll take some pics tomorrow

Thanks for the correction and clearing up my terminology mate!

I put new teak cap rails on a couple years ago. I made mine about 5" wide and 1-1/8"
thick ,wide enough to sit on and walk on . I laminated all the bends .

I've had mine about 5 years .I bought it when we had a sailboat . I've only used it a couple times . Seems to be a pretty good machine ,but I don't know anything about sewing ,found that out right quick . I would like to build a big table around it and really learn to use it . I know it's gonna take a lot of practice . Woodworking comes easier for me than sewing . You will be fine with it , dang man I haven't seen anything you can't do .
