From what I read in some posts re the weight of this sewing monster... shipping cost may be a prob from TN to SF, CA

I've not had opp to look into prices... what's a +/- cost for the ones you guys have? Are you all working with same model?

Linda and I plan to delve into reviewing this brand soon in future, on the net; this weekend maybe.

Ok so today I went down and worked on the transom. I removed the door I made. I've been thinking for a while that's it's going to be too heavy. With a listing boat and a 8-10kg door swinging around might cause some damage to herself and people on her so I removed it. Will put a 20mm thick one flush mounted on the outside instead.

I got home a painted the cut out in the table just for you Craig :-)

Art - last couple of pics are yours mate. The gunnel has a sweep (bow) in it ... Yes on purpose, unlike the keel issue last year lol. Aft its 100mm and fwd is 300mm. I'm thinking I might go from 300mm and taper is aft to 200mm. I won't follow the sweep(bow) I'll just make it straight. I think that should look ok. What's your thoughts mate?

Matt – Thanks for picts!

That appears a tight arsed gunnel for walking to be sure. Seems that really good hand rails will be needed all along the way. I can't clearly judge what sweeps, angles, or straight lines you should use. Have to leave those choices up to you. Although you provided picts I requested… any chance of a profile side pict of AXE; back a bit so transom and bow show their boat-side angles and sweeps. I know you have rain there and removing/replacing cover(s) might be big hassle, so no pressure from this end for profile pict. Also, even with a profile I may not be able to offer really constructive suggestions. There may be those in TF that can though.

Your project is taking shape in a most glorious fashion. Don’t look back me Matey - - > Full steam ahead!!

Cutting and sewing patterns is like working inside out, upside down, and backwards. It is mind bending.

Howdy. This afternoon I used the last of my 450 gsm glass tape on some of the transom joins. I also picked up my handrails for the helm.

Kinda happy with them. Need to do some work on the tags where they were welded. Not 100% happy with that area but really love the look of them as a whole.

Nice and sturdy grab rails.
