Hahahaha yeh something like that

Once I've finished working at height I can split the module into two separate platforms and can also run say 6m long aluminium planks to give me some decent coverage at the 2m high mark. Handy when it's time to install the side windows

Glad to see losing the wisdom teeth hasn`t had any effect. I enjoyed seeing the uncovered AXE in profile.
Are those little birds wrens or swallows? We had swallows try to nest on the boat, they got very upset when we took the boat out. Messy too, but very cute.

Hey Bruce.
Yeh still chipping away mate. Umm I'm not sure what birds they are. To be honest, if it's small and it flys I call it a wren haha. You're probably right tho but either way, they will be getting evicted shortly once they start crapping everywhere. Won't be too hard. I'll just plug up the hole with the downlight once they are all out. Will make sure there isn't any eggs in there.

Trying things differently today. Thought I'd try and skip a couple of sanding steps by chemically bonding instead of mechanically bonding. Filleted with glue/fillet powder, then I laid out some 450gsm tape, then I wet it out with epoxy then I skim coated with sanding filler. Bit trickier to do and is a lot wetter/runnier than doing each step individually but I just saved myself 4 hrs of sanding in the one section alone that I did today, not to mention $$$$ from product waste.

That bird looks like a striated pardalote, Matt.

And your boat is looking like a real beaut!

Mate, you did it again. Remember the pictures you posted when you framed the pilot house fore lights ? It took me several tries to see the correct angles on that framing job.

Looking at your post (#2125 ), I at first think the picture is centered just forward of the pilot house but when I look at the keel, my mind wants to say I'm standing straight off from the prop/rudder area.

It will all come together for me after the launch as those many first day photos come online. Enough of this, I'll let you get back to the Axe.

Matt, it looks like what I call a swallow (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welcome_swallow), but Auscan could be right. They like boats, especially covered areas, best exclude them now before they nest or you might not have the heart to boot them once the kids hatch.

Looks really good Matt.

I especially like the transom lines as seen from the side. The upper cabin lines work very well and the termination of the cabin top ending ahead (a bit) of the top of the transon. Would go well w a metal post slanted the same amount. The only improvement could be possibly to have the sheer break mimick the nice curves of the aft end of the top of the window .. and cabin. Still really like the wheelhouse windows and the sheer break being in that position is good too.

Overall a very nice looking boat.
