Today is the last day before I head on holiday for a bit. Did some more of the same today. When I get back I'll lift the scaffold and do the cabin and roof frieze before going on to the bow.

Definitely good for efficiency and comfort. It does come at a cost of living space in the bow from the extra volume of a fatter entry.

Gday Dave.
How are you mate! ... Great to hear from you. Yeh holiday was great. Arrived home last night. Still have my sea legs tho. Flic and I are slowly swaying which is funny.

We swam with Manta Rays and did some great fishing.

I'll post pics in the coming days once I download the GoPro footage etc.

Sounds weird but I can't wait to sit on the deck of SOLSTICE in my trackies and uggies drinking tea listening to the rain.

So is the steed on the hard for yearly maintenance or another issue?

Love the sound of the BBQ mate! Post up some pics!

Matt, ask Michelle to show you a pic of the fish she caught yesterday, I think it was a sardine but not as big!

Man that looks like fun, been awhile since I jumped in the water for fun. Might have to break out the hooka and dive the boat but look the other way for once!
