(I hope you enjoy your boat at least half as much as I did my 32.)


Mate she's around 40ft. It started off at 32ft before I extended the hull

No bow or stern thrusters mate. Just a single screw.

Mate I'm blown away by this pic. I show flic and she can't believe how similar it is. Do you have any other pics of her on the hard and in the water? Id love to see them.

G'day folks. Today I Just cracked on with torture boarding the Jotafair then began skim coating with the platinum plus. Been a little while since I last faired any bilateral curves. Took a few goes to get my rhythm back. Getting close to knocking this side off. I can smell the BBQ and beers for the hull party already lol. My 2 cockpit drains and thru hulls arrived today which was a nice surprise. Ok that's it for today. Have a good night

I'm officially a daddy of an Orca. This is where SOLSTICE gets the name SOLSTICE from.

Exactly what do you guys do on your whale child's birthday?? Have more Orcas over for a party... is that a whale of a party you threw in one of the photos?

Bet cha your whale Solstice will be proud to swim alongside your boat SOLSTICE!!

BTW - Couldn't get the images to enlarge for clear read, maybe it's just my computer.


Edit: With the links on this post when punched each one comes in big and clear.

Today is a very significant day and milestone for SOLSTICE. Today marks the end of the construction and fairing of her Starboard side.

This afternoon i finished off fairing the 3M platinum plus and barrier coated the filler using epoxy resin.

Once dry it will be sanded and readied for primer then it's on to the roof overhang above the windscreens and a couple of areas on the cabin roof before that all gets barrier coated and the. It all gets primed then it's on to the Port side 🏻🏻

Video shows fairness in the reflections.
