Matt, you have exceeded my expectations. As Eric said the shadow lines created by the cabin facia over the large side windows, the rub rails, and the sheer line are pure design. No ornamentation needed.

Here are a few descriptive words that come to mind.

magnificent, sumptuous, grand, impressive, imposing, superb, spectacular, resplendent, opulent, luxurious, deluxe, rich, fine, costly, expensive, lavish, gorgeous, glorious, dazzling, elegant, regal, handsome, beautiful

Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

Test fitting the main rail of the bow rail for size. shape and height as well as the stanchon angles before taking it off to weld them and the midrail on and fitting the stainless cabling. Not sure what everyoneís height of their railings are but Iím making mine 600mm High. This pic shows the height at 800mm but Iíve since decided to drop it 200mm. 800mm is too high and 400mm is too low so Iíll run with 600mm I think.

I think your good on the 600 mm. I measured the railing heights on 4 boats here. The low was 450mm, then 584mm, 635mm and ours is 813mm. The 450mm was smaller express cruiser. The 2 middle sizes look like the most common in the marina in the 34’ to 40’ length boats.

I can't imagine how satisfying it must be to just take ten steps back and just look at her now. There are quite a few parents that are less proud of their children than you should be of that boat. Glad you're back M8.

Yeah I did have a bit of a moment when I stood there looking at her after I finished the primer. Stood there for a solid 30mins just staring. Felt like 10mins tho. Iím very happy with her mate. Iíve been asked a lot lately would I do it again. 100% I would and I donít even hesitate in responding but this time Iíd do it off plans or build a new one from scratch. Making it up as I go has cost me time and money. Iím very glad that this part of my journey is coming to a close but Iíll also be sad and eventually get bored with the extra 45hrs per week I will get back. Itís been like this for 7 years. I do however look forward with excitement of what adventures lie in wait for us and Solstice and the new chapter. I might need to start a new thread for that ;-)

Pouring with rain here today so Iím in my mates workshop making up the bowrail this afternoon. Hereís a sneak peak of whatís been done so far. I still have to drill the holes for the stainless steel cabling then fit it with some crimped turnbuckles and polish it all but Iím getting there.

OMG, Matt, my buddy! 45 hrs. a week for 7 yrs... plus time on your regular job. Be careful of your health... please.

What you have done and are still accomplishing on Solstice [Axe reincarnate] is nothing short of miraculous. What you are is nothing short of fully needed in this world.

Everyone loves your boat and what your restoration on it stands for... but we love you much more than that... So, again I say; Be careful of your health... Please!

Your mate Art

PS: Immediately after posting this I went back to your 1st post... holly shaaaat! What you have done is astounding, magical, profound, and virtually unbelievable. You've got my vote for all of life!
