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

Been working on modifying my bowrail. Wasnít happy with the first attempt so Iíve added a 38mm toprail that cuts through the 22mm existing pipe work and forms a leg as well as adding some extra 22mm legs and intermediate uprights and an extra 300mm to the overall height taking it to 900mm. Much safer and stronger.

Tomorrow Iíll start wet sanding and buffing the paintwork from last week.

Hope you will not badly take my comment as there is no bad intend, but there is something looking "strange" a the forward section of the rail. Not sure if it is the superposed U shape or the vertical posts that are not aligned, cannot exactly say why but looks "uncommon" to me or maybe just the pic, I don't know. Sorry I had to say it

So I collected the railing and took it to meet SOLSTICE. After that I installed the speakers and down lights then began sanding and machine polishing the paintwork in the aft cockpit

Ok looking at the picture I think I know what grabbed my eyes. The vertical post on the forward section, upper and lower, does not look to be at the same angle (meaning not parallel), I think this is what triggered my comment. Not a critic about the amazing work just a comment. I guess I am a bit psycho about these thing but I am the kind of guy that cannot stand a paint not straightly hanged on the wall lol

Yeh I know what you mean. Itís like that because the another intermediates and legs are that angle. Hindsight I should have changed the angle to suit the leg it was closer to. The decision bothered us when we were making the railing but once itís on the boat I wonít be looking at it so will leave it.

This afternoon I carried on with wet sanding and polishing to flatten out the orange peel. Looks good under fluro lights so think it will look awesome in natural light.

Oh, I love to go swimming with bow legged women and swim between their legs, between their legs.

The above was sung on MASH.... It was a one sentence song.... Too bad no one finished the song. Definitely sound like the start of a wonderful WWII song from the UK.

The ol postie dropped off 2 x 320W Sunpower solar panels for the boat today. They are massive panels - 1700mm x 1000mm x 45mm. I also got a SmartSolar Victron Energy MPPT 100/50 Charge Conroller with Bluetooth. This should take care of charging the batteries when the alternator isnít running. Was half the price to buy them from a solar shop in Ballina NSW than it was to buy them here in Perth and thatís including postage!

Lookin' good Matt. I'm not on here as much since I sold Lotus, but keeping an eye on the place, and your build in particular. Just gotta see her in the water. Due to the need to adjust trim with ballast, etc, I don't expect you'll film the actual first splash, and rightly so. Just don't keep us waiting too long, puleese..?
