We're all very excited for you and Flic! And, of course... for SOLSTICE too!!


Not sure mate. Going into hospital for an op that will lay me up for a couple of weeks soon. Hopefully December sheíll be done. Given Iíll be in the Phillipines towards the end of the year for a couple of weeks thatís 4 weeks lost in total. She has to be in the piss and working for Australia Day 2020...

Greetings,
Mr. H. Amazing is too mild a word BUT I forgot about the black hull (or am I mis-remembering?). Is the current gloss too shiny for subsequent paint to stick to or will you have to rough it up a touch to provide bite?

No mate you remembered correct. Originally the hull was going to be black but I changed my mind. The black I will be painting are the window struts around the fwd windows and the blending in the side windows.

Looking at that set of bitts, and am wondering if you will be planning to protect that round down of the deck edge from rope burn when mooring and the dock line leads downward?

Oooo, that's gonna look slick. Your windows are gonna wrap around the house like the visor on the Stig's helmet.

I can't remember if you settled on a graphic or design for the topsides, or if you're just going solid ultra-gloss white. Also, what ended up happening with the engine room air intakes? Are they windows now?

Yeah I think that will look slick too. Iíve decided to leave the hull grey and not add any decals yet. Iíll wait till I scratch it and then make something to cover the damage hahaha.

Those intakes are now windows and will be covered by a solid black glass panel

No boat polishing this arvo cause I went and picked this bad boy up. Itís only a couple of years old and was used for two weeks. Rest of the time it sat in a cupboard. Good ol Perth Beer Economy coming through with the goods yet again. Now the boat will have icy cold AC when Iím doing the interior fitout on the boat on those stinking hot days.

Well before the polisher started smoking more than Bob Marley at a 60ís hippie festival, I had the starboard squared away except for a couple of touch ups. Still had a bit of time up my sleeve so I started prepping the bottom rubrail for its nonskid coating.
