Hendo I very much like your avatar too. I've always found propellers beautiful. At least most of them. Go figure .... they're of a boat right? Some anchors are beautiful too. Meanwhile fenders, winches and bow pulpits and lots of bow railing not so beautiful as in visually could do very nicely w/o.

Hi Eric.
Yeah I'm the same mate. I have an unwavering attraction to props. Tho I have to admit, I also really like vertical windlasses without the capstan on top of the gypsy.

Hendo, what you are doing is a bit like the boating equivalent of that TV program, (on ABC1 at times), called 'Grand Designs', and they always go over budget and over time, so don't fret...it's just par for the course.

Removed the bow panels after trimming for final fit. Cut and fitted another couple of ribs to the bow then prepped the ribs with epoxy. Mixed up a heaps of epoxy glued the panels and screwed them all on. Also started filling the joints and started filleting the hull/keel join.

Personally I couldn't care less if they can or can't play but It'd sure be fun watchin!

Hendo you're right some anchor winches are very classy looking.

What kind of epoxy are you using?

When you decide you need a car are you going to strip down a 1949 Dodge to the frame and rebuild and reassemble? I'll enjoy the blog on that too.

No time at all. Just come over in a boat and they'll give you the works.

Hi Eric,
Mate I'm using Bote-Cote epoxy system. Aussie made epoxy with no thinners which is awesome because the molecules in thinners are bigger than a water molecule and when the thinner evaporates when it dries it leaves small worm type holes in the epoxy allowing water to seep in.

Hahah nah mate. No more car rebuilds. I've done a complete rebuild on a Holden ute about 9 years ago. Stripped her down to the chassis, had it acid bathed and powder coated then rebuilt it.

Here's some progress pics from today.

Jeeeze, Hendo, that's pretty cool, is there anything you can't do with you hands...on second thoughts don't answer that, it could lead to the mother of all thread hijacks...

Gee Matt, what great versatile work. Wow!
For Ben, a late update on residency. Things just took a turn, our Prime Minister, who just "removed" the one who "removed" him 3 years ago, made a few changes. Ok arriving from USA, preferably by plane, but arrive by boat with no Visa, you`re banished forever to a remote island in Papua New Guinea, a place where our Govt. warns us it is not safe to go.
Enough politics. Ben, I`m sure you`d be welcome.
