Anywayyyyyyyy. AXE update. Jumped on the Hendo mobile and went down and skinned the hull extension and got it ready for glassing tomorrow. Can't wait to do the glassing. I'm sure I'll get over it pretty quick but I've been aiming for this step for months and months but the weather kept stuffing it up. I'm happy with the size of this extension. It also helps me answer where I can put my tender when underway lol Ok we'll that's all. PEACE!

Routered the chine rail, installed some struts and Started glassing today. Yaay :-D ... I've glassed before (rudder, battery box, and a few small items) but nothing on this scale. Certainly nothing 12mtrs long in one hit. I had a few holy sh!t moments and felt a bit overwhelmed at times but sucked it up and pushed through and got good results. I laid up 195gsm fibreglass cloth on the main section of the hull and laid up Double Bias 450gsm fibreglass tape on the chine area. Massive overkill but should be nice and strong.

Well that's all for this week. Monday tomorrow so back to work for another week. Cheers all
Regards
Hendo.

Wow - what a project. Never mind Hendo, you know what they say…the steeper the learning curve, the faster you gain momentum, so the faster you learn. Actually I just made that up, but I think it's right…good luck with all that...

The best way to upload pics via a PC is through photobucket or via an iphone is through the trawler app.

Thanks for your questions but If you have to ask why then you won't understand the reason but to answer, Yes. It would be easier to buy one already done.

Hi Hendo,

Yes some just don’t get it, I have on a regular basis checked in on your progress, the passion you show inspires me, the condition of the boat when first started, the great surprizes with removal of every panel, the conditions that you have to work in , the ongoing challenges, wholly great bananas look how far you have come.

Anyway as a bit more inspiration, I have also noticed along the way you have shared your thoughts and experience on our anchors from using them, people with such determination to get the job done really do inspire me, because of all my above comment I would like to donate you an anchor upon completion, if this is alright of course.

Merry Christmas to all.

Regards Rex.

Well Hendo, what a great offer from Rex. You, your family, and Axe, have been through a tough year, a gesture like that is a wonderful reflection of the spirit of Christmas thought, and a big encouragement with the job, in the context of everything else life presents to us.
Happy Christmas to you, congratulations to Rex for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Axe will be a fine vessel, even better with a new anchor on the bow.

WOW Rex ... I don't know what to say ... I mean, Thank you obviously, but that doesn't seem to cut it ... Ive been a owner, fan and vocal supporter of Super SARCA and SARCA EXCEL anchors for a long time and when the time came to purchasing an anchor there was only one anchor that I would trust to hold my darling firm to the sea floor.

I am glad I inspire you and hope that more people get out and get stuck into something outside of their comfort zone. Im gratefull for your support and for reading my posts. Its hard to tell who actually reads these and who follows them

Your words and the words of all of AXE's supporters mean a lot to me as I read these posts to give me inspiration when im feeling blah ...

I am left wonder how I can help you Rex. I am more than happy to have SARCA or Anchor Right Signage on AXE as a reflection of my gratitude.

I showed Felicity this and she did the whole lady thing and got teary and asked me to pass on her warm thanks ... She also jokingly told me to hurry up and finish AXE before you forget your extremely kind offer hahaha ...

Again, thank you Rex for your generous offer, your continued support and we wish you very warm Christmas Greetings from our family to yours

Kind Regards
Matt.

Lovely gesture Rex and I think well deserved.
Merry Xmas to You and the Axe family.
I will be thinking of you all whilst I work but I will be home boxing Day.
Cheers and Merry Xmas once again.
Hendo keep the faith.

Damn nice of you Rex!

You must look just like Santa in full dress!

I'm sure Matt, Felicity and family will stay well snug with your SARCA Anchor. Tiz a wonderful item you provide for helping Matt make sure he ASAP gets AXE ready to use your gift.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and all!

Hendo-From way up here in the PNW, I have thoroughly enjoyed your sharing your rebuild with us. I know it has been in turns enjoyable and frustrating for you, but it has been a great project and very interesting to follow. I admire your tenacity and the work you have put in. Great to see that at least one of us can express appreciation in a very concrete manner.

Best of luck to you and yours Down Under this holiday and best wishes for many happy days on the water in the future!

Well, that went well. Almost made me teary - well, actually it did just a wee bit - screen sorts blurred there for a minute or two. Anyway, lovely gesture Rex, and as Bruce and I have both given it our mod blessings, you're damn right, there is NOTHING wrong with that gift.

And a damn fine Excelent Xmas to Y'all.

He, he, that should put a bit of a burr up Hendo's 'you know what' to charge into finishing Axe ASAP..!
Do you hear what I hear…no, it's not sleigh bells in the snow…c'mon…he lives in Western Australia, it's stink in' hot there now…no we hear a sander going flat out methinks..?
