Keep the Faith! And, as they tongue-in-cheek say for close communications in rural communities of America "Keep It in Your Sneaker! lol

Thanks Buddy! ... Im happy with how she is starting to take shape. Maybe i shoulda called her Onion instead of AXE ...

Glad you liked the videos. Im a massive Country music fan. Some of my favourite songs are boys and girls from your neck of the woods actually but really love our home grown talent as well.

The main guy in the last Video is Lee Kernaghan and is my long time idol and I got to meet him last year.... Ive been following him since I was a kid and got a chance to go backstage and meet him before the show. He was such a great bloke. I took Flic and the boy with me as well. He gave the boy a cap and signed his hat and chatted to us for about 10 minutes. I didn't do much talking. I just stood there and stared apparently ... he must have thought he was meeting someone with a speech problem anyway was the best day ive had and i'll never forget it.

A new thread has been started here to continue the Boat Cote epoxy alternatives. A few posts have been relocated there to continue this topic in a manner so as not to get lost in this thread.

Epoxy Alternatives/split from Hendo's build thread

OK! Dear, Matt

Please come out of the closet and change your TF handle to the correct name... i.e. NOAH! RT has confirmed what we all thought!

G'day to my Friends and loyal followers!

A small update, After sanding, sanding and more sanding, the Port side is now ready for a skim coat of 1:1 Jotun Fine Fairing Filler (the Green one) and then primer so I moved onto the keel.

I applied a coat of epoxy resign then a thickish skim coat of thickened epoxy to level it out a bit and applied the 350gsm glass tape then saturated it in epoxy resign. Im hoping that when dry, it will strengthen it all up and be all sexy times for me .

Anyway that's all.

Cheers

Hendo
