Matt, Matt, Matt - I'm so sorry to hear if your injury! I wish you speedy and full recovery. Let AXE set for a while as you get well. Good boats are like good dogs... they will wait patiently for their master to return.

Relax, take pills to reduce pain. Plan in your mind's eye what you can eventually have AXE become!

My prayers to you!

Your mate - Art

Sorry to hear mate. Glad it all worked. Thanks for your support.

Here's hoping for a speedy and complete recovery.



Best to you, Buddy.

Thank you Mr Moonstruck. Appreciate your concerns, advice and support. All will be fine.

Thanks again my friend.

Matt

Like they all said, Matt, take care and get well soon.
I just got an email from Rex, thanking all for their concern, but he won't be making the Sanctuary Boat Show this year.
Now you have had a mishap. Might be time to slow down a bit, get recovered, then head on in. Could the boat flip be postponed, or does it not matter..? I guess the second epoxy coat could be done right side up anyway..?

Hey Bud, I feel for you. 3300 psi can do some nasty s*@%!

Put the feet up for a while, and enjoy that morphine (but not too much).

Thanks AC. Just a couple of sore eyes. She'll be right mate. I rested for a couple of days so all good. Cranes are coming tomorrow so have a bit to do today to get her ready. I would have loved to have three coats of High build primer on her but have to settle to have one on her prior to flipping.

I have bought a new spray gun since my other one is clogged up. Instead of buying the same airless type, I bought a 10ltr pressure pot so should be easy enough to spray upside down so shouldn't be an issue applying two more coats in a week or so once I can see 20/20 again

Thanks again for your support and we'll wishes mate

Regards
Matt.

Greetings,
Mr. H. Beautiful lines but upside down. Oh right you're in Australia. Refresh my memory. What are the protuberances aft at the chine line? Probably somewhere in the previous 800 odd posts but....Just so you'll recognize this when it shows up in your yard...

Hello Mr Firefly. Sorry but I don't understand your question pertaining to Protuberances aft at chine line.

Yep the Brolga is something that we don't have yet, however we do have emus.

Oh I think I know what you're talking about. Are you looking at the uprights on the corner of the hull extension? If so, they are just there for support. I made them long for ease of construction. They will be cut down once I determine the height of the extension mate.

Greetings,
Mr. H. The Brolga is a CRANE is it not? Aren't you hiring one for the flip? Unless they stand 9m high, I think you'll need more than one.

The Brolga is also known as an Australian crane, although they don't have them out in sandgroper country. I think their legs are too skinny for much of a lift anyway. I'd suggest using the Freo Dockers although the Adelaide Crows are have been better with turnovers this season.

Hahaha nice mate hahaha. I'm originally from QLD so my code is NRL. I'm a huge "Storm" fan. Don't ask me why. I'm a QLDer that follows Melbourne and supports the NSW Blues in State of Origin. Flic is a massive. Dockers fan so it's hard not to get into it, no matter how much I try and resist lol.
