Hendo-I am late to the party as usual, but really sorry to hear about the 3,300 psi eyewash! Hope all heals well! As said before-enjoy the drugs, they're legal!

Can't wait to see the turnover, for us AXE has been rightside up, now we will see her upside down from Dowunder! Good luck with with the flip!

Matt, just saw this, so sorry, things happen, but it`s tough. Fortunately we adapt well even if things don`t turn out as we`d like. I hope for the best for you.
I`ve seen a brolga, just once, in remote Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk), a Northern Territory National Park. They are seriously big birds but would struggle turning Axe right way up.

Gday all,
Well the flip went very well. I am Very Happy with how it went. The crane driver tells me AXE weighs 3.5T at the moment.

I took my GoPro3+ down and am in the process of uploading it to youtube. Once done I will post the link for those that like to watch that kind of thing.

Oh and I got a call to say AXE's Anchor Chain arrived. I order it through work and paid only a 1/4 of what I would have paid retail. STOKED Now she has a kick arse anchor and now she has 100mtrs of 8mm Galvanised Grade L Rated and Certified Short Link Anchor chain. I will sure be sleeping soundly when at anchor that's for sure

Here are some pics I took today also

However…I must admit I have been known to support the Melbourne Storm, if the Broncs are out of contention - any team but a NSW team….and I'm just an ex Kiwi. It's funny, but I feel more pro Queensland than I do pro Australia. This country's too damn big to properly ID with. Sorry, rant and thread hijack over…now where were we..?

Heya Swampu. Apparently that eclipse happened in Australia too but not Western Australia so I missed out lol. No black box. I am sick to death of hearing about that bloody topic.

Maybe now that the 5th ferry rolled today we will see something else in the news.

Cheers for your comment mate

Regards
Matt

Mr. H. Ah, I see now what I was referring to in post #832 (protuberances) it's the cockpit extension....No worries.

AS ALWAYS – BEAT LUCK TO YA!!

You would not want to haul that lot in by hand. You would end up with muscles in your poop,and just think of the bill if it came by aust post.

Hello my friend! Thank you for your support and kind words. You're really too generous.

The weight of the chain is 150ish kgs and the SARCA Exel is 30ish kgs + rope + windlass = approx 200kgs

hahaha

1 x Carton of beer = 15.4kgs. In the interests of stability, I will need to keep at least 7 cartons in reserve below deck and about 7 up on the party deck ...

Mind you tho, after 7 beers I think the last thing I will be worried about is stability not to mention 7 cartons haha

Great idea to use beer to equalize the weight distribution! I am going to give that a try.

A Queenslander living in Western Australia supporting the New South Wales Blues!

What to make of it?

I must check the earth is still orbiting the sun, we indeed live in strange times.

You do of course know we haven't won a series since JC was a boy.

Glad to see the 'Blue Axe' progressing well, despite the setback. Pete, imagine calling it the 'Maroon(a sought of pink colour) Axe'

Ah ahahaha Pink! Hahaha ... She's defiantly a Blue AXE mate and yep I'm well aware of our ability not to win hahaha.

I hope the Setbacks are behind me now. I'm Not due back to work until the 28th so I will be be able to put a solid 90hrs in to her.

At this stage, I am aiming to have the hull extension and transom finished, the flooring sheeted, the engine access hatch cut, the bilge and sides painted and the engine fitted and aligned. That's the plan anyway. Hopefully it works out
