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

Thanks PM.
Actually Im not feeling better, still got sore eyes. Below is a pic I took today when I went for my follow up appointment with the eye surgeon. He has given me some time off work and wants to see me again on the 28th but I can't spend 11 days sitting on the couch. Plenty of time to relax once AXE is done. In the meantime I will keep up with the morphine and eye ointment and make sure my fingers are out of the way before I use the saw :-)

Thanks for your support mate!

How's your project coming along?

G'day gang. I toddled off to begin working on AXE the right way up in 12 months today. To celebrate, I did the hull extension.

Cheers

Matt

Matt - TY for films!

Damn interesting videos – Ya Flipped Her Again WOW!!! You keep camera so far from the flip so we did not get too scared - lol! Noticed you stayed fair distance too... for most of the flip anyway!

Suggestion: Maybe you already have, but, I'd be careful on some stability bracing for those support poles. Ya just never know... freak storm wind, quake, or....

Heck, that hull addition is like a play area. You could have boat chairs, a hammock, table, beer cooler and BBQ all at once. Or, you could place a small camper there for in-laws!

You're The Man! Get it F'n On!!!

Hey mate. Yeah gave them plenty of distance to do their thing.

Thanks for noticing the stands. Yep agree with you 100% I started making them yesterday but when I was welding them, my eyes started to really play up especially the sore one so I was only able to make two. Once my eyes are back to normal I will make the other two and weld on chains to keep them taught.

I made the rear extension nice and big. Will be great for when I go diving and fishing as equally as good will be sitting down drinking a nice glass of red watching the sunset.

Had a couple of days off due to eye playing up but was able to slip in a couple of hours this morning before the headaches kicked in.

Hopefully get to spend some more time on her tomorrow

cheers
Matt

Okie Dokie
Almost done with the Hull extension and Transom,( is it still called a transom when its no longer the very end of the boat )

Made the Transom door 1.0mtr wide. My mate has a narrow transom door on his boat and not only is it a PITA, its dangerous and a trip hazard so mines nice and big :-D

Sides are coming up and we're moving forward.

Ive had to buy some 3mm ply and laminate them in situ on the hull extension. Too much curve for any other thickness of ply. Little bit of work and I would have rathered done without it, but itll come out ok ... I hope lol

Tomorrow the floors start to go down then the finishing fillets etc get done in the bilge prior to painting
