Hendo,

I saw this a couple of berths down from me, and thought it was about the same length as Axe. It got me to wondering what you have in mind for the topsides?

Hey mate! ... Thanks for the pics. I've always had this in my mind since day one. I love it to bits. I'm thinking along the lines of the integrity 340 and done items of the 440

Hendo,
Thanks for all the posts on your build. I mean re-build. At first I was expecting to see your project fizzle like so many projects do. But much suprise to me you seem still steaming right along. Congrats, I have been amazed to see all of the input from other enthusists on aspects of your build and your gratious encouragement for suggestions. Keep up the good work and many of us, from the looks of the viewers, will continue to cheer your progress. Cheers mate from "Over here". Toolbuddie

G'day mate.
Cheers for you words of encouragement. Yeah look I'd be lying if I said I hadn't tried to chuck the towel in (more than once) but through the countless personal messages and emails I get from contributors, gives me the drive and inner strength to carry on.

I'm overwhelmed by the support and ideas that are given to me as well as the friendship I am lucky to have gained.

I will continue to encourage positive participation in my project. I have had my arse saved on several occasions from mistakes I've made being bought to my attention and will always be thankful for that. I may not always take the advice given, but I can guarantee I have taken it into consideration and thought long and hard before moving on.

I'm glad you are enjoying my thread and hope you continue to contribute.

Thank you again for you kind words of support.

Regards
Hendo

Lol oh look I've always wanted a FB mate. I would dearly love to chuck one up and in the early stages drew up some rough plans of an enclosed FB with a single steering station but alas, my little engine doesn't have enough poke to get me up on the plane and steering from up top wouldn't be too pretty in a choppy or swelly sea.

I'll just have live vicariously through you and your ship :-)

I really love the look of this vessel. Having no fly bridge is a huge plus in my opinion.
Very nice...

I agree totally. With decent design, you have the best of both worlds from a lower helm or pilot house. Flybridges require so much extra duplication of everything, for little gain in my view. That Integrity 380/440 is a lovely craft.
You then have all that lovely top surface for solar panels, water collection, radar/radio tower, etc, and still minimal issues getting under bridges.

Yeah, yeah, I know - there are folk who drive 95% of the time from up there. That's fine, you just keep doin' what you're doin', ok..? But when the goin' gets rough…you better have a lower helm...
