Sorry forgot to add in the post that these pics are of my exhaust flange that was finished today. Will be side mounted. Came up pretty good I reckon

They don't look like grab rails, Matt. They look suspiciously like rod holders. They's something you stick things in that you grab though, I must admit.

Oh bugger, I didn't see that last post until after. However, rod holders are more sexy than exhaust flanges, I think you'd agree..?

Matt me guy - wow... that is some tall headroom. Don's kids could do jumping jacks in your yacht!

By time you get full 7' interior height remaining with thickness of roof structure as well as interior ceiling finish and floor covering added together what do you think... 7'8" +/- to outside top area?

May I suggest a scaled artist's drawing to get pre-glimpse of visuals at completion. You're playing with the beauty strokes now. I believe you built AXE to be a fine lady who wants to wear nothing but the best outfits in compliment her to sexy hull lines.

Hey brother!

Duly noted my friend. CP suggested the cardboard which i like so will do that and go from there. I also like your idea but if I can see it in the flesh then I'll be able to grasp the idea better. If I stay around 2200mm inside then yeah she'll be around 2400mm outside + solar panels etc.

Thanks heaps for you kind words. I really appreciate your time and support. It's a shame we're not living closer. I reckon we'd get along like a house on fire!

Another TF member and I were discussing Renn Tolman's death on facebook last night.It is a great loss to the boating community,especially in the PNW up to Alaska.He was a good man.I have,or had,his book about tunnel hulls that can run in a few inches of water.Very neat design.I did have a copy of his plans for one of his larger skiffs.I hope someone in his family will keep publishing his boat plans and books.

G'day folks.
After a two week layoff (Flics birthday, new car purchase, road trip and rain), I was back into the swing of things which felt great :-)

I went and bought a 30ft tarp so I could remove the roof sheets so I could stand up and walk around with out too much effort and so I can start building the fwd section

I epoxy glued the stem and finished the last run of the 4" exhaust. I dry fitted the flange I had made and I must say, I like it a lot. I've epoxied the cut out but will try and sika it up and fit it tomorrow if the epoxy has cured.

As I start to wrap up this bit of the build, Looking back, It's been a mission to get here and to get some parts I needed which had to be custom made, but it's all paid off I think.

Couple of bits left to do in the bilge like Finish off the painting, fitting the raw water pump slider and a few other bits then I can move upstairs :-)

Well that's all for today.
