That's the AIS, they're red because their within' (I think) a 1NM radius and could have a possible collision course.

Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

Had a bit more of a fiddle with the helm this arvo. That's pretty much the end of the construction. I have a bit of fine tuning with the router and sander but should have her glassed, epoxied and filleted sometime over the weekend.

Going out for a fish from 04:00 hrs on Saturday morning. It's the last weekend before the season for the Demersal Fishing Ban kicks in so Flic and I are going to have a bash of the big boys swimming in the deep blue until around 12:00ish. It Will be great getting on a boat that floats and runs on water and not on a hardstand out the back of some blokes house LOL ... Might give us the much needed push in the second half of this project and get AXE over the line before the deadline kicks in.

For any fishos, the below link explains the Demersal Ban

http://www.fish.wa.gov.au/Fishing-an...-Closures.aspx

Today was a bit hectic. We had a fire at work onboard a livestock vessel at berth 1 today. I took my plate and some cutlery up there in hopes of some roast lamb but unfortunately there was no livestock onboard at the time of the fire. Lol all jokes aside, it was madness. Police, Customs, Firies, Ambos everywhere, ships crew not speaking a word of English, fire burning the accommodation block, helicopters, media bla bla bla.

Below link has a video and the story. It's been a bad couple of months at work for my Department. First a vessel snaps it's mooring ropes during a storm and crashes into a train bridge and now this.

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/west...413d66ee9a24ac

Anyway that's it's for today 👍

Everytime I hit a stump while building I just think of this guy in far off distant land that is building from scratch without any plans. Than it puts my 21' boat into perspective. Great progress, like the helm. I will however make an observation, maybe you could help me with the picture. It appears you are installing some instruments on the lower shelf at 90 degrees. If your standing it might not be a thing but if you sit and your trying to read those instruments you'll probably have a tough time. If you haven't done it yet before you drill and commit have some fun and take a seat. Play around with placement and hold a wheel in your hands. Make sure the most vital instruments are visible with your hands on your wheel. Make sure sitting and standing you can see what you feel are the most important.
These is one part of the build that is most exciting, for me, as we get a chance to really picture ourselves and the joy.

Ah we have a new bidder. Hello Sir! Welcome and thank you for contributing to my thread. Hope to hear and see you around here more often. That goes to the silent lurkers also. Less lurking and more contributing. Y'all know by now this is a friendly thread so no excuses :-) LOL

Now, In relation to your question/observation. Yes and No. The bottom vertical panel will house the power steering, the CD/Radio and UHF and HF radios and maybe the remote for the inverter. Not vision critical items.

I do know what you mean about committing then going ohhhh faaark. That should have gone 50mm to the right. That's pretty much the standard of this build mate so will make a nice change to plan something hahaha. A good example was the discovery of the hull hook and subsequent removal and hull extension HAHA. Ahhhh Good Times!!!

I will defiantly take your tip and have a play and see how it goes before cutting holes 👍

Thanks again for your contribution.

Right ... So ... I swung past the AXE on the way home and picked up the routers and epoxy.

The helm has been routered, sanded, glass taped (on the inside faces only) and epoxy soak coated. Tomorrow arvo I'll sand it epoxy fillet the face side only and fill any imperfections, sand and apply another coat of epoxy.

Holy Smokers Matt!!
I see--- Welder Extraordinaire, Master Carpenter, Fiber-Glass Master, Mechanical engineer, Master Cabinet Maker and Budding Designer. Fearless harbor master. You must be about one hundred seventeen years old to have learned all these skills you pull out of your hat. Oh and I got no suggestions, but a lot of appreciation for your craft of boat building. Dreamed one night I was walking around Perth and ran into you,How weird would that be. Don't even know what you look like! You will have stories of your build that will make a sailor proud.
Cheers and good health, happiness to you and yours!

Ha. You're too kind mate, albeit Not too accurate :-) ... My skill knowledge was reflective of a 15 year Australian Army career serving in places like Iraq, East Temor, Afgahanistan, Solomon Islands and Pakistan as a Sapper in the 21st engineers core.

What I look like... Well You aren't missing much mate. Picture a smashed pie and there Ya have it lol ... Yeah look if you ever look at coming to Perth, wait until AXE is done then we can take you out and about 👍 and go fishing. Already have Craigo booked in to do his diving ticket if he and his wife come over!

How'd you get on with that pulley anyway??

LOL I love receiving and reading your posts Art ... I hope that one day we do meet. I reckon we would have such a great time.

I've got no BBQ pics but I do have some dinner pics of them. Flics folks own and run SENOJI Japanese Restaurant in Victory Park. So we took a couple over there this morning. One for the chef and one for the table.

http://www.senoji.com.au/

Flics dad is pretty famous in the culinary fraternity. Yuki recently had Ferran Adiá specifically come in and dine at SENOJI. It Was a great moment to see. Farran is Yuki's idol "so to speak" was great seeing them bowing at each other lol... Apparently it was a big deal. Chefs from all over the world beg to have Ferran eat their dishes but he chooses who he wants when he wants.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferran_Adri%C3%A0


Im on a good wicket. Got an awesome gal and an awesome set of in-laws that make awesome food :-)

This was flics first ever snapper so she was so happy to have finally caught one.


Here is Yuki and Ferran

Ok, Matt Your resourcefulness gets you on top of the curve solving the building problems. Still, I see some jam-up good work going on there. Great looking fishing results too. You got a happy looking gal there too. You are definitely living right my friend!
On the pulley I got a old former dock mate who owns a machine shop to bore it, sleeve it, cut new keyway and add extra set screws in it. He does bang up work got if fit very snug on the shaft. That problem seems solved. Only cost me a bottle of Jack Daniels! Our favorite whisky of course living only an hour away from the distillery up in Tennessee.
Thanks on the invite, My gal loves to travel and drags me all over. I complain lightly but always enjoy new adventure and seeing other people and their culture is always fascinating for me too. I have been planting the seeds to venture down under not getting there just yet maybe I can follow her to china next year and Australia after that. Will have to experience SENOJI. WOW what presentation. Thanks for sharing that part of your life too.
Cheers mate, keep your gal happy. Looks like you two were made for each other.
Dave.

Hi Dave,
Glad to hear the pulley got sorted mate.

Well if you and your lady make it to Australia and happen to swing into Perth then we'll look after you guys and your bellies ;-)
