May I say that you have extraodinarily good taste. Great color scheme.

Matt, the finished product is always in the mind of the creator. I had no idea where you have been headed with the design. Thanks for the insight to where you are going. It will have a clean modern look. I knew it would be nicely done, but this will be outstanding.

Hendo, I have a dark blue hull and although I have deck canvas shielding the boat from the sun, it gets hot. The sun hits the hull twice, once directly and once by reflection. You can feel the difference (which is huge) just with your hand, touching the hull and then the white deck. I have worked in your neck of the woods and it gets pretty warm and just wanted you to consider this. Now would I change my hull to white, heck no....it looks to cool LOL

No; thank you! It was Moonstruck that took my eye and that I wanted to use some of her detail in mine, colours being one of them 👍

Haha yeah mate. She'll get plenty of heat I'm sure. Everyone I've spoken to says they are hotter but Sometimes ya do what looks cool, not smart; case in point my sleeve tattoos haha.

Anyway Matt, that's why you're carefully insulating the inside of the hull where it matters right..? Black does really look nice, and it's not that different really in terms of heat penetration. More gets in windows than through hull material anyway, then you will have insulation as well.
Look up the Clipper 30 over here somewhere called Shipshape - she was repainted in black and looks phenomenal.
The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)
Cheers,

Thanks mate. Framing is quick. It's the epoxying and fairing and sanding that's the anchor in this process 👍

Tell me about it. I had a little soft spot by my hawser that I figured I would fix before it got bad. Kept cutting until I had the whole bow deck out. Replaced it with fiberboard, then epoxy and now using gelcoat and fairing it. my 2/3 day project is in it's 4th week. The good news is when I am done it will never need doing again!

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

Finished putting down the flooring panels and hatches today.

The hatches are 6mm plate and found it was a better flush finish, quicker, cheaper and easier to just screw the hatches straight to the floor and add a 6mm layer of ply to the existing floor than it would if I were to router around out the opening to allow the hatch to sit flush.

I put roof sheets up but forgot to take pics of that. Will get some on the weekend.

I screwed off one section of the flooring and marked out for the lounge/bed.

Pic 1....the discovery. 2.Initial glass repair. When the original (sheets) anti slip was installed, the idiots used a Stanley knife to cut the shapes and sizes they wanted, with the piece in place. This cut went through the original glass and although painted, allowed moisture to eventually get in. The damp followed these cuts perfectly. All the antislip with removed the damage repaired and the whole deck expoxied. The gel coat is used as a filler and is almost all sanded off again. Still needs to be primed (Hi build two part) and then epoxy primer (554) and finally roll on antislip (maybe Kiwigrip?)

Good job mate! That certainly won't need doing anytime soon! I've used and love KIWIGRIP. There's another product called treadgrip. Not used it but comes highly recommended.

G'day,
I cracked on again today. This time I was lucky and had some help. Flic came down with me 👍💏

I set Flic loose on the tools and she made the lounge/fold out bed. She's did a great job!

I left her to it and worked on the roof. I unscrewed the sheets I put on yesterday, moved them all aft and rescrewed them. I was laying in bed thinking about the roof and decided it would look better with a curved roof line to match the hull extension so spent all day working on that. I nogged out the two roof hatches in the main cabin and While I was doing that I saw I had to put in more trimmers because the sheets moved aft so that threw them all out. Not to worry cause the roof looks better curved.

I started screwing of the sheets and got them all done except for the outer most edges but was getting late so decided to pull the pin and go home for a well earned beer👍

Well that's all. Not long now till lock up.

Gotta love the arrow showing which way is up in that last picture
Good looking mate! I mean looking good mate!
I checked out that Tread grip (thanks) but think the Kiwigrip is better (except the price)
