Greetings,
Mr. dm. Thanks for that. Never heard it put quite that way before but so true. Mr. H is doing a stellar job worthy of the finest craftsman BUT what I can't figure out is WHEN does he ever sleep?

That's funny Rt.
Funny cause he may be like me in that i sleep little. When i was a kid my mom had me at the doctor's cause she thought i should sleep more. To make her happy i pretended to sleep and would often read with a flashlight under the covers. Four hours is a great nights sleep. Not everyone requires eight hours in a death like state each day to be healthy.
Do you really like those daily slices of death?

Thanks for the posts and discussions fellas. I agree with both of you. If I do get too hung up in the finer detail I'll never get it finished so I do agree with art persŤ however, I do also agree with BF and do take pleasure in people looking at my work and will rather push the start date back a little to get the finish I want. If I rush it, I will pick the errors and it will annoy the piss out of me lol.

RT I sleep mate, I just don't "relax" ... Plenty of time to do that once I'm swinging off the hook :-)

This afternoon i popped down and finished the wing bit. I've got to take the skin back off and add some nogs and precoat with epoxy then glue and screw before trimming the roof back then glassing her all up.

This weekend we are in for some massive storms then rain the whole week proceeding so she's all wrapped up again.

Ok well that's all.

Thanks again for the Comments. I can't thank you enough for the support and the drive you and your comments give me.

:-)

Matt,

Details, details, details. The shadow line created by over laying the frieze over the cabin sides is a smashing detail. It creates texture and depth that will set Axe apart from "home built boats". I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Starboard roof frieze underway, the rear supporting posts removed opening up the rear deck. Also had a visit from the site foreman. Not a bad little effort for the arvo

Hey Matt, there's almost a vague 'Rivierery', (if I can coin the term) look about those side windows there. Which is good because I think they are neat looking boats. Just way too expensive for me, and thee, I suspect.

This afternoon I pulled the Tarp off, roof sheets lifted, insulation added, glue applied, roof sheets refitted and screwed off, cut out for glass roof hatches, sheets sanded ready for fibreglassing tomorrow afternoon/evening

Matt Baby! Looking real good. What's the sq ft on top? Solar energy collection looks like slam dunk. AXE's house bank of batts could become really happy. On other hand great space for clothing optional sun bathing... or... flat out partying - ss hand rails another option - LOL

You've got me breathless again to see your next "creationary" moves for AXE. So glad you are back at it! Eventual launch is going to be kick-ass event!!

Cheers! - Art

Thanks mate. Yeh I'm going to stick the Radome and other bits up there aft and then I'm going to put up 6 x 300watt solar panels with a MPPT controller to regulate the charge. That should be plenty for the batteries.

I'd say it's about time to set up a few chairs in the cockpit and crack open a few cold ones! And once you have the last piece of construction, don't forget to christen it with a bit of Rum to appease ole King Neptune.
Congrats Mat, it's coming right along and you can pat yourself on the back!
