Noah had a boat building mission too! He got write-up in the Bible!!


Your mission is much more conducive to Having FUN! There ought to be marine magazine that will write-up a story on your incredible efforts once you have splashed AXE!!


"Custom Boat[s] by Matt"


Keep Getten It On - Big Dude!

PS & BTW: Inquiring mind[s] want ta know...

We've read what drove Noah's energy... Now, what is the energy that drives you... besides simply you relish your love for "mind to hand" creating things made from materials??? Your work ethic is impeccable. I've (and I believe we've all) never seen this much passion but into resurrecting any old boat hull for the reality of a 21st Century pleasure cruiser that is happening to AXE!


AXE Luvs Ya Baby!!!

Thank you for the kind words my friend.

What drives me? Hmmm dreams mate. Dreaming of what I can do once I've done. A supportive woman and pride in a completed job and most of all, stubbornness

Matt, I have for the first time Console envy. That is becoming the most beautiful sculpture (Axe) i have ever seen (pictures of) in my life. MAN your ideas just keep getting better. How... Never mind I would not understand if you told me where your ideas come from. Extreme inspiration I am sure. Great to see you still sculpting the AXE! Cheers Mate.

Thanks guys. Appreciate your support. It means a lot. Not sure how I can thank you all but I'm working on some ideas.

After work today I fitted and routed the gloss black acrylic then fitted some of the accessories.

Still have to fit the HDS10, the radio/CD player, the glovebox and a few other bits and pieces.

Matt - Don't forget an obscure covered area for a cigarette lighter or three... today's communication equip and other items could get a charge out of that! - Art

On the side wall under the window. Will be a flush mounted one so it'll just be the lever visible.

Do you have power steering?

I would add a "oh sh!t" handle. Something to hold onto with one hand while steering.

Matt...if you ever give up boat restoration...that nice leatherwork might get you a start in exporting kinky underwear...

Keep up the good work....
