Kind of mate. That handle is for something else but just placed it on there to see how it looked. I might get on the pipe bender and custom make a couple of grab bars. Was thinking I will make them the full length of curve of the helm station. Think they will look great running down either side

That would look neat. Try standing at the helm and see where you find comfortable to hold on. In real life, it can be for several hours at a time so needs to feel natural but give plenty leverage.

Yes, Yes, Yes! Just make darn sure they can withstand the weight of a Rhino. If you ever get into really bad conditions it might not only be you holding tightly onto one of the bars for dear life...

Yeah I'll make them out of 18mm stainless tube and tig weld some 4mm plate on them as feet then fix them to them helm with 50mm M8 stainless coach bolts.

I'll have to put some thought in for other places to put grab handles throughout the cabin including the toilet and shower

Toilet grab bars are particularly important the morning after fish tacos.

Last external ply piece fitted. Not quite like the Britannia's timber plug but I'm wrapped and I still feel like superman nevertheless. Really stoked

Ok so swung in for a couple of hours after work today.

I applied a coat of bote cote and started filling the screw holes.

The bote cote epoxy was so hard to mix. It was like mixing cold honey. The cold temps aren't helping me so might have to breakout the heat gun to thin out the epoxy before rolling

Cheers all

Bote cote, honey, and women have similarities... can get hard to stir-up when too cold. Can flow real nicely when warm. Amazing how much things are alike - LOL

I've read this whole thread and despite having only just joined I still believe this build would probably outshine virtually anything here.I just can't get over the efffort you have put into this boat.I did work on the police Halvorsen,"Nemesis",and that cost in excess of 500k to refit,but the Axe blows that into the weeds.Guess that's what you get when you don't lose sight of the goal.Awesome work,mate.
