The heat exchanger was beyond repair,and I renewed the oil coolers as recommended at 2000hr.What did you spend on rebuilds?
Way more than that. Wish I had been given the same advice. My heat exchanger is cast iron and weighs a tonne.

Sure wish I could get mechanical work like that done here.
Unfortunately, it would cost as much as I paid for the whole boat and I am not sure I would trust most of the flunkies around here to do it right.

They looks So good that now you will have to do the rest of the engine like this.
Hey mate. Thanks. They look the goods! but after bruces comments im feeling ripped off. Yeah plans are to do the whole engine when she rebuilt :-D

They even gave me some paint to do it

There were whiskeys made here, until recently their best use was drain cleaning. Now there are traditional whiskies being made in cool climate Tasmania, I have no doubt they will, in time, be as successful as our wine makers,turning out high quality products .
Australia makes, has for a long while, superb rum products. Inner Circle, not commercially available, is 75.9% proof spirit. Got it as a present, not game to open it.
Yes,we do make mead, though honestly it does nothing for me.

Hendo, yours might be better, and I should have added the freight on mine. Seakamp brand $500 copper nickel, freight $300 each, making $800 each all up for the exchangers,less than the $1200 I was quoted here, though that was in s/steel.
41C here in Sydney now at 2pm and climbing. Relief via a southerly wind change not expected until 2am, in 12 hours.I`m hiding in the a/c parts of the house.

Drain cleanin?/ ..grrrrrrr....
There ought to be some fine mead made down your way. The record honey production per hive was down just above Tasmania. There is nothing better than a fine meadat about 19% and slightley sweet.....yummm

I like your style Hendo. Full speed ahead and no looking back! This is perhaps my favorite thread on the forum.

Yep, typical Western Australian works going on ere mate. Get in, get it done, do it properly and don't piss around. No fancy workshops here. I'm lucky to have met some great people that are always willing to lend a hand. I'll have plenty of time in the helm paying back the favours by chasing down some big fish :-). It's a win win for everyone, especially me :-D

Ok well I've had two posts removed tonight due to a hypersensitive, hypocritical and prissy member. Apparently it's ok to give but not to take in his book.

I'm gonna bugger off for a while as I'm pissed off about this.

Thanks to those of you that helped me and I wish you well with your projects

If you want to know how the "AXE" is going, message Art. He has my email.

Cheers

Greetings,
I, for one and I'm SURE I'm not the only one, will miss your posts and yes, every one of your posts. Please don't let one WANKER deter you. I've had posts deleted and I expect the same will happen in the future. Probably this one because I used the "W" word...

Yo, Hendo / Matt... WTF is up? What da H happened???

If you can see your way clear don't bugger off, as you say. Like I used to say to the fight losers when I was young and wild in New England fisher taverns and pubs... after a row had occurred and we winners bellied back up to the bar ... "Don't be bitter, reconsider!" LOL

Lots of TF contributors, very much me included, are getting a thrill out of vicariously experiencing your monumental boat rebuilding experience. You are doing a boat rebuild more pronounced than I've ever seen - bar none! And, you are doing it quickly too... I'll be pleased to provide your email addy to any TF person who requests.

Hope you do reconsider and continue sharing/displaying your wonderful boat building experience with us all. Your picts are outstanding!

Happy boat Daze! - Art

Ok well I'm over my little tantrum now and I've decided to stop being a sooky la la not to take my cricket bat and ball home but continue to play on.

Received a couple of PMs and an email that helped clear things up and showed me how to block people :-D so I don't see their crap etc. thanks for the support and words of advice and to show me for every wanker on here, there are many numerous nice people genuinely interested.

I've also looked at my replies and yes they can be toned down a bit and can see how my dry sense of humour can result in posts being blocked and people getting offended. I'll work on that.

Sorry if I offended anyone. I only really tried to offend one person as he has attacked more than one person and I was sick of no one standing up to him but he's blocked now so I can mind my own business moving forward.

Sorry for the drama. I feel embarrassed now :-/

Anywhoooo, enough of that sh*t. Back to the AXE.

Today I slept in till 11am so there was no point heading down to the boat so I stayed home and mucked around with some engine parts.

I cleaned the bell housing and flywheel ready for painting.

The admiral got offered a new job on Friday so the plan is to take her out tonight to celebrate this, so not working on the boat turned out well.

Other than that it was a quiet one.

Sorry again if I'd offended anyone outside of the person I was trying to offend.

Cheers
Hendo.

Hendo, sorry a troll got to you,you resolved it quickly. Expect the usual proportion of strange ones as in the general community and use the "ignore" facility.
Best wishes for your project, keep up the reports.
All the best from the east.
