On why they are there, I think the US has been making a little show of force in the South China Sea due to China's wanting to pretty much claim the entire Sea as its sovereign water.

Haha yeh basically that's what happened mate. The whole Western quayside was cleared for them because they told the pilots we are all berthing together.

I suspect those in Fremantle are there for the same reason, but Matt may know more. Possibly purely coincidental, but I suspect not.

Sorry Peter but they came to see AXE ... Pics to follow hahaha

Righto so once I cleared off those pesky navy folk, I went to the boat shop and bought 60ltrs of Bote Cote resin, 30ltrs of Hardener, 10kgs of Glue/Fillet powder, 5kgs of High Strength glue powder and 100mtrs of 150mm wide 450gsm tape and took it down to AXE. I also took a couple of pics of my glassing yesterday.

Am curious, what does everyone have on their back decks?

I'll be fishing (hooks, blood, scales), diving (tanks, spearguns), drinking (spills) having parties (food, kids) on the decks of AXE.

I'm not putting down teak and I don't want to paint it so I'm going to put carpet on the back deck and hull extension. Has anyone got any other suggestions that is as easy to take care of as Marine Carpet?

Matt my 2 cents is hang the carpet idea. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and the bag o chips. No clue what to put down but I'd lay down pea gravel before I ever carpeted another boat deck. Stuff feels nasty even when it's clean, some sorta solid painted surface is my best guess. Good luck.

Matt, I am afraid I will have to agree with Craig. A nice epoxy paint with nonskid is what I would do. You can make it two tone with a nice pattern.

I'm with Craig, ditch the carpet. Unless your wanting to grow bait. What about that KIwi grip you used earlier on? Put your base coat color down to match the rest of the boat, then mask off the borders and do the Kiwi Grip with a pattern for non skid. The Pea Gravel is just barely above the carpet, but still above.

Another against carpet. You need to be able to just hose it down while fishing as well as at the dock.

I agree Matt. My boat had the teak decks removed, reinforced, then fibreglassed over, then painted in a non-skid finish. It serves very well. The edges and around things like deck fillers are picked out in white, the rest is blue. Looks good - cleans up easily. New models are all done that way in the Clipper Evolution series also. No teak.

Cheers all. Carpet still winning and #1 choice for my needs and requirements. This afternoon I went gangbusters on the 450gsm glass tape and did a heap of glassing which was good. Pretty cold tonight with showers forecasted for tonight and tomorrow so the epoxy might be a bit slow in setting but I'll see how it goes. If dry enough tomorrow after work, I start on filleting. Externally, the goal is to have no square internal corners in exposed areas. They will all have 50mm fillets to avoid water retention and to add to looks

The Blue rubber matting maybe?? Softer underfoot than non-skid paint and easy to hose off. I have carpet on my boat and have no issues hosing it off after each trip.

Cheers

PS. Followed your thread all the way through and what a great effort. When you bring Axe for a trip to Tassie the beers on me

Hello mate! Yeah I'm still going carpet at this stage. I've had it on all of my boats and haven't had issues, except the odd lure getting stuck on it. I want low care hard wearing non reflective surface. I don't want to be fussing or panicking and having to wear special no scratch covers on shoes or having to wear a welding mask to block out the reflection

It's there to be enjoyed. Carpet will be a dark charcoal Marine Grade with the same style as the beige planked/striped one pictured below.

Matt me Mate!

Please review this SuperKrete website http://www.super-krete.com/tag/supercrete/ ; regarding an exceptional product line I have used in several instances other than marine. I also plan to use it on our boat in future, when deck coating may be required. Knowing what you do and how you can adapt items to fit your building needs... I believe Super-Krete product's many, many levels of "interactive-mixes" and their extreme durability/usefulness may become your choice for both marine and land-based projects.

Cheers! - Art
