  1. Why did you use an isolation transformer instead of a galvanic isolation unit?

  2. Hey mads can’t believe your hoovers still going strong! How comes your not using the Bosch extractor?

  3. Hi Mads, Great episode, as always. Looking at the way that the light streams in through the fibreglass of the patch in your head – what about leaving a clear patch as a “light panel”? You could coat the outside with a clear UV protector and you’d have light in your head without the fuss of being able to see in or have to clean the window…

  5. Hi Mads! Sorry if I missed this somewhere: Can you please tell us the exact type of the foam plates you are using? Looks like a pretty cool material. 🙂

  8. Could you take a new roll of fiberglass wrap it tightly in shrink wrap and use a bandsaw to cut 10/20/30cm sections off of it?

  9. Ok, so what do I see as problems? Well…what about lighting in there? Might have thought about finishing that entire compartment before sealing it up with that bulkhead. I understand your methodolgy here, but now you're going to be cramped even more so in that compartment trying to run cable, hoses, fixtures, brackets, placing equipment, etc. It may have been worth while finding a way to make that door "bigger". As others have asked, how do you plan to seal that hatchway? It needs to be fairly easily accessible, as well as being as water tight as possible to prevent that shower from spraying into the technical department (water always finds a way).

  10. its hard to tell but when you are tabbing to the existing bulkheads, are you using progressively wider strips of fiberglass? each layer should be around 4" wider, 2" on each side. this will allow for the existing thick bulkhead, transition to the newer fiberglass panels, and not have a thicker cross section of fiberglass at the corner…

  11. have a great visit. Cheers from PEI Canada, Bryan.

  12. When laying up glass, how do you know how many layers to lay? Do you just lay up enough layers to get the existing thickness or does the glass shrink when laying up, so you have to add an extra layer or two? Love the channel!! Have fun in LA!

  14. Great videos but not sure were you got a ratio of 12:1 for the scarf joint this is ok for wood but marine FRP/GRP repairs are referenced at 40:1 t0 100:1 in all the literature I have read.

  15. Did you consider making room in the bench in the tech area for stacking plastic crates to orderly store your tools , spare parts, etc etc! This instead of the compartment with the access hole.

  16. Looking good.😀👍⛵️

  17. Have you ever checked the keel bolts on Athena?

  18. Are you going to have a generator in the technical area? If so, are there any access/ventilation issues?

  19. 6:03 This is why I keep unsubscribing from this channel. I run an adblocker so I don't have to deal with ads and garbage shoved down my throat and now people are becoming shills for companies in their videos. Time to skip this channel again.

  21. If you put several hundreds pounds of stuff in the starboard technical compartment, you might give some thought to what will offset it on the port side, else the boat will have a permanent list to starboard. Usually heavy equipment is kept more on centerline.

  22. Awesome work and great video work as well. You and your fiance will be rewarded with an excellent cursing sailboat capable of going anywhere in the world. Thanks again for sharing your efforts with the rest of the world. Cheers and enjoy the trip to LA… Joe

  23. Crazy how long this is taking. A technical compartment gives you major Geek Cred, but you could have had 3 1/2 kids already and planning kindergarten for the oldest…

  24. So when you finished…sell lottery tickets for Athena winner gets her and you make enough money to buy a new boat

  25. Mars I don’t think you understand! “…save me time sanding…”??? We, the viewers, live to hear “Sanding, glorious sanding!” LOL

  26. I would use a power exhaust in the head to create a negative pressure so as not to stink the boat out. Passive openings don’t work

  27. I found that my electric gutter heater (for melting ice in your house gutters) may be my answer for heating any epoxy I need to use in cold weather. I finally am testing it in the bathroom hung from the shower bar. It will be good for a concentrated heat source. I have used halogen work lamps for heat since they are hot enough to cook bacon. If used to cook bacon, don't use them at a vegan's house. The bacon smell will waft around and the vegan friend will yell "sacrilege!" And sprinkle holy water on the work light perhaps damaging it.

  35. Love the content, have you ever considered adding more variety to the time-lapse video music choices? There are a few, royalty-free options such as Youtubes Audio Library, https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music?nv=1 , Hooksound https://www.hooksounds.com/ and others.

  36. I tried not to chime in, in an emergency and for overall sanity, I am noticing how much light the window that you glassed would be to have, for communication to the person on helm (most emergencies happen during passage) YOU ARE LOSING EYE TO EYE COMMUNICATION. As a sailor with a partner, the most stressful times we have is when we can not talk face to face during stressful times on our boat.

  37. I think I'm going to send you a shirt that says "I Love Sanding Fiberglass"  with a guy itching his neck…LOL
