45] Yard Do-it-yourself Typical Sailboat Restoration | Abandon Comfort





Well, here’s a several months of work compacted into a 18min online video. We definitely want to target on quality around amount with our video clips. This means, significantly less fluff and much more impactful – move the needle ahead types of material. This is entirely from standard YouTube creator knowledge (create at minimum weekly episodes the place not way too a lot really takes place) but producing films that we can be definitely very pleased of is what we want to do.

We are stoked to share more about our updated cruising ideas, more specifics on the initiatives we have prepared and the background of our new boat in the coming episodes!

  2. If your solar and recovery emergy can be at a rate closer to your electric engine requirements on a sunny day you can travel even farther
    There are other chanels i think you know who have electric motors and you must have talked to them already. Hugs from Canada

  3. WOW …A most beautiful cruising yacht ! Unless safety issues were found initially I would go sailing with the ship I had purchased and then evaluate over time the needs of the boat and its new owners. That is a beautiful power plant and I assume significant important ballast for the design. Love your channel.

  4. This guy has no engine
    Electric or fossil
    Also a gaff rigged boat
    He uses a sculling oar when no wind

  6. you guys are too stupid to make videos – You have dragged it out to the point of 2 minutes of useful information into 5 – 30 minute videos

  7. I hope you guys realize that you have the world best pocket blue water cruiser monohull sailboat in the world, not to mention yours has beautiful teak decks & a beautiful wooden mast. If you guys decide to unstall an electric motor, check out the Seimens emrax motor, strongest e-motor weight to horsepower ratio. They also have solar cell panels you can walk on, I was also thinking you could put on davets to hold a dingy & mount a couple of solar panels there. Can't wait to see it finished & good luck.

  9. I hope all is going well with your 'new' Luci! I thought of something remembering back to the days of paddle wheel steamers and the new screw propellers. Would it be possible to have something like a 4WD transfer case to shift from electric motor power to bicycle peddle power which might be less physical and maybe accompany or augment the oar power? Good luck on your venture with your new Luci and hope to see her soon!!

  10. So many old time 'sail only' craft lost on the rocks and reefs because the wind blew the wrong way. Electric engines are 'green' but you won't get more than an hour or two of propulsion out of the best batteries. Having a small Diesel as a 'life saving' and 'boat saving' back-up is just good sense. It's not about 'weight saving' vs. 'no fossil fuel', it's about staying safe on the water. Come on guys, you use an auto to travel, a truck to tow and power plant electricity to work on the hull. Having a potentially life saving engine is not abandoning your desire to be 'Green', it's facing the reality of travel on the ocean. Even a decent sized outboard would be an option. I had one on every sailing vessel I've owned…

  11. I have a boat with an 48 volt electric motor and love it ! I have a propane generator to run through my batteries and a heck of a lot cleaner and the fuel is reliable !

  12. Bottom didn’t look that bad frankly. But of course the camera hides defects. What was the issue with the hull I wonder….

  13. You should put a waterbed on the sailboat

  14. doing this type of job in nature with no evacuation concrete slab is very not ecological considering how toxic the dust and the paint is … what a disaster such pity for such cool project

    Reply
  15. did this as a job for a couple years, can suck if you let it. By the end of it I could have a 60+ foot bottom sides completely sanded and painted in a couple days.

  17. OARS??? Holy shit!

  18. A quick question, you say that your concerned with weight, how much do you think you'll save by removing the diesel that is so simple, and adding a battery bank charging system and motor ? I just don't see any advantage at all, maybe a little more dangerous though. Be safe.

  19. Abandon the very idea of Oars bad idea, Totally useless. Are you an ex Coasty, I am an ex Coasty. Look now and consider this, A para kite sail that can be flown off the deck anchored on deck and steered with control lines like combat kites or sail boards makes a heck of a better solution, Think outside the box guys. GOD bless yawl and your little boat.

  20. Ah! The sandblasting closeups are stunning. I had to snap a few screenshots and hang them on my inspiration board. Love it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  21. with a dry ice cleaner 1 day can do it all boat

  22. On power: Consider checking out "Gone with the Wynn's" regarding a generator and recovery time. They represent the opposite of Abandon Comfort but are dealing with solar power in a big way and have made some serious discoveries. Perhaps a diesel electric??.. it saves a hole in the bottom.

    Reply
  23. You probably considered soda blasting… how did that stack up against the glass beads?

    Will you now paint vinyl ester over the raw bottom to protect is from blisters?

    Best of luck

    Reply
  24. Yeah I know I am a year behind but why not bio diesel?

    Reply
  25. Love yor videos…time is money so I wonder if dustless blasting is the way to go?

  26. I stopped watching at 15:49 when they were trying to justify their insanity. Have no interest in watching them destroy this boat.

    Reply
  27. I have ZERO idea why you have any subscribers. No offense dudes.

    Reply
  28. Not sure I would personally feel as confidant about trying to fix an electric motor underway as I would a traditional engine.. Props for trying to go green but since you rarely use the engine what are you really saving?

    Reply
  29. I've used industrial sandblasters before but never one that used water as well with it. I had been wondering if it was a good idea to blast the bottom paint off or not. Blasting gets in all the nook and crannies when you do it to carbon steel but wasn't sure if it was to aggressive on fiberglass. Very cool.

  30. I'd rather have a boat that needs interior work then exterior work because then you can put it in the water and do the work but on exterior work it has to be out the water which put extra cost on the owner however interior work may cost a slightly more but I know I can sell with my journey beginning a new adventure and chapped in my lifetime

  31. You're lucky, I'll get sandpaper as it might take a bit longer but I know there's no electricity be used

  32. Sanding is a dreadful job because it's irritating and continuous for hours on end.

    Reply
  33. I feel the same way

  34. If you would of not recycled the sand you would of not had any problems , plus you are taking the risk of breathing toxic crap I know I did that on a horse trailer , but good job keep up the good work!!! be happy

  35. Good on you mates …I took out my diesel too and bought 4 8’ oars …cut in half sort of and sleeved them together and put on oarlocks and also had a Sanpan ….on my Maurice Griffith

  36. Out of your minds to get rid of a new and tiny Westerbe engine to try unproven and risky 'new' systems. You are going to regret the decision to ditch diese1

  37. these guys and many others have been brain washed about co2 i guess. it's life. these newbies seem to think they're waaaaaaaay smarter than they are.

  38. Ran into you guys by accident. I will be moving from Central America to South Florida to live and I want to buy a boat, not sure of what yet. I am use to 20-25 " ski boats in Colorado so it will be big change, but thinking of getting used sail boat and not sure of what size. Something reasonably cheap that I could fix up. Need suggestions on where to look and types of boats to look at. Please advise ! Thank you ! Ciao, Robert

  39. How long is this boat ? Is it good size for sailing in Caribbean ?

  40. Next time use a power washer with an oscillating bit you can get most of the paint off and then use a sander to get the rest…… just redid the bottom of my boat I know your pain

  41. I want to lap up her tyvek suit drippings after a long day of hot sanding.

  42. respeck and cool

  43. Go Steam for POWER? OR Go Tesla while thinking out of the box.

  44. Are you going to have de-salinazation on board? There is a big push for that technology hint, hint. Love your Boat.

  45. Not sure why you striped the hull to glass. Didn't look like there was that much build up. The spruce mast is hollow (boxed) inside (or should be) and is extremely strong. Would be interested in the weight difference between it and aluminum. Spent two years sailing a boat without an engine and learned a lot about sailing and maneuvering through marinas and anchorages that stuck with me and came in handy even with engine.
