    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    I was wondered the same thing. Maybe that's why she doesn't mind painting so much? Still curious about the label on that paint can. No where in the video do they reveal the brand. Maybe in a past video? I personally can't see them dropping the coin for a gallon of legitimate anti-fouling. That would far exceed the overall value of the boat. Don't forget to Bondo all those holes you drilled below the waterline in order to drain those custom sugar scoops...

    I'm really curious where the hell they got that blue bottom paint? Home Depot latex? Leftover from the houseboat refit, I suppose....

    I personally appreciated the hull-to-deck joint repair. Half-ass is better than no-ass, right? Creepy giggles and whispers aside, I'm following this one all the way to its tragic ending... ...which should shortly follow.

    Cleaning soiled inflatable

    We've used Barkeepers Friend soft scrub cream with success. Also, teak cleaner with oxalic acid works incredibly fast, but it tends to run all over the place due to the viscosity.

    Coffee

    Oil funnel and a PAPER coffee filter? You're living in the Stone Age man. These have the filter built in, and they're available in multiple sizes. I've found that the non-food-grade plastic combined with hot water gives the coffee a wonderful flavor profile....

    Direct lead acid to lithium replacement batteries

    +1 more for Battle Born drop—ins. 500 Ah for two solid years and getting ready to add 3 additional 100 Ah units to the system. Can’t do that with lead... I still think reliable electric propulsion for any significant duration of time is a thing of the future, but thanks to those of you vetting out the systems. I’ll stick with my Perk 108 for the time being. I do however believe that lead-acid as boat power storage medium is well on its way toward the Endangered Species List Pretty sure the OP was asking about direct replacement for FLA and not where to source used medical shit to assemble a homemade system.
  9. Wow, two inches wide by half inch thick eh? That's quite the score.

    Greta Rides Again?

    Been away for a few weeks. Looks like I didn't miss much. Still pretty fucking cold where I'm at; we could use a little Climate Change as far as I'm concerned. I live on a sailboat. I give less than two shits if the sea level rises a couple feet over the the next decade, or eighteen months, or six weeks, or what the fuck ever it is that the latest so called climate genius has predicted. Learn to swim bitches.
  11. Depends on how you like your boat to look while you own it, and if you ever plan on selling it. Do you want it to look like some Home Depot low budget Melamine and white Latex paint DIY kitchen remodel from a Saturday episode on HGTV, or do you want it to look like the rest of the boat did 40 years ago? I've seen a lot of these "on the cheap YouTube kids" that absolutely ruin the resale values of an already piece of shit boat. Just digging a deeper hole with every brush stroke. By the way, teak turns reddish brown with varnish, and I spent many a painstaking hour mixing and matching gloss and satin Epifanes. Some of these are old pics, but today you couldn't tell what's new teak, and what came from the factory in 1977. These were not in the original drawings, but I bet they would be now. Just ask Bob...

    Can't we all just sit back, watch, and enjoy the fact that we've done everything we can to keep OUR boats seaworthy? That's what makes this rookie shit show so much fun. Too bad there was no internet search function available when these two fuck-tards made this life-altering decision, right?
