While I'd prefer to see them resurrecting a fiberglass boat, gotta admit that I look forward to the new episode each week. Nicely and professionally done.  They should have a network TV DIY show.

.....steel yachts too much maintence I shared a marina finger with a steel boat owner ...........he was always chipping away at it

There's a lot of steel boats around here, many are well built and in great shape. There are a few that don't know what to do, or can't afford to do it properly  and consequently are always chipping away.

Assuming decent build quality, are steel yachts inherently stronger than a similar quality, plastic boat?

whereas plastic just sits

For most of us our plastic boats will outlive us by many years.  With steel there is maintenance to be done to the hull itself - which also has a scrap value.

Plastic has no scrap value. So there is no reason to scrap a hull - cheaper sometimes to just park it somewhere.

I am sure steel is stronger - but when do you actually need that strength in the life of a reasonably adventurous sailor. I can see steel if you are going in among the ice flows.... but there is seldom any good reason for bumping into rocks...

Having said that ... I bump into them quite frequently because I deliberatly sail in among them and  the plastic generally bounces back

Strength depends not only on the material but on the amount of material incorporated. There are some terrifically strong reinforced plastic and wooden boats while some are quite fragile .  For boats built to, and not exceeding construction standards,  steel suffers less damage and is significantly less likely to have the hull breached from collisions than other  materials.

FRP can be left in the marina to sit for years and clean up OK, as long as it doesn't have too much woodwork and the deck fittings are well sealed.

Sailing between sheltered anchorages in well charted areas, with everyone observing the rules of the road, the daintiest of well maintained foam cored boats will be no risk whatsoever to the operators, and great fun.  You can go up in strength from there to suit your cruising style and the risks therein.

Steel is malleable - so it will bend & deform quite a bit before it fails & rips. So great material if you want to factor in running aground or being run into. And repairing steel is pretty easy - you can find good welders & stock plate anywhere in the world. Hell, you can weld underwater!  Somewhere there is a picture of a 40' (or so) steel boat that got hit by a freighter, has a nice bulbous bow dent going in about 8" in the bow panels - but no holes!!

Boats in general are too much maintenance. Although a properly built/coated steel boat isn't all that bad. The time you spend maintaining the coatings on a steel boat from what i can see would be spent rebedding deck hardware and chasing leaks in a fibre glass hull. My boat hasn't had a single deck leak in almost 2 years since i've had her, as virtually all my gear is welded on. There are merits to each and every material i guess. 

Plus, FRP isn't a perfect material either... Over time, the fibres can stretch and (larger boats specifically) can get....floppier... which ironically, so do their owners. 

I like steel, as boats built from it tend to me more sturdy and stable and can take a fair bit of abuse. To each his own, if we were all the same would't life be boring? I love boats of all shapes, sizes and construction.... Sometimes i wish i had a small frp boat so i could get out sailing more.

For Ajax - a while back - 'Phone sanitizers?'

 

They were an actual thing once.... I actual saw one at work in about 1974... came into the agent's office at about 1710.... sanitized the phone... and left..... took about 3 minutes...

I wonder what they did for a living after the advent of mobile phones...although I think they disappeared long before that.

It was vaguely akin to the current fashion of having  'trundler handle sanitizing wipe dispensing machines' as you enter supermarkets.

 

OK the question was asked a while ago.... I just haven't checked this thread in a while....sorry...

It’s a nerd trigger.  You get it instantly, or you don’t.  

Vaguely related: When I first started working for a corpseration, I had a problem with my office phone (which turned out to be “user error”) so I summoned “Tech Support.”  A couple of days later, the most amazingly attractive young woman shows up in my office in Carharts and a tool belt and crawls under my desk, leaving only an extremely shapely derrière protruding, which flexed and twitched as she worked.  Right in front of my lap. Keep in mind: Nerd. Only recently released from grad skool. 

:blink:

It was only with amazing restraint, that I refrained from having “phone troubles” every week!

Seriously, it was completely and totally a porn set-up.

Come to think of it, just about that time, I was working “late” (before midnight, I think) one night in that office, when a couple of crazy-looking shaggy guys with a big spool of wire and a ladder shambled down the hallway, muttering crazy nonsense to each other.  “Hey!,” One of them stuck his head in the door, “Do you wanna be on The Internet?”

”The what now...?”

”Trust me, it’ll be great!”

I got a Go Pro a few years back.  Was all hot to get a drone.  However, I quickly realized that the time required to edit and find music (legally) to use, etc was a whole lot more work.  Truthfully, if you're not already into video, pictures and editing, your 'episode' count is likely to be small....

I used to teach sophomore microbiology, and as part of the “lab” class students had to apply the scientific method and devise their own experiment to test a hypothesis.  About two thirds of the class would always test for E. coli on various surfaces around campus. Basically, anything that people put their hands on is... nasty. 

One group tried to measure the diameter of the “aerosol target” around public toilets. Let’s just say that they got an “A” and very, very, scared.

If the Sail Life guy were covering something I was specifically planning to do on my boat, I would find his videos highly valuable, and study every minute of them. His tips are good - for example the simple step of putting everything that will be used for the job out in proper order before starting. But it's hard to watch the entirety of his vids if I'm just mildly interested in what he's doing.

The Odd Life couple are just the opposite. They are light on detail, more about documenting the different work that's being done (often in fast forward mode). But they have the camera charm advantage - especially the delightfully bubbly first mate. I watch them regularly even though I'm not in love with their boat.

One of the great parts of boatbuilding (or maybe the hardest part about learning boatbuilding?!) is that there are many different ways to do things. And they are all correct! Steaming in Arabella's frames is a good example of this. All her framing so far has been steamed in after we have cut pockets in the centerline to hold the butt ends of the frames. At this point in the planking process, we have come up to a point in the bow that had a wide section missing a pair of frames due to the mast step being in the way. We needed something to attach the planking to and keep it from rising up, so the only logical thing to do was to steam in the frames that belonged there. The process of steaming these frames, is exactly the same as all the rest except for the fact that they do not get pocketed into the centerline. These frames have their butt ends shaped to fit between the planking and the centerline. They are then screwed in through the planking and into the centerline to be held in place as we bend them to shape. Since we only had two of these to do, we didn't want to light up the giant steam box we have. This would be a waste of wood and time to get all that water up to a boil for just two frames. So, we built a small steam box out of a length of PVC pipe. Our setup wasn't ideal... but you live and you learn!

I am somewhat surprised that they are either that far north at this time or even anticipating a transatlantic this late.  I'm sure they can 'do' it, but they will have no time to enjoy the northern cruising grounds.  Seems a shame to have to race by them on their way to the Med.  But, everyone has different priorities...

Yes, if I were them, I would spend winter in Portugal or South Brittany - if they can't cross the bay of Biscay in time - and spend the next spring and summer cruising Ireland, Scotland and Norway.
