⛵️Time to make a decision about our DIESEL TANK (USA meet up dates and venues) #119
⛵️Time to make a decision about our DIESEL TANK (USA meet up dates and venues) #119


So, today we are gonna show you how we
transformed out diesel tank from this into this. So, let’s get started. I’m Roberta. And I’m Duca. And for the past year we have been building our own tiny
shipping container house. Made possible by our Patreons (Thank you!!) So, we can travel around knowing that we will always have this little place that we can call home. But, guess what? We’ve just found our dream project before we expected: this abandoned sailboat. So, we are gonna stop building the house for a couple months to bring our boat back to life, and then we’re gonna go back and finish the house. New episode every Monday!! As you can see the boat is a mess inside. Check it out. Everything here is open. That’s the water
tank. That’s a future story. Yeah, future story. All around here, there, everywhere. It’s hardly even to walk inside of the boat. So, I think it’s easier for us just to go
outside and tell this story outside, right? So, let’s go outside. I don’t know if you guys remember but a
few months ago we opened up our diesel tank. And it wasn’t looking pretty. I mean… it wasn’t that bad, but it was a problem, that back then we didn’t know how to solve. If you guys have no idea what we’re talking about I think it’s just easier, like always, to pause this video and go back to this one and then there we explain the whole situation. We had a lot of bubbles on the
paint we had some rust… We explained it there. Pretty much at one point we needed to solve this problem and this is for the past months the worst problem we have I think. Yeah. Because it’s something that we didn’t really know how to solve and how to deal with. I think the best option to deal with the problem of the painting would be using the sandblasting machine. Yeah, the sandblasting is the only way you can come back to the raw metal, 100% raw metal and give a perfect treatment
on the top of it. But in Brazil at least the sandblasting is prohibited. Wait. It’s not that you cannot sandblast. You can sandblast. But outside of a factory or in a not controlled environment you cannot use dry sandblasting. So, we were gonna use wet sandblasting. Yeah, you can have like… you know the small cabins for sandblasting but we cannot take the boat to the small machine. Because our diesel tank is
the bottom of the hull of the boat. So, that means that it’s the boat itself. So, we decided we wanted to talk to the guy that has… you know him already, the guy that sandblasted our hatches. And he had a portable sandblasting machine. And he said once that he had all the pieces to put together a wet sandblasting machine
that we could take inside of the boat. This is good news. That was good news for a while. He said he could put it together but it took him, I don’t know… the past 4 months. He always needs something else like a small piece that he need to machine and this and that. And it started taking too long to get the machine ready until he had an idea. Which was? His neighbor’s machine. Yeah, we didn’t know that but his neighbor had a Italian machine that is a portable wet sand blasting machine ready to be used. And good news we found the best material to use in that. So, let’s show you first the material we wanted to use for sandblasting. Good news! Great news actually. We found a material to use in a sandblaster. We’re not gonna use sand actually, it’s
gonna be material called garnet. It’s a mineral. And we found out that in the marina someone used this material I think like 6 or 7 years ago and they had some leftovers on the… I’m gonna show you. It’s like a treasure hunt. Let’s go. There are a lot of ants here. Finally. We are drying some garnet because it seems that this afternoon we are gonna test this sandblasting machine. It’s pretty cool. 1 hour later… It’s about time to take off the impurities. Let’s see if it works. So, this is a mosquito net. It’s pretty good for this. It’s pretty good. It’s really really good actually. We are drying garnet for… I think 3 hours now. I’m pretty tired. This is how it needs to be. And this is the wet one. It sticks on the hand. And if you… Can you grab this? It doesn’t stick on the hand. So the plan was perfect. We had the machine, we had the garnet. Yeah, everything was in our hand to start doing what we needed to do, right? So after maybe a month he had the machine ready so we could do
a test. So… I mean before that we dried the garnet for like 3 days straight on the sun and we did all the preparation and we… It was a lot of work to get prepared to do the first test. And we went to his shop and we did the first test on one of the lids of the diesel tank. And it went (well) really good. It went really really well. Actually it took out perfectly the sand, I mean the paint. And that
was really good. So we decided it was about time to bring
the machine to the boat and give it a try. What a nice day, right? What a nice day, yeah. Theoretically it was a nice day. And that’s what happened. It’s about time to get the boat ready. For? We’ve been waiting to sandblast the
diesel tank for over 2 months I guess. So now, today in the morning I ran a test outside of the boat on the shop and the machine works so good. So now we want to get the boat ready because we’re gonna make a small mess inside of here. But it’s gonna be worth. Even though it’s gonna be sandblast with water… Sandblasting with water and sand. It used to make a small mess. So, it’s better to have plastic all over. All the holes and all… you know. You will see it. Let’s get the boat ready. Finally! After 2 months. Do you guys know what that means? We are gonna sandblast the tank, that’s what it means. Are you ready for the first test? Finally So, how is the sandblast going? Terrible. It’s not going. It’s just getting stuck. I think the sand is just stuck. It’s not working. We tried to sand there but it doesn’t take the rust off it. And it takes some sand out of the machine as well. Well. Even tough it was working, it was not working properly. What she means is that the machine works but it’s a really tough machine to get it done properly. And we thought it wouldn’t make any mess on the boat and to be honest it did some mess with it. Because even though it’s wet you still get some garnet and some particles around. And it was always… the nozzle was always stuck, we couldn’t get it to work properly because it was just… At first we thought it was us, we didn’t know what we were doing. So we decided to take the machine back to
the guy that rented us the machine. We spent 2 hours trying to use this and regulating the pressure and everything. And we couldn’t make it work. So we went back to the shop,
his shop and he did another test. And then he couldn’t make it also to work. The thing is the garnet was just getting stuck in the nozzle and it was it was really tricky. So, we decided… if we use this machine we need someone that always uses this machine so the person knows how to use it and know how to fix it and we can do it a proper job. It was between Christmas and New Year. And we couldn’t find the right person because they are all busy working in or in vacations or whatever. And we decided that it was about time to do something. We needed to finish the diesel tank. We could not wait anymore. So we gave to the guy that rent us the machine and we said: “We either start by Monday or we won’t do this way”. And then we decided not to do this way. And then it was the time that he twisted his ankle. Right when we were gonna start doing the job ourselves I got hurt. You guys know that already. I fall inside off a hatch and I twisted my ankle and I couldn’t walk for like almostva month. And then we decided that we needed help. So we hired one of the
guys that painted our boat. The guy that actually cleaned the diesel tank for us. And as he is on vacations for his company, the company that he works for, the one that painted our boat, he had no job and he wanted to
work to make some extra money. So, it was good for him, it
was good for us, the price is fair I think. We paid like around 25 US dollars
for a day of work. So we paid him by day that he works. And we started doing the
hard way. The hard work. It was just a mix of everything you can imagine, just like the test we did on this video. The thing is after doing that test… that test that we shot this video was like 3 or 4 months ago I think . 3 months ago? 4. Maybe 4 months ago. And until today no rust came back. It’s still perfect. The paint job was really really well done. And we really believed that it won’t come back. So we gave up on trying to
sandblast the diesel tanks. And in the other hand… On the other hand or in the other hand? On the other hand is… We think it’s less risky even though we don’t take a hundred percent of the paint off, it’s less risky to do this way then wet sandblasting. Let me explain it. Wet sandblasting takes the paint off but also gets the plate wet. That means we needed to have any special kind of paint in order to be able to paint a humid surface. We can only find paints to paint humid surface that are not allowed to be inside of a diesel tank. And when we find a paint that is for diesel tanks they’re not allowed to paint on the wet surface. That means that… we didn’t find any
kind of paint here that does both things. That you can paint on a wet surface like
a not wet but a humid surface, and at the same time not be a bad paint for diesel tanks. So, we decided to paint it with the same paint we did the test that is Interline 850 from International and do it dry, not wet sandblasting. We just used angle grinder… We did a lot of tests as well. Each part is a different way. In one square we… Eduardo used needle gun and paint remover, paint stripper. And in the end just a sand paper. Angle grinder sometimes. Hand sand and… Orbital sander… everything you can imagine. The first square was the worst one with rust. So… In the end it was mostly a mix in
between the paint stripper and the needle gun. The needle gun is really good
when the paint’s dry. It’s a lot of needles with a compressor that tic tic tic. I don’t know how to
do the noise but it’s much louder than that. It’s really really loud. You can get
crazy inside of the boat. And it shakes a lot. Poor Eduardo. In the end… Eduardo, thanks so much. The job was really well done. Paint stripper Needle gun So, this was the worst part of the diesel tank. There were some rust spots here. And now it’s like this and we’re gonna paint it now. So, we took… Eduardo took one day just to
clean this. And now Duca is preparing the painting. Baby steps. One day we’ll get
there. One day we’ll have a full tank painted full of diesel. Tomorrow we are planing on doing 2 at the same time. Let’s hope. If we can do tomorrow we do 2 on the next day and then we just have the big part and then we’re done with the diesel tank. I’m dreaming. So this is where we are living. I don’t know if you can hear me but that’s the only clean spot of the entire boat. Because after this door it’s the mess. Check it out. Meanwhile. Someone is out working here. What are you doing? Sorry? What are you doing? Cleaning. Buying the gasket for the tank lids. And right now we have the tank with
3 coats of diesel tank paint, that’s perfect done. All the edges, everything is
ready. The only thing that’s missing is that
the guy with the sandblasting machine. He’s gonna sandblast, dry sandblast the lids inside of his small cabin. And then he’s gonna paint it
there and then we’re gonna install it. But of course it’s not ready yet. And we are still waiting for the gasket to arrive. Because the gasket for the diesel
tank needs to be a special kind of gasket, because otherwise the diesel will
just corrode the rubber, the gasket. So, we are waiting for this kind of a gasket
that is… Nitrile. Nitrile rubber or something like that. Pure nitrile rubber. You can use it for diesel tanks. We bought it like 3 weeks ago and it still… Supposedly it’s gonna arrive this week. But this week, when you watch this video, we are probably gonna be on our way to the States. We’re gonna spend 10 days in the US. So we are not gonna do that in time. But at least now you understood our way of thinking… Because when you refit a boat it’s just all about the process of solving problems and making decisions. That’s the most important thing that’s what we do every day all day: it’s just decision after decision and the boat the result of the decisions you make. And I think if we just show you us painting that the diesel tank it doesn’t make sense. I think it’s better for you to understand why we did and how we thought about it. Of course it’s not a perfect solution. No, the perfect solution would be to take all the furniture off and just sandblast the whole thing and treat. Sometimes it’s not possible to… it’s
raining on the camera right now. That’s not good. But sometimes it’s just not possible to do
the way we wish we could do it. There is another thing. The paint we are using… we need to have the correct humidity to use this and our friend Fred Borrow? Lent us an air conditioner portable one. Do you remember the guy we stayed at his boat for a week when I broke my fo… I twist my ankle? We were staying at our friend’s boat on the next marina and he has a huge air conditioning on his boat, like a residential one, just as he works
on a boat because here is really hot right now. And he used to have a smaller unit
and he let us use now. So now we have an air conditioning inside of the boat and that was perfect. Because we’ve been painting the inside part of the boat for over 3 weeks now. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining outside, if it’s hot, if it’s
humid. Because we turn on the air conditioning and it takes all the humidity off. So we always have a controlled humidity inside and that’s really good, because otherwise we wouldn’t be able to finish diesel tank so fast. Because here everyday rains a little bit and then there is humidity and it’s not good for painting. We said painting the inside of the boat. The truth is we are not only doing the diesel tanks. But that’s something for a future episode. We’re painting the water tank, we are painting all the… how do we call it? The bilges. A 100% of the bilges, all the toilets on the bottom. It’s a big painting job because we don’t want to paint the inside part of the steel of the boat for a long time. So, we are doing a really good job on that. And we are also working on some welds outside. Yeah, we’ve been saying that we were
working on some welds for a while now. But at one point you’re gonna see it. It’s
really nice. Maybe in the next video. I think maybe next week’s video is gonna be about a really nice welding job that we… It’s like… It’s not something that we needed but it’s something that we really wanted. Because it’s gonna be a lot… it’s gonna… In our way of seeing the boats gonna be a lot safer to walk around. I’m talking too much. I think that’s it
for today, right? We talked too much already. I mean, I talked too much as usual. I try it sometimes but it’s real life you know. He talks a lot. It’s just the way it’s. It’s a funny story. I actually started properly speaking when I was only 4 years old. So I started it late and now I’m just getting back… you know… You are talking for all this period. Done for today. So, let’s welcome on board our new
Patreons for this week. Welcome on board: Tony, Brian, Kaspars. And also we need to speak some Portuguese today. We want to welcome on board our new Apoiadores. Because we have also a Brazilian platform for… Patreons. It’s not Patreons, it’s… Supporters. Yeah. So, we want to thank… It’s actually weird to speak in Portuguese. We want to thank and to welcome on board, Edson and Rubens. Edson and Rubens. Thanks a lot! And we also want to thank again Ravic for
his donation through our PayPal. Thanks a lot, Ravic. We really appreciate your support. So, as we said last week we are going to the United States. But now we have specific
dates and locations to meet you guys for 3 meet ups. That’s gonna be really
cool. So the first one is gonna be a hangout in the boat show. Miami Boat Show in the 15th of February from 1:00 to 3:00PM at tent C 628. That’s gonna be
the tent from Propspeed. We’re gonna be there with them. And we’re gonna meet wherever whoever… Whoever wants to stop by. You don’t need to confirm it, you just show up and we’re gonna be there to hang out with you guys. That’s gonna be awesome. The second one? The second one is a brunch in Fort Lauderdale on the 16th, on Sunday. Get ready to eat a lot. So, basically… of course we cannot afford to pay brunch for everyone, so each one pay for yourself, for your brunch. But, you pay one price and you eat as much as you can. And you drink a lot as well: tequilas and margueritas. You can drink and eat as much as you want
from 11:30 to 3:00 p.m.. And in the description below there is the name of the restaurant, the name of the place the address… All the informations on a
Facebook event. So, you can confirm so we can make sure we know how many people are gonna show up. The third one? There is a limited space for this one. The restaurant cannot afford 300 people there. So it’s better just to confirm just so you get we get organized. And the third one? The third one is gonna be in New York. This is gonna be a cool one. Actually it’s Port Chester. It’s on the… one hour from New York. One hour by train they say. We got invited by UK sailmakers do a presentation about our project, about our sailplanes. We are going to be there actually discussing the sailplanes of our boat. So we can make the sails of the boat, because we’re gonna have all brand new sails. And on Saturday, February we’re gonna have an event on their loft from 4 to 6p.m. And we’re gonna just talk about the journey we’ve been doing for 3 years and… About our channel… Whatever you want to ask us you just can… you can go there and ask us. We’re gonna talk about the YouTube channel, how we run the channel,
how our work is, how our daily life it, what are our plans for the future, how the boat is going… And so on. As you can tell I talk a lot, so you’re gonna hear me talking for 2 hours. It’s a long episode this time. Long live episode. So, we hope we see you there, guys. For today that’s it because we’re rambling already. So, we see you next week on the 15th and then 16th and then 22nd. We still don’t know what’s gonna be, we didn’t edit any video yet. We need to edit a video. We are gonna be late because of the trip, but it’s gonna be fine. We always find a way. See you guys next week. We are gonna edit it on the airplane for sure. We need to edit a video in the airplane… But we see you guys next week in person now. That’s pretty good. See you guys next weeks. Join the crew

    The boat and the progress is looking good. I am all caught back up now

  3. Bill Stedman says:

    Lots of talking…………..

  4. Amon Shumate says:

    Excellent.

  5. Veneil says:

    A bit of a word of warning: don't ever come down those steps again wearing socks! They make your feet very slippery and an accident is never far away on a boat, certainly not when you're actually out there, at sea, when the boat is heaving and lurching every which way. In the meantime, as always, love watching your channel…

  6. Tony Alexander says:

    $25.00 U. S. To work on those tanks all day .. OMG I wish I could get my power boat down there !

  7. Richard Bohling Sr says:

    I hope both of you have a great trip to the USA. Sounds like you have a plan to meet your u tube buddies and have a good time. Duca expect to do a lot of talking and explaining the same thing over and over again. Good to hear you plan on putting your sail order in so the can be made. I'm in the center of the US so I will not be able to come East to meet both of you. Three days driving one way for me. As for the tanks, it's amazing that there is so little rust after sitting on the hard for 25 years. The paint job looks great and should last a very long time. Make sure the sender works before you seal it into the tank. Have a safe trip and enjoy the USA.

    OMG The needle gun. Used one for years in the US Navy chasing the "Rust Monster" I know that noise and vibration well 😉

  11. Andrew Bergin says:

    Hi you guys Love you're work and vlogs! Get a haircut and have fun in the USA. AUSTRALIA

  12. Duane Miller says:

    If you have or could borrow a Power washer you can get a wet media blaster kit for like 40 bucks to attach to it. Of course this is probably a little late unless you still have your water tanks to do. It was interesting and at the same time strange to find out you can’t media blast dry unless you’re indoors there. Had I known that earlier I would’ve given the above information months ago.

  13. Iouli Dombrovsky says:

    Why not install inside the metal tanks the plastic tanks?

  14. Leighton Schikora says:

    Always good catching up on your journey!

  15. Iouli Dombrovsky says:

    The endless speaking annoys…

  16. Charles Davis says:

    You should have paid him at least $35.00 a day. For the hard work that he did..

  17. jeremy orourke says:

    So we can look like you didn't have any water going to it. It look dry inside your fuel tank and it's supposed to be wet like water.

  18. jeremy orourke says:

    You can do it and my thought was why did you dry the garnets out if you were going to use it wet anyways?

  19. jeremy orourke says:

    $25 a day I wouldn't touch the boat for less than a $100 a day…. Hate to say it, but you rip that guy off, but if he's dumb enough to do it, I guess it's a good deal for both of you.

  20. Chap C says:

    Making up for lost time on the speaking? Brilliant! No worries, we know you talk, and we are still here, so you don’t have to apologize.

    Thank you both!

  21. Completely Distracted says:

    Wow, you speak Portugese perfectly 😆😆😆👍🏻👏👏👏 it's nearly as good as your English 😃 love u guys, have a gr8 time away.

  22. Kiwi Bird says:

    Love hearing you speak Portuguese! Sounds so nice

  23. Jeffrey Wood says:

    Thank you. I really appreciate the way you share your decision making process, I am sure it will help me as I refit my future boat 🙂

  24. tim čopi says:

    why didnt you use a sandblasting with dried ice? the surface finish is great and it isnt wet after. we use these method in our marina all the time

  25. Inferno says:

    How do you deal with the dust when you paint the inside?

  26. Loki says:

    You will love to come visit here west coast southern California and so many beautiful beaches. A lot of boats at Coronado Island.

  27. Bubble O Bill says:

    Nice work guys ! . Pretty soon you’re going to be out there sailing . Let me know when you’re coming to Western Australia 🇦🇺 .

  28. Russell Hawkins says:

    Great job 👍.
    Only $25 per day to hire a specialist!!! That’s FANTASTIC!!!
    Doing the most Excellent job possible will at least double your investment – come the time to sell your boat you will be getting top dollar. And having this record of the work allows the new owner to do likewise with their buyer…
    Awesome 👏

  29. Ruby Petiluna says:

    Schade kein Deutscher Untertitel 😪

  33. Mike pech says:

    Lmao. Your cabin looked like my son's room when he was 12. But no worries, you guys will grow up as soon as the tank will be done. I'm looking forward to seeing you guys going splash. I'm sure you guys are too. You are doing everything right and no short cuts. The mark of true professionals. You may not have the papers, but your finished product is worth more than any papers will. I've seen jobs done by professionals that don't meet up to the job you guys have done. You two are a perfect team. Thumbs up for you.

  34. Kurt Armbrust says:

    It's exciting to see how you're progressing. Have a great trip the US. Looking forward to more videos.

  35. Tim Gore says:

    Great Job guys !! Enjoying the updates.

  36. Kevin Fisher says:

    If you can, sandblasting does a much better job and quicker. But it is also a lot messier for an interior as well. Anyway, yea I can understand hoping and waiting to get it done via sandblasting. But after period of time, likely around a month, and that was not happening. Think I would have resorted to manual labour of needle guns and sanders too. Just to get the job done.

  37. Bourdie jean-louis says:

    tres tres jolie fille

  38. ken kido says:

    Another Great video! The editing and music are really good. Your choice of music is always perfect. The tanks look so good, glad you found the right materials for the right job. Forward every week, still loving watching your progress : ) What a cute married couple you are! Have a safe trip and wonderful time in Miami. Continued Peace, Blessings and Good 'Sailing'.

  39. César Lopes says:

    Skip the diesel. GO ELECTRIC. More environmental, ni ned to dock up for diesel. Its Quite. No maintenance. Great investment. Have you considered it.

  40. daniello808 says:

    Duca ,
    hairdresser is looking for You… ;p hehe xD
    Have Good Trip !;]

  41. Raphaël Havranek says:

    Bonjour les amoureux,
    Bonnes vacances !
    Take the benefit of your trip to wash your head and forget your boat for a few hours, you will be more happy to find it back. I can't wait to see the next episodes. Let us know how it is to live in a clean and tidy room :+)
    Amicalement, Raphaël

  42. Sofia Kourtidou says:

    you guys should plan for a removable inox tank (someday in the future) :***

  43. Donald Smith says:

    Duca talks alot because he has a lot of interesting info to share!!!☺☺☺
    But not to say we can't do with more from Roberta!!!!
    Safe travels.

  44. Kevi O says:

    $25 for a days work? I hope you payed a little more for him

  45. Helio Torres says:

    Boa viagem, e não deixem de gravar os vídeos das muitas novidades legais que vocês verão lá no salão náutico.

    These are the times I wish I still lived in S.Florida

  47. ronnie jones says:

    Roberta thank you for the beautiful smile in the thumbnail.Ducca thank you for putting that smile in the thumbnail.i now know how Duca twisted his ankle,Roberta smiled Ducca got distracted and stepped in the wrong place.

  48. Rob Ormiston says:

    As long as you did not use red oxide abrasives on aluminum. It eats aluminium. It looks like red oxide that you found. I hope it's not.

  49. Rob Ormiston says:

    I repeat DO NOT USE RED OXIDE GARNET ON ALUMINUM. IT WILL EAT THROUGH THE ALUMINUM.

  50. Rob Ormiston says:

    If you used red Oxide garnet to sanblast aluminum on your diesel tank you might be in big trouble! Research what can come in contact with aluminum.

  51. Rob Ormiston says:

    I used to repair fishing boats in Alaska. A copper penny will eat a hole through aluminum in a matter of months and then you will have a hole in the bottom of your boat. Red oxide is a HUGE No No on aluminum. I'm scared for your tank if it's aluminum watching what I have so far. Please research my words!

  52. Rob Ormiston says:

    Most people don't know what I'm talking about with the red oxide and aluminum unless you spend $250,000 on a new aluminum boat and went it sandblasted.

  53. Rob Ormiston says:

    I hope you pressure washed all the red garner out and sealed it with chemical treatment to stop the red garner from eating your tanks after all that hard work.

  54. Dave Brown says:

    all blokes/ men talk a lot I know, I'm one! lol

  55. jeff hagberg says:

    I'd love to meet you two, I've actually been to that boat show several years ago. I have to work iIm not in Fla. I wish you well and safe travels!

  56. Eddie Cox says:

    Hope you have a fun and safe trip

  57. White Boy says:

    Just saying, but considering the old boat was named "Vulture" and it basically was dead you should name it "Phoenix". Literally it's a damn good name for a boat that went from where it was before to what it is now.

    Duca keep talking. Like what you have to say. Hope to see you in New York.

    I admire your fortitude and tenacity in dealing with your diesel tanks' internal paintwork. Your difficulties prompted me to consider alternatives. Could you not have inserted a fuel bladder tank into the steel tank? The quality of the preparation could have been reduced with just the inclusion of an anti-rust coating? The fuel bladder could be made to size and incorporate all the necessary connections. It would also be safer, the bladder would slowly collapse as the fuel was used so there were no voids filled with inflammable fumes and it would be more puncture proof in the event of a hull breach.
    Whilst I would hope that the internal tank painting that you carried out was done in full accordance with the recommendations, I have seen fuel tanks lined with paint delaminate from the metal that allowed paint flakes to begin to clog outlets and filters. It may be that the preparation and the paint spec was suspect in those cases but a paint application requires preparation perfection?

    You did really good thinking and planning out this major job. Well done for a big step forward.

    Nothing seems to phase you no matter how much of a problem it is. Outstanding job, guys.

    maybe 'Gore' would sponsor you by giving you a few Free rolls of their Gasket Tape so that you can use same as gasket material for the lids of your Water and Diesel tanks…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8XPg5WA-8s

    Porque não colocou um aquecedor portátil dentro do tanque após jatear assim ele secaria!!

  72. Tim Langan says:

    Don’t know if you thought about it…your boat, in it’s current state, is now valued at three times what you paid for it. On your sail plan – consider a cutter rig. I am envious.

  73. dynamite650 says:

    Lol you think you got a good price at 25 dollars for a day of work lol I make that an hour smh the struggle real down there

  74. Dan Elisha says:

    You pay only $25 a day?Your poor worker you treat him like a slave!

  75. KC askmelater says:

    It's looking good, how much diesel can you carry?

  76. Merc 015837 says:

    If you're coming to the states, be advised that $25US for his "day's work" is what we here in the states pay for gasoline to get back and forth to a job like that.

  77. Brendan Flynn says:

    I think I see the results of your welding job at the end! It looks very nice. 👍

  78. fizmo100 says:

    I don't understand why you went to all the trouble of stripping the tanks completely, most of the paint looked perfectly fine – you could have done some localised coating repairs using a needlegun and some sandpaper to feather the edges of the existing paint, and been done in a day. Diesel is an oil anyway, so it will protect the steel if the paint breaks down. I've inspected 20 year old diesel storage tanks on offshore oil rigs that have never been coated and the steel is in perfect condition.

    I don't want to be negative, I love your channel and I'm really excited to see you get your boat back in the water, I just feel like you gave yourselves a massive headache here that you could have avoided.

    "Nigh-Trial" or Ny-Try-all .. an elastomer designed to deal with grease and oils. Did you consider using a sealant instead of a gasket?

  80. Micheal Bee says:

    I've learned so much from you two — mostly about how ignorant I am about boats, modern materials, and planning. Hopefully, after your video guidance, I will sail on calmer seas — or at least have tight hatches. 😉

  81. Rick Wag says:

    Really cool people

  82. shane john says:

    Could you not have taken the Tanks out of the boat? It would have made a 1 or 2 days job?

  83. soliv27 says:

    You're making a huge beautiful job. Tough, precise…. And you make it so alive it is kind of piece of art !
    Thanks for sharing so many details, this gives to learn a lot. Making a boat is hard but also an adventure, with materials, machines, workers, people, and the boat is awaking day after day…
    Very useful and joyful channel !

  88. Bryon Ensminger says:

    Dont you guys have bad blasting down there its like sand blasting but with tiny plastic beads it will cut down to bear metal fast as sand blasting but no water no danger to your lungs and when your done just shop vac them up and reuse them we use them for blasting cars up here in the states

  89. Jan Roar Bernhardsen says:

    Wow what a big job. I dont think i will paint a dieseltank 🙂 I think you are clever, never giving up. I wish that you will have easier task now, so you will end up in the ocean . Enjoying your beautiful boat. I wish you an nice week. Best wishes from Jan in Norway

    It was wonderful and surprising to see you at the Miami Boat Show. Of course now that I look in the comments, I see that you posted the event. I wish I had not been working the event, so we could have had a nice long chat. However, i wanted you to know that I very much appreciate your efforts and wish both the best. Again if you are ever in Key West I would love to host you.

    Just a short message to show that your videos are also highly appreciated in Holland. Nice engineering and thorough approach to this refit. Don't worry too much about rambling. There is only one problem with your videos: they are too short…😁 success and hope to see you make miles in the near future.
