We get to work on a salvage boat after driving it over from the Bahamas to Florida. We haul her out in Riviera beach and start ripping yards and yards of rotten/wet balsa core out of her hulls. We leave no stone unturned as try to find good dry core throughout her hull. We also have 2 new videographers arrive who are eager to get started and seek a life on the ocean.

    How safe is the boat in the shipyard, no one is there to check that nothing is stolen, big risk I see.

    Balsa wood, I never would of believed it. Is it for buoyancy? Has such little strength. Insulating value instead of foam?

    Hi, Unfortunately, you made some serious mistakes in your repairs. especially with the large fiberglass parts, the transitions are too sharp-edged. You should have sanded the transitions much more gently so that a large-area connection is created between the old and the new laminate. This way, there are no weak points. In your approach, you built a predetermined breaking point into the boat. I am sending you a link that tells you how to do it right. The video is in German, but just in the pictures you can see very well what I mean. So it's done right. And above all, the hull retains its stability. Greetings from Germany.

    Hey, this is a bit of a long shot! but if you guy's need anything, any help I would absolutely enjoy giving a helping hand. I have many tasks I am good at! Good at all master of none.... built a few houses never built a boat or even sailed. it's always been a dream to fix one up and sail. It would be absolutely insane to help with this journey

    Ya know, just the fact that “quality” boat builders are still using wooden cores for their boats is a travesty. Considering their are viable options like king starboard and sea cast just reinforces that most f them are more concerned with profit over quality.

    A trick you might already know, when using a straight edge over a high surface, rub a bit of graphite (lead pencil will do in a pinch) on the edge of the straight edge and the graphite will show the high spots until you get down to the level you want. Reapply the graphite as often as you need and try to keep it off the low areas.

    Colin, isn't there some kind of light-weight, nonporous, synthetic material the boat builders could use for their cores, rather than that very absorbent balsa?

    What kind of fiberglass are you guys using to do this because every time I do a fiberglass it’s never been perfect for the last time I used it to repair my Jetske I couldn’t get a clean look out of it no matter how much I sanded I did three layers to right on the nose/bow

  • mofosamo

    After his experience with his own boat, U think he might open up some internal panels to look at the main structure. Especially after these boats have been slammed by waves up and down while they were half beached.

    • mofosamo

      But it is not like he is going to live on these boats. He said he is just fixing them up with his mate to flip.

    • j rain

    Not sure if you can get air there but an air hammer with a chisel blade works awesome for removing balsa core. I fixed A LOT of core on a sisu 22 and that’s the only way to do it. Awesome work

  • Chilly

    What's up with the shit music? I can't hear you talk, at this point there is no point in trying to finish the video. I'm not in a club....

    • Chilly

      @Sailing Parlay Revival somewhere around 5:50 ish the hip-hop starts and whatever Colin is trying to say I can't hear it because of the music.... 🤷🏿‍♂️ At that point there is no reason to watch.

    • californiakayaker N6GRG
      californiakayaker N6GRG

      To tell you the truth, it probably won't matter , I'm not buying it. But, after what I've seen with several Cats , if I do buy a cat, it won't be one with any water stains on the plywood.

  • skaraborgcraft

    I know the hulls are laid up in polyester resin, but repairs i have seen have always used epoxy because of the extra bond strength when cutting out large patches of hull. .......but its not my boat.

    Peel ply does an amazing job keeping the layups smooth and taking the gloss away, yet leaving a texture.. I've never used it with polyester resin but when I built my boat with epoxy resin, I discovered an interesting peel ply trait. I would pull the peel ply off in the dark and it would create a streak of light as it releases from the lay-up. I'm not sure if this was static electricity or whatever but it was pretty cool. Not sure if it will work with polyester.

  • bigwolloper

    Love them nice simple repairs. Thought mine would need a few patches.... Upto now I've laid down over 300sq M of glass.😁😁 Never mind almost ready to go back in as soon we get past this bloody vivid and I can get to it. See you on a wave somewhere.
