⛵️We FINALLY painted our abandoned sailboat 🤩(after 22 years on the hard)!! #100 (painting part 2)


Are you guys ready to see the biggest
transformation so far on this channel? Yeah, today we’re gonna transform
this boat into a fresh brand new colorful boat. This is gonna be weird. We’ve been waiting for this moment for a long long time. By the way… if you’ve just arrived here, this is part 2 of this episode. So you can pause this video and go to part 1 and then you come back. On part 1 we paint the boat from how it was, abandoned like this, and now it looks like this. And really soon it’s gonna look like… it’s a surprise. So, let’s I 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 Patrons (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!! Exciting day today! What we’re gonna do today? Moving day. Basically we are waiting for them to put
this boat down on the ground, so then… they can take our boat and
take all the way back there, right there. Yeah, what’s there? Painting cabin. Yeah, we’re gonna take the boat to the painting cabin because here is too dusty to paint the final
color of the boat. We still need to give another coat of primer, not… Like 3 coats of primer and then we can paint it with the final color. But we’re gonna do all that inside of the painting cabin. And that means that once we go in the
only way out is gonna be with a brand new painted boat. That’s exciting. It’s scary, but we can’t wait to see the boat on the actual final color. So, today is THE day. What is the color? No… You’re gonna see it after we open up the curtains of the painting cabin. So, let’s get started. But first let’s lift the Centerboard To lift the centerboard we use the mast. But as we don’t have the mast we need to use the jack to do the final… lift. Now we can move the boat. So, this is our new location. Old spot Time to go to the new place now. I’m tired. It seems like a quick thing to move the boat around but actually it takes some time. And we have a lot of belonging. Yeah, after a while in the same place we start accumulating things underneath the boat. So, we need to put everything together, now move there and then next week we move to another spot. Actually, that’s gonna be our spot. Do you see the first gray boat? After there that’s where we’re gonna go. But it’s gonna take like a week. (probably more) And then we need to install the hatches and we have a lot to do. A lot to do, yeah. And from there we come back to the first spot we were ever. I’m anxious to go back to the first one, that was the best place. Next to the coffee shop, you know… It’s much better. Less noise… a lot less noise. Less dust. Less dust, a lot less dust. 2 parts of Epoxy Primer We think the old water line is a little
bit lower than we need. So we are putting it a little bit up… like 8 centimeters. There is no way back now. Ready? There is a big hole here. I’m just gonna be like with a small spot of orange. Ginger. First coat Second coat Third coat Fourth coat Almost there. Not really. Actually we’re gonna stop after this coat. Because the weather is gonna change, so we knew that we need to stop at 1:30. And then we’re gonna wait
for this weather to get better, like a week. And after a week we’re gonna sand this, fix a few spots and then we give another 3 or 4 coats of polyurethane. And then the varnishing and then we’re gonna be done. It takes a while. And then the deck. And then we need to paint the deck. That’s another, yeah… Just wait. Be patient, we’ll get there one day. Eventually. Fifth coat Yeah, that’s it. Yeah, that’s it, the rain came back. As usual it’s already raining a lot I don’t know if you can tell, but it’s raining. But at least this time we got to paint the boat before the rain, and we had like two good days to dry the boat. And the boat is already on the final color.
I mean… we still didn’t 100% finish it, but you can tell how the boat is gonna look. Let’s check it out. What do you guys think? Isn’t that pretty? We have like 20 batteries to keep the color like that. Yeah, it’s like an LED color, right? No, not really. So, basically this have already 5 coats
of PU, polyurethane. But on the bottom of that we have 2 coats of primer, epoxy primer then we have fairing compound and then another 3 coats of primer and then a little bit more fairing compound to fix some mistakes. And then 5 coats of polyurethane and then… Come on. Confusing. They are already sanding the boat. Again. The reason for that is something that we
didn’t decide yet. The boat looks really good, you can see it here. But still there are a few small imperfections that maybe if we sand again and paint it again it’s gonna be better. Because this is 5 coats. We still have paint left so we are gonna give at least another 5 coats. But now we have one question that we cannot answer. We didn’t decide yet if in between these 5 coats and the next 5 coats if we are gonna apply an
extra small amount a really thin faring compound, just to make sure it’s really
really smooth. Or if we’re gonna just leave it like this and just spend another 5 coats of polyurethane, and then 5 coats of varnishing. Because once the boat is inside the water the water will reflects the waves and we cannot see the… We don’t know if it’s just something that we want to be too perfect or if it’s something that someone’s gonna see in the future. Maybe it’s like small defects that no one’s gonna actually see it. So I don’t… We don’t really know if it’s worth to apply another fairing compound layer and… We have until tomorrow to decide that. So, we’re gonna let you know. Yeah, by tomorrow we’re gonna decide it. And then if we decide not to use another layer of fairing compound we’re just gonna apply another 5 coats of polyurethane and then 5 coats of varnish. And the side of the boat is ready. I don’t know if you understood… let’s show how the… So, here is the toe rail and the tow rail is
gonna be white and an extra 3 fingers, around… Like 4 centimeters it’s gonna
be white. So that means that here is gonna be a white stripe. The same color as the deck. It’s not really really white, it’s more like a ice color. Just because this is a part of the boat that is easy to scratch, so if it’s white it’s easier for us to fix. Yeah, to repair. Because you can get a brush and fix. The orange with varnishing is not as easy to fix. The deck we didn’t paint with polyurethane yet. But, the good news is that we found the awl grip. That’s good. We have all the awl grip necessary now and that’s pretty good. That’s good news. Yeah, but I guess for this week its done, right? Because it’s raining and it’s gonna be raining for the entire week. So, we’ll need to wait for one week until
we can go back to the painting job. Just… let’s welcome our new Patreons. That’s good, yeah. Welcome on board, Michael, Dimitri, Jacqueline, Michael, Carlo, Mike, Mark, Joe, George, Michael. And we also want to thank the donations through our PayPal. Thanks so much, Clive and Jonas. Guys, thanks so much we really really really appreciate the support. And for those of you who don’t know… this is a weekly series. We are refitting this boat that was staying on the hard for 22 years and we produce one episode every Monday. 10 o’clock in the morning, Brazilian
time, every single week. But if you don’t want to do the math and check the time you can just subscribe and click on the little bell. So you’re gonna receive an email every
time we post a new video. She’s smart, see? I’m not that smart. Yeah, but basically we are just on the mission to put her back on the water and that’s… We thought it would take 3 months it’s more likely 5 months. But, still… We’re, you know… enjoying every single week. That’s… We’re having a good progress. It’s hard but it’s fun and it’s gonna be amazing when we see her in the water. Because she’s been sitting here for way too long. She deserves to go back to the water. Yeah. But I guess we’re talking too much, as usual. I mean, I’m talking too much. So, we see you guys next Monday. Beautician time. Beautician. That’s it, it’s good. Can I? Yeah. Join the crew
