⛵️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

  1. Love the color y'all, but OMG that dark chaparral on the boat to the left of y'all's @ 10:43. Chaparral is my fav lol.

  2. Very cool, I paint automobiles for a living, and this hole series is very interesting to me. Thanks for the update, i will continue to follow ya'll.

  3. Saludos amigos, es sorprendente la transformación que están logrado, un saludo desde cd valles San Luis Potosí Mexico

  4. I like the color of the boat in the bay next to you. Black on Orange. But I know yours will be pretty too. I am looking forward to seeing the finished job.

  5. Parecen dos niños con un juguete nuevo, y que no le han terminado de conocer todas sus características, del mismo jajajajajajjajajaajajajajajajajajaja. El color naranja significa entusiasmo y exaltación, y cuando es muy encendido o más bien rojizo, denota ardor y pasión. Kandinsky afirma que el anaranjado suscita sentimientos de fuerza, energía, ambición, determinación, alegría y triunfo. … Siempre esperamos que las cosas de color naranja tengan buen sabor.

  6. They look like two children with a new toy, and they have not finished knowing all its characteristics, of the same hahahaahahahahahahahahaahahahaha! . The color orange means enthusiasm and exaltation, and when it is very bright or rather reddish, it denotes burning and passion. Kandinsky states that the orange arouses feelings of strength, energy, ambition, determination, joy and triumph. … We always expect orange things to taste good.

  7. wow, without being there and seeing the finish, i admired the fill , sanding and priming process. As a finisher of wood , metals, fiberglass, i was watching the color coat being put on and i can say that the couple minutes i saw of video , i noticed that the painter was using short and spontanious wanding of the sprayer. We finishers have a saying referring to paint of course.." A good lay, has to have a steady, long stroke." and you watch your over lapping of spay because the over lapping is heavier than the non overlapped sprayed surface. then the next coat you spay alternately leveling out the amount of mass on the surface.. Just something i noticed. I love the Color….

  8. If you guys real tend to do a lot of cruising, you should still think about welding a swim platform onto the stern. It will save you a ton of time and effort getting into and out of the boat from the water or dinghy. I realize it would be a total pain to do it now that you’ve got it so beautifully painted, but I think it would still be worth it in the long run.

  9. Great Job up to you about the next lot of paint but Smooth = speed in the water ,you might like to ask the painter if he can add some silver flake's to the last lot of paint to make it stand out again your choice .love the Vlog Guys.

  10. Don’t worry about the rain when there is so much sunshine in your hearts.
    I love watching Luca walk in fast forward, as he reminds me of the old Charlie Chaplin black n white movies.

  11. Love the color! Terrible painting technique though! Why not use a pressure pot? Chase all of the orange peel until it's gone.

  12. A suggestion! You may like to keep a few cans of the paint colour in storage. Then in future when you touch up scratches, the paint colour matches and is not so obvious. I have found that after a few years, the colour sold by the supplier changes even slightly and touch ups are nearly impossible to match.

    I enjoy the way you speak English. English is obviously not your home language but you do very well speaking on the videos – way better than I could if I spoke in any language other than English. If anyone does not like how you speak English, they are not forced to watch your videos.

  13. Thats brilliant, when you finish this boat, you can sell it and buy a bigger one with the profits, and start again

  14. Very good choice Roberta & Duca because when "the Boat" is on the large Oceans often it is difficult to be seen, so at least with an Orange color you have a good chance to be visable. 🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠

  15. Gr8 colour guys. Just my opinion, once u r sailing and having the time of your lives u won't even notice those little imperfections that your concerned about. Don't worry about what others might think, u have to live with it and as long as there's good coverage and I suspect there's plenty, with all those coats of paint, u don't have to worry about exposure damage. That's just my opinion. Looking forward to seeing what u decide. Dreamy😍👏

  16. I love your enthusiasm for the colour, and I hope you are planning on keeping the boat for a while, if you ask any broker what colour boats are the hardest to sell, they will tell you yellow, orange and red, and followed by green.

  17. Another great video mate love you guys and your enthusiasm rebirthing this vessel 🚢 as always love from Australia 🇦🇺 mate 💙

  18. The flaws of paint are easier buffed than totally perfect. I have painted hundreds of autos and there is no perfect paint job. All have flaws and get buffed out. To have enough paint to buff, now thats the goal!! Thanks for the scoop. Go Big Orange. Be careful putting white over orange, you could get bleed through.

  19. You guys rock, I started watching you two The first time was the first day with the boat, i Have watched all your boat videos and have learned about your mini house build, so i watched them as well, I can tell, because you so particular with your work, that you also care and thats what i like about your videos, Im a Kiwi living in Australia but will be going home shortly, keep up the great work Roberta and Duca, ill keep watching. My name is Paul but everyone calls me Ninja Paul because i teach Ninjutsu and have been learning the art for 40 years, Ill see you next time.
    ™Ninjapaul

  20. guys I think you are too perfectionist, the first thing that should be a boat is functional, beauty is something secondary, good luck

  21. Hi Guys, love the videos and watching your progress, even though I get seasick on a dry dock,
    One question: do you have sailing experience or will you be taking lessons?
    Regards
    P.s you don’t talk too much, I love your accents.

  22. The guys who do this for a living really earn their money. So much prep work, so much sanding before you get to paint or filler.

    Love the colour. Orange is my favourite colour.

  23. I like the daring color! I am really happy for the boat and for you guys!! At the same time I feel you cheat a bit. I did the same but on my own. Two part PU paint, Outside, jumping on every day with not to much sun and heat, no wind and of course no rain to get some paint on. To remove the paint without losing the Galvanization I used a 4 cm wide chisel / paint knife and a small hammer. Have been working on it the last 3 years and almost finished. Only the top half of the wheelhouse to go.

  24. So did you use an epoxy primer and 2nd coat followed by a urethane clear coat? Perhaps a below waterline antifouling paint? The new paint probably cost more than the boat cost 😊. Better on the old earth to repurpose than otherwise. Enjoying you channel.

  25. Congrats to both of you who had a curage to choose this beautiful colour and to the painters who do a very nice job.
    !!!

  26. Na minha humilde opinião.. caprichem o máximo agora, deixem perfeita a chaparia externa…até pq, depois de estar na água, para tirá-lo novamente é complicado. Está ficando show.. boa sorte

  27. Wow, yep, looks great mate. Very impressive, stands out beautifully. She's going to look great in the full sun, on the water, gorgeous… Love receiving your videos guys, see you next week, have a good one… ;-}

  28. It's so beautiful, it's got a lot of labor on it. We are looking forward to the day when it will land in the water..
