Painting the Boat – Part 12 – Spraying Coal Tar Epoxy

Painting the Boat – Part 12 – Spraying Coal Tar Epoxy


brought it out for a test this morning
and it did not work that we found our problem the suction pipe is jammed we put point ounces of dividing akashi’s
either we used for the last run of a cleaning profit that’s why it’s dirty in
there it’s a five-gallon close to furs I guess hold that for a
while let me scrape this one down now the difference one yesterday and
today is today we’ll finish the whole boat on the outside and we even came
back down here and start over it was rolling on because it gives it a nice
and look on the outside a little better finish and we use five gallons with the
rollers up here doing two coats five gallons with the sprayer only gets you
about halfway so we’re putting on a lot more paint with a sprayer as we should
be it’s 20 mils thick on the wet gauge so if you’re gonna roll your boat you
probably ought to think about putting on three coats with the roller I think the
thing I like doing the most is having a little bit overlap at the pattern before
and then I’ll come back to go across it perpendicular to this way we’ll do that and we’ll come back do a
vertical spray and I have a wet Tim gage in my pocket that I’ve used and used to
what it looks like and how much I have to go out so I have to go I get on 20
mils milk and a lot of paint and three people that the american thing milk is
not a millimeter it’s a thousand seven inch we’re talking about paint and I want a little more paint on than
normal right here so we’ve gone over this with like four coats this is a
water line where stuff floating in the water will pump into the boat we talk
across it with vertical path okay here’s the results it’s all done
exterior of the hole yesterday Bart and I spent three hours putting two coats of
paint on with rollers on this side top half that was five gallons of paint
which turns out isn’t enough it’s just not enough coverage not enough gallons
to get the coverage you want about 75 square feet for per gallon for this coal
tar today with the sprayer we put on 35 gallons in three hours same time we
spent yesterday and we covered the entire boat and we got it 20 mils thick
we can came back over here to where we had rolled it yesterday and sprayed
another layer on top of that so if you’re asking yourself is it worth
working with the airless prayers yes it is well the today’s jobs that turn the
rudder back over thing paint the other side I tell you I don’t think there’s
anything quite as important for a sailors to learn how to attach ropes and
haul loads or for underwater so that’s what I think it was interesting at the
open house yesterday there’s a guy here named Rock and he had actually flipped
his catamaran right-side up again after hurricane had thrown it out of the water
and up on to a parking lot upside down on top of some other boats fascinating
story and a great design for doing that a lot of cool thinking out there I have
the advantage of three attachment points and three come along so I can control
the load real easy so all I do is lift and load up and then I’m trying a rope
underneath it attached it here and now we pull it back up pretty easy job set
it back down had the other side the amazing thing was rocket figure out how
to do this boat flip one crane and one extra winch you can read all the books
watch all the videos you like but you will not get good at this until you get
off your couch to get out there and start trying and that won’t happen for you until you
get the intestinal fortitude to get off that sofa and get out there and start
that big project you’ve always been promising yourself you do some of the
best comments I get or things like it I haven’t watched your videos in a couple
years because I got inspired to go build my house that I’ve always wanted or my
car or whatever and if you’re gonna build a boat you’re probably gonna still
watch other boat builders it’s what I do well it’s the volume that comes out the
gun – that’s the deal yeah okay I just got through finished
spraying inside the cabins and let me let me show you what I’m wearing mother
I have my respirator I have my goggles I got a hat I got long sleeves I got all
the shit now here’s the other thing I don’t need you to be my fucking mother
okay nobody needs you to be their mother everybody that sprays this shit knows
what the warning label says okay you let us make the decision about what we’re
gonna do with our lives amongst you can go take a flying leap okay if you
unsubscribe from my channel because you’re pissed off about this fine
unsubscribe I don’t want your kind of advice anyway okay I had a mother she
was a great mom don’t have a mother anymore that’s just perfect for me
that’s the way I want to live my life nobody else in our society needs you to
be their mother either okay I am fighting the war against people being
mothers when they don’t need to be mothers okay now if your mom okay be a
mom okay I had a great mom you know don’t go in
swimming an hour after you eat all that stuff fine you don’t need to carry that
on in our society so if that’s your job in your life
get off my channel okay thanks yes I feel better no yeah it’s a good
thing let me try to rephrase what I said before a little kinder slightly Canada
the world is full of cowards and wimps and pussies and we don’t need to go
around and couraging them the people we need to encourage are the ones that are
stretching to change themselves to make a difference to step out onto the edge
to do something that where they’re probably going to fail those are the
brave people in the world I’m trying to make myself into one of those kind of
people and we support that effort and this channel is all about supporting
them and destroying anybody who attacks those type of people and so we’re at war
the enemy here is the ones that want to tell you that you can’t do it we want to
tell you that how to do it that you’re doing it wrong and they’re doing that
because they’re not doing it themselves and they’re afraid of what you’re doing
you threaten them by your achievements because they’re too afraid to fail
they’re cowards and so do we nurture cowards and allow cowards to use this
channel as a platform the answer to that is no we don’t we will crucify you
and then we’ll block you and we have no problems doing that whatsoever
so this isn’t the place for you I’m sorry because you know you only live
life once and you ought to make the most of it and if you’re afraid of it you’re
gonna die without your dream being fulfilled
that’s too bad you

  1. After watching this a second time, I couldn't agree more. I get offering advice to a young person who doesn't know better, but Doug is a grown ass man. Thanks for having the courage to tell the keyboard warriors to piss off. If I could subscribe twice to make up for any candy ass that unsubscribed, I would.

  2. I AGREE WITH YOUR RANT!!! I had to do CEU;s for my contractors license on Thursday. The regulations that are being created are stupid. OSHA IS OUT OF CONTROL ON SILICON DUST!!! Seriously a 7k fine for drilling a hole in concrete without a dust collection system or cutting concrete without enough water. Stupid stupid stupid.

  3. I agree with your safety commentary. I work for a commuter railroad, and in the thirty years I've been there, the safety culture has progressed from nearly non-existent (which obviously is an issue in itself) through several iterations to a nanny state where it's nearly impossible to get anything done. You need to find a balance that allows you to work at a level where you feel safe but can still be productive. "Can this task/machine/position hurt or kill me?" is a perfectly legitimate question, and it's one you should obviously ask yourself. But if the answer is "Yes, but I can avoid most of the risk by XYZ", then…do it. Mitigate or avoid obvious hazards, don't rush tasks where there may be hidden hazards, and think before you act. Enjoying your videos immensely, and thanks for taking the time to include us in your process.

  4. I just love your attitude Doug, and I'm also sick of all this "pussy arse shit" that these "do good know it alls" go on with. I do things my way too. Love your comments.

  5. Wow! That is one sharp looking paint job. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the water. It looks like something you'd see in a James Bond movie. Very cool.

  6. Sir, even though you’re one of the main causes of global warming! I still care about you. Did you check the paint labels instructions to make sure your are not going to get cancer with those nasty products you’re using? Here in “California” my perfect home state, we cares about people life journeys, so just for your information, if you look at the label you can check and ensure that that we haven’t label your product as carcinogenic.
    I just want you to be SAFE. And please use SPF 30 to protect your skin, have a good day Sir.

    Lol

  7. 50 years ago people built skyscrapers without safety harness. Now… I cant climb in a man lift with out some safety nazi screaming about safety… yes safety is good. You wonder why large construction projects take so long to complete? Cause you lose 2 hours a day conforming to every letter of the safety shenanigans

  8. Doug, do you use the salt water test tub that you used in the past on paints & coatings?
    Just wondering if you are going to test the finish up coatings you just used.

  9. I have to thank Doug for once again giving me a little kick up my backside. I've been watching these since your first steel delivery. Every time my depression starts to down spiral I go back and watch Doug and get the fuck off the couch. Brovo Zulu from this old pit snipe. Fuck the naysayers.

  10. True f'ing story!! My dad and I were just talking about how ridiculous the safety police has gotten over the last decade or 2. Wanna talk about nutz…… I used to work for a large diesel manufacturer (won't say which one, but you own one of their engines) and it has gotten so insane that they literally have a safety police group walk around looking for "potential" safety hazards and get their fellow employees written up or fired for some retarded shit. It's like working for a Nazi regime there.

  11. I think you are talking about many college professors. "Do as I say because I read a book on how to do it', never actually doing it themselves.

  12. y support your war against the safety nazi,s! Yust use common sense and you will be fine! Love your rant about that! !

  13. Hey seeker. I don't want to say anything about your health I like what you do, but I have some accident in house refurbishing and I saw in some video something like superglue. Did you remember the brand ore name of it?

  14. Thanks Doug for your honesty…..The way you witness to us all gives us courage to go out and do something GREAT!!

  15. Loved the rant.Doug is right,get out there and do something with your life.This world now is too full of scared people who just criticize others to feel better. Way to go Doug.

  16. Unfortunately Doug you are correct, I couldn't agree more. keep up the good fight, can't wait to see your dream launch. stay safe and healthy. peace 😎

  17. YES,YES..he doesn't need another mother and most of us don't either!! Well stated my friend , now go build your boat!!

  18. I agree, health and saftey has gone nuts, could you imagine trying to invent the car in this day and age, ''I would like to propose my new invention, it is a metal box, has glass for windos, has 4 wheels, you fill it with a potentialy explosive liquid, it can travel at over 100 mph and carry 6 people''
    PS I'm a biker, hate cars

  19. Well said sir. Too many cupcakes and snowflakes. More money and advertising should be placed on trade schools or people will have no means to handle their own.

  20. lol No doubt. We have made a bubble wrap world and that has made lots of people afraid of any kind of risk. I am a 52yo woman. I started taking risks when I found a 350 cc Bulltaco engine and had my uncle help me rebuild it and put in on my go cart. Yea, those are scabs on my face in my 6th grade yearbook photo. Yea, it was worth it. Years later I broke a few fingers drilling holes into chromoly trailing arms. I broke a few ribs in the Mint 400. Broken ribs suck but again, yea, it was worth it. If you add up all my injuries, I spent about two weeks per decade of life laid up and contemplating my stupidity. My conclusion, yea, every single injury was totally worth it. You miss out on life if you don't get out and do it. You don't want to to take stupid or careless risks but there is risk in simply being alive. You can't eliminate all risk so you must manage it. You risk money/time to build a project. You risk hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars building something that may or may not work as expected. I have watched Doug here, building Seeker for years. He is taking a huge risk. He is risking money, time, injury etc but he is working towards a huge pay off. The only sure thing in life is, if you don't take the risk, there will be no reward. It's your choice. Do you want to take as little risk as possible and simply exist for 80 years or so, or do you want to take some risks and make the ride more interesting?

  21. All I can say is wow. You are building a boat (Your Dream). I can't believe anyone would say anything about the way you should or shouldn't build it. I've been watching since the first steel showed up in your yard. I've learned a bunch of stuff about casting, and really enjoy watching because you help people learn new things. Doug your doing an amazing job. And yes you have shown me that one should never put off until tomorrow what could be done today. And I will guess that painting the inside of the boat with a sprayer has to rank right up there with getting a anal exam with a hot poker. It's awesome and one of these days you will be on the water making repair videos. And someone probably will ask why you didn't just order a new one. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Doug, that was your best rant yet! People are afraid of those who step outside of the box, because it exposes them. I even got sh*t from them because I just started restoring a 12’ aluminum boat. Their comments make me work harder just to prove them wrong.

    Cheers mate!

  23. Every time i read a warning label, every time i see "no user serviceable parts inside", i will think of that "mom" rant now. Its so true in current society life, everyone thinks they know whats best for you. I'm open to suggestions and criticism, i'm not saying its my way or the highway, but if you start the sentence with you should do… Then i'm instantly turned off to what your about to say. Now if you start off with hey how about trying… Thats different in my mind. I love to learn, its the reason i watch YouTube while i work and in my spare time, and i watch channels like SV Seeker where they are doing stuff hands on. I think i could rebuild one of those paint sprayers and not be worried about trying to now. But you just gotta get in there and get your hands dirty. I was watching this video while tearing apart the timer for our clothes dryer tonight, would run but not heat, new timer $60, well if its already broke why not take it apart not out nothing. Contacts were crap, took them out lightly sanded them, put back together and guess what, dryer works just fine and cost me nothing but my time. Don't be afraid to dig in people!

  24. Well spoken Doug, the world is half full of PC F…wits whose only claim to fame is they own a laptop and think their experts in everything !! They can only type with one hand for the other hand is constantly vigourously in use!! Cheers from Down Under

  25. Doug, I think your amazing…..What you have done is nothing short of miraculous ….watch lots of your vids…..Don't hold back if you feel it, let it out….suppression isn't healthy…..
    It is thanks to people like you many good and great things have been made.

    All our very best from Northern England.

  26. Пасоны, подскажите, что Даг так ругается? В чем причина? Заранее благодарю.

  27. Amen shipmate. We only learn from our failures. As adults we accept the risks for the chooses we make. Don't be afraid to make mistakes or screwups. It will happen no matter what. Acknowledge it, learn from it and carry on!! A ship never goes straight; it always moves forward. Keep doing what you do!!

  28. I love your way of doing things and your whole mindset behind the things you do. Keep up the great work I can't wait to see the boat on the water.

  29. Well said Doug, I get fed up when watching some great achievements on YouTube then some bright spark pops up telling those people what they should’nt do when they clearly haven’t done much or any of it at all themselves. What was it the mountaineer replied when asked “Why did you climb that mountain to die” his reply “I didn’t I climbed it to live”.

  30. Oh, Thank you SO much for telling those white gloves, law book readers and pointing finger people an honest word.

    I`m so happy now, and it must feel great. Now I can sleep 😉

  31. Why are you so angry? Your calling people cowards? Seems your being the Mother now. There are millions that will never be able to accomplish their dreams and to call them cowards is really an asshole move. You’re getting help from volunteers and that’s great, I seriously doubt you posses the skills to have accomplished this on your own, how much of that help did you pay for, or did your online celebrity gain you that assistance, some thing those cowards don’t have, there is no group standing around waiting to help someone make their dreams come true, well, there is for you, but not for most. Your just another self righteous little cur. Now I look forward to your blocking and your response.

  32. As some one with two invisible disabilities I share this sentiment, every one tells you to do XYZ, even family, tells you that you have to have job or have or have shut up listen and do what you told. meanwhile I am here having to fight to explain, no it's not an excuse I am legitimately trying to do the best I can, your version of your ideals is harmful, if any one is going to know best is, it's the person who is doing it, and doing there best to do it in a constructive manner. Even after all these years of doing this, people seem to not trust that you or me, that we can do the job with knowledge or logical thought…

    Think this is why I am such huge fan of this channel.

  33. Well said Doug, I wish other YouTubers had the courage to say what you just did. Thank you for what you do. BTW my wife and I love the mugs we bought from your junk store.

  34. I agree with letting people make decisions for themselves, but I mentor a robotics club,the last thing I need is someone putting an eye out in my shop.

  35. I agree with what you said. I work for a property management company that require hazard assessments, safety plans, we are insured three times and does it make us any safer… nope. Use your head and get the work done so we can go home. It's all nonsense.

  36. Good rant. In the software industry, too, there are two kinds of people — those who know how to code and those who don't. Those who don't are fond of joining standards committees, where they can write documents telling those who do how to do their jobs.

  37. Omg, I’m so with you on the safety police. I’m forced to wear a seatbelt, etc. Next they will make everyone wear a life jacket and be clipped in all the times . It’s my life, I know when I need it and when I don’t.

  38. New T-shirt Idea "WE ARE SEEKER" a boot in the butt and off the poop-deck ya go. The dread pirate Doug is using "The Plank" in the comments.

  39. It is amazing how nice it looks painted! It looked good with the gray but now it looks amazing! You are doing such a good job and it shows!

  40. I ave been watching your videos for a while but subscribed when I heard your "don't be mother" speech. Brilliant!
