It's time we get all the gel coat and fiberglass dust out of the boat so we can move in! We weren't able to contain the mess so we knew there would be hours and hours of cleaning. We weren't wrong. The dust got EVERYWHERE but with an air compressor, a lot of rags, a shop vac and air's now safe to move in :-)
Thanks for watching-
With love

*Our Boat*
2008 Beneteau 49
3 cabin 2 head
Westerbeke generator
Mast, sails and rig are in excellent condition and in storage
Here's what we *think* we know about her past. Keep in mind we bought her at auction without ever meeting the owner! The owner was sailing along and ran aground - hard. Hard enough that the keel pivoted and pushed the aft end up into the hull. This force cracked the internal grid in several places and broke a portion of the grid free from hull. At some point an inspection was done, insurance was called and decisions were made. See for how we came to own her!

If you are going to use the air hose to get rid of dust get a 15 dollar box fan and have it in an ext door blowing out. All that air born dust goes outside. I do it with drywall dust, works fantastic. GOOD LUCK, NEW SUBSCRIBER‼️👍👍. Vinny 🇺🇸

You should invest in the rope lights you can tuck them in behind or under the trim and change the color depending on the mood of the day

Take the bag out of your wet / dry shop vac and put a couple gallons of water in the bottom and the dust will go in but not sneak back out , take it from a guy who has sanded and cleaned up the dust from millions of board ft of drywall

Nice to see you two get your home back together. And yes, those Christmas lights are lovely, and yes, using the basin in your heads for the first time, is a milestone - a milestone indeed, marking months and months of hard, and monotonous work, that many would have walked away from. You deserve everything this boat can give you - you have worked so hard for it. Be proud, and know that together, you can work through anything that may be thrown at you in the future. You are a great team!

Solar fans in hatches can be a problem on the forward half of the boat if you're planning on doing any serious sailing, unless you have a means of sealing them when the foredeck is awash with seawater!

Probably way too late but using a Festool vacuum with a Dust Deputy would have saved you 90% or more of your dust accumulation. Expensive but used in woodworking all the time. The Jet air filtration will do just a OK job. If you really want clean air check out the Rabbit MinusA2 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. It was designed to be used in Cigar smoking bars. It works exceedingly well. Check the article,”Dust Collection --- The Clean Air Myth” on Highland Woodworking’s, Down to Earth Woodworking. Steven Johnson write the article. This filtration system really does a great job and may be something you could use in your travels.

hi guys. first off i'm very impressed with everything I've seen you do with regard to this project. The reason I'm posting is "tack cloth".......For different reasons I've experienced the need to remove dust that just seems as though I'm only pushing it around. If you're not familiar with tack cloth you might consider looking into it. It does work. it may prove too costly for you, or you may look into making your own. Best wishes!!

Amazing work you guys. For your bow bed check out "Sheex" fitted sheets. We used them on a similar shaped mattress on our Searay. They're a combination of elastic and drawstrings to fit them to your mattress. They are great for boats and super comfortable.

I just watch the video that you published on Dec 25. Some how I missed that one. In any case I loved it. First of all you don't need to tell ever one how much you spend. None of anyone's business. It won't apply to anyone else anyway. Every project is different. If the want prices then they can watch other channels. Parlay had a break down . So do other channels. Brian sailing. Ship happens won't say either, same reason as yours. As far as your painting and drawing goes . Once a you have children your life changes. You will no longer have a lot of free time. My wife and I raised 6 of them . If I was to do it over again we wouldn't change a thing. But our lives did change. Doing another QNA? personally I think you should do more. Maybe 2 or 3 times,a year . By the looks you enjoyed it as well. . Different types of videos. Variety is the spice of life. I think that if you can then put variety in your video's. I mean to watch someone standing at the helm steering the boat. Would not be exciting in my books. Now I have a few questions of my own. Are yous taking and sort of sailing classes. Are you going to get your diving certificates. That's all for now. I really enjoy your channel. Keep up the good work.

Is the shop vac recycling the small particle dust? Mine does! I finally figured out that I needed an double fine micron exhaust filter to clean the air coming out of the stupid shop vac... Yikes, I wasted so much time cleaning the same surfaces over and over. That dust is so fine...

My wife and I lived in our house while we renovated and remodeled every room during the seven year long project. We moved our bed to several rooms and draped plastic to keep the dust contained. We worked 7 days a week for long periods of time and we had a wonderful time; still happily married. After all we did, we didn't have the challenges you two have faced and conquered. I loathe fiberglass dust, and I started to itch just watching you clean for what must have been days! On the bright side, you now know every centimeter of your boat and every hose, wire, switch and fitting. Looking forward to following your sailing adventures, as well.

Being a woodworker, I find when I blow sawdust, it just sends it all over again, especially the fine stuff. I only blow areas I can't vacuum after a very good vacuum, but it means that then there has to be follow-on vacuuming. With fine dust, I am hoping you were using High Efficiency bags and filter in the Shopvac, otherwise the vacuum can spread the fine dust that gets through all over too. The good bags are more expensive, but well worth it. Also, I have the same Jet Air Filtration System. In your case, I would sure hope it is set up with both inner and outer filters. A 1 micron, washable, inner filter is available (see Amazon). The outer filters are typically 5 microns, but it does help to change it out frequently, and washable electrostatic versions are available as well. All-in-all, it looks like you did a great job. I am glad you were serious about cleaning out the fiberglass and epoxy dust. Frankly, I would suggest mounting and operating that Jet filtration for a while, as the dust will continue to drift, settle, and blow around in the boat.

Couple of those backpack blowers or a big 60" air moving fan would have made the job a lot easier. :) Suck all the air out of the boat and just use the compressor to stir up the dust... Started doing that in remodels years ago. Cleanup is literally a breeze. :)

Brett, you asked about the solar powered vents... They still make them, but at about 10 to 20 X the price...(|6880|2290139 ) but you can restore yours to good function with replacement motors and fans from desktop computer parts. Disassemble one of each style/model to find the voltage, fan diameter etc so you can search sources like Microcenter, Amazon, eBay etc looking for X voltage / XX mm diameter computer fans. Good Luck

Too late to help you now, but if you hold the end of the vac hose right next to the compressor nozzle, the dust is sucked up right away and you don't have to chase it about. Use quick puffs of air and you'll be done quicker.

I would (I know it sounds crazy, but think about it) take out all the fabric and just use a high pressure washer. The water will together with the fibreglass dust find their way to the bilge, where it will be pumped out. The wood will not be harmed (if vaped dry afterwards) and the electric cables will just be fine.
