I’m On A Boat- New Video Series

Just this last month we’ve started a new video series called “I’m On A Boat.”

It will cover all sailing projects and endeavors apart from our cruising on Velocir.  Here are the first three installments about a Camper Nicholson 31 owner fixing fiberglass, gelcoat blisters and running rigging.

Hope you enjoy!  And if you haven’t watched our other series “A Day in the Life: Cruising Albin Vega Velocir” you can watch at www.youtube.com/svvelocir

A guide to repair and fixing fiberglass blisters on boats. This is a common problem among sailboat hulls produced in the mid-seventies. Narrated by a Camper Nicholson 31 owner completing this project himself by prepping and filling his blisters with epoxy resin. An informative how-to on this topic with demonstration and step-by-step instruction.
Redoing the running rigging on a cruising sailboat involves measuring, measuring and measuring. Then we head over to Bacon Sails and Marine Supplies for a tutorial of the different standard line selections, discussing their uses, breaking strengths and design qualities. After we’ve made our selection, the handy line counter does its job and we have our new running rigging. http://www.velocir.com http://www.baconsails.com
Camper Nicholson 31 owner repairs cracks and crazing in the gelcoat on the hull. This is caused by impact to the hull, manufacturer error in too thick gelcoat and bending around forward bulkheads. He uses a rotary tool to grind the crack down to the fiberglass, then he fills it with and Interlux epoxy filler called InterProtect Watertite, uses a longboard sander to sand and then it is ready for painting. http://www.velocir.com
