Sail Life – Insulating the v-berth, part 2

Feb 2024 21
Sanding sucks! I finish sanding the inside of the hull in preparation for putting up stringers and wooden slats (called ceiling aboard a boat). Thanks to the awesome comments on my previous video I've learned that pine is not the best species of wood for this purpose. Thanks, guys! This is a lot of work but I think it'll make a huge difference when I move aboard the boat :) The video with my friend Doug: Random orbit sander: Cross level laser: source

I finally get to test fit the mahogany slats for the ceiling aboard Obelix! Yay! :) Looks pretty swanky if you ask me ;) And it'll keep me nice and warm once I move aboard the boat and finally become a full-time liveaboard :) source

I finally get to epoxy in the stringers in my v-berth. Soon I'll have a nice and comfortable v-berth to sleep in when I move aboard the boat. A little bit of insulation should go a long way in making life aboard more comfortable this coming winter. A big thank you to www.blackbearboatingandleisure.com for the free samples of MAS epoxies products. I loved working with both the thick and thin resins from MAS epoxies and I'm very much looking forward to shooting a "review" video sometime next week :) source

I want to add more insulation and also wooden slats in my V-berth. Once I move aboard the boat I want to be as comfortable as possible during the long cold winter. In this video, I remove strips of the old insulation to make room for the stringers I'll be securing the wooden slats to. The 'MAS epoxies' products I'll be using in this series are sponsored by www.blackbearboatingandleisure.com. Head over and check out their products! Don't forget to tune in for the review of the awesome products the sent me (should be available later next week) :) source
