Bringing Yabá from wreck to dreamy! Episode 22
In this episode Ben comes back from the future just to clarify something, we share massive spoilers, we finally introduce our wood of choice and we get building! Frames, planks, floor timbers... so much has happened! We hope you enjoy watching it! Xx

We are Ben and MP!
Recently we decided to purchase a two-masted 70ft wooden schooner in Brazil. The fun detail about our story is that the boat we bought was sinking and relying on many bilge pumps to survive so we had to lift it onto the dry to start a full refit. Once the boat was lifted (for the first time in her life) we realized that the works needed were a lot more than expected. Between bailing or accepting the challenge, we decided to go for the second option. Watch us as we bring Yabá back to life with the help of an amazing team of traditional shipwrights, sharing every phase of the process, overcoming the highs and lows and having fun along the way.

    • @Sailing Yabá As the boards were being cut, shouldn't they have had a space cut for caulking [[re installation? Sampson Boat Co., is a really good channel to watch as well. You can see the channels precut into the planks that leave a slight bit of room for the caulking.

  • Are there parts of the hull that are not replaced? 😮 With all the repairs done until now it is mostly a new build hull. That is really the better option than building a new one? Labor there must be extremely cheap. Materials also. Watching the process is really interesting. But in which way this makes any sense financially eludes me.

  • Dear Comment Jockeys, Please stop comparing this refit / rebuild to Tally Ho and other projects. This is not any of those and you are comparing apples and oranges and not being constructive at all. Some points to consider; Leo is a shipwright, these are owners. Completely different perspective and you should have different expectations. None of us were born a sailor or a shipwright. We all have to learn from somewhere and these two may surprise you. They are helping out to be involved, document the journey and are learning about their boat and boats in general. They never claimed to be shipwrights and say right in the intro that they love the ocean and chose this as a way to live. They love this boat, for whatever reason and this is their path. Maybe offer advice and ask questions instead of being a useless troll. This is Brazil, they are working on a Brazilian designed and built boat, you can't compare what is done elsewhere in the world to this. Every area of the world has different materials, techniques with varying results. Saying that these guys are doing a shit job because they aren't using the tools, techniques or materials that you or other SEworld creators use is plain ignorant. What have you made today? These shipwrights aren't random people off the street, this is a Brazilian shipyard, this is likely how wooden boat construction is done there and many other places in the world. Who are you to criticize how things are done on the other side of the world with the budget that they have? I see all kind of comments about the tools use, their "ship saw" not being proper, ect. Do you even watch the videos? They are in Brazil and make less than $2 an hour. You think they can just go out a pick up a ship saw? I'm pretty sure they have a literal boatyard of customers and repairs and this isn't their first week in business. They are wearing flip flops and sneakers. This isn't North America and no one likely has access to anything else. On that note, there is one commenter in particular who comments multiple times in every video that the workers are being exploited and that the owners are making serious bank at their expense. Give your head a shake, these guys are employing 1/2 dozen people just at the shipyard and pouring money into the local economy. If the shipyard was being exploited I don't think that they would be there on the world stage. I'm sure they all know that they are on SEworld. The owners also live there, that's why they bought the boat and brought it to the town they live in already. They aren't a bunch of foreigners exploiting locals. There is also a tremendous amount of work that goes into making videos that you don't see on screen. No one is becoming a millionaire on this channel. Check back when they have 5 million subs. Everyone who is saying that this boat will only last 10 years and not 100 years like Tally Ho should ask themselves where they heard that this boat is supposed to last 100 years? With the material and labour costs (which haven't been disclosed) perhaps they are paying 1/4 of the money and it will take 1/4 of the time it takes for Tally Ho and if they know up front what the expected life will be, then who cares? They both seem like genuine people who love what they are doing. While I find it funny that they have no idea what half of the boat parts are called, I also see them learning and growing with skills that will carry them through many future adventures and they are starting to get the terminology. If Sailing Yaba is reading this; that big timber on top of the floors is called a "keelson" in English. I didn't see an on screen correction for that one. I'm enjoying the content, great perspective. Look forward to the next one. Don't let the haters get you down. Fair winds!

  • The fasteners are not adequate, even if you follow with a stainless steel lag bolt.The wood is unprotected where they have been joined. This cannot be undone and is the point where substantially rot can occur. It is still not to late to walk away from this project, it has absolutely no integrity. At this stage rotten frames are being cut away and scabbing on new wood. Endless.

  • A weakening is commonly observed in the wood that surrounds corroding metal, such as nails, spikes, screws, bolts, and plates in house siding, rail ties, boat docks, highway trailer beds, and wooden vessels. Wet wood not only causes metals to corrode because wood is slightly acid, but when a metal fastener is embedded in wet wood, certain conditions are created that can accelerate the corrosion of the metal. The corrosion products often can result in slow deterioration of the wood sur-rounding the metal. Corrosion of the fastener with deterioration of the wood causes loss of strength to the joint and to the structural in-tegrity of the assembly. Weakened wood is frequently noted around nails in old, weathered house and barn siding that is wetted by rain and snow. The wood that surrounds the nail is usually stained black. "Iron Sickness" excerpt from the paper titled "DEGRADATION OF WOOD BY PRODUCTS OF METAL CORROSION"

    • Apparently the comment at 14:41 is just to silence some of the critics. Further along it is very obvious that no effort was made to coat planks or frames and no mating surfaces in any location were coated earlier. It is not like there is a shortage of wooden boat building knowledge available to those managing (mis-managing?) this project.

  • Stainless steel or Galvanized iron is still iron. You will still get iron sickness. Also Stainless steel doesn't work if it's in a non oxygen environment e.g below the water line. Stainless steel pits and corrodes internally.

  • Last week I watched your episode, typed in a bunch of comments, then managed to lose them. Then in despair and being tired I gave up and went to bed. I had put down a few thoughts about the interior cabin space that I want to try and retype. 1. The galley is awful: cramped, little natural light and awkward. Never use full sized house appliances: it's a waste of space and looks ridiculous. For me where you cook needs to be a space to enjoy and to be able to take in the scenery, as well to interact with others. The cook is not a servant and it bears pointing out that the cook is well positioned to poison everyone should they become aggravated. What to do? Your idea to make it part of the wheelhouse isn't bad, however that may cost a lot and there isn't a lot of room. There may also be safety issues with having the stove next to the companionway and wheel. And it would be cramped. (My solution below to create a real double salon and connected galley solves a lot of the problems) 2. Lighting is terrible: (part of the reason is the layout and how cut up the space is, see below) The portholes need work, but what that closed in space really needs are hatches. Light and at least a few that open for air and egress. 3. Layout is at best odd, like it was a guest cabin, small and cramped, for a larger home. Look to other types of sailing vessels for layouts to see what Yaba could be Your "living room" (it's supposed to be a main salon) is basically just a hallway. The fix is to remove the starboard cabin, and shrink the starboard head, which then gives you a double salon space that's directly connected to the galley. It could start to look like the SV is should and could be. And, for guests you will have more sleeping berths. Keep the day head (on port). Keep the smaller cabin (consider reorganizing). And keep the guest head; But make it smaller and a wet head (no separate shower). The result would be a large quite open space with 3 separate but connected spaces: the galley, and two salons, one with a mess table Main, captain's, cabin is a tutorial on wasting space. I would consider putting the berth lengthwise along the beam. or tight to the starboard side, so you have usable space, including enough for a cozy built-in settee on the port side. From what I can tell the interior space is traditional for this type of vessel, but in my view fails in virtually every category. You often said there's great storage in the vessel--I see the opposite. Look at other SVs and I think you will find that many potential storage spaces were not utilized. If what I've written sounded harsh, that was not the intent. I simply think there are some important decisions ahead of you that should include possibilities you may not have considered. Cheers from Vancouver, BC, Canada, Dawson ps. still love ya, and, what you are doing heartens me, Thanks

    • You're welcome Often times we are limited by what we are able to conceive. In your case, this adventure is all a learning curve, so you will/could be ready to take on the project once you have the experience only achievable by doing the the project. That's the difficulty. Despite no experience and limited technical know-how, there's quite a bit of positives. Basically you two: even embarking on this improbable project is a positive as is your relentless positivity. A can-do attitude is it's own reward. However, I think your biggest asset is that you are smart, have some transferable skills and are curious and willing to learn. With your tech skills, this is why I suggested researching other SV layouts--seeing them lets you know what is possible. We'll talk design later. But here too, limits are often in the mind. Cheers, Dawson

  • Great series guys, very entertaining! I have an idea for you, it's something I was going to do 20 years ago when I was living on my 41 Lord Nelson in Seattle but didn't. To get to the point, I was going to clad my frp hull under the waterline in copper sheet. I contacted 3M for help selecting an adhesive, they recommended 5200 series polyurethane adhesive. I was going to hammer 1 sq ft pieces to match the compound curvature of the hull, ballpeen hammer against a sand bag. Here are the pros, last for decades, does not pollute like stuffing paints, looks cool, the copper oxide (green) repels barnicles, worms, everything better than anything. Cons, copper sheet is expensive, need advanced skills in shaping the copper. Cladding Yaba in 99.9% pure copper sheet would be the ultimate protection, and you could make a living doing it for others as you travel.

  • Great progress. I have heard that you use bronze fasteners where air is not present in lieu of stainless steel. See Acorn and Arebella You Tube.r

  • It is funny to see the moral apostles drinking out of plastic bottles trying to make sure you are being ecologically woke. I am glad you are using the ecological option, but it isn't any of my business or anybody elses.

  • You might want to look at getting a paint sprayer, it will speed it up and get in places you can't with a brush

  • Hi Ben and MP, Thanks for the explanation on where and how all your wood is sourced. I was worried you would become victims of the eco warriors who see any opportunity to destroy people who are just trying to fulfil their dreams. Best of luck and happy restoring.

  • I will always remember watching the amazing couple for the very first time, I was so, so excited, something exploded insiad of me, and I did not understand at the time, but the more I have watch this amazing couple, you grow with them both, and learn to love, and respect everything that they are both involued with, not a small project hay, lol but am as excieted to see a little bit of history coming back to life, I personaly cant wait to see these guys put this very beautiful yacht back on the water where she belongs, happy future sailing to them both, and all who sail on board of this beauty yaba :)

  • it must surely have been cheaper to buy a better boat or have a new one made , when you two are finished 80% + of yaba will have been replaced all the best take it easy
