GUTTING our SALVAGE SAILBOAT | Expedition Evans 10

We all thought this day might come - many of us figured it would but hoped it wouldn't. There's more damage than initially assessed...We make the official call that the salon needs to come out, completely. Luckily we've had plenty of practice with Beneteau interior design and get it out pretty quick.
Thanks for watching-
With love
The Evans'

*Our Boat*
2008 Beneteau 49
3 cabin 2 head
4JH4-TE
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 nlcameras.info/wiki/g4CYfaqs1X-Y02k/video for how we came to own her!

    FYI: good, marine quality stainless fasteners are, by nature, are not very responsive to magnets. A good test for good vs. bad fasteners (besides rust) on a boat: if they stick to magnets, toss them overboard. Here's a basic explanation: www.greenwoodmagnetics.com/resource/what-is-the-difference-between-304-and-316-stainless-steel/

    Hi guys, a very impressive project you've bitten off! But so far it looks like you are doing great. Anybody who can jump in there and grind away on gelcoat and fiberglass can handle just about everything. I have two boats, a Beneteau 473 in Grenada, and an Ericson 32-3 in Texas. Both have grid systems, but I seeing some real differences with your Beneteau that I wasn't t aware of. Things I will be definitely looking at when I-hopefully- go down to hang out on it again next month. I have a question regarding your repair plan. Do you intend to fiberglass/epoxy bonds from the floor grid to the hull? My Ericson is built that way. There isn't any 'bonder' between the floor grid/pan and the hull. It doesn't have pans at all. There were covers out over the bond areas to give it a more finished appearance. It makes for really strong hull structure. I can send pictures if your interested in more details. Good luck on your project, I will enjoy watching your progress. Steve Byron, SV Jen Chelsea

      Your are correct about our plans as well, they never were connected to the hull, just look pretty. We are planning to fully glass down the grid. Tabs, pans and bonder are being removed and replaced with copious amounts of fiberglass and epoxy!

    Wow have you 2 taken on a project and a half. I am fearful how far you are going to end up going back along that interior to fix it though. Before I say why I came to put finger to keyboard-with the emphasis on finger!!- a bit of encouraging utubeing to watch- nlcameras.infovideos. Same as you lived simply by converting a 22 seat Toyoya Coaster bus to live in, travelled around in Aust then bought an old yacht and got it up to scratch and at 22 she and hubbie set off and 3 years later are now somewhere around Thailand. Other is nlcameras.info/plus/bU2ulPD3rJ4OZCNH7-gjjQ.html another Aust couple who are on a 50 yr old Aust built "Clansman" all of 30 ft and journeying around the coastline only starting 3 years ago out of Perth and currently refitting in Hobart, Tas I think. But why I write- A yacht magazine here in Aus called "Cruising Helmsman" in their edition of Sept last year did a 6 page articl on "love your anchor chain" by Jonathon Neeves. I can't see yours and the first thing he said you should be doing while up on the hard is getting it out of the locker and laying it out and checking it and a whole lot of other things that were very informative. If you contact the editor Phil Ross at philross@yaffa.com.au he might be able to send you a copy. If not send me a message and I might be able to scan it in and email it to you. VERY worth reading.

    Nice to see a bunch of goog comments. Only thing I have to add is to say you do know there are right angle drills that make getting into tight spaces a lot easier. For those times the regular drill won't fit. Don't know if any are cordless. There's also flex thingy's(the problem with getting old is forgetting names of things but can describe it.

    FYI - The reason some cabinets are so hard to disassemble is that the entire cabinet structure was prebuilt & lowered into the hull, THEN the cabintop was added on during construction....so great job, keep plugging away. Also most shop vacs can take a shop vac bag, which helps filters the fine gelcoat dust. Great videos thanks

    Hi there, iv been working with fiberglass boats for 20 odd years, modifying, repairing, iv come across all manner of shoddy workmanship direct from the manufacturer, id suggest not to heed any advice from manufacturers. I won't get into why. My advice would be, on areas delaminated around structural reinforcement ie the keel ends, simply drill several small holes (3 millimeter drill bit) varying depth about 50 to 75 millimeters apart, using a syringe with thinned (heated slow cure) epoxy inject the epoxy in firmly. This will Often form a stronger laminate then grinding it out to replace with essentially a inferior repair.

    There are loads of comments on how much stronger the boat will be if you bolster the grid, but my partner was saying has the thought that the grid designed to be sacrificial been considered? If it didn’t seperate in the accident could it have ripped the keel off and/or breached the hull in doing so? Maybe they are called ‘bendy boats’ for a reason....Food for thought ...

    OMG does that look familiar. I have a Freedom 30 but Basically the same crazy disassembly puzzle. Once upon a time I owned a Beneteau 235 and while it was a wonderful little boat, there were definitely some interesting design and build choices made. Having said that, Beneteau has a reasonable record re quality AFAIK. Practical Sailor typically gives the company a decent grade for build quality. PS mentions the "furniture is built on the factory floor and installed in the boat as a module(s). This probably accounts for the maddening disassembly complexity. As another poster noted, I would be surprised if someone from Beneteau was not following this series and, if not, they should. Presumably what Beneteau and previous repair persons missed, you guys are going to fix so you will wind up with a fantastic boat. You are young and healthy... damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead!

    Howdy kids, love your video’s, so sad there is so much work to do to bring her back to proper sailing condition. But on the bright side... when you are done you both will have a deep understanding of your boats construction and her systems. Just a quick hint... when you are trying to remove a screw and the bit/screwdriver does not want to grip the screw... use a small dab of valve grinding compound on the end of the screwdriver. It will definitely help!

    are you going to be able to do something. like see if Elevator bolts can be found made of stainless steel.. or use stainless steel flange nuts thru a stainless steel plate with a hex punched in it that fits the flange nut hex but prevents the flange from pulling thru.. allowing you to bond the larger stainless plate to the inside of the hull.. using all thread into the nut allowing you to use a chunk of laminated lumber across the top of the frames to pull the bottom up into the new sealant between the frames and the inside of the hull.. you will probably need some crazy slow setting version with a 12 hour pot time to allow you to slowly tighten the many nuts on the all thread a 1/4 turn at a time evenly to pull the hull up to the frames or the frame up to the hull. hint.. pickup a big magnet with a hook on it.. place it in the middle of the cut outs.. now take a steel washer and move it along the outside of the hull.. you can zero in exactly where the magnet is.. so you can draw the grid pattern on your bottom paint or do it in low tack masking tape.. so you could cut some matching curve sections to also push against the outside of the hull with when it comes time to bond the framework to the hull.. please when you use the all thread and nuts to suck it up.. please paint or mark the nuts so you know exactly how much of a turn you are doing on each. to hold the exterior curved braces to the hull.. you might be able to create cross beams over the deck... allowing you to drop wide straps from flat bed trucks under the hull to pull the hull inward slightly while bonding.. i don't want you to crush the top of the hull inward with these straps creating an completely bowed hull shape.. you may need in a few areas.. vertical posts to push down on the grid from the underside of these overdeck beams.. could you wedge the cross beam thru windows. so you have verticals pushing down on the frame and straps from the ends of these cross beams cinching up the hull.. that would probably be the best thing.. heck that might work better than gluing pads to the inside of the hull.. do winches on each end.. so you don't pull to one side.. use scaffolding leveling legs to allow you to push down on the grid when bonding agents are put in place.. what to do about the plates and nuts you have epoxied in place.. if you have used the proper stainless.. glob some epoxy over them and forget it when done.. you don't want to screw with trying to get them off.. you will have to get some wooden carpenters clamps.. to clamp on either side of the frame allowing you to wedge them down slightly when gluing them in place for the best bond to the inside of the hull.. if you can't get it to bond properly as you will only have ONE Chance.. buy a house with a big back yard.. dig a slot and set the boat in.. as a back yard sail boat.. have friends over for the green ocean sailing adventure.. i worked on a big wooden power boat for 22 years.. what you have to do scares the heck out of me as a mechanic .. i knew my friends boat from the bottom of the keel to the anchor light. from bow to transom.. i had touched almost ever square inch of the outside of the hull. the entire bilge from stem to stern except under the main engines and generators. but between them.. i was in there i was even in the fuel tank compartment while the 3 tanks that held a total of 5,000 gallons of diesel were removed. best of luck.. i will be watching.. perhaps commenting..

    When you remove the keel it is important to make a mould of the bottom ,an area about 2 ft for and aft of the keel and close out to the water line .This mould then allows you to cut away all the damaged hull around the keel fixing and also may be keel mount .the new skin from the mould is then much easier to replace the area and reattach to the grid . This method is done in the Whitsundays were a lot of yachts collide with coal homies.

    If the hull is not properly shaped when the Grid is re-secured the hull will not be 'Fair' and the interior will be distorted. I don't need to explain how this is bad. The Grid provides the rigidity to keep the keel from moving under sailing loads. Looking at the bonding agent they used it was not well fitted to begin with or when 'repaired' and 1/2" gaps are not fillable with adhesive.

    I can see that the hull is a little bit deformed because of the weight of the keel. Before starting laminating you should lift the keel from below approximately 1cm to close the gaps.

    ok I made some comments that are still pertinent a few issues back. One thing about the grid bonding Im seeing in comments. They will have built in the idea that the bond isnt 100%. This would be decided on a large safety factor that allows for say a 70% successful bond, and even at that they have large margins left. Benes are not known to be strong boats, theyre light boats. They dont hang out in the ocean in a storm, their strategy is to run for cover and they have the boat speed to do it. Before you drop the keel, you will know of places on the boat that a far from joining the skin, I want you to measure and reference those gaps before and after the keel drops so you can tell if things are moving around without the conformity of the keel and the weight. Likewise the keel to hull bond. Im hoping for improvement. Another thing is keeping on top of the dust is a good idea, see if you can obtain tools that allow vacuum connection to keep dust down.

    Might be an idea to add some stainless steel bracing/strips/plates to the keel area for load spreading. Try a scaffolding company to buy some aluminium stairs or just make some from lumber and formply. Get a vacuum pump so you can do vacuum lay-ups and a degassing pot also for resins/paints free from micro bubbles.

    I see why this boat was totaled, wow! Can it ever really be safe?

      I ask that same question but I have zero experience with something like this. My instincts says that this is beyond a DIY job. How does one know if they are using the right glass and epoxy without any experience with this. Their are so many options and one wrong move could be catastrophic. It seems like they do alright so far but rebuilding will be the real test.

    Do you know if thermal imagery was done on the hull ? If not there might be damage to the hull / keel area that you can not see.

    All I have to say to you both is, good luck with the on going repairs once you find the true fault. Be patient and embrace the situations as they occur with positive minds. When you find the root cause please get a survey before you start work to ensure correct adhesion angle.

    I am so impressed with what you have taken on and your smiling approach to it all. A couple of comments that may get me in trouble. 1. Hair dressers have salons. Sailors have saloons. I know salons have crept into the advertising literature, etc. But go back and research sailing lingo on this one. No, don't. You have more important things to do. 2. Bedrooms are cabins or staterooms. 3. I recommend a small battery powered screwdriver. It will help you get those hard to reach screws you're using the stubby to get. And 4. Although we enjoy seeing your smiling faces, you lungs and nasal cavities will thank you if you wear your respirators. There's too much nasty dust in your boat now and into the foreseeable future and it gets airborne quite easily. I wish you nothing but continued success and look forward to following you on this journey.

    I don't know how far along you guys are on your project but I found something you might be interested in regarding how and what you use to repair your boat. You might want to visit this site. One of the members is actually building wooden boats, connecting everything with a two part epoxy. I found it amazing and might be worth a look for you guys especially as you try to bond the fiberglass back together. . Here's the site. CREW@OFFCENTERHARBOR.COM, Mastering Epoxy with Russell Brown

    I work as a mechanic on wind turbines, many of them are only maintained once or twice a year, lots of the fasteners get stuck and we use many of the same materials as sailboats. That said impacts are king for removing and installing fasteners I saw you using them great work. Now I also saw you using the very worst tool, the stubby screwdriver. In confined spaces you need to use a ratchet style bit driver, my favorite is made by Wera the xyclops 1/4 drive set with the bits. That said I imagine that most things in you boat are metric so if you got a 1/4” drive metric set it is small and would serve you guys really well. www.amazon.com/Wera-Zyklop-Metric-Ratchet-41-Pieces/dp/B001O9M4BE That is the set I use at work and I love it, you may want something cheaper but the fact that it can go from a ratchet to a driver with just a switch is amazing. If you want to go cheap cheap orielies has a bit driver ratchet that would work far better than your stubby screw driver. Having it as a ratchet allows you to put more pressure on the head of the fasteners and still have a long lever to torque on it without taking even as much space as the stubby driver. I recommend looking for one that has a bit holder in the handle as well as the head so you can still use it as a screw driver once it is loose if you go with that option. You are doing now while you are young what by wife and I want to do when we get older, much love and prayers!

    Hello you two, I think it's great what kind of project you have accepted and how you let all of us in the world be part of it. We all watch very interested because we have all thought about rebuilding a destroyed boat in order to make our dreams of sailing the world affordable. Your way of telling seems very natural and I think it's great how you treat each other. I only have one question: could you think about using the subtitle function. Unfortunately for me (German) it is often difficult to understand something, precisely because you are so natural, the content is often lost in speed, sometimes under the mask or because of the background noise. I would love to understand more. Best regards your Hilmar

      It's (hopefully) going to always stay at least a little back dated. That'll allow us some breathing room so we aren't slaves to the computer. But right now each video is closing the gap and it not too long will be pretty close to real time since we're publishing more than we're filming right now! eek!

    I am shocked at the poor quality of the bonding of the grid to the hull. The bond line is WAY to Thick. That narrow thick ribbon of adhesive was not properly squeezed out when the grid was applied to the hull. Where was this boat built? France or US? Good luck on this. I agree with one of the comments below. Take everything out and store it so you can get to the entire project without tripping over stuff. Good Luck!

      @Expedition Evans I am an aerospace engineer working in composites development. That kind of adhesive bond line is very problematic. Poor bonding technique. What you are doing to fix the problem will address this issue. Good luck!

    So, my current boat does not have such a grid, but I used to have a Beneteau with the same system. How about this as a question for those suggesting that a stronger hull would have been better. By the looks of the separation she took a significant hit on the rock and might a stronger bottom caused the keel to break away rather than flexing as it did? Automobile manufacturers adopted this years ago with crumple zones that absorb the impact rather than sending it through to critical structure and the occupants. I can imagine the bottom of the boat tearing away if the forces had been great enough to do the damage it did.

    I hope they don’t have any problems out of the wiring harness since part of it was under salt water for who knows how long and if any of the jagged parts of the damage has worn on the wiring harness as well. This has got to be their dream boat because once it is finished it still is a boat with a salvaged title, which is extremely hard to get financing on if they try to sell it and the buyer doesn’t have cash. They have the best positive attitude I have ever seen tackling a project of this size. Best of luck.

      @JoanOfArgghh I agree they will never recoup their money or labor but they might keep it for twenty years if they get it fixed correctly and have the best years of their life enjoying sailing all over the world. I most certainly would have a professional from the boat company look at it and get their professional opinion. If it doesn’t work out, I feel real sorry for them because you can tell they have poured their heart and soul into trying to fix it. Previously with other people bidding on it, one would think it can be repaired, unless other bidders were hoping to scrap it and part it out.

      They are young enough to walk away. Dreams die every day and the ones who can return from the death of a dream are the ones who will endure far into the future. They'll be surprised at the strength and energy they'll discover in their 40s. But I'd much rather see them plant a seed that will endure. This boat will never repay them.
