    I ran the serial number and the manufacturer actually created this vessel with the intention of it being launched into LoJo’s pond

    It’s called a TEMPSC (Totally Enclosed Motor Propelled Safety Craft). This one is from the Safe Brittania semi-submersible rig (a rig I personally spent some time on in the UK North Sea many years ago) which was generally used for floating accommodation. Judging by the serial number the manufacturer is Schat-Harding, a Norwegian company who specialises in this type of craft. As it was used on a rig it will have been very well maintained as there are strict SOLAS standards that apply. The unit has a lot of features that you won’t know about such as external water spray to allow it to motor through sea surface fires plus it would be pressurised in use to prevent gas ingress. Also, if I recall correctly they are also designed to be self-righting so can’t capsize (I guess that would require all the seals to be intact and the doors closed!). The exhaust fumes inside are a bit worrying as you either have the hull exhaust plugged (this would likely be under the water line) or a manifold leak, either way it should be easy enough to figure out. If you were to contact Schat-Harding with the serial number there’s a good chance that they would still have all the documentation for the vessel, worth a try.

    Sweet boat, A tip for fiberglass repair especially the one on the bottom. Use a small 1-2 inch medium coarse disc sander and remove material around the hole down 3-4 layers, the next step is to go 3/4 of an inch larger and sand to one layer above the last . do this until you reach the last layer at the surface. Cut each patch to fit each layer. Its kind of like a step drill in reverse as you look at it. Then mix your resin and install the fiberglass one layer at a time make sure to remove the air bubbles if you see any. Also types of glass maybe use some thicker matt for the first two layers the cloth for the remainder. I think you could use a plastic flexible cutting board to hold the repair in place using a 2x4 holding slight pressure behind the plastic cutting board. Once it sets up the plastic should peal off. Sand and paint repair or gel coat.

    I worked offshore for several years and I can tell you those safety boats have been known to have made some people so sea-sick they actually died from aneurisms. You get on one of those in an an off-shore emergency it was truly a last resort. I myself use to hide whenever they had rig drills where they actually dropped them in the water with people on board. Nope, nope, not doing it. Their cool looking though. Good luck with the restoration.

    Hey Ayo, congrats on getting that awesome boat, dude! I can imagine some haters saying you're nuts or whatever, but what the hell, hater's always gonna hate, and most of that nonsense is just pure jealousy. Personally I think if you're crazy, then it's a cool kind of crazy, and I wouldn't mind being crazy myself with a bad ass lifeboat of my own!
    I never saw any lifeboats that weren't attached to either a cruiseship or an oil right, and that was mainly in movies or documentaries, so I had no idea those boats could be put on a trailer, let alone owned by a private person. I have always been attracted to the idea of owning a boat, but the tought of getting caught in a storm in the middle of nowhere and having my boat or yacht capsize always scared the hell out of me, so I pretty much just gave up thinking about owning any boats. Then I ran into your video of when you were going to check out the boat and buy it, and I saw the footage of the lifeboat getting jettisoned from the oil rig, plunging into the sea, then bouncing right back to the surface, and I realized this is the type of boat I've always wanted and I didn't even know it, so congrats again on buying your boat, and thank you for making these videos, man! Thanks to your videos, I know now which direction I wanna go about owning a boat. I also realize now that if and when I buy my own lifeboat, I won't be as afraid of getting caught in a storm as I've always been since lifeboats are designed to be pretty much uncapsizable. Of course, weather reports and storm warnings must always be taken heed of, though, even in a lifeboat. I also understand I have a ton of research ahead of me, before I even try to find a boat for myself, but it's something cool to look forward to.
    Anyways, watching your video of the first time you put the boat in the water and how the engine makes so much damn noise and creates a health hazzard inside the boat by the fumes it makes, reminded me of another video about a lifeboat, which I saw shortly after your video about when you first checked out the boat with the nice old cowboy guy. It's a video about two european guys who got a lifeboat and turned it into a house boat, making it all electric and solar in the process. Here's the link to that video, I hope you like it and find it useful to your own experience:
    m.krclip.com/video/JjpCFP0jJIY/비디오.html
    Please keep us posted about your progress with your awesome lifeboat.
    Goood luck, dude, and Happy Hollidays!!

    Have you ever considered that the hole you guys plugged in the bottom of the boat would be the exhaust? with that plugged maybe it pressurised the motor box and the only way out was through tiny cracks into the interior of the boat. That hole looked a little too perfect to be just a random hole into the inside......

  • Abdiel Carvajal
    Abdiel Carvajal 2 개월 전

    I’m not an expert filling holes in boats, but back in the time when I was surfing, I was able to fix quite a lot of holes in my surf board.
    We used Fiberglas and covered with resin.
    I would sand the area around the hole first, the apply an even amount of resin around the hole, covered with a thick layer of fiberglass and even more resin, place some paper wax and a piece of wood, from the bottom to keep the fiberglass in place and pressure using a jack and a rod.
    The paper wax its to avoid the wood sticking to the resin.

    Being built as a safety and life saving device, it should be built reliably and tough as nails. Carbon Monoxide alarm is legit and the alarm is another level of safety. Easy fix for you to ensure the gas doesn't get into the boat again. That engine is reliable AF unlike a domestic outboard can be. This thing was built to sit in place for years unused - although I do believe that they have to be tested periodically to ensure they are ready to go in an emergency. Great score man, and great vid - glad it all went well. Cheers.

    Backing is basically a "joke" on those types of vessels. I've always practiced backing only when needed and using the revers/forward when turning and they will basically turn on a dime. I spot a few technical solutions as well as hull design which are similar to the Norwegian Viksund fishing vessels. Anyways it's cool to see it afloat. You'll get the hang of the controls in a breeze. 👍👍

      I'm a details guy. Not terribly creative, or at least not *efficiently* creative. I can spend an hour scrutinizing and rewriting a single paragraph. I'd be a great copyeditor, but not a copywriter.
      Regardless, you give good advice. Hard work often pays off. I'm in my 30s though. No kids, doesn't look like there will be any. I quit college to start my own business and it failed during COVID. Being the type to work 18-hour days given the chance, seeing that effort go nowhere but downhill is humbling at the very least.
      Just a reminder though: sometimes, things don't work out. The key is to not put all of your eggs in one basket. I did. Big mistake.

    • Tombomb1816

      Respectfully if you were motivated to be the best videographer you possibly could and worked hard you would be good enough to make the cut. If it was a real dream and you truly wanted it you would do it. Some people want things but not bad enough to make it happen.

  • Lazurkri
    Lazurkri 2 개월 전

    I've seen people turn the smaller versions of these into like houseboats and it works pretty well for them; the sea keeping on them is a little bit of a pain in the ass because these really aren't meant to be used long term in the water, they're meant for short term survival stuff but because they're so reinforced and overbuilt because, you never know if the sea is going to be calm rough or on fire if it's a oil rig escape craft, you can do a LOT with them, and because 64 men is a LOT of weight, if you only expect to have at most a dozen people inside, that gives you a LOT of reserve buoyancy to use for gear and other amenitie.
    That top rail for example is PERFECT for strapping solar panels to, either on top or angled down to the deck to fit more panels too; I've seen pictures of one of these style life boats that someone stuck batteries and solar panels in with a backup diesel motor in and they were able to sail at a decent 10-15 knots for a few hours without even getting close to emptying the batteries.

    You could replace the hand crank steering wheel with a DC motor drive with a Left /Right switch to turn the rudder so you don't have to do all of that cranking . Adding an indicating gauge to show rudder angle position would keep you straight on direction .

      A 24 volt electric valve actuator might work best for converting the steering system instead for a few reasons .
      Drives electrically in both directions , has a handwheel you can still use for manual operation if desired (that declutches when electrically operated) . already has analog circuitry for indication for showing valve (rudder) position .

    Definitely fix that exhaust leak and put a starter/kill switch at the pilot station.
    I would put in a few more portholes and turn it into a houseboat. Put teak deck topside on either side of the center walkway that has sections that lift with the hatches. I’d like to have one, but what I’d really love to have is a 26’ jet drive, shallow draft, double hull landing craft with a sleeper cabin. I would use it for fun and flood rescue. Only problem is I’d need to get a truck to pull it and it’s really just a dream/wish, because a disabled vet without any benefits, and not able to work, ain’t buying anything sooner or later. 😥

    To be honest this is one of the only channels I watch from start to finish that are videos longer than 5 minutes because you never know what's going to happen next....
    Keep em coming bro!
    Can't wait on the itty-bitty update fam.

    A nice rough sanding on the fiberglass will help adhesives for your patch work

    Seen these on cruiseships as lifeboats. Modern types can even provide entrance for people with physical disabilities.

    I thought it was the same life boat in southern harbor. Cool to know it actually is 😂 if you ever need help with working on it or any help with any projects let me know. I live on county road 222. When I seen it I was like wait a minute is that the same one? Or did someone else buy one too😂

    You need to use a brush and coat the surface first then put your cloth on and stipple it with more resin and you should have removed paint to access the raw fiberglass so as to achieve adhesion and then add multiple layers

    I am a little concerned about the cooling of the engine. Most inboard engines are cooled by seawater which is - after used for engine cooling - lead into the exhaust to cool down the exhaust gases before the exhaust is led through the hull. I didn't see any water coming out of the exhaust ! Probably the seawater valve is closed, the water pump impeller is broken or ... you sealed the hole for the cooling water ;) . Also, the anodes ( hull, motor, perhaps gear, shaft ...) should be checked! Because the boat was build for Saltwater they are made from zinc, but for permanent use in Sweetwater they should be replaced by aluminum or magnesium.

    That hole in the bottom may have been the exhaust port or water intake. You may want to check before next time out.

      @Derek Madden Its a simple plug hole. (screwed fitting)

      @Chris clark (Mercury207)They aren't self bailing. The drain plug has to be removed or replaced manually from inside the boat. it's kept on a lanyard by the drain hole.

      It might also have been a moon pool for mice but the likelihood is similar.

      I agree, very likely that hole is a subsurface exhaust or intake for sea water engine cooling.

      @J did you even read the original comment you’re replying to? There are more possibilities for the hole rather than simply a plug hole. Regardless, I didn’t speculate one way or the other. I just corrected your original comment.
      If you’ve ever been around big boats you would know there are many reasons why a hole could be found on the hull of a boat.

    I think the hole you plugged might have been the fume outlet?

    TheFvckinCaptain 2 개월 전 +11

    The hole you filled is the drain valve/hole. There’s supposed to be a plug. It looks like a little dome cage with a ball in it. It’s a weird looking plug not like a normal rubber plug

    I would check if the hole you patched was actually the exhaust port for the motor. It looked almost perfectly round.

    Did he ever mention what he paid for it?? I can see this being used for overnight stays or even a lakeside bar & grill. Cutting away most of the side walls and putting windows in and you got something that no one will forget
