Project Atticus On your live stream you mentioned full keel, not sure if you seen my reply to that. A couple of good things A it's a true blue water vessel and B you can heave to in big wave n bad weather rigging Dr channel explains it on his YouTube channel.

Just found and going through your videos. Found through the sewing projects as I plan my own projects out. Looks like a nice boat despite the work. I bought my boat knowing it was in need of work and still working on it. Right now it's sitting at a marina by the Chesapeake just south of Annapolis with a long way to go still.

Have fun out there! :-)

Hi Daniel! Thanks for your note! Good luck with the repairs! It will totally be worth it in the end :) At least that's what we're trying to believe!

I will never buy a plastic boat. Wood all the way for me. Fiberglass is just yucky to me. Wood boats have been around since the beginning of time and there's a beauty that comes with a wood boat that you simply don't find with a fiberglass boat. Anyway, I probably won't watch the rest of your videos but I wish you all the best with your first sailing vessel.

Hey guys. I have just come across your channel as i am in the early stages also of finding a yacht to purchase. I'm not sure yet whether or not I will buy "ready to go" or as you guys have done one that needs some TLC. i have only just watched your 3rd episode so am really excited I have so many eps to go. Looks like not too much sleep for me in the next couple of days. My plan is to eventually start coastal hops of the east coast of Australia whilst learning to sail and also learning about the vessel I eventually buy. love your work guys. Thank you in advance because I know you documenting your experiences on your refit will teach me and help me immensely. Best regards, Shane

+wallabyshane Hi Shane! Thanks for your note! Great to hear of your sailing plans. Jordan and I have both debated countless hours about whether or not we made the right decision to buy a project boat with such little knowledge. Truth be told, we're glad we jumped into it and got started, and we've learned hundreds of new skills and developed confidence throughout our 2 year refit, but on bad days, we really wish we could have started sailing earlier. So, in retrospect, I think buying a project boat was a good idea, but we probably could have found a boat that was closer to sailing and still learned a lot. Best of luck and keep us in the loop of your sailing plans!

A shite load of work ahead of you, but the journey itself is the best part. As he said...

Very polite you guys but you should never buy a boat without having a survey or seeing the boat yourselves out of the water. Blisters on the hull is not such a big problem but through hull fittings and the rudder are. If you really are going off into heavier seas then the boat can either save you or kill you. In the end you are very, very alone and you have only one good friend and that's your floating bubble. The sea cares for nobody.

Thanks for the video.  I am grateful for you giving me an idea of how much a boat like that costs.

Way to pick a boat and go for it.  Just remember that that if anything's gonna happen it's gonna happen out there! There will always be problems, some things more expensive than others.  Don't listen to everything everyone says or your mind will explode.  Get salty. Follow your heart.  She is still looking better than the More Hands On Deck boat though we are about a month away from sailing again finally! Nice camera work with the flip we may have to use that... hahaha keep it up! And keep in mind that all of the most expensive fixes in the world still won't buy you peace of mind, only faith in yourself, your vision and whatever else is out there will do that.  Just send it.

It's going well chad, but slow. On the hard in key west and have another few weeks before we're back in the water and then another month or so of work and we'll be off.

By 72 you mean hull # 72? Where is she and how is it going? Would love to hear from another new Seawind owner.

Wow. I almost bought this exact boat! How's it going? I'm now looking at 72 up here now.
