Has it touched water aside from rain yet?
>>2248739Not if you were raised by a woman.
Doug on his way to this thread to laugh at the comments: pic related

>>2248703>haven't checked in a month >STATUS: Seether is still on the hard.Anything fun happened? Some glaring fuckup (new ones)? Some boomer tier safety deviancy?
>>2248935Don't care to read the previous thread, probably more lying about getting insurance for the bloat and scamming followers out of hard earned greenbacks.
>>2248935I mean, nearly everything Doug does is a glaring fuckup and/or boomer-tier safety deviancy.
>>2248935I think hes just taking the piss at this point. Anything past this is trolling on purpose
>>2248992>taking the piss Okay boomer.
>>2248992What the fuck is happening here? Is he using a planer on the edge of a sheet of steel?
>>2249079>>2249084No, that's aluminum plate.
>>2249124Oh so it's okay he's using a woodworking tool on an unsecured piece of metal with no safety equipment because it's aluminum not steel?
>>2249130Yes... Most wood working tools and blades cut aluminum fine. Aluminum and steel are very different materials with aluminum being closer to wood in density and toughness than steel. Do you really not know this?
>>2249138So using the wrong tool in a dangerous manner is okay if it works? Makes sense, you see professionals in shops doing this all the time right? I'm sure OSHA wouldn't have any issues with this
>>2249144No one cares what you think. Go run to OSHA, the USCG or whatever legal or regulatory body has to put up with your insensate impotent whining. I'm sure they'll give as much of a fuck as I.
>>2249130I've done this before but at least I wasn't putting my hand in direct line of slip of the planer and did secure the alu piece, the results were also very poor. It's all around a pretty retarded idea.
>>2249148The reason we have OSHA is because stupid people like you aren't smart enough to do things without hurting yourself. Also your claim on aluminum density being similar to wood is complete horseshit and further proves that you don't know what you're talking about and your opinion doesn't count for anything. Stay mad faggot, some people are smart and competent enough to do things properly.
>>2249151And here's aluminum. It's crazy that you're able to get online and come to this website but you're too stupid to get in google and check if the claims you're making are actually true, says a lot about you.
>>2249153Density of:Walnut 0.64-0.69 g/cm3Aluminum 6061 2.70 g/cm3Steel Grade 316 8.00 g/cm3Difference between wood and Al: 2.03 g/cm3Difference between Steel and Al: 5.3 g/cm3He's right. Seems you're too stupid to go on google and check claims.Also, >>224914810/kek. Would kek again.
>>2249156>Aluminum is more than twice as dense as wood>Yeah but steel is so much denser!Man you niggers sure are stupid, have fun with the mangled hand and 30k hospital bill after you hurt yourself using the wrong tools because you're too stupid to do things right or too poor to buy the right tools. Please go ahead and let me know how many machine shops near you are using wood planers on aluminum parts, I'm sure there's just tons.
>>2249160Now tell me how much the copay is going to be for the hospital visit.
>>2249161I don't understand, what do you mean?
>>2249161Can you explain what you're trying to say?
>>2249161I guess not, typical douger
>>2249138Wood working tools are called that for a reason, Doug
I don't know whats going on, but i like where this is going.
Metals are harder than wood and have very different structure and physical properties, so metal working tools have a different cutting edge shape for optimal load and chip break/extraction and often slower surface speed to keep it from local overheating, and also proper shielding to stop metal shavings from getting into the motor and other electric stuff. Cutting metal with wood working tools is possible but just if you can do something doesn't mean you should because you'll do a shit job and trash the tool.Come on guys, this is /diy/, not /sci/ or /g/. If you at least don't know that then lurk for 20 years or fuck off altogether.

The research is as follows. Pocket-protected scientists built a wall of planers and crashed a aluminum car into it at 400 miles per hour, and the car was unharmed. They then built a wall out of aluminum and crashed a car made of planers moving at 400 miles an out into the wall, and the wall came out fine. They then crashed a aluminum car made of 400 miles per hour into a wall, and there were no survivors. They crashed 400 miles per hour into a aluminum traveling at planer car. Western New York was powerless for hours. They rammed a wall of metal into a 400 mile per hour made of aluminum, and the resulting explosion shifted the earth's orbit 400 million miles away from the sun, saving the earth from a meteor the size of a small Washington suburb that was hurtling towards midwestern Prussia at 400 billion miles per hour. They shot a aluminum made of routers at a car moving at 400 walls per hour, and as a result caused two wayward airplanes to lose track of their bearings, and make a fatal crash with two buildings in downtown New York. They spun 400 miles at aluminum into planers per wall. The results were inconclusive. Finally, they placed 400 aluminums per hour in front of a car made of wall traveling at miles, and the result proved without a doubt that aluminums were the hardest metal of all time, if not just the hardest metal known the man.

Looks like Doug is fucked. Anyone up for some Seeker mini golf?
>>2249772lol "Skippers insurance" just sounds hilarious
>>2249776>you'll cover the repair and cleanup fees if this gets fucked right?>lol no, we just took his money. His shit isn't covered by this. >yeah we're not going forward with mr. 0 dollars to his name with no ability to repay...COWARDS.
>>2249772Id send him a letter in jail if he murdered someone
I started watching this SV seeker for a few years nowThought it was cool that someone was building a boat but something was always "off" and this is without me knowing a thing about building boats or the likeDoug seemed a little eccentric but I thought that just came with having ideas about building a boatLeave it to 4chan to make me finally realize the slow trainwreck I've been watchingnot saying it's going to sink but not being in the water doesn't seem like a mistake
>When option b involves a barge crane.I still think he's going to get Seeker in the water but seriously....
>>2249772>>2249792>hurtleHe meant hurdles.But the word Hurtle is a perfect word for the trajectory that SV Seeker has taken.
>>2249772Doug please.>gets told to buy an insurance policy>comes back with a piece of paper with "insurance" written on it>"M-maybe they'll be fine with it"It's almost like he deliberately avoids thinking about things he was wrong about before because admitting it will hurt his pride or whatever
>>2249772First of all who is Charlie? Second, I am sure he is talking to a company about hiring them to lift the boat on a barge to float it out to sea or whatever. And I am sure that company is having a good hearty laugh about it.
>>2250031>float it out to sea or whateverJust out of the port and to the river where the port has no say as I'm reading it. Would likely end up with him finding out suddenly that it requires yet another different insurance, and having them take her all the way out to the sea where he can sink as much as he wants is way out of his budget
>>2250031>CharlieRiver tug captain that's been in the last few months of videos. He's going to be captaining Seeker to the gulf while teaching Doug the ropes.
>>2249772At least there's a realistic plan available now, Doug is gonna make it.
>>2249776Skipper's Insurance is very common and covers the Skipper's liability.
>>2249804>Thought it was cool that someone was building a boat but something was always "off" and this is without me knowing a thing about building boats or the likeYou share much in common with Doug!
>>2250059With all these insurance requirements, you'd think he would have done some sort of research. It's too bad people familiar with boats and how ports work didn't reach out to him and give him advice.

>>2250235I genuinely dont know how people get to be this largeI was a NEET after high school (no drug or alcohol use) and I just stuffed my face for fun.I ballooned from 5'10 150 to about ~240 at my heaviest.My body started to break down. My teeth started failing. I started having throat issues making it hard to swallow. I started having gastritis which gave me severe vertigo and puking spells.My lung function become horrible, my knees and back hurt all day everyday.Too many negatives to mention and while I was fat, living in the midwest I wasnt really out of place with everyone else.Even if I WANTED to become that large, I dont think I physically could.It makes me think the people who get up those huge weights have extremely resilient and strong bodies.Like they could have been olympians if they applied themselves instead of stuffing their faces.Kind of sad really, because obviously I have a frail and shit body
>>2250226there is nothing /diy/ about being a ham
>>2250411I think it's one of those things that you adapt to itI've leveled out at ~250 after being overweight for most of my pre-adult life, I can be moderately active when need be, don't suffer any pain, still have all my teethIf you ballooned really quicky I can imagine you would feel fucked up as you don't have the muscle mass built up to move that weight around among other thingsI really should slim down some

>>2250417No but you could /do a reverse image search yourself/.
>>2250180>captain Doug "we're not going to hang out in marinas" Jackson>researchYeah, nah.I have no idea what has to go through the man's head to so thoroughly miss the point of insurance they're asking him for even after the issue been shoved right in his face for this long already. It's like he honestly believes himself and his workmanship to be perfectly infallible (no matter the amount of evidence to the contrary) that the idea to consider 3rd party damage simply does not cross his mind because no accidents can possibly happen.
>>2250411>I ballooned from 5'10 150 to about ~240 at my heaviest.Are you talking about pounds or kg? I'm about 240lbs atm 1,8m and have absolutely zero ill effects. Most dudes in my circle are about that weight even the athletic ones. The only thing was when i had a bit more on i couldn't breath while tying my shoes that sucked. I'm taking the weight down right now because too much body fat is super unattractive but so is being anorexic and having matchstick arms. Maybe i have a skewed body image but these pale gamer dudes with 75kg at 1,8m to me look like somalies living in famine conditions the last 10 years. I think between 90-100kg is optimal for my size. Obviously the more muscle/less fat the better. If you're talking about 240kg yeah holy shit that's fat. I would have a VERY hard time carrying around an extra 130kg all the time.
Is there a resource for me to see all the stupid shit this fat cunt has done? Just discovered this meme and it seems pretty fucking funny.
>>2250973There are too many videos. He used to put out 2-4 hours of video per week for like 7-8 years.
>>2249138> aluminum being closer to wood in density and toughness than steel.this definitely isn't true
>>2248703Is that mermaid also made out of polystyrene? Won't that get ripped off in the waves?
>>2251087The autists have already posted data but since you commented before seeing those posts I can tell you're that special kind of stupid that will argue against facts and reason.
>>2251098There are no waves at the minigolf course.
>>2251098I think the master copies were, but they did a mold of them and made them out of fiberglass if I remember correctly. Only thing I *really* remember about it was that they used some of the best mold making and casting materials around--did a half assed job of using them, and still started off with bad masters that looked like trannies. They had the time, money and resources, to do it right and make it amazing. Yet they still just used the classic Doug mindset of "well that looks good enough" on an aspect of the boat where ITS ONLY PURPOSE IS TO LOOK GOOD.I do a lot of life casting a mold making. If I ever come into a problem in the garage, I'll usually turn to casting something to solve it. Seeing how much money he blew on something so shitty looking was just depressing.For a good while, I thought they were straight wood carvings, and was thinking "damn that sucks, but carving a sculpture of that size would be a bitch, so can't talk too much shit. Fucking lol.
>>2250784>Are you talking about pounds or kg?kek anon I don't think a 5'10 240kg person would be able to exist outside of a medically induced coma
>>22524775'10 500 lb'er? Sure they can and do exist. There's a show called My 600 lb Life on one of the Discovery channels. I don't regularly watch it but from what I have seen most of those people aren't even 5' 10. They can move on their own after help getting up but can't wash or feed themselves. They always have an enabler. It's an interesting, morbid, and gross show.
>>2250784>240lbs atm 1,8m and have absolutely zero ill effects>when i had a bit more on i couldn't breath while tying my shoestruly an insight into the American psyche Assuming you're not a bodybuilder and most of that mass is fat, then that physique is extremely unhealthy. Depending on your frame, anywhere between 70-85 kg is ideal (again not considering muscle growth).Almost nobody on earth is 240kg at 5'11. 240lb at 5'11 is already borderline morbidly obese.This is damaging your body, even if you can't feel the effects yet.
>>2252491>discussing 500lb people>mentions show with 600lb peopleyou realize those are two different weights, right??
>>2252491yeah now that you mention it I remember a few webms from that. Pretty funny desu
>>2252494>you realize those are two different weights, right??Yes. Do you realize that 600 is 100 more pounds than 500 making it worse?
Why were all you faggots talking about density of wood vs aluminum like it matters at all for cutting characteristics? Is brass harder to cut than titanium because it is more dense? LOL.
What does everyone think of the props doug made?
>>2252516They may not be as efficient as production props but they'll work fine.
>>2252516some of the big design choices he did are half way decent, these props included. The props dont scrape the cowling, most of the welding is OK, and he managed to gantry crane shit around without crushing himself.then he used bus windows for 2nd most important compartment in the boat and pond pumps for bilges
>>2249151You are just factually wrong. The reason we have stupid people is because we have OSHA. People that are too dumb for their own safety should be allowed to perish. Now we have a SOCIETY that is FULL of STUPID PEOPLE. Makes me mad man.
We have stupid people because OSHA prevents people from winning Darwin awards
>>2252516Those props would warp and then fatigue break due to the small section at the hub.
>>2252516What a fucking inconvenience that looks to be when the hub inevitably slips from his shit torque conversion or as the other anon pointed out the prop snaps due to the cute design. Wtf even is the pitch on that bitch? It looks like a cartoon prop from a zeppelin.
>>2252516I do wonder if he copied any form of proper design or if it's just an artistic rendition of a naval propeller. Also I wonder why he put a duct if he didn't bother to shape it properly: he just increased the inefficiency of the system.
>>2252630He wants to maximize his propeller cavitation obviously. Weeee woo that fucking prop shroud is only adding drag and maybe save him from catching loose lines at best.He'll lose 2 or 3 knots easy on engine only without sails.
>>2252623It's a variable pitch prop. If you cant see that then your entire opinion is shit.
>>2252638You think that shroud would cost 2 or 3 knots on a 250hp vessel? Seriously?
>>2252661It's a fucking zeppelin prop from ye olde buggs bunny cartoon
>>2252664Considering how much time I've spent researching and working with actual prop engineers before getting something custom for my vessel yes. I learned just now much I didn't know about how much a prop can affect the way a a vessel runs. Hint: a minor addition to or change in your prop can drastically affect how well the vessel runs. Fuck off Doug and get your shit in the water
>>2252682I remember when one if the blade tips on the prop of my RC boat was bent just oh so slightly (couldn't even see it really) and it made the the boat utterly refuse to plane out
>>2252685its a single clapped out diesel from a busthat shit is never getting to plane even if it went down a waterfall in a hurricane you dont have to worry about that
>>2252702They didn't claim to be an expert you nerd.
>>2252682>prop prop prop prop>replying to a post about the shroud.
>>2252710Clearly not because that faggot doesn't know what he's talking about.
>>2252516Probably the most impressive thing on the whole boat. He did just pull molds from the existing blade though
>>2252724Specifically what or shut up
>>2252714Shroud is part of the prop performance fuck off Dougger psy op
>>2252794>>2252795Check out the professor internet tough guy we got here. He graduated top of the "talking to an actual prop engineer" class at BSu.
>>2249138>Most wood working tools and blades cut aluminum fine.As a wood worker, I can state that this isn't actually true.
>>2252827Have you done it?
>>2252832Some tools will work with alu. Some tools can get blades that work with alu. Most wood working blades will get fucked up very fast working on alu. See >>2249239
>>2252847I asked if you've personally tried it. y/n?
>>2252832Not that guy but, yes, I have. As has been pointed out, some tools can manage. Most types of circular saw manage okay with a carbide-tipped blade, though they don't get anywhere near the life they would if they weren't being run so far north of "optimal". Any cutter with a carbon steel or HSS blade is going to get trashed almost immediately. Anything that sees a high amount of cutter engagement (router, shaper, jointer, planer) will do some combination of refuse to cut, throw the work, and self-destruct. You can sort-of use those with limited success on thin stock, but, again, whatever cutter or blade you're using is going to get ruined, fast.
>>2252806Offering nothing of value so I'm not even bothered. Just replying to see if you are going to keep trolling or offer anything of substance. I probably know the answer and it's parallel with how well the seeker existing as a seaward vessel in 5 years.
>>2252827>>2252832Miter saw and table saw shouldn't have an issue with aluminum
>>2250784>Maybe i have a skewed body image but these pale gamer dudes with 75kg at 1,8m to me look like somalies living in famine conditions the last 10 years. I think between 90-100kg is optimal for my size.Jesus Americans all have obesity mindset. I am 6'2 or 190 cm almost 6'3 and I am slightly overweight at 95 kg. There is no way your ideal weight is 100kg. That's the weight of a really muscular 190 dude.Your ideal weight is most likely below 75 kg but could be close to 80 if you aim to be muscular and have broad shoulders. For reference average height in Netherlands is 184 and weight 87 kg
I contacted the bossman a while ago and asked if he was thinking of launching it in a dry dock; i.e. gradual float, check for leaks.His answer was simply>NoI admire his, dare I say, blind confidence in allowing endless hoards of the entirely unskilled to have a crack at her but I can't shake the visions of this taking one bump from a wave when it's out round the tropics and yielding a news story featuring a helicopter view of loads of surprised boomers being really ungracefully multiple pull attempt dragged over the side of rescue boats, whilst the fragments of seeker drift away.
>>2252866So some wood working tools work fine on aluminum and others will have shorter life's and not work as well but still work? You guys split the finest hairs sometimes.
>>2252870tbf, his plan involved being slung from a gantry crane. You can't sink in the sling.
>>2252497but theyre not equal
>>2252876The insurance company, he's had fifteen years to try contacting, thinks otherwise.>I don't need no stinking insurance>It's not for you Doug....
>>2252872Wood workers care about their tools. We spend far to much time sharpening them and taking care of them.The OG statement was >Most wood working tools and blades cut aluminum fineIf you change "most" for "some" and remove the "fine" it would be correct. If that counts as splitting fine hairs then yes.
>>2252887what are some wood working tools that will cut wood but not cut aluminum?
>>2252897Every single carbon steel drill, saw, blade, iron etc etc.
>>2252872Please stop trying to splinter this conversation. Why do you have to go against the grain? I feel like you are putting yourself into a pigeonhole here.
>>2252913>Every single carbon steel drill, saw, blade, iron etc etc.So 5 minutes on duckduckgo I found these. It seems your incorrect. Can you explain?>>2252941>NPC_hivemind.jpg
>>2252953Well he did have a point about the iron, last time I tried doing a burn pattern in aluminum with one it turned out like shit.
>>2252956What's an iron? I put it into duckduckgo and got nothing saw like.
>>2252897You see the trick isn't just cutting the aluminum but also to have a working tool afterwards.
>>2252957Some people use them to solder things, it's hard to get the solder to wet wood or aluminum though. I hear you can make it work with aluminum if you use a liquid flux and scratch the surface under the flux first. When you iron the wood it makes it turn black, when you iron aluminum it just sucks. Is an iron a woodworking tool? Yes.
>>2252953>Can you explain?Thats not a woodworking blade anon, it clearly says aluminum and plastic.Its clear you arent well versed in cutting tools, but are you retarded too?>>2252957The iron is the piece that cuts on a hand or benchplane.
>>2249293A hearty kek t'was had here me boy....
>>2252953It's almost like you don't understand WHY it's a bad idea to use woodworking tools on aluminum, despite multiple people pointing out the main issue is that the cutting speed is too high. Once again, the CUTTERS for wood and metals aren't that different, fundamentally. But we're not talking about cutters, we're talking about tools.Bandsaw blades are a perfect example. Broadly speaking, they'll work on any reasonable material within an acceptable SFM range. In fact, I actually have blades made from he exact same reel of blade stock on both my horizontal, metal-cutting bandsaw, and my vertical 14" wood-cutting bandsaw. I've twice abused the one on the wood-cutting saw with some 1/4" aluminum plate. It was pretty well toast after maybe 14" of cut. The blade on the horizontal saw (again, made literally from the same roll) has gone through multiple square feet of low carbon steel, alloy steel, and aluminum, and it still works fine. The only reason for this difference is that the horizontal saw tops out at 200ft/min, but the bandsaw runs at over 1500ft/min on its _low_ speed, if I remember right.Also, that description on the forstner bit is some grade-A chinesium spin. It's literally just describing the uses of "carbon steel" in general.
>>2249385I'm saving these
>>2252974>"carbide circular saw blade">very clearly has zero carbide on itlmao China
>>2252965>Is an iron a woodworking tool? Yes.Is it used to cut wood because I asked specifically for things used to cut wood that can't cut aluminum.>>2252971<- ?
>>2252971>The iron is the piece that cuts on a hand or benchplane.Oh, it's the bit of metal in this wood block plane the guy in this video is using to thickness an aluminum sheet?https://youtu.be/rhb9JiVjN8A?t=32Can you explain?

Never even mind the part where it looks to be around 1mm thick, yet he picks it up and it flops around like a sheet of leather.You know why? It's not aluminum. He's making an organ pipe. Organ pipes are often made out of an alloy of lead and tin. It's so soft that it can be cut _by_ aluminum.

>>2254026Whoops, my mistake. Still though.
I quit watching awhile back after the pilot house was built. What is the current issue? Sounds like he has been parked at the port for a few months. Was able to get it trucked all the way there but didn't consider the port didn't want a novice welder ship launched without assurance it can be scrapped?
>>2254018>How stern-heavy is this thing?Engine and mechanicals aren't in the stern. They are aft midship basically under the front half of pilot house. Aft compartment is the captain's berth so light. The bow has a massive hydraulic capstan with thousand(s?) of pounds of ground tackle. That capstan along was what half a ton? maybe a ton?He should still be able to balance her with a ton or two of lead in the bow. Of course that's another couple tons in a boat that's already 15 over weight. Sail performance will be interesting.
>>2252492>truly an insight into the American psyche>>2252867>Jesus Americans all have obesity mindsetI'm from northern Germany not USA. A lot of guys here are, i hope it's the right word, on the burly side? Especially so in my circle of friends. So more like large frame, big arms and not just a giant belly. >Your ideal weight is most likely below 75 kgI was 75kg when i was younger.

Never going there again unless i'm dying of cancer or something. >Assuming most of that mass is fatYeah that's unhealthy no matter how much you weigh. If you don't have a lot of muscles naturally or through your work you gotta hit the gym. >Almost nobody on earth is 240kg at 5'11I personally don't know one but i have acquaintances hitting 160-180kg and see people double their size daily when i'm in the city. It's definitely not normal but it's not that rare either.
>>2254018>adds a jet boatThat might make Catoosa's crane operator nervous.
>>2254199It's on davits. They can detach before launch.
>>2254239Then why attach it now?
>>2254282Function test and youtube content.
>>2254294Function tests are for scared men raised by women.
>>2254282Also Doug needs a place to stay while his insurance team battles with the port.
Remember when Doug melted all that lead in his backyard furnace? I wonder if that accounts for his current mental state
>>2254611You're thinking of mercury. Doug is classic end-game lolcow.

>>2256824>1600 poundsMy HF cherry picker could lift that.
>>2256824he's already using parts of the boat as scrap
>>2252566To be fair, I feel that OSHA is just as much to protect workers from their employers as from themselves. Never forget that workers used to be treated worse than slaves once, because while a crippled slave was a loss to its owner, a crippled worker could be simply fired and replaced.
>>2256824that is not bike chain. It's at least size 50
Doug shoves his hands into loose, popping, loaded chains numerous times in the latest video
>>2256900feel the fear
>>2256889>protect workers from their employersThat's literally what OSHA is for.
>>2256889>To be fair, I feel that OSHA is just as much to protect workers from their employers as from themselves.Yes anon, nowadays some people act dumb and unnecessarily put themselves into danger at the workplace.Now think of all the shops in the country, over all these years.Lots of those dumb people were the employers putting good men into serious danger for profit or laziness. And people just cant quit, youve got a wife and kid to take care of, nigga got bills.Its a good thing that OSHA has gotten a rep for being a bit over the top and too protective.That means all of the old, blatantly wrong and dangerous horse shit that killed and maimed people has all long been addressed.Those regulations were written in the blood of your peers, just normal dudes like you trying to put in his time and go home.I overlook the more petty and dumb parts of osha, because the end justifies the mean
>>2256842MFW this was a Steve Zissou parody all along.
>>2254944Son of a bitch'll make it, you know. I can see it now. In no time he'll be telling tales about the black-hearted internet toughguys and armchair warriors. The shining white knight. Blabbering on about our injustice, hiding behind his fool's idea of morality... And all the other fools will stand around, nodding with every word he says.tl/dr Doug's son is going to make a comeback into his life just to fuck Betsy and that'll be the final defeat before Doug drowns himself in a pond.
>>2257202>Welcome back to the family Doug Jr.! What’s a slampig?
>>2256892Dougn't are too young to know what industrial roller chain is. Though I'll give them Doug doesn't seem to know what an idler is either.
>>2256889>Never forget that workers used to be treated worse than slaves once, because while a crippled slave was a loss to its owner, a crippled worker could be simply fired and replaced.No shit, they were expensive farm equipment
>>2256900Shouldn't the peaks on the chain rings be higher? No wonder it's skipping.
>>2257456You mean the teeth on the sprockets?
>>2257464Yeah. I was more remembering bicycles, but the video shot looks different than the other pic. Did he fuck up the sprockets from overloading it?
>but why is the winch overloaded?
>>2257524I think those two lines are going to the tail lights from the move or something else on the back. They are not connected to the jet boat or the winch. The winch just runs the yellow webbing that goes to pulleys on the uprights and then the boat.
>>2257478Nothing is perma fucked yet but he really should add an idler/tensioner on those chains. He's chasing his tail trying to reinforce everything but that's how Doug do. Next video he'll probably build an idler. At this point I think he's doing it on purpose to drag out 10 minutes into multiple videos and troll the dougn'ts.
It doesn't need an idler, but it does need a proper adjustable motor mount. Not just slots cut in the hull. He probably has all the parts to build one already.The chain slackening was due to the 8 ft long winch shaft flexing, who would have guessed.
>>2257706>8 ft long winch shaftIs there anything that Doug has built that couldn't be part of a /diy/ cringe thread?
>>2256842That's not part of the boat you moron. If you don't know what you're looking at shut your hole. Doug is hilarious enough without nonsense comments.>>2256900Common among dumbasses in industry too. Idlers are easy to fab so there's no excuse for chain slack and sprockets are not expensive (MSC, McMaster-Carr etc). Silly shit would not have needed to fab the chain and sprocket abortion if he'd bought a used worm gear winch like the classic commercial Ramseys on nearly every wrecker. The worm drive makes them self-braking and the smaller ones are rated at 8,000lbs. Electric and hydraulic are available and they're a breeze to work on (I have three). It's retarded to fab your own winch with chains when gears are far superior. A heavy chain for a PTO-driven winch makes sense (as used on tow trucks etc) but the rest of the winch is far better off using a commercial winch like adults who winch for a living use. Cheaper too. His bizarre lack of cluefulness reflects very poor subject study. >>2257693^This>>2257706He could easily have added blocks to support the shaft for basically pocket change. Shafting and all the rest are common machinery parts ordered everyfuckingday by shops round the globe. If he doesn't hit those exposed chains/shafts/sprockets with (lots of) chain wax he'll find out what salt water does to carbon steel.
>>2257751>That's not part of the boatIt functionally is at the moment and it would be hilarious if it topples over after Doug cuts too many speed holes in supporting structures because they "didn't need that material anyways".>commercial winchBut it Costs Money! And diy is practically free haha
>>2257751>>2257725itt nobody actually watched the video.He fixed the flexinga shaft by adding a support bearing. Still no reason for an idler.
>>2257775>nobody actually watched the video.Maybe those that watched the YT video are posting there.
>>2257775Wait, you didnt ACTUALLY think that we watch this retards videos do you?
>>2257751>you morontake it back

Nothing like sitting up in bed only to have your head impaled by some jagged mermaid-shaped bullshit.
>>2258128Death by metal mermaid tit. Could be worse.
>>2258128Why is all this paneling here if the boat hasn't been inspected yet?

>>2258423Boat no float
>>2258452Do boat mini golf?
>>2258304No sane property owner would allow the Seeker to enter the lot.
>>2258458>Entire city of Catoosa confirmed not sane by jack-off on the interwebs. City spokesman is still not, "giving a single fuck."
>>2258458Is there a reason you're so silly? It's just a large object made mostly of steel, not a tanker of radioactive ebolic dioxin. If it needs evicting that's easy and if it doesn't move then charging for storage, filing a lien and a magistrate auction solves all that and some happy scrapper torch cuts it to bits then hauls those to the shredder. That's easy work.

>>2258334>because no one willingly sleeps in rough seas.If the SVS gets in the water you can bet your ass Doug will take a nap during an ass clenching storm just to prove he's strong and brave and a real man grown like a man by a real man.
>>2258813Those support beams look disproportionately small compared to the cross member.
>>2259020You’ll be relieved to hear that it can handle the max 53’ HC container (30 tons).
If Doug boat no go ocean do that mean Doug was raised by woman?
>>2258760>unnecessarily largeI love how greedy entitled noobs ignore that businesses are built to make a profit not to serve entitled poorfags. Feel free to fab your own mobile gantry (not difficult, somewhat expensive) or other launch gear instead. Dough certainly could have but that would require study and planning ahead, and if not stupid it would require living near a fucking coastline. Doing shit different to be different is usually retarded when every task was pretty well perfected in the early 1900s...
>>2259451>blah blah blah boomer talk blah blah blah get off my lawn blah blah
>>2258590this stupid jew has already gotten all this money and free help
You can tell doug was not raised by a woman, by the fact he worked in a cubicle for 40 years
>>2259618Blah blah greed blah profit blah blah poorfag blah entitled. Lots of projection mixed with dehumanization and class envy. That's kike talk. Maybe a kike boomer.
remember when he tried to start a vw turbo diesel without glowplugs
>>2259684>thinks everyone should know the specific quirks of an obscure 20+ year old german engine.You reaching deep there dougn't.
>>2259941>glowplugs>A quirk of a specific diesel engineWhat in the goddamn
>>2259961>Having to use glowplugs on a 70 degree day.I agree. What the goddamn VW engineers.
>>2259966The diesel engine in my sailboat always requires the glow plugs to get it started.
>>2259941... do you not know how diesel engines work?
dumb questions from an exceptionally filthily casual seeker follower: - Has he built the masts yet, and does he still plan to use that junk rig? - What is the yellow horizontal rail around the aft section of the hull?
>>2260253the diesel engine in my sailboat has no glowplugs
>>2260266The hull fell off
>>2259020On is mostly compressive force, on is a bending force.
>>2260347And if the boom swings, with the crossmember thrust sideways? Just looks funny to me.
>>2260269Yeah well third is a fucking school bus motor. It has glowplugs and that isn't some rare proprietary shit. It's rather common.>>2260266 Mast is made it's junk. It's going to fall off anyways if it sees actual use.
>>2260253My Yanmar has no glowplugs and fires right up. If it can do it why can't your boat's engine?
its been what? 1 month? 2 months? This pile of shit is never going to see the open ocean and i am tired of faggets in this thread thinking it will ever happen. Give it up you boomer niggers, doug litterally cant put his boat in the ocean because it's a pile of shit that might not neccessarily sink immediately but certainly wont run because everything he built into it poorly is going to break. the best example is the bunks, literal fucking jagged steel ridges right above your body and the boat gets hit by a wave and you lift up and you are bleeding out unconsciously while doug makes a new youtube video above deck about his shit volunteer crew being shit. the boat is never going into the ocean, he will continue to milk money from the boomer cattle who are living vicariously through his retarded dreams until the day they die.
>>2261042That's fine, you didn't give him money did you?
>>2261108No but I donated over 90 hours labor.
>>2261137Did you really? lmao
>>2261142Yes. I spent the time to break my fucking back for that cock sucking fagget Doug just for him to make some snide narcissistic boomer remark about my work. The difference is I'm a fucking professional and didn't stick around longer. He banks on low self esteem retards to work for him free and once he thinks you are hooked he starts getting his rocks off by berating you. Most of those fuck heads are there because they have nothing else. Meanwhile I fucked off because fuck him and fuck his empty promises. You are all being played. It's a big fucking sham. Selling the house is a smoke and mirror. He didn't spend all of his money on the boat. He is hoarding a large portion and will be gone the first chance he has to disappear. He really thinks he will end up some Tiger King level famous from documentaries or some dumb boomer shit. Fuck everyone sincerely otherwise encouraging this fuck face farce.
>>2261157Are you able to sit back and admit that you were a>boomer cattle who are living vicariously through his retarded dreams?
>>2261157>He banks on low self esteem retardsI guess this includes the Port of Catoosa staff and senior management.
>>2261157LMAO: "I only donated 90 hours of labor then I was outta there so I'm not like those other retards"
>>2261169They made no sacrifice and got useful publicity. Spergtards can't understand parking Seether on some cost-free space that's out of the way required no effort on their part. It's simply not in the way and could likely stay there for decades.Do you retards have no concept of how much shit is casually left around the world because it's not in the way?
>>2261199How is publicity useful for the port? I woudl think that if anything they woudl rather be quietly left alone to do their work. It's not like they have competition.
>>2261204>t. boomer cattle
>>2261202The publicity is hugely helpful in the rent-free storage/workshop, and free dumping markets which are highly competitive.
>>2261202Doug's had dozens of puff pieces done on him by the local news stations over the years. Locally he's a minor folk hero. The community is more than behind him which is why various local officials tripped over themselves at the launch party for photo ops. The hate in this thread is imponent and not shared by his local community. That's why it's so fun to come here and watch the dougn't rage. It's delightfully nihilistic.
>>2261244>a folk heroThat’s gonna turn sour sooner or later unless progress is made on the boat front.
>>2261290No it won't because they aren't following Seeker like a strung out hate junky looking for a fix. They hear about him a few times a year and go, "oh yeah, I remember him. That's so cool he's building a boat. I hope when I retire I can do something like that." and go on with their life.
>>2261244Funny the only one I remember seeing was when they covered him for being an asshole that faked a traumatic brain injury.
at this point the guy building tallyho will have that bought rebuilt and sailing before anything happens with this heap and that guy works a full time job half the year sailing
>>2261379>works a full time jobThat it, the key to success, they say.
>>2261379When did Leo pick up a fulltime job? He's here on a b-2 visa. He can't have a job.
>>2261617he works as crew on rich peoples boats
>>2261620Fucking illegal immigrants. Didn't we throw enough tea into the harbor to keep them out?
>>2261625Obviously not or Doug wouldn't be scamming everyone with this boat.
