Rebuilding interior of Lagoon 450 - Cracked bulkhead repair series - Part 13 (Episode 118)

In this episode we finally get to assemble the cabins after rebuilding the primary bulkheads of our Lagoon 450 catamaran. The cabins could not be taken apart without being destroyed in some areas, so it was a difficult task getting it to go back together. But we are over the moon with the result!

This series will show never before seen footage of how we straightened and strengthened a 45ft production catamaran, in order to be able to complete a circumnavigation. Located in Linton bay, in Panama, we meet our fair share of challenges trying to rebuild this boat from the bulkheads up...

    You might try taking some sawdust from your cabin pieces, mixing with some glue , filling and smothing your wayward cut in your cabin. Just a thought. Enjoy your videos and lets go sailing!! From land locked Oklahoma,God bless.

    Well done guys! Great to see Parlay coming back together again. I take my hat off to you two. I am a Carpenter working on Superyachts in the Med, and when I saw you guys ripping those cabins apart to expose the bulkheads I was cringing at the thought of having to put them back together. You both obviously have skills working with your hands! Cabins are looking great. These videos will be so useful to anyone else doing the same/similar work on their Lagoon.

    Colin. Loving the videos. Literally re-inspiring me to get back sailing. I wanted to let you know that NZ and AUS are being totally totalitarian with this scamdemic that is going on globally.Not good for liberty. Here in the UK and France as well as other countries massive protests against lockdown, digital passes that allow you or not to go to certain places. Just a heads up. Stay cool.

    Hey mate, sent you guys a message on Facebook. Would love to fly in and be able to come join and help you guys. Curious if you will be looking for new crew in the near future. I have a marine technology degree from CFCC in Wilmington NC and been diving since 2014 with probably 800 dives or more since I used to work as a marine field engineer in hydrographic surveying, marine construction projects dredging and biological surveys in south Florida and even sailing from south Florida to Bahamas on several occasions on a lagoon 380 towing our custom aluminum work boat behind us too the berry islands. After this I worked for some of the top dredging companies as a field engineer. Since 2018 I left the traditional job lifestyle and have been traveling around the world mostly in Asia and SE Asia. I a currently in Vietnam and looking for the next lifestyle adventure to set out on as I miss being on the open water. I’m very familiar with life at sea on a sailboat, biological research vessel(college) and maintaining boats. I am not an engineer in the means of boat engines or repairing boats professionally as I did many things and was not specialized in marine engines even though we of course did take mechanics and electrical course amd have done my fair share of repairs in my experiences inland and in open water. Splicing lines, navigation, diving, marine equipment, cleaning fish, conch etc, basic sailing experience, taking the helm, etc. Anyways I’ve watched several of your videos and seen how Covid has effected you and was thinking maybe you all may need some help from someone who can be remote long term and has some financials saved up to pay for my personal needs. Hoping all Is still well with you all and to chat soon, cheers!

    Very nice. I bought a boat that the previous owner had torn apart. I had to rebuild almost half of the entire interior from scratch. (Endeavor 38). It was a lot of work and took 18 months full time. But she is better than new because I built out the interior the way I wanted it. Not the way the factory wanted it. Anyway, looking like your gonna be cruising again very soon. Will be following along as the adventure continues. :)

    Can't wait to see if there is a difference in how it handles/sails in the water. If the cabins on each side were flared that much that is a lot of drag on a boat that size.

    Hi Colin, Great that you are offering to assist other owners. I think you should charge them an hourly consulting rate and quite professionally sit down with each client each week in a meeting or zoom to guide their repair process. You have worked your butt of to get the experience and learnt the hard way at times on how to fix your boat firstly all the time editing to pay your bills on SE-one etc. I hope the other owners don't take advantage of your efforts and expect to consult for free. Much respect as not sure I would be man enough to do such a repair to my catamaran.

    Hey guys! I know that with your ingenuity, moral fortitude, positive attitude, and hard work; you guys will definitely circumnavigate the whole world very soon. But I like to suggest that you guys not only circumnavigate the typical route that is usually taken by others but suggest that you guys truly travel around the whole world by visiting areas that other people usually neglect. I suggest you guys after sailing to New Zealand; sail to Hawaii, Guam, then onto Japan, and S. Korea. I especially highly suggest you guys visit a South Korean island called Jejudo. It’s a hidden jem of an island similar in size to Maui. Try googling it and you will be surprised by its very unique beauty which cannot be seen anywhere else. Visit several ports in Japan, from there sail to Tsushima island and onto Busan korea which is just 50 km beyond it. from Busan; Jejudo is on the way to another beautiful Islands of Okinawa. From there you can sail onto Taiwan, Macao, Hong Kong, beautiful Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India and so on. I think visiting the seldom visited Far East will make it a truly thorough circumnavigation. All the others who claim to have circumnavigated technically might have done it but really did not traveled around the whole world. Hope you guys will be the first to really travel around the whole world. Only then. Can you say that you traveled the whole world. Good luck guys!

    Colin, Here's a filler/concealer you can use to camouflage those accidental cuts... it's a putty/wax combo in various shades to match the base wood. It's used to fill in bad scratches in old wood, but should work for your application. Maybe use hot melt glue down in the crack/cuts and finish the top 1/16th to 1/8" with the concealer. See:

    Hi Colin. I think there is a very good argument that this is a design fault, assuming the plywood used is as per the design specification. First of all the plywood they have used has 7 veneers but four of them are thin and three are thick. A "proper" marine grade plywood (structural) should have 7 evenly spaced veneers. The reason for this is that when plywood is compressed the strength is reduced by up to 40% depending on the orientation of the grain to the load. If the grain and load are aligned then you get full strength, if they are 45 degrees you get about 60% of the strength and at 90 degrees about 85%. Now that if is for "proper" plywood with evenly thickness veneers. Now the plywood will be installed (most likely) with the grain of the outside veneer vertical. This means that the internal (thick) veneers are at 90 degrees to the compression load (assuming the compression load is all vertical which I doubt). So the strength of the plywood is reduced accordingly, and given that they have not used plywood with evenly spaced veneers then the strength could be as low as 50% of what would be expected from the plywood they "should" have used.
