The guy involved actually had a decent amount of sailing experience. You can see him drawing on that many many times in the video too.

I personally don't like the video not for the reasons most people state, but because it tends to re-enforce an idea that doing things on the cheap requires living in squalor like conditions. They spend all this time working on the boat, even buy a new engine, and do nothing to make it the least bit comfortable or liveable.

A sailboat can be comfortable, liveable, beautiful and safely maintained without having to be rich.
