Re: samson c lord

Research proper treatment of the hull material, it is accesible and nothing lasts forever.
Someone here should know something about cement boats. I don't so I will be waiting with baited breath for replies.

Re: samson c lord

Try forums ferrocement , It appears that a good two part barrier coat then antifouling is the way to go on the outside. keeping oil and other hydrocarbons away from the cement on the inside appears to be a very good idea. Perhaps a good bilge paint over the entire inside.

Re: samson c lord

I cannot recall many threads on Sailnet about ferro cement. There are a few on Cruisers & Sailing Forum here:Cruisers & Sailing Forums

Around 1970, when I lived in Vancouver, I used to ride my bicycle to John Samson's shop in Richmond to see what was in build.

Re: samson c lord

Here's a reference for you.

The World of Ferroboats

If you are starting with a bare hull, I strongly recommend you not take it any further. Sell it or otherwise get rid of it and buy something in a better material.

The C-Lord is an enormous boat and will cost you well into 6 figures to finish it, even if you do all the work yourself. It will also take years of your life. I've watched a number of big ferro boats being built including a C-Lord - you can expect to spend 10 years or more completing it - an old rule of thumb is 800 hours per ton of displacement and a C-Lord will weigh at least 30 tons. That totals 24000 hours or 12 years of full time work days. At the end of that, no matter what you have spent or how nicely you build it, you will have a boat that is extremely difficult to sell and that is only worth a fraction of what you have spent.

As an example, currently near me there is a Samson C-Breeze for sale. It also is a huge boat but is about 3/4 the size of the C-Lord. It was very well built, far better than most ferro boats I've seen. It needs a lot of work but is complete, afloat and could be lived on while being restored. It also must meet some kind of commercial standards because it was used commercially and is a listed Class C Tall Ship.

They are asking less than $20K and it has been on the market for years.

Sorry to be so negative but ferro boats have smashed more dreams, marriages and lives that almost anything I can think of other than drugs.
