#BoatLife #Sailboat #Refit
We decided to start this week off with a little break from boat work to explore a slice of our Tongan neighborhood. Because all work and no play make Jason and Nikki a dull couple. Along the journey, we meet a local boy who decides to not only be our guide but our film director too.
Then, it's back to the boat restoration and getting our home livable again. The scrubbing continues as does the next big project: our diesel tanks. We knew our port side fuel tank was pitting and was in need of repair/replacement but we thought our starboard tank was ok. Turns out, removing our sailboat's 15-year-old aluminum diesel fuel tanks turn into a challenge with a surprise.
We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.

  • Hey guys, thank you so much for the kind comments and the recommendations for our Trashed Diesel Tanks. We’ll begin working on the tanks this week, keep your 🤞🏻 and we’ll see how it goes. We spoke with the welder last year when we removed the first tank. He didn't have the proper fittings and wasn't in love with the 'cutting the bottom half off and replacing it idea'. He said he would do it but he recommended buying new tanks as the best solution. Enter COVID...and now he's stuck in New Zealand not able to get back to Tonga. As far as I know he was the only aluminum welder on the island. So it's back to a temporary repair for us😢 Kudos to all the people that answered the trivia at the end. We have LOADS of correct answers (we’ll make it more difficult next time) so we’ll choose one at random end of day tomorrow and let you know the winner in a pinned comment. Ok, back to boat work! 💘 Jason and Nikki

    • @hugo brutus that’s what I suggested. Maybe not the brand specifically. I just said Spray on bed liner. My trucks are currently Line-X bed lined and my previous trucks had the same. Never had any problems with denying, chipping or fading. I guarantee, if I were to seal the tail gate and take my tonneau cover of, the truck bed would turn into a swimming pool when it rains because that stuff seals off everything.

    • Better late than not at all? You be the judge.... Your stated objective is to 'fix/repair' the diesel tanks so they last until you can get new ones made. Your time frame is 'a year or two'. Starting there, it makes sense to clean up the inside and outside of the tanks, either weld or JB Weld the holes up, and figure out how to cut down corrosion. Cleaning and repair are relatively straightforward. My suggestion for cutting down on corrosion is to apply some marine anti-fouling paint over primer on the bottom and up the sides for a short distance - say about six to eight inches, in case the bilge fills with water. If you can locate any spots where sea water can come in contact other than the bilge, then use the anti-fouling paint on that surface also. Be sure you don't overdo it, because the paint may insulate the tank well enough to cause condensation inside it,. Make sure you have good venting to keep that from happening.... Getting new tanks manufactured is another interesting project. You two are VERY handy with computers and videos. Pictures are worth thousands of words. I'd suggest that you take a bunch of photos of the tanks and use a program on your computers that will let you draw and write on a picture to document the tank's measurements, sizes of holes, sizes and and placement of the fittings, such as the fuel gauge and pump, vent hoses, the supply tubing, etc. Be extremely detailed, and if you've noticed something that could be improved, such as moving a fitting or reducing the size of a portion of the tank so it's easier to get it into its space or take it out of that space, you can note that on the picture. When you're ready to have the tanks made, you can email the photos to various suppliers and obtain quite accurate quotes. You could even do it just before you set sail to where the tanks are being made.

You can also use WD-40 silicon wich is also great for all you lube jobs on board. We used it on the outremer 51 , whenwe crossed the atlantic, great for the mast rail, poulies and whatever else....

  • On aircraft, they seal the inside of "wet wing" fuel tanks with a PRC sealant. It could be poured into your tanks, swished around, then the excess drained out. It stands up to jet fuel (kerosene), but you'd have to verify compatibility with diesel.

  • As a fiberglass Tech That be a bad mistake! You can get a Gas tank liner! I would patch it with BJW and Id Only Fibergass the bottom and 4 to 8 inc up the side walls But the Linger is like a plastic You poor it in your tank then rote the tank let it cover the inside take about 5 mins dry and the hole time ya have to keep rotating the tank to it dry It creat a liner inside the tank! Make sure you sand the tank where you fiberglass! You could cover the tank in Fiberglass But I bet the liner would work way better! But Like I said Id fiberglass just the bottom and about 8 inc up the side! Hope that help! I also make you get a better resin then Boat Resin You really need a resin that will some what flexable! Like a 927 Resin or Flex resin But Boat resin would work.

  • I love your channel! Been binge watching and living vicariously through you, so thank you! Regarding your fuel tank dilema, I believe a sacrificial anode could help your fuel tank from corrosion. A "Navalloy" aluminum anode--a combination of aluminum, zinc and indium--is known to help protect aluminum in salt water from corrosion.

  • You could use Por-15 or Redkote fuel tank sealer. I have used redkote for an automotive application. You just need to degrease, etch with citric acid, then add in redkote and roll the tank around. The Redkote is very viscous. I recommend adding in more than you need then drain the excess out.

  • Hello Wynns. We're new to your channel - just about 2 weeks in. Just seeing the fuel tank dilemma, and the "how far up to fiberglass" question. Jason said, "any other ideas?" ---- Rhinohide ! Don't know whether you've already finished the project, and don't know whether you can get the spray on epoxy material that is Rhinohide, but --- that seems like a great way to "waterproof" the exterior of the fuel tanks. I'm tempted to suggest spray on vehicle undercarriage coating - a rattle can spray on mix of rubber and petroleum wax, but that's somewhat soft, and would probably eventually wear away because of the rocking and rubbing. Hope that's helpful ! You two are saints for sharing such good, helpful, and thorough information. Oh - and extra kudos for being a sailing couple that doesn't "pimp out" the woman sailor with "thirst-trap" visuals. We'll keep watching - we're thinking your adventure may be our retirement plan / semi-retirement plan after the daughter finishes college (5 years out). All the best and safe travels.

  • Three options for tanks. Please read the last. Definitely get to the inside of the tank and clean the area to be repaired. Put the Jb weld on from both sides so it forms a rivet type effect. Glass to the top edge and then build the top sperate if you have enough room for an overlap. Should be a couple of inches of overlap which should keep the water out and still allow for removal. Looks like for the second tank you could use the tank for a mold to build a negative and then build the new tank inside the mold. Glass inside the as thick as you like. Make sure to seal the inside with proper paint/epoxy. Should go without saying that the top will be built separately and glassed together after. Crap design. Third option and really the best. Take the tanks to a fabricator. Cut about an inch and a half to two inches off the bottom. Reuse the bottom if possible and build a bit of a frame under the tanks to keep them up and out of the water. Might be worth painting them with a good epoxy to prevent future corrosion as well. Keep smiling, live your energy.

  • Guys, you ae going to screw yourself trying to repair that aluminum fuel tank. That will cause you pain out at sea eventually! Your best bet and investment is to have an exact fuel tank made and then completely coat the outside with a very good 2 part epoxy with white pigments in it (not paint). And really, at this time you should replace the other because it will eventually need it. and again, the last thing you want is pitting holes with fuel leaking out while you are out making a very long passage out at sea. Money well worth spent for "piece of mind!" Also, make sure you do NOT grown any electrial wires or ground wires to the tank itself, which adds to the electrolysis process.

  • You are right that the foam tape caused the corrosion. It kept the aluminum wet but with no oxygen circulation to form a protective oxide. When you put the tank back in try using hard neoprene rubber blocks that you glue to the fiberglass but just let the tank rest on the neoprene blocks - don't glue it. The neoprene absorbs no moisture and is hard so that moisture doesn't get held against the metal. Hold the tank in place with wood at the top of the tank. The higher you can get the tank out of the bilge water the better.

  • Since you're only looking for a temporary fix until you can get new plastic ones from either NZ or AUS, why bother wrapping the whole tank in fiberglass at all? Perhaps just doing the bottom, and just up the sides a bit, in fiberglass or some other rubber sealant will keep it until you get the new tanks.

  • Aviation fuel tank sealant sealer. Commercial aircraft seal the inside of the wings and use the wing for a fuel cell. you can use it to seal the outside of your fuel tank and it comes as a two part kit, with different drying times so use the B2 kit it gives you two hours of work life and dries to a rubbery consistency. Tape off the area you want to seal and spread it on. found at most aviation supply. I'm a certified airplane mechanic and used it to repair all kinds of stuff. If you get some screen material you can cover larger holes by using the screen as a base over the hole.

  • It’s not the salt water rotting your tank. It’s electric corrosion. You need to ground your tank to a sacrificial block (zinc) to stop the dissimilar metal corrosion. Any non aluminium metal fitting will induce a corrosive current and this corrodes the most vulnerable metal which in this case is aluminium. Zinc is more vulnerable to this type of corrosion so it will corrode instead of the tank.

  • I actually don't have a tip on how to seal the tanks. My tip is more for when you put the tank back in. When putting it back in, set the tank down where it is taller than it is wide, then spin it on end, then you should be able to then drop it back into the room without having to squeeze it as you did getting it out.

You both draw closer an pull thru. So when u share your lives with the world u never realize how u may save someone... thanks for being my life ring. The home she shines you both inspire me so..... Sorry so long it . I kinda don't hold my feelings in much!! Life is far too short !! Donna❤ & LB
