  • Bag fish lol

  • Why are you needing so many air tanks, along with all of the compressors ??

  • What’s a bag fish

  • Notice you got metal rollers for your angker chain , Last for ever but play hell on your galvanizing , nothing that a hose down wont fix . Looking good .

  • Spent 33 years on that stuff and had enough. Good luck.

  • The tube on the propane tank is a 10% fill valve. You fill the tank until it comes out that valve. That way there is room for expansion with the heat and cold.

  • You really need to color paint your piping

    • Or maybe you really need to learn to identify piping without the training wheels? : )

  • Curious: did you buy those 100 lbs LPG tanks decommissioned and thoroughly cleaned out? Never saw them being fully and properly vented before starting to weld or monkey around with the valve.

  • what are you going to do about electrolisis?? you seam to have alot of stuff going in that engine room.. k.i.s.s keep it simple silly

    • It seems like you have a broadspectrum worry. Is there something specific you can ask about? : )

  • Every video is amazing ! Awesome work ! The end result will be like nothing else ! The most famous boat in the world and it isn't in the water yet ! Just a word of caution, steer clear of icebergs !

  • coming this channel for years so glad to see its still so pure. love it

  • Hey Dough, how do you plant to get the condensate out of those air receivers?

    • @SV Seeker have you taste that air before? I'm not trying to be a b*#*h about it but there's standards for breathable air, just saying

    • @kalyopi No. Going to breath it straight from the bottle. : )

    • Are you going to treat the breathable air in any way?

    • See it just now

    • Showed it in the video. : )

  • Doug did you put a water separator on the air trunking

  • Wow. Good work guys. Will be great to see her on the water. Just watch those air tanks. They will rust from the inside.

    • He put the inlet/outlet on the bottom so should be good.

  • I continue to be knocked out by the complexity that is now within Seeker - so many systems, amazing Doug. I hope things are well labeled for future reference. This has been a terrific journey since I joined the videos back when you started the pilot house.

  • OPD Overfill prevention device. Cause propane certified operators are not so bright? IDK?

  • O my gosh that package from Amazon was a good one. I was wondering why you had such a goofy look on your face, when you opened that package, believe me I'd of had it too. Unreal eh! unreal. I thought I'd see it all but that one takes the cake. doesn't it. wow. hahahaha

  • 4:30 Obliterated

  • Next job for Doug is to build a aircraft carrier lol.

  • I’d have much preferred seeing AN stainless braided line on those air tanks and lines, but I’m always paranoid of unprotected line cracking and bursting.

  • That’s not an ice cream truck that’s a free hugs van!

  • T bolt Marine hose clamps will take the beating of rough seas. Regular screw clamps have little surface area contact and can let go during high stress. (amazon)

  • So when will somebody spend about a month or two making labels? lol

  • "There are more Harbor Freight bits to break." Dear lord I've never related to something in a youtube video this much.

  • Our old grain trucks from the 70's used standard hardware store fittings and pipe for the hydraulic system and they have been in service for 40 plus years. I wouldn't do it but they did

  • Space Vessel Seeker

  • Boy are lucky, a smiling box with a box inside for a rubber hose. I had an order from Amazon, notified & tracked. It flew from California to Honolulu. Then went to the island of Hawai'i (Big Island). The back to Honolulu & back to California. Amazon e-mail'd me to check zip code, as the package was 'NOT DELIVABLE' ME: The zip code was correct. Amazon then sent it out again. Total time, 3-weeks! Amazon = 🤡

  • I have to say. Still can't wait to see her in the water. But I'm going to miss the videos of her being built.

  • thank you

  • I missed a few videos..what happened to his wife?

    • I heard she ran off with the gardener.

  • 3:30 It's to keep from overfilling the bottle. Like you said, the fluid starts coming out there when it gets to that level. I don't know why but this is something that was enacted not terribly long ago. Used to be able to get a FULL tank of gas, now you only get up to or maybe a little past that vent tube.

    • It's to reduce the risk of tank rupture, by always allow an "air cushion" inside the tank, as well as to allow the (liquified) gas to vaporize before entering the delivery system. If a tank is filled with liquid propane, the liquid cannot expand with temperature changes, and it can blow open the tank. Same reason expansion tanks are mandated on hot water systems these days. "Expanding" liquids, whether water or LPG, can crack open essentially any vessel, if that pressure is not allowed to compress something "cushy" (most often a gas bubble).

    • I guess they are trying to keep them from ever venting, but it sure is a waste of space 99% of the time.

  • Hello Doug! I have two aluminum SCUBA diving tanks, one is 72 CF and the other is 80. I would like to donate them! Are you interested? Also, are you going to use the two propane/storage tanks for surface air diving supply? If so, you might want to checks the tanks for anticorrosion coating inside, might need to rinse/purge them!

    • Absolutely! I was planning on asking for them at some point. There must be hundreds of them in sheds and attics. The problem is shipping them. Email me at svseeker@ymail.com and maybe we can find a ride for them.

  • "Just move the stupid thing!" That should be the SV Seeker motto! :)

  • tkzz for cracking jokes sr.,.made me laugh lil harder today.,.lol,.,.,peace

  • Let’s be honest here Dougs a latter day Tom Sawyer,the fence painting episode. “Come help me build my boat!” I’ll give you the apple cores from the guy that gave me apples if I let him paint the engine room. (If you’ve never read the books get yourself a copy) It’s nice to see solid pipe work where possible

    • @SV Seeker People volunteer because they want to be a part of the dream. I can’t say I blame them. Today I made a hay manger for a friends horse out of old rebar. As you know the author Mark Twain was a latter day comedian.

    • It's a skill that everyone should learn. If nobody wants to work with you, you really need to take some time and consider why that is.

  • 10% valve!

  • I know that wasn’t the topic of this video but I think it might be helpful when maneuvering to have a rudder position indicator, as you most certainly won’t have the time to spin the wheel fully to one side every time

    • The best one I have seen was on a ship build in the late 1800's : ) senewss.info/slow/gMOzldygZ7C3asg/video

    • I bet that could be done entirely mechanical with some gears and a mechanical indicator

  • Not a great idea to put the oil free compressor under the floor without any ventilation. For reference you can consider the entire electrical load of the motor as an electric under floor heater. Great in the Arctic maybe but a bitch in the tropics. If you must put it there please be sure that the breathing air filters are somewhere cool or the diver will get lots of condensate in the supply hose.

    • I think assumptions are the problem.

  • I didn't think propane tanks were safe or rated for compressed air?

    • Glad we could correct that misconception. : )

  • usine a gaz pierrot

  • 3:30 Thats part of the ulage valve to vent the the tank and show you when liquid appears when full

    • We use to fill them to the top. I think it's more like some bureaucrats idea of a safety feature to keep them from ever venting. .

  • @8:58 Acorn nuts? What is this, a yacht?! On a more serious note, is there a way for search and rescue to use those ARC wrist bands to locate a target bobbing in the water other than having the GPS location when they take an unexpected swim?

    • @SV Seeker Yeah, I didn't think they would since it is a low powered signal and water tends to block those at any useful frequency for that power mode. Still way better than being a spec floating in a 500 square nm area.

    • It's more of a fetish. I have a real thing for Acorn nuts. : ) And no. There is no directional signal.

  • My birthday is 21 aug lol

  • 14:01 Must've been a Russian immigrant who packed the box. Matryoshka dolls

  • 4:26 LOL! Warnings be damned!

  • On the California. For the love of god replace the crappy universal connection.

    • @SV Seeker i have 4 of them and bought one for my dad. Love the lack of noise. Hate would be too kind of a description for the satans spawn that is the universal quick connect they come with.

    • You make such a persuasive argument I may actually consider it. :-)

  • Hey Doug, What series of Licences will you need to operate SV Seeker? All those electronics, radio, sonar etc etc plus length/displacement etc of SV Seeker would attract a swag of permits licences etc,,,, perhaps worthy of a video episode? We love how its all coming together,

    • None. This is still the land of the free. At least for a little while longer.

  • Hey Doug @ 4:27 you removed and obliterated that label, the boat will sink now... Just thought I'd let you know so you can put it back on.

  • Doug You gotta do what I to Amazon returned defective I watch charger case. About size of tuna can . Well I used lot of Amazon packages envelope in boxes with packing inside box inside box, probably ten different boxes and of course last had Amazon smile box on outside. Attached return label they provided then put outside next day UPS delivered package and they picked it up.

  • Great episode Doug. It’s getting so close now.

  • I’m just here to read the comments from Doug about the silly comments people make👍🇺🇸

  • If you’re planning on using cal aire for dive air , you’d better order another one . Mine lasted 18 months .

  • 👍😎

  • what is a bag fish?

  • Who's writing the owner's manual for this vessel? Man it's got some complicated systems.

    • Uhhhh.... You just saw chapter 348

  • That table saw belongs in The Table Saw Hall of Fame.

    • Sears Craftsman, $20 at a yard sale. Just added a 3HP motor.

  • nice bro, i found your channel since 5 years ago .

  • I happen to notice there wasn’t a valve at the bottom of the air tank.

    • That's because there isn't one. : )

  • I am glad you cleared up that translation Doug.Whaaat?

  • and do you have all the Drawings for the systems

    • Yeah, they are under the keel.

  • @SV Seeker casually telling all the Nancys to shut up in the comments... i love it !

  • what size wire you running in your aluminum gun ..and it dont look like tig

  • Is the aluminum spool gun AC or DC?

  • Awesome job!! Question, any chance of adding a tank like that to connect to your dive compressor?... that would make it so you can fill your tanks faster.. thats how Fire department cascade systems are set.. just a thought

    • I understand that.. Was just asking about a single tank..when I saw you added those 2 propane cylinders for air storage

    • Cascades are heavy and bulky and certainly not worth the accommodations required on a boat.

  • How much has it cost so far? What is the budget? Thanks.

    • Everything I have earned, and everything I will earn.

  • "I was just looking at gravity" LOL I gotta remember that for future use..

  • Bagfish? I thought they were called Coney Island Whitefish

  • Ps .. A sailboat would have worked🤔

  • Hey mates, my dad was adament telling me, son if it's going to stay afloat you better build it yourself... I give it six weeks. Put out a video when you haul it off the bottom! Or one when you make it to where ever

  • im from quebec canada i think i will try to make it to tulsa on launch day

  • Stop filling up my cabin/hidey hole up with stuff lol, I Wish

  • new second favorite channel. thanks. :) look up "project binky"

    • Love it. I learned CAD from Project Binky.

  • Nice job

  • Do you plan on drawing in bilge air to the California compressor for breathing air?

    • No, I was going to connect it to the back water tank vent.

  • 3:30. It's the fill tube. When the liquid comes out the top, stop filling.

  • THe propane valve with the small tube is a fill indicator. WHen filling the tank the indicator valve should be opened to show the change from vapor to a liquid. that is the full indicator for that tank. Thanks

  • What pressure are those forward tanks going to be running at?

    • @SV Seeker , hehe. I must have awoken on wrong side this AM as I totally missed that :-)

    • @wellcraft19 : ) It's humor.

    • @SV Seeker that must be a typo... LPG is running at about 200 psi when warmed up. 20,000 would blow that tank - and everything around - far and wide. Not even scuba tanks go that high.

    • 20000 psi

  • Amazon sent a medical boot in a box that was 3'x2'x1' It had room for 6 of them

  • You really have to go some to snap a half inch bit ... nicely done sir :D

  • What about color coding the pipes? :-)

    • @cmonkey525 Ha! That explains it. You were on OSHA boats. : )

    • @Bryan Tatone 👏 bravo on your well though out response with big words. You seem smart.. . . . . There was no battle, if you're actually read everything. Just a few people pointing out very valid and realistic concerns, that are aligned with real word practices in the Maritime world on thousands of ships. My comments are not based of assumptions, rather actually having witnessed situations going very wrong because of the very to points I originally made.

    • @cmonkey525 precautionary advice based on others' experience and training is often conflated with unjust fear. Similarly, hypotheses regarding the potential negative outcomes of certain choices are deemed to be baseless assumptions. But this cantankerous demeanor does drive engagement in the content and more views. Folks including myself watch and read this comment section regularly to follow the battle.

    • @cmonkey525 After reading some of the other comments, I noticed a bit of a trend where he brags about not being that safe and I'm uneasy with that. If he ever has a major incident, the lawyer who take's him to court will have a rich vein of comments and his intent, rationalized by the fact that he lives in a free county, at least for now. I think if we'd sailed together during our respective careers, we'd have gotten along well. Be safe.

    • @musoangelo you are right. When I made that original comment I was more irritated with some other stuff they had done on the boat that took some saftey shortcuts for the sake of time and money, and probably just not knowing better. The piping thing really isn't that big of an issue. But potentially running divers off that compressor and air system is just plain irresponsible . Yes I was a bit of a dick and could have been nicer.

  • only 4 months is it going to be ready? oooooo

  • This is amazing! Killer work on the boat. I wish I could make the launch. :/

  • 3 main problems with using propain tanks for compressed air. 1. Everyone tells you not to weld pressure vessels. 2. Most people use the factory "foot" meaning moisture gets trapped at the bottom and rusts out the tank 3. They stink! Had mine running for a couple years and the air still stinks of propane. The adative they put in it seeps into the metal. It slowly comes out the metal over time and stinks up the air. Definitely something to be avoided if your using it for line fed diving

    • @josh s Yeah, same here for the smaller 20 pound ones. You can exchange them or get them filled.

    • @SV Seeker interesting. in the UK we "rent" them. you pay a fee when you get the first one and whenever you want it refiled they just swap it out. works quite well really as the company pays for all the safety inspections etc ect. you can get used ones for almost free

    • @josh s Sure: Lowe's, Home Depot, Atwoods, Tractor Supply, Walmart, ....

    • @SV Seeker honestly its a really strong smell. its rancid! wow i didnt know you could buy them new. thought they only came from the supply companies

    • #1 They are wrong. Obviously. #2 Easy to avoid if you ignore "everybody" #3 These are new, and air tools don't care about the smell. Doubt I would either.

  • ONE THING YOU DO NEED IS 2 BILGE PUMPS NOT CONNECTED TO THE BOAT THAT CAN PUMP 1200GPH THEY ARE CHEAP.. PORTABLE...

    • @reno flames OF COURSE. : ) How about a couple of 5 gallon buckets? 1200 / 4 gallons per bucket = 300 buckets 3600 seconds / 300 buckets = 12 seconds per bucket.

    • @SV Seeker THE KEY PAD IN THE PLANE ONLY TYPES CAPS ....

    • WHY ARE WE YELLING?

  • Purge valve on the wrong side

    • Dam hard to open it on the inside of the tank. : )

  • falling in category of "closing the gate AFTER the cows got out" 35 yr experienced carpenter, forced into disability by a career ending injury, here. IPE, every hole and cut of IPE MUST be sealed with a quick dab of paraffin wax, or brand name wax based "end sealer". Found that if poured a lil paraffin in cup and put screws in the cup and shook up, it accomplished 2 goals, 1: it lubricated the screws, cutting down on the SS twist snap (have built a number of Ipe' decks, extremely frustrating when break a screw). 2: the wax on the screw seals the hole. if you do not seal those holes and end grain, the Ipe will dry out, checking, cracking and feathering. It a NECESSITY

    • @JFK64 Kennedy 5 - 6 Years? Remind me put that shit at the top of my list. : )

    • @SV Seeker if not sealed, it WILL happen, starting, 5-6 yrs at most yrs

    • 459 years of carpentry experience here. ...ah no splits in any of the boards. : )

  • 10,000 PAGE OPERATIONS BOOK COMING UP FOR PRE LAUNCH I GUARANTEE. YOU WILL HAVE TO TRAIN A 1ST OFFICER FOR THE BOAT AND A CREW CHIEF... SCHOOL IS COMING. YOU NEED A BBQ GRILL TOP SIDE...

    • Yeah BBQ.... and the rest can be ignored.

  • I can't hardly wait to see the wiring and plumbing diagram from this boat after their finished. Looks Great 👍🇺🇲

    • You just watched the documentation.

  • Of all the channel im watching on youtube, i must say nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than to see a SV Seeker video pop up :) Thanks for always makeing my day with learning new stuff

  • I have no idea what a bag fish it lol

  • How many more episodes it's been already 2 years I'm looking at this 😂😂it never end but I do love it

  • Working construction we burn through those air compressors regularly. sorry to tell you this but they don't last very long... You need "rolair brand"... Amazing boat you're building!! Amazing!!!!

    • P. S. I didn't realize it was for dive air

    • @SV Seeker you know what? Your exactly right!!!!! Good sailing!!!?

    • @stairman A) Try and find your sense of humor. B) Tell someone that has a hand made 60 ton boat in their front yard that they need to spend more money on something is not helpful advice. C) You can't use oil compressors for dive air, so your not listening and your making assumptions. D) You do give a fuck, in fact you give way too much a fuck, because you got bent out of shape over trivia. Perhaps you need a vacation.

    • @SV Seeker was only sharing advice from my 43 years as a custom staircase builder that's gone through countless air compressors. . My experience is oilless compressors are short lived throwaway . They are not meant for any extended use. I did see one catch fire ,luckily it was outside. You can use this advice or disregard. Your choice. I obviously don't give a flying f*#€

    • @stairman LOL! But will I die?

  • Utube removed the show on how to keep your safe from lighting I do remember this he had 2 bronze Anchors that went of the boat It was a 40ft cat Just a thought Denny from Minnesota

  • Where's Betsy?

    • Home

    • Also the dogs are missing?! One of them passed away, but the other one?

  • I know. Hardly states it, that you know every rivet, weld, nuts bolt , pipe run. Having watched for years I’m excited to see the end in sight.

  • Doug is true rocknroller these days

  • If your wondering why Amazon does that with the boxes it's so they can fit enough packages in the truck that they won't shift around yet not have so much weight that they get a ticket for an overloaded truck. I used to work there, yes the packaging is wasteful but in the end it saves money because every last bit of space in the truck is used.

    • @Jesse Trimble So strange.

    • @Jon M yep, well that's not how the company wants it...... but yes it's crazy

    • Absolutely nonsensical. You can load a trailer at half height if that's the case. As long as the boxes are packed well they won't shift.

  • I know you don't care but as a certified welder welding pressure vessels can be dangerous especially thin propane tanks. I know Yadi Yadi yada people are too scared just do it carry on.

    • HA! I'll hold you hand. : )

  • PIONEERS OF POWER By Mark Williamson written , 2004-10 -Clint Eastwood as Vic Kerby -James Garner as Jim Rockford -Burt Reynolds as Himself sort of -Danica Patrick as Danica Newman -Tommy Lee Jones as Willie White -Cameo appearances by Carroll Shelby, Tom Selleck, Lou Gossett, Stuart Margolin as Angel, Hal Needham, And a 32 Deuce named Elvis, I mean Bad Billy also Lil’Sister a 1905 Wright Flyer with Tug as mankind’s best friend and this drawing of maybe the world’s first workable gas engine. So sit back have a fun read and dream you win the big race. Now let’s get to reading then building P.O.P Town. Story line It’s a story and a dream of a movie for Gearheads. Pioneers of Power, is mostly set in modern times. We follow our five drivers racing in four different countries, in two months. - Shelby Cobra’s, Australia - Formula One, ( Thinking where would be good ) - Stock Cars, Ohio - Early Jaguars and such, Isle of Man At the end, all drivers agree to use the winnings to found a small closed Community, for Gearheads near the airport at Lake Havasu, Az. A place where Gas powered everything can live on forever, and our Pioneers of Power can too. It’s a town for racers, builders, collectors, restorers, craftsmen of all types. This will be a town that has new and modern working garages, new shops at its center to supply those garages. Like the hot forge of old with tongs, hammers and anvil nearby ready to make and fix all sorts of things. The town is turning out new and restored beauties of all types. The town will be encircled by a private four mile race track with a ¼ mile drag strip, all open 24/7/365 to those that live and work there. A Golf course is nearby. With some small homes with huge garages for use by the Gearhead residents. A 1950’s style Car Hop burger place, a Mom and Pop diner, a classic Drive-In movie theater showing classic movies from dusk to dawn. It will be a place where gas powered everything can live on forever and prowl the roads and track of POP Town 24/7 without a cop in sight ever. This town will be a place where dreamers and achievers are remembered forever. BIRTH OF GAS POWER A quick scene is played out. It’s 1823 or so we are in a small dark shop, its smoke filled with an old workbench with tools all about. The forge is burning back in the corner, as the heart and soul of this shop. A man moves from one side to the other of some unknown object. This object is in the center of the shop. A young boy moves around it as the man does. He is trying his best to stay out of the man’s way. But stay close enough to help. Man touches the object, - Father - “Ouch! I don’t know what keeps us trying to make this work?” - Son - “That’s it! So it can work for us.” - Father - “Well then, When your right your right my son. Let’s not stop till that happens. And again, here we go, Stand back.” The man pulls on the heavy metal flywheel. The engine comes to life with a loud bang and a flash of fire Pow! Pow! An adjustment is made by the man. Now we hear the Putt…Putt of a smooth running gas engine. We now get a clear look at the world’s first workable gas engine. The boy screams and is running around. The man smiles at him and the gas engine. The Man and Boy shake hands. Dirty, greasy faces are shown. The scene fades away and is lost to the thief called time. PIONEERS OF POWER It’s now spring time 1912, in a very small farm town, on the central coast of California, named Templeton. The town was one of the first railroad towns on this line into this area. The town was started by the railroad company and given over to a Mr. Crocker. He was to build the town up and sell land lots for the building of homes. He started a bank and some other business. He did not much like the town being named after him so he changed it to his son’s name, Templeton. It’s a very nice town with very good people. We are in the kitchen of a 25 year old named Steve Kerby. This home had been a stage coach stop, run by Steve’s Father-in-Law, back in the old days. A small house with a big barn and a Blacksmiths shop, that seems to have been here forever. This place is now mostly a farmhouse because the railroad extended the end of the line another fourteen miles in 1889.Now ending in Santa Margarita. So now rail passengers load into stagecoaches there to head into San Luis Obispo over the Old Stage Coach road and down the steep Cuesta Grade .Santa Margarita is a good town but never seemed to capture the feel of the town back up the new railroad tracks . With the coming of the gas powered car we still have the old stage house, but with a new addition of a small gas station. Back in the old days Steve’s father in law ran the Stagecoach stop. And sort of being a rare thing at that time he could have a wife and family with him here. It was peaceful here and had been for some time now. Steve is trying to fix his own breakfast. Not a thing he takes to with any sort of ease. Steve has gone from being more or less a saddle bum. Working and moving from ranch to ranch across the west. Some of those ranches had cooks. Older men who no longer could work as hard in some ways and more in others, became cooks. As on the tall sailing ships of this day. Not known for their pleasant nature. Trail, Sail Cooks being old and grumpy men most of them. And if you wanted to have a full belly you would steer clear of coming up on the wrong side of these men, in the dirt and mud or on the Seven Seas. Some cowboys and sailors will tell you if you have nothing nice to say about the chow, Say nothing. Steve went from his childhood home and Mother to these Ranch cooks with a few meals of his own creation over open camp fires. Most of those were fish caught from a fresh water stream. With a California Golden trout every now and then when he was riding in the high country. His newest cook and the best of them all footsteps are heard on the back porch. An old ornate wood screen door suddenly opens off the kitchen’s back porch. Then with a small sharp wooden, bang! It closes. The woman, Steve’s wife is in a classic farm work dress. Her apron is full of colorful fresh eggs. As she now walks into the kitchen backwards at first. She is already talking to Tug, Steve’s old hunting dog. - Virgie - “No Tug! You stay there for now and keep Ol’ Smokey out of my new garden” spinning around now - “I just can’t seem to find the new egg basket your Mother bought me. Well, I’ll be switched, you cooking!” - Steve - “Ah..Ah..I'm trying....150 pages left to read on Facebook..
