I’m requesting your help in advocating for ferrocement and concrete boats.
Many of them seem to be ignorant of the advantages of cement.
Also they are emotionally attached to fiberglass.
Even though I started a thread on anchors and anchoring,
they have been vehemently attacking me about wanting to use a ferrocement boat.
Also they called Seasteaders “boater trash”… so gotta defend our name!
Here is a quote from Anchors and Anchoring thread.
Liveaboards have paved the way for the homeless? Seasteaders as you call them (boater trash) have been around since the first boat was made thousands of years ago. Its the other way around. Seasteaders have given a bad name to living aboard so there are many restrictions on live aboards to prevent seasteading.
Beyond the couple knee-jerk negatives they seem sensible, also this one has a point:
” It is very , very costly to have a condition survey done on a ferro boat.”
Integrity is hard to check on ferrocement… Many techniques even require a dry-docking, which is not feasible once your stead grows a reef. What about seperating the home and the reef, making the former more traditionnally built and the latter permanent and modular ?
