What happens when you get a sailboat for FREE? You spend a lot of money, a lot of time, and do a lot of work! That’s the reality of getting a free sailboat.
We continue with the start of the refit on our Endeavour 32. Our first goal is to make the boat as water-tight as possible, and the old portlights leak so bad they’ve made it to priority one. We remove all of our 10 portlights in this video, but not without a fight. Either the original yard or a previous owner (there were many) used an adhesive instead of sealant to bed the portlights, making them almost impossible to remove without damage. Because of this, it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to refurbish and replace ANY of them, so we’re now looking for affordable new portlights to replace them.

Learning the Lines is a channel about us, an average couple in our 20’s, with big dreams to be sailing the world by the time we’re in our 30’s. We’re not afraid to jump into anything, put in the work, and learn as we go. For this reason our channel is very DIY focused, with the goal to show anyone watching that a lot is possible if you’re not afraid to make some mistakes along the way.
