That’s because while the idea is incorrect, those guys are idiots. And of the worst kind too: totally unaware and certain they aren’t.

That was the thing that struck me. It is obvious, at least to any TF members, that simply adding foam to a (formerly) sealed airspace will not increase buoyancy.

Well, maybe because they are the ones that are promoting such a stupid idea? It isnít their fault they are ignorant I suppose.

That doesn't strike me as an attack on them as much as it is a critical analysis of the modificationss they made to the boat which will not accomplish their objective of greater buoyancy, increases weight, provides a media to absorb and retain moisture thereby increasing weight more in the future and will ultimately devalue the boat.

When I rebuild my dinghy, I staffed with foam from old/use life jackets. It cost me $1 a piece. Why use expensive junk that soak the water?

These guys were mostly interested in stiffening up the dish-panning deck, even though they misused the term of buoyancy. I was very amused at the end when the guy wiggled back and forth with the boat in the water saying how much better the boat felt because until the open cell foam absorbs a lot of water, the boat only weighs as much more than it originally did by the net weight of the 12 cans of foam they put in it. They clearly misunderstood the concept of buoyancy.

Boston Whaler developed their legend while designing into their radically new cathedral hull boats the added weight of the closed cell foam. They are indeed heavy boats for their size. They did not add "buoyancy." They simply eliminated the empty places previously filled with air where water could fill the space with buoyant foam.

I am an old Navy trained salvage officer, and I know from buoyancy. I am most amused with this one. Glad somebody posted it.

The job didnt do itself. They did the job which is based on a false premise. Liability will be with them, not the job.

no point is attacking the idea, it sunk before the launch.
