Steel hull is good, but riveted ... not so much

Titanic was riveted... I believe! Also believe: I've read there was some not so good circumstances regarding Titanic's rivets.

Often wonder the leakage factor in "ship-size" riveted boats. So far as small riveted boats... every one I've ever seen or listened to owner of - it seeps [leaks] water between the rivets. Especially after the boat hull has been "worked" a few times in rough water.

Good welds on good steel seems best. From what I've read!

Well - Somewhere I'd red that Titanic rivets had either material and/or installation troubles that helped to get the "seam" to open large.

Maybe I'm incorrect... but... maybe I'm not too.

"Faulty Rivets Emerge as Clues To Titanic Disaster" NYT

Now, after years of analysis and any number of false leads, experts say they have preliminary evidence suggesting that the Titanic, the biggest ship of her day, a dream of luxury come to life, may have been done in by structural weaknesses in some of her smallest and least glamorous parts: the rivets.

Two wrought-iron rivets from the Titanic's hull were recently hauled up from the depths for scientific analysis and were found to be riddled with unusually high concentrations of slag, making them brittle and prone to fracture.

''We think they popped and allowed the plates to separate and let in the water,'' said William H. Garzke Jr., a naval architect who heads a team of marine forensic experts investigating the disaster.

OK, I stand corrected. Never heard that one before but I suppose it could have been a contributing factor. I was more thinking in the context of the old steel boat that was posted and the Titanic being new would not have to worry about the rivets weakening with age.

I had a talk with the broker and came away NOT feeling warm and fuzzy. If the boat comes with free motor, via grants, why is the free motor not taken care of before the auction?

Guess that's akin to the reasoning why you can get free by filing for divorce till after you're married!

I think the grants were based on the use of the boat. For example, if it was a business grant, it wouldn't be available for a buyer who used the boat only for recreation.

My impression was that a buyer would want to go in with a solid business plan, and a fat wallet. Not something I'm ready to take on, but it would be great to see the old girl back in service.

The Triton has a fuel capacity of 336T of this 300T is useable.

Thank you Captain Tom. I appreciate your reply.

I'm not sure what Art was trying to say.

Looking at the hull finish I would suggest double diag or strip plank composite.
Dark colour is a mistake, eventual print through issues

Legal nonsense.

Just trying to be funny about the item regarding "free" engine ... but, not until after purchase - with seemingly no guarantee of "free" even then. Similar to some marriages that get disbanded but never really seem to dissipate nor enable full "freedom"! - LOL

If you purchase the boat, there is a possibility of perhaps maybe getting assistance on a replacement engine if the stars align, and you are facing the correct direction while doing a naked dance by the light of a full moon . . . . . . If it were easy, or even really possible, I believe they would have already done it . . . .

I thought this was a pretty stout looking trawler. I am a sucker for super tough looking boats. The price seems outrageous to me, but maybe that's were the market it at?
