Ferro Cement Boats

Ferrocement.com receives many inquiries about boats. Most ferro applications are on land.
This aquatic section is mainly a link service for mariner communications. It will expand over the years.

Ferrocement boats are not an easy call.

How old is the boat?
Pound a few holes in it to see if the steel is still there. Hire a good boat surveyor.

Plan to build one?
Great for barges and work boats, even sail boats (if you are an accomplished cement finisher).
The finish work begins with the steel.

Ferro cement boats are very good: Strong, and low maintenance on the basic boat.

Ferrocement.com contains information about ferro cement as a material, this should be
helpful to the ferro cement boater. Consider building a water tank first.
