Securing the Boat

...Securing Your Boat to a Dock After successfully parking your boat alongside a dock or in a slip, now it’s time to make sure the boat stays in place, using dock lines – also called mooring lines –  to tie the boat to the dock.In the truest of the nautical vernacular, one isn’t tying up to the slip or dock, one is ensuring the vessel is “made fast” to the structure. To stick with our simple-is-good philosophy, we’re addressing boating on a body of water that has no wind, waves, or fluctuations in water depth. The Equipment You’ll need four to six long dock lines (stout lines with a permanent eye spliced on one end) to secure the boat to the dock, and at least two fenders (heavy-duty cushions hung over the side of a boat to absorb the force of contact between a boat and a dock) to prevent the craft from touching the pier.Line Art As your boat eased near the dock, your crew probably placed a couple of fenders over the hull side, and hastily tied the boat to the nearest dock cleats or pilings – so far, so good.We often see boats tied up with only two lines – one at the bow and another at the stern – with each line running at about a 90-degree angle from the boat to the dock. These two lines will secure the boat to the dock, but the boat may still drift slightly frontwards or backwards (fore and aft), potentially allowing the craft to bump into other boats, especially at a crowded pier.The correct method of making your vessel fast to the dock or slip is quick and easy, usually......

The strategic risk of J Boats is mainly competitive risk. With the five-force analysis, first, demanding customers may choose to switch suppliers. J Boats has trouble in the cruising and entry-level markets, because cruisers think that it only builds racing boats. J Boats should attempt to identify who its customer is in every market. Second, suppliers may choose to limit availability or increase the cost. J Boats works with the builders such as TPI, but TPI doesn’t share either unexpected efficiencies or cost overrun with J Boats.

Floating Boat

...Isael Tore Science Experiment Rubber-Band Powered Altoids Boat 5th Grade Teacher: Mrs. Gainous Problem The purpose of my project was to find out which rubber-band powered Altoids boat would work better? My project consisted of two boats one small boat and one large boat. Hypothesis I predict that the small boat will propel the longest time. My prediction is that the small boat will work better because of less weight and size difference. My prediction of the large boat is that it will not work out due to size and weight. Procedures 1. Initial step gather all materials together. 2. Have a large space for water for example at home you can use the bath tub ready to place your boat tin in. 3. Next you begin to glue to Popsicle sticks on the right and left sides of the Altoid tin. (note: allow a few minutes for drying) 4. The following step consists of placing the rubber-band on the end of the Popsicle sticks to create the propeller for the boat. 5. Next you will turn the rubber-band holding the plastic propeller. 6. The final thing to be done is place your boat in the water for a minimum of 3 trials. Results My experiment resulted in my hypothesis being wrong. During the 3 trials of the of the small Altoid tin boat was as follows the boat only propelled for about 3 inches and stopped propelling each time immediately. The regular Altoid tin during the 3 trials......

A Journey by Boat

...A JOURNEY BY BOAT Journey is always a pleasurable experience for all and I am also not an exception. I never miss the chance to go on a journey, especially if it means going on a boat ride. Since Bangladesh is a riverine country, a boat ride gives one the clearest picture of the scenic beauty of Bangladesh. A few days ago, I made a journey by boat from Mongla to Paikgacha during my Autumn vacation. We were 6 in number and I was entrusted to hire an engine fitted boat. The boatmen were nice people. We had our breakfast early in the morning. We started off at 7:00 am. The sky was clear and the weather was sunny. The river was calm but full to the brim. The boat began to move smoothly; there were small waves on the river. We enjoyed the scenes on both sides of the river. There were green fields, paddy fields and jute fields, rows of trees which were full of flowers. These things charmed our eyes and soothed our souls. We saw many boys and girls farting and swimming in the river. Fishermen were catching fish and the women were seen fetching water in colorful pitchers. We reached a village market at around 12 pm. The boatmen cast anchor and we got down. We bought rice, eggs, and big hilsha fish and curds. The boatman kindly accented to cook the dinner. We took our meal and it was delicious. We took rest for a while and started off on our journey again. The boatman tried to reach the destination before the sunset as it was late afternoon. The sun was setting with......

The Open Boat

...nature. Your struggle may be as little as trying to change a tire in the middle of a rain storm or as severe as expressed in Stephen Crane’s story The Open Boat. From the beginning of time man has pondered the question as to “Why was I placed here on Earth?” We tend to see ourselves as being important, that we have to leave our mark in order for life to have some sort of meaning. In this story, four men, known simply as the captain, the oiler, the correspondent, and the cook, become stranded in the sea in a small boat. Together they are forced to bare the torments of one of Mother Nature’s toughest challenges, the open sea. In this process these four men learn much about nature and just how little they are on Earth. One of the characters, the correspondent, comes to the realization that nature is indifferent despite the struggles of the individuals, “When it occurs to a man that nature does not regard him as important, and that she feels she would not maim the universe by disposing of him…” (para, 174). The captain, who is seen as a symbol of strength to the other men on the boat, has doubt as to whether they can make it to shore safely, “Then the captain, in the bow, chuckled in a way that expressed humor, contempt, tragedy, all in one. “Do you think we’ve got much of a show now, boys?” (para, 25). The men in the boat are still upset with what fate has dealt them and seem to have the same opinion that they are still in control of their outcome, “If I am going......

Open Boat Doc

...The open boat Eric Tietz ENG 302 Twentieth century American literature March 28, 2011 Professor Maker The open boat As the small boat is getting tossed around in the rough sea’s, four men struggle to survive natures beast, the ocean. Due to a shipwreck these four men were stranded at sea. These four men were stranded at sea. These four men consisted of the following; a cook, who is not in shape and very messy, as he attempts to dump out water out of the small boat. An oiler by the name of billie who is physically the strongest man on the boat, rowing with one oar. Another unnamed correspondent who is rowing with the one other oar. Lastly, the captain of the ship who is severely injured laying down in the bottom of the boat. The article reveals some of the characteristics of these men, stating that the cook is the most talkative out of the four. This for one can lead to tension because repeatedly discussing whether or not if they will be found or rescued can cause frustration. Especially given the circumstances. The cook seems to over talk himself causing the men to keep over thinking and further downing hope. Also a few of the crew members may be tired and irritated of the constant annoying talking of the cook which could possibly lead to tension. In an environmental aspect, waves amongst waves are crashing over this tiny boat, in this large sea, day and night. The highest tension can be seen here in the article as they struggle to dump the......

Life Boat

...The struggles of thirty people engulf the life boat, consuming it, to sink under the pressure of the struggles of life. I make a quick scan of the absolute reality, and realize that I cannot judge, for I am not God, but I must make the decision of whose life comes to an end tonight and who has a second chance and lives on, or we all die in this black pool of fate. I don’t have the right to make this choice! But someone must decide, I the captain, must decide, or it will consume every last one of us! NO SURVIVORS?! I cannot let this happen! The situation in this scenario is so intense, such a test of true morality! It is almost impossible to say what decision I or anyone would make, unless you have actually experienced this! Can you honestly say that you know exactly what choice you would make? I must make a logical moral choice, to let everyone die is selfish and very illogical. The thought that I put all of these innocent souls in the situation in the first place, being the captain of the boat, would shame me! I am the captain and they are my responsibility. I must fully assess the situation and act, this is my only choice, I must salvage what human life I can! My conscience will always rule the logical decisions that I make in my life, although, this is my final test of leadership and heroism. I would use the “old fashion” logic, woman and children stay on the boat, and they must live in my mind. Whom do I choose after all the woman and children are safe? If there’s......

The Open Boat

...Alec Orozco Mr. Tom Treffinger ENG 102-005 4 March 2015 Correspondent’s Epiphany in “The Open Boat” In Stephen Crane’s story “The Open Boat”, Crane seems to focus on the struggle of man versus nature. The struggle is shown throughout the whole story, but is most clearly seen when the correspondent seems to be on the verge of death. The correspondent begins to see how nature “views” humanity. The four men who are on the boat all start to see that though they may have worked hard to live their lives, nature does not seem to care who lives or dies. In “The Open Boat”, there are four men trying to survive on a small boat there believe is smaller than a bathtub should be (Crane, 339). This posed a problematic situation because the “waves were most wrongfully and barbarously abrupt and tall, and each froth-top was a problem in small-boat navigation” (339). During this trial in the four men’s lives, the correspondent begins to contemplate on various things about their situation and his own life. One of the correspondent’s thoughts is “’If I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned, why, in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and contemplate sand and trees’”(350). The meaning behind this particular thought is the correspondent is wondering why he is living his life so long just to have it taken away for no real reason. Then the correspondent begins to ponder the death of “A soldier of......

The Open Boat

...In Stephen Crane’s “The Open Boat”, Crane demonstrates his idea that man cannot even attempt to best nature by the isolation and trials of the men in nature, the hardships that even the best of men face, and the lack of understanding of nature while isolated in the sea. Stephen Crane starts off the story by leaving the men in isolation from the world, a test, which they fail, if they could best nature without help except for their abilities as humans not connected to nature. The men, from the beginning of the journey feel despair. Even though they rowed for so long all the men discovered “that after successfully surmounting one wave you discover that there is another behind it” (Crane 604). The men knew from the beginning of the journey towards safety, that the waves in the sea, an example of nature, would best the men from its endurance. The men depended on the wind that nature provided them because they rode in a dingy that “man ought to have a bath-tub larger than the boat which” (603) they rode in. Second, the men cannot reach the shore by any means. Even though the “light-house had been growing slowly larger” (607), the men never reach the light-house. The lack of ability to reach the light-house shows that the men are not in touch with nature, in this case the sea, leading to their inability to reach the island. Lastly, the man cannot converse with the other men on shore, showing nature’s ability to disrupt man’s methods for communication. The men seemed dazzled and......
