    What does Sunbrella fabrics, boating, pantyhose and the moon have in common?

    October 20, 2019

    Hey Sarah O’ Kelly here with Skipper’s
    Review TV. I’m at the West Palm Beach International Boat Show 2019 here in
    Florida. Absolutely gorgeous day and I am with William McDaniel. Bill McDaniel
    Glen Raven Custom Fabrics. There you go One of those fabrics being
    Sunbrella. So it’s not exactly an exciting topic but it is a topic that we
    can all relate too. We’re gonna talk of course about the Marine end of
    things. Bimini tops, cushion covers, but I’m interested to know how did Sunbrella
    come up with and how do they get to the top of the line as far as no mildew,
    color not fading, you can scrub it with whatever? How did all that start and come
    about? Well it’s basically that is a factor of the fiber itself but Glen
    Raven is a hundred and fifty year old textile company. Sunbrella was
    founded in 1960 so we’re a 50 year old plus, product. The
    unique thing about Sunbrella is that it’s the the color actually is an
    integral part of the fiber. So at the point that the fiber is extruded or it’s
    formed, the colors put in prior to that.. our clothes for instance are basically
    the fibers formed, it’s died after the fact and it if you cut it it looks like
    a radish, the color doesn’t go all the way through. The durability, the
    performance, all of those characteristics are built into the fiber. So it’s not
    necessarily anything that we add to it. What about the factor of no mildew,
    how come there’s no mildew, mold all that? Well again, being a man-made fiber, mold
    and mildew is actually a microorganism so it has to have a food source or a
    protein source to be able to actually grow and and to live. If something
    gets onto the fiber or onto the fabric that if you spill something and don’t
    clean it off or whatever, then it has a potential for mold and mildew to grow.
    The other unique thing, don’t worry about it, if that happens because you can use a
    hundred percent bleach on Sunbrella and it has no effect on the
    color or the strength and it’ll kill the mold and clean it right up.
    So Sunbrella is like it’s a household name when it comes to outdoor fabrics
    and coverings, how did it start, how did it end up becoming what it is now? Well
    our company, Glen Raven, just a real brief history we started out life as a as a
    hosiery mill. One of our founders invented the pantyhose. The flag
    that’s on the moon is made from fabric is made in Glen Raven
    company. We transitioned into the awning business, again prior to
    the 1960, and at that time the fiber manufacturer came to us and said we have
    this unique product we’d like for you to look at for outdoor applications that’s
    how it got started at at that point it was two or three different styles and
    colors and now it’s literally hundreds of not thousands. Do you have any
    other newer products coming on the line or you still got the standard of what
    you’ve been offering for a number of years? I’m sorry, actually this year, very excited about
    this, it’s a product called Horizon. it’s a it’s a vinyl based product that
    has a five-year warranty against loss of color or strength or any kind of
    atmospheric intervention but uniquely it also has a three year warranty against
    bacterial staining or pinking which is something that’s sort of been an issue
    over the last few years. If it does do that within those three year
    time span, we also have a $40 per yard labor
    allowance to correct that. So it’s it’s the first time in the history of the
    company that we have a sunbrella branded product that’s not woven and it’s
    complementary to the fabrics that we do weave so we’re very excited about that
    and it’ll be available in just a very short time. What kind of uses will that
    be used for you think? It’s primarily seating, so you can use it in a cockpit
    area. What we like to say is Sunbrella is imminently cleanable but it’s not
    necessarily wipeable. This product is something you can wipe off as
    something gets on there. Typically if you get to it early enough
    you can wipe anything off of Sunbrella it’ll come off but if it stays
    there and it does happen to stain then it is cleanable but it’s not wipeable. so
    that’s what we were after All right, well thank you so much Bill.
    Thank you guys for watching and Sarah O’ Kelly at Skippers Review TV at the

    October 20, 2019

    Asalam-u-Alaikum my name is Zia Tabarak. And today we’re going to the historical city of Pakistan, Hyderabad. Although there are a lot of places for sightseeing & food in Hyderabad… …but today we’ll be visiting Resham Gali, Hyderabad. There bangles are famous in the entire country. Also we’ll try out Hyderabad’s famous fish. Breeze Fish Point’s Fish is so famous people come from different cities to try it out. A few of my university friends will be with me in this trip. And also with me will be my new “Realme 5 Smartphone”. This phone has Quad Rear Camera Setup… A long-lasting 5000mAh Battery… Super Fast Snapdragon 665 Octa-Core Processor… And a Beautiful Crystal Design. So let’s start our journey towards Hyderabad. Chalain! There’s a spot at Ali Baba Fuel Station & a lot of people have stopped here. People en route to Hyderabad stop here. This is the Nooriabad stop. A Tea Stall here and it’s quite crowded. He’s got Pakora’s here. What else do you have? Samosa’s, Pakora’s & Aloo Pakora’s as well. So this place is open 24 Hrs? No it’s 12 to 12. Is the restaurant open 24 Hrs? That too closes at 12 AM Midnight. So the Tea & Samosa’s are available there. And here at this “My Shop” they have French Fries & Juices and stuff. Hot & Crispy Fries are here. And how much are they? Rs. 200 Each. Large one is for Rs. 200. We’ve ordered only 3 items. This is the Pakora. It tastes good, but became cold ’cause of the weather, it just rained here. Aloo Tikki has huge chunk of potato in the middle. It’s good. Everything is a bit cold… I was expecting them to be warm. Let’s try out the tea. The tea is good. But these French Fries are really good. What phone is this Zia? This is my Realme 5. I got this for PKR 26,000. It’s a really amazing phone. It has 4GB RAM & 64GB Internal Storage.

And what’s this phone called? Realme 5. Ahad here is our Group Leader. We’ll be going towards Resham Gali from Hyderabad Bypass. Will we reach there before Sunset? I hope so. It might get dark? I think so, yeah. So finally we’re in Hyderabad… …and this is Hyderabad’s Resham Gali. It’s a really amazing place… …A lot of happening in this place. This place has a huge Bangles & Jewellery Market. And there are a lot of small food stalls at different points. What’s this? These are Potato Papad (Aloo Papri). This is a special item from Hyderabad. And how much is this? Its Rs.100 /250 Gm. My Aunt used to bring it for us in Karachi when she lived here. And I’m having this after a long time so let’s check it out. It’s a special gift from Hyderabad. The masala & oil on top of it gives it its flavor. Here’s a stall for Spring Rolls. Samosa’s & Spring Rolls are being fried here. And right in front of it is a Panipuri stall (Gol Gappay). The market is really crowded right now. So he’s your friend? Yes we work together. I watch all your Vlogs. Thank you so much! Is this Henna? Yes it is. Do you have cone as well? How much is this cone? Rs. 30 & 50. What food item do you like of this place? I like rolls of this place a lot. Are all these glass bangles? We have metal as well. Show me a few of them. This is Resham Gali & right next to it is Dehli Royal Fast Food. This place is crowded too. What was the reason behind naming this shop “Delhi”? We’re from Delhi. Your parents were from Delhi? Yes. So how old is this shop? About 45 years. And since then you have the same name? It’s a quarter chicken with a wing & a chest piece. And 2 bread slices with some French Fries. Chicken’s fried perfectly. Crispy from the top & doesn’t taste bland from inside. Now from Resham Gali we’re going to try out Shabbir’s Sandwich. I’ve heard that place has some good sandwiches as well. Let’s try it out as well. I’ve heard your sandwiches are really famous. What’s so special about it? Nothing special, just made from regular Dal & Eggs. You make it with eggs as well? Yes. It’s really famous. My brothers & I have been eating this since childhood. Let’s try it out then. It’s local style setup here. It’s a pretty big bun & they make 6 portions out of it. And 1 portion is around is Rs. 40. This the mixture of Dal & Kebab. And that’s how they put it on the bun. So this is the original Hyderabadi Sandwich. It has layers of Dal & Eggs… …topped off with Chutney & some masala’s. Looks crispy from outside & soft from inside. Wow! It tastes really good! The spices are a bit sour. Dal & Eggs are balanced as well. But the main thing is its spiciness. Really tasty. My friend Adeel brought me here. Been coming here since childhood. Thank you for bringing us here. Great! So finally we’re at Breeze Fish Restaurant. Karahi’s are being prepared here. What do you guys have in the menu? Mutton & Chicken Karahi, Fish Barbecue & Fried. What kinda fishes you have?

Waseem is putting the spices on it & that’s what I think is its special ingredient. Is this specially made? Yes it is. It’s our own recipe. That’s why fish is so famous? Yeah. Some Tamarind Chutney on top. He first put the spices after frying and then tamarind chutney. Then I’ll pour oil on it again. Oil again? Yes exactly. It’s taste enhances after putting oil on it again. Lal Muhammad is marinating the Grilled Fish. Our food has arrived. This is the Chicken Karahi & this is Mutton Karahi. This is all Fried Fish. This one’s the Grilled Fish. And this is the Fried Fish. And these are the Karahi’s & Chapati & Naan. Let’s try this Grilled Fish first. It’s boneless & they use their special spices on it. The fish tastes great and the spices which they’ve put on it. It’s a bit spicy so let’s taste it with this Raita. It’s a really great fish. This is Grilled Rohu & the spices on it look amazing. I haven’t had fish like this anywhere. The spices are absolutely amazing. The spices have a unique taste. Really great. The best thing is that the fish is fresh. Their Karahi is also really famous. The Karahi has that authentic taste. The Karahi is great as well. So this Grilled Fish, Fried Fish & Karahi… …all 3 of these items tasted great. So this concludes our trip to Hyderabad.
