    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

    How To Use Elastic Vinyl Repair Tape

    October 19, 2019


    Hey guys, this is Seth with www.repairmymoonwalk.com. Today I was going to show ya’ll our repair
    tape. The repair tape that we have we have in various
    quantities to suit your needs. I’m going to show ya’ll what quantities we
    have so you can best decide what you require. So the first thing that we have here is the
    biggest you can order this, again, from repairmymoonwalk.com. this is three inches by five feet long. It’s on a spool I’ll take it out and show
    ya’ll real quick. So if you look here it’s on a spool. Again, this is three inches by five feet long. It’s got an alcohol prep pad and instructions
    for use. That is a little bit bigger, and it can be
    cut up into small sections if you need it. The next is the smaller box. This has a three inch by twelve inch long
    strip inside of it as well as various smaller patches already cut up for you. So if you think that you need one unit repaired
    you can keep one for each unit. Whatever you need. We also sell a six inch by twelve inch sheet
    and this is all that you get right here and this might be all that you need. You can cut smaller squares out of it. Any shape or size you need to cut out of this
    you can. Again, we don’t want to sell you something
    that you don’t need so we can sell you exactly what you need as a company. We also have a three inch by twelve inch strip. This is the smallest that we sell but again,
    might be all that you need. Alright guys, so I’m going to be showing you
    what we’re going to be doing here today. The first repair that I’m going to be showing
    you is a simple tear of 18 ounce vinyl. And again this is standard 18 ounce vinyl
    that you find on your jumpers. And then we also have, again, 18 ounce vinyl
    and 18 ounce vinyl. This is just a mock up of a seam of a jumper,
    bounce house, slide, whatever, and I’m going to show you how to patch a seam. So I’m going to show ya’ll this material,
    it’s very stretchy and very elastic but it’s also very strong . So we’re going to show
    you right here this is just a pen. All the way down it won’t even poke through. This is the first one that I had shown you. This is the 18 ounce vinyl with the tear and
    I’m going to show you how to patch that. So the first thing i’m going to do is I have
    my three inch by twelve inch strip. What I’m going to do is I’m going to take
    it and I’m going to cut a square. It’s always best if you round the tips or
    the square to make it more of a circle edge. All right, so I rounded off the edges a little
    bit more just like that, and I’m going to find the edge there. And just take that across the top. Smooth it down for a second. And there you go. All right, so this is your typical seam application
    and as you can see we already rounded out the edges of this one. So again, I’m going to find the top here. The less you touch it the better. So I had a little bit of a bubble so I peeled
    it up just a little bit, and now I’m going to stretch it back out again. Flatten it out. And that’s how you repair a seam. Some of the benefits of this is that it’s
    transparent so it’ll match what color of vinyl that you’re putting it on. If you’re out on a rental it’s easy to apply
    out on the field. The difference between this and duct tape
    is when you apply the duct tape or glue it’s going to get really messy when you peel it
    off it’s going to leave residue and over time it can really do a number on your vinyl. So if you bring it in to us to get repaired
    we’re going to have to pull off that duct tape and then it’s going to be a hassle and
    it’s going to cost you more money. But if we have the tear aid on it, we’ll just
    pull off the tear aid and get right to the repair. All right guys so that’s how you use our repair
    tape. Those are the functions of the repair tape
    and the quantities of the repair tape. If you have any questions, the information
    is on www.inflateonline.com. We also have a live chat on the website if
    you have any questions. You can give us a call or email us. Also don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe
    the video. It really helps us out to be able to make
    more videos to help you. And it helps us as well. So if you have any questions, again, don’t
    forget to go to the website. You can order any of the sizes that I’ve shown
    you today and we’ll see you in the next video.

    This Is Phil Fish

    This Is Phil Fish

    October 19, 2019


    This is Phil Fish. Th-th-th-th-this is Phil Fish. Phil is, or was, a game designer. He worked at Ubisoft, entered the Indie scene through TIG Source, founded Kokoromi, co-starred in the documentary “Indie Game: The Movie”, and released a game called Fez. Maybe you heard of it. And everybody hates him. That’s an exaggeration; if you don’t hate Phil Fish, you probably either know somebody who does, or you have never heard of him. He’s been called a racist, a liar, arrogant, overrated, and generally, quote, “an asshole”. End quote. This video is not about defending Phil Fish, or about setting him on fire. This video isn’t even about Phil Fish; not really. This video is about everyone in the world who isn’t Phil Fish. We–and by we I mean those who would eventually be Phil’s “public”–first met Phil on the forums at TIG Source, sort of the Indie game CBGB’s. He was a talented artist that delivered very constructive, if blunt, critiques on the art sub-forums. He was one of dozens of strong personalities; he had a tendency to fly off the handle, though rarely unprovoked, even if it didn’t seemingly take much provocation. You could most easily set him off by talking about who was and wasn’t “really indie”. The point being, he wasn’t a shit talker. He was a guy who called out shit talkers, though where you place that dividing line likely depends on your opinion of Phil Fish. Early in development he started a dev log for Fez that quickly became the most popular dev log in TIG Source history. The game around that time blew the fuck up on Twitter, and an early demo won an Excellence in Visual Art Award at the Independent Games Festival. Phil was becoming, quite rapidly, a big deal. He was the subject of dozens of articles and interviews, and quickly received funding from the Canadian government, based solely on his first commercial release, which was, at that time, little more than a prototype. This rankled many developers who had been releasing finished products for years in total obscurity. It is worth noting that Fez’s popularity didn’t really mean people thought it was “better” than other games in development. Fez’s selling points were Phil’s art, guided by his incredibly demanding standards, and its 2D/3D mechanic, which was near impossible to describe but could be instantly understood in motion. The game blew up on Twitter because it was perfectly suited to Twitter. Everything you needed to know about it could be understood in four seconds of video, or even an animated gif. It was a game that compressed well, and the more compressed information is, the further can travel on the web. This took no particular genius on Phil’s part, he simply lucked into an idea that elegantly fit the mold of how games became popular in 2008, and used that system superlatively. Other developers games could be better, deeper, more cerebral, but not half as memetic. But the way Phil acted in the face of this popularity seemed smug and self-satisfied, as if Phil felt it were owed to him. His acceptance speech for the art award at the IGF had no trace of humility or even surprise; in interviews he often ranted about what was wrong with other games, much as he had on TIG Source, with the tacit implication that Fez would be superior. And when folks shared their unvarnished, profanity-laden opinions with him on the internet, he responded right back in kind, as he had ever done. But before, if a complete stranger randomly told him to go fuck himself, no one cried foul if he told them to go fuck themselves right back. This was just two strangers flaming each other on the internet, and if anyone was in the wrong it was the one who started it. But now Phil wasn’t insulting a stranger, he was insulting the audience. This was interfacing with the public. The dynamic between these two people is viewed completely differently as soon as one of them becomes famous. To talk about Phil Fish is to talk about fame. More and more people began to speak toxically about Phil, and to Phil. Resentment began with developers, but soon expanded, either by spreading out from TIG Source or because Phil was just good at making enemies. The complaint that Phil had never released a game, lobbed at him most every time his name was mentioned on the internet, masked a deeper complaint. Hundreds of developers on TIG Source had never finished a game and no one complained about that. But none of them were famous. The deeper complaint wasn’t that Phil was more famous than them, but that he was more famous than he deserved. At this point, Phil was basically Nickelback. Now, people don’t hate Nickelback because they think the music is bad. People think loads of music is bad and don’t give it any further thought. People hate Nickelback because the music is bad and popular. But it’s more complicated than that. It’s because someone at a studio heard Nickelback and thought, “I can sell that.” It’s because the music was so aggressively overplayed on the radio, and aggressively advertised, as if a PR department were trying to sculpt a mediocre band into a sensation regardless of worthiness. It’s because, despite all the hate, Nickelback’s fame proved that this was actually working, that millions were buying into it. It’s because Nickelback represented the apotheosis of an existing trend of shallow, whiny hard rock, which they made even more popular, and spawned legions of shallow, whiny imitators to continue the trend. It’s because every step of this process seemed to have been taken solely for the benefit of the people getting rich off the record sales. “I hate Nickelback”, as a sentence, voices a complex opinion on cultural trends in popular music, and aligns the speaker with those who hate not just Nickelback, but all that Nickelback represents. They resent Nickelback the concept. Nickelback the actual band is of secondary importance. The band’s crime, other than the writing of the actual songs, is their complicity in this system. They signed the record deal. They deemed themselves worthy and deserving of this studio-constructed fame. In a phrase, they bought into it. The ire felt for Nickelback the band is only somewhat harsher than the ire felt for the fans that buy the records. They are just the first and last links in a chain of politics; studio politics, radio politics, and record politics, that are seemingly ruining music. This entire chain comprises Nickelback the concept, and when people say “I hate Nickelback”, this is the Nickelback they’re referring to. And when someone tweets “I hate Nickelback” at Nickelback, they aren’t really talking to the band. They’re talking publicly to culture about what Nickelback represents. The actual tweet to the actual band is just a shorthand. Saying “I hate Phil Fish” became the same sort of shorthand. Phil was friends with a few dozen other indie-famous developers, so he came to represent circle-jerking; the idea that you got indie-famous by being friends with the Indie-famous. Phil had government funding and impressive pixel art skills, so he came to represent the idea that money or polish or retro aesthetics, rather than gameplay, were what guaranteed press attention. So much of the conversation was about Phil, not just about Fez, that he came to represent shameless self-promotion, egomania, fame breeding fame, over-emphasis on personality over product, or whatever else. Phil was not just getting undeserved attention, he was the embodiment of undeserved attention. It’s worth noting that these popular beliefs about indie politics are not necessarily, any of them, true. But they are firmly believed. Phil Fish the concept and Phil Fish the human being orbited around each other for the four plus years of Fez’s development, and a small cottage industry grew up among reporters and bloggers of announcing whenever the two were in alignment. Indie Game: The Movie was filmed while Phil was legally divorcing his business partner, whom the film anonymized, and the end credits said he’d asked not to appear in the film. Shortly after release, Phil’s business partner said he didn’t “ask not to be in the film”, he was not asked to be in the film, and that he’d actually been given no opportunity to rebut Phil’s account of events with his own account. This quickly became subject or citation of several articles, and quickly flourished as a topic on blogs, forums and social media. At an Indie Game: The Movie panel at GDC in 2012, when a Japanese man in the audience asked developers what they think of current Japanese games, Phil took the mic and said, bluntly, “They suck”. Within a day, “Phil Fish says Japanese Games Suck” was headline news on Eurogamer, IGN, and Kotaku, among others, and the comments filled up with people calling Phil a racist. And when, later that week, Fez won the Seamus McNally Grand prize at the Independent Games Festival, Phil took his victory lap by telling a stranger on Twitter to choke on his dick. The stranger had, per usual, insulted Phil for no reason. This also became news. Two years later this is still cited in articles about Phil. Now, game-related news, editorials, reviews, and criticism all fall under the same vague banner of “games journalism”, but none of these things are “news” in any traditional sense. They have no material repercussions on gaming as a whole, on how games are made and distributed, or even the development of Fez. This is merely gossip, unless… Phil is functioning as a symbol. Which is precisely how he was being used. Because talking about Phil is talking about fame. It is a known secret that Phil’s former business partner is musician Jason DeGroot. For all his statements that the filmmakers were liars and that he’d never gotten to tell his story, DeGroot never told his story. The only specific he ever shared was about that line in the end credits, which no one disputed. The line was immediately removed from all digital copies of the film and was not included on the DVD. As for why he quit the company, or why he took so long to sign the papers despite the very real damage it could do to the game, many choose to believe DeGroot’s entirely hypothetical explanation, usually assuming that it centers on Phil being such an asshole. At GSC following the “they suck” comment, Phil Fish and Jon Blow had a back-and-forth conversation about overarching trends in both Japanese and American game design traditions, offering criticism of the American trends as well as exceptions to the Japanese trends. The moment where Phil wrote off Japan entirely simply didn’t happen. Something Phil did say, however, was “you guys need to get with the times”, “you guys” directed at the Japanese man in the audience, essentially casting him, intentionally or otherwise, as the representative for his entire culture. Problematic generalizations like this happen all too often in games culture. It’s a topic that deserves to be discussed, that sorely needs to be discussed. It would have been entirely justified to use Phil Fish to have a conversation about tokenism and cultural insensitivity. But instead, people used tokenism and cultural insensitivity to talk about Phil Fish. The useful discussion, the one that is larger than Phil Fish, didn’t happen, and when that discussion does happen elsewhere, not nearly as many people show up to the conversation. In fact, many who do show up insist It’s not a problem. People cared about racism only inasmuch as it let them hate Phil Fish. Finally, consider the “choke on my dick” tweet. Then consider this one from the following year. Neither is any more newsworthy than the other, the headline for either could be “Phil Fish has Strong Opinion”. But one is news and one is not. Anita Sarkeesian is a feminist critic who talks about the portrayal of women in games, and cyber mobs, and because of this she has accepted that she will get constant rape and death threats for the rest of her career. And though she was a major figure at the time, Phil praising and defending Anita Sarkeesian didn’t become news. Nothing positive Phil ever says becomes news. Because the headline isn’t really “Phil Fish has Strong Opinion”. Phil Fish is a symbol of everything that is supposedly wrong with indie games. He’s newsworthy when he acts like a symbol. Anything that doesn’t fit the narrative is ignored on blogs, forums, and social media, and news sites cherry-pick the moments when Phil Fish the human being looks, from the right vantage point, like Phil Fish the concept. The real headline is “Preconceptions about Phil Fish Confirmed”. Confirming preconceptions is what makes it news. Which is not to say that Phil was necessarily blameless in any of these situations, but that given many angles to view them, people consistently choose the harshest ones. This is a deliberate choice, made to preserve the idea that Phil is just an asshole. The philosophy here, which is troubling, is that there are right ways and wrong ways to be famous on the internet, and while there may not be any consensus on what the right ways are, there is sometimes consensus on who is doing it wrong. As with most philosophies, this can’t really be proven or disproven. There’s no sense trying to argue someone out of the opinion that Phil is an asshole for not acting the way famous people are supposed to act, or, crucially, for not acting the way we would act in his place. This is a popular argument because it’s an argument you can’t lose. No one can empirically prove whether Phil is or isn’t an asshole. What gets alighted from this argument is the assumption that famous assholes, people who don’t act the way famous people are supposed to act, deserve to be punished. In 2013, Phil quit the games industry, cancelling Fez 2 one month after it was announced. The final culmination of Phil’s punishment came in the form of a blowout with Marcus Beer, The Annoyed Gamer. Guesting on an episode of Invisible Walls, Marcus Beer called out Phil, calling him an arsehole, wanker, and pisspot, for refusing to comment on Microsoft’s new self-publishing policy when asked by journalists. Marcus’s argument was this: that because Phil was famous, journalists wanted his opinion, and that Phil should give it freely; that Phil should be grateful they were asking for it, that many would envy his status in the industry, that he owed journalists for all the attention they’d given him, that he had no right to refuse the press now after having shamelessly promoted himself online and in Indie Game: The Movie, and that the press should give less attention to his next game if he wouldn’t drive on the two-way street. Phil was being famous wrong. Now, one incentive for people like Marcus Beer and the staff of Kotaku and Eurogamer to say contentious things about Phil Fish is because contentious things about Phil Fish are guaranteed thousands of page views. People are invested in hating Phil. The announcement of Fez 2’s cancellation on his company website presently has almost 2,000 comments, most of them insults; long, consecutive, unbroken strings of insults. People saying good riddance, suggesting he fuck off, kill himself, or, of course, choke on their dicks. At this point, Phil is practically as famous for being hated as he is for making Fez. The hatred of Phil leaves no room for reconsideration – people have to commit to it. You can’t publicly, repeatedly, encourage someone to commit suicide, and later reevaluate, think “maybe he’s not an asshole”, without then thinking, “well if he’s not, I certainly have been”. It becomes psychologically necessary to hate Phil, and permanently. Here, finally, is my point. Let’s do a thought experiment. Imagine you’re at some Manhattan cocktail party, and in conversation with a stranger you’ve only just met, you say, “Can you believe this bullshit Phil Fish said on Twitter?” Do you think the more plausible response is A: “God I know, what an asshole”, or B: “I don’t really care”? The correct answer is C: “Who the hell is Phil Fish?” Phil is not famous the way we are used to thinking about celebrities. Despite being in a movie, a documentary about video games, the average random passerby has no idea who he is, nor do they know Jon Blow, and while they’ve probably heard of Minecraft, they probably don’t know who Notch is. Same for Cliff Bleszinski, same for Ken Levine. The world at large does not know or care who makes video games. Fez has shipped a million units, so in a random sampling of 7,000 strangers, it would have been played by one of them. Phil is subculturally important, not culturally important. He’s only famous to us. And Phil is famous because a lot of us talk about him. Algorithmically, this is how search engines work. The more people talk about him, the higher he appears in searches. Similarly, the more we talk about Phil, the more articles get written about him, because they are guaranteed high readership and high ad revenue. People discussing how much they hate Phil makes Phil more famous. We’re used to thinking about fame as something granted to a person by people with media access. The reason people hate Nickelback is because of that record contract, that Faustian bargain. They bought into it. They had to be discovered, someone had to connect them with video directors, record producers, stylists, advertisers. This is not what fame looks like on the internet. There, fame is not something you ask for. Fame is not something you buy into. Fame happens to you. Phil doesn’t have an agent. He doesn’t have ad executives. He doesn’t tour the country on press junkets, and he doesn’t have a PR department. (Obviously.) He talked on social media. He did interviews when invited to do them. He was invited into a documentary. People read these things as shameless self-promotion, or a desperate need for attention, or both, but that’s projection. Nobody knows Phil’s reasons for doing them but Phil and the people who know him personally. Phil never asked to be famous. We made him famous. Maybe in part because we found him entertaining, maybe in part because we found him irritating. Largely because many of us were once sincerely excited about his game. But he became a big deal because we kept talking about him. On the internet, celebrities are famous only to the people who talk about them, and they’re only famous because we talk about them, and then we hate them for being too famous, and make them more famous by talking about how much we hate them. Could there ever be anything more self-defeating than this? If Nickelback decided tomorrow that they didn’t want to be famous anymore, they would have to give up the tours, the roadies, the record labels, the billboards, things most of us don’t have. They would have to settle for normal life. The only way out for Phil was to give up what most of us consider normal life: openly being ourselves on the internet. Because his normal life is what made him famous. Anything Phil says in public is newsworthy. He had to quit or privatize all social media, he had to stop speaking to his friends in public, if he goes to GDC or Pax or Indiecade, even as an attendee, there will be photos. My impression of Phil Fish is that he was young, and hungry, and talented. He seemed to perversely enjoy when people started talking about him; that cockiness usually comes with an arrogant assurance that you deserve to be spoken of, and a gnawing fear that you actually don’t. For me the most telling scene of Indie Game: The Movie is when Phil realized that an article about Fez he thought had been very popular had actually gone largely ignored, and, looking destroyed, he asked, “Why do I care so much?” I read him as a guy who took a weird joy in fucking with people’s expectations of him, but knew that he actually cared what people thought of him, cared about being accepted, and also wondered if that wasn’t very bad for him. What is this impression of Phil worth? Nothing. Everything I know about Phil comes indirectly, from the internet. I have access to the same set of information as everyone else, and we all draw wildly different conclusions. We project different things on Phil, which says more about us than it does about him. I will not say that Phil isn’t an asshole. I will only say that none of us know him. And why this matters to you is because if you’re watching this, you are on the internet. On the internet, there is no hard line between those who do and don’t have access to the media, because the internet is media access. There is a wide, fuzzy gradient between the famous and the unfamous. The person whose cat video has 2,000 views is slightly more famous than the person whose video has 15 People can be WordPress famous, Tumblr famous, Facebook famous. People can dedicate 20 years to their career and suddenly get very famous very fast in their 40s thanks to the internet, or they can find themselves famous without trying to be. You may wake up and find something you tweeted last night has 45,000 retweets, and you will find yourself suddenly held to different standards. You won’t necessarily know why this thing was the thing that made you a big deal. You won’t necessarily know how long you’ll be a big deal, but suddenly the people who follow you aren’t just people anymore. They’re an audience. And they want you to be something and they don’t necessarily agree on what that something is. How would you want them to judge you? Two final points about Phil Fish. One: Phil is an exception. He is white, male, middle-class and presumed to be both straight and cisgender. If you lack one or more of these traits, expect this kind of backlash sooner. For people who are any kind of social minority, they can expect Phil Fish levels of hatred, or worse, for any perceived offense. Sometimes the perceived offense is having any opinion at all. Two: Prior to the release of Fez, Phil released Glee and Super Hypercube through Kokoromi. Fez was his third Indie game.

    Boating Basics: Steering a Powerboat | BoatUS

    October 19, 2019


    You just got a new boat? Congratulations, you’re in for a ton of fun! Now, right about now, you might be wondering if steering a boat different than steering the car. Well, it’s not very different. But, yeah, it is different. So let’s talk about some of the basics you need to know. Hi folks, I’m Lenny Rudow from BoatUS Magazine, and I love talking to people who just bought their first boat! Trust me. This is going to be awesome! But you do have to remember that since you don’t have tires and asphalt and friction, a boat depends on thrust for steering. So as a result, when we’re moving along slowly as we are now and I turn the steering wheel, it has a very different effect than when the boat’s moving quickly and I turn the steering wheel. Watch how as I increase thrust the effect of the turn changes. It’s important to remember, folks, that different boats all do steer differently. And the difference between an articulating drive like this outboard and a rudder that depends on water flowing across it to force a turn can be rather dramatic. You’ll spend a lot of time cruising along, so let’s look at steering while the planing speeds. The most important thing to remember is that whipping the wheel around can have a dramatic effect on everybody on board. It’s best not to make sudden extreme turns, especially without first warning everybody aboard. Also check all around you for other boats. Look over your shoulder, make sure there are no big waves and other potential hazards. One of the biggest problems people have is oversteering. Tiny incremental changes of the wheel will have a very big effect when you’re up on plane. So if you’re headed for something like this marker, look at how big an effect a tiny little turn of the wheel can have. When you don’t have a marker or some other obvious object that you’re steering for, pick a point on the horizon and then just make tiny increments in the steering wheel — tiny little changes — to stay right on that point. See people? I told you that was gonna be fun! Now, of course the one thing that stresses out a lot of folks is docking the boat at the end of the day. Now, I want to share one little tip with you. Remember that whole thrust thing? What you do not want to do is put the motor into gear and then steer. No, no. Steer first while the boat’s in neutral. Then apply thrust, and you get the maximum turn. Shift into neutral if you need to change. Turn the wheel and then apply thrust again. Make your turns while you’re in neutral and only apply thrust when it has the most significant effect. Of course there’s a lot more to docking a boat. So what folks should do is continue scrolling down the BoatUS YouTube channel. We have a lot of really good videos on how to dock a boat. Remember, people, above all keep a good lookout. Before you make a turn, check over your shoulder, make sure there’s no other boats coming, no markers in your way, nothing like that. Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this video. I hope you’ll scroll on down and click on subscribe to the BoatUS YouTube channel. And, please, fill out the comments below and let us know what you would like to see more videos on.

Holy crap Dude you shout out lots of goodies of the Valkyries Sounds pretty important that’s putting it mildly whadda a legendary theme with them a Fair question and yet not one easily answered I know more than most but much of their history has bailed in secrecy My own experience with about curries ends with my opponent Avoiding the question head as I said brother. It’s complicated I don’t know why or how they become such a wretched features Ooooh Asgardian Steel The valkeries lad The more what they endeavor there is not he will be dangerous. Well that hasn’t stopped you before ay? Man that was tough Holy God, that would that fight had to be almost Well not perfect truth Atreus! follow me There was a lot of it if where I had to be like on point every single time And if I wasn’t I was just gonna get killed so I had to like turn off my brain and just start smacking stuff perfectly Who paid off that was a good fight that was fun? Had to try and treat it like a Dark Souls battle at one point um I want Glee’s once Yes And I had to switch up my attacks I couldn’t use their the throw a really powerful one that I had been using Because I had to use the anvil again because it just wasn’t working River of knives is that it? No glaive storm And what’s super powerful? I had the boars on for him because they actually helped a lot It made him a lot stronger it stunned the enemy a lot more. Okay, so these are the last two for here Nice nice nice switch stances Wow I can do switch sense in just punchy mode Okay, I should upgrade my my thing Nice. Press l2 to pick up and hurl a large boulder. That is so anime oh I want that I can’t get it though I have no XP left right. Where are we going oh? Wait where am I going in general? That’s what I wanted to know The journey returned to the lake of nine so can I just use this and go back to Brock’s no no no no Shit I was gonna say use that I ended up using the thing anyway oh Well, maybe you’ll get more boat stories by going this way never get more boy stories I Just wish this wasn’t so slow which You don’t realize it have you noticed that there’s no loading screens in this game at all yet? and it has kept the the 1 camera shot thing and A reason for slow elevators like this it might seem tedious and the fact that you can’t skip any of the cutscenes But all of this is hiding the loading screens so when you’re in a cutscene the reason you can’t skip it is because It’s loading the rest of the game in the background while it plays that cutscene, and then if you skip Then it would break that illusion of just being one camera shot and no loading screens anymore It’s the same with slow elevators That’s the same reason the door closes behind you because now it’s D loaded the area behind you and now it’s just loading What’s in front of you? It’s fascinating. It’s very very clever Wait well now I’m here. I might as well go on the boat Well now that we’ve got the giant system We need to learn the travel moon to your tonight So we can carve it into that special gateway atop a beach and open realm travel to the land of the Giants You don’t know it good sound design snow, but the serpent did mention that the Giants have entrusted that secret Fortier Is very much enriched the doors Samaritan elite for generations until our snake man shifted his weight there. We shall find the people will Know and that vault isn’t going anywhere soon the same towards the boat. We shall see boy You Jersey boy It was good audio design as soon as you go into the caves as soon as you go under the cavernous rock areas The sound all started to reverberate That was a singular piece of Cruelty even for dinner as if a marriage wasn’t punishment enough Clair was better to him than he deserved He stuck it out to all manner of indignity all in the name of maintaining peace and safety for her people Turning his corruption of her magics it became more than she could stomach and at long last he broke it off More than she’d dare to hear After so much time together he knew her vulnerabilities and exploited them to craft curses she could never break But still he wrote down about warrior spirit React even to defend herself No living thing may see harm by blade nor spell In a world this belligerent. What choice does he have but isolation hmm poor Freya I Guess if I was her I’d spit in your face, too, I lad So would I… Look at you guys bonding Namir you better not take my boy away from So it is I I Know That’s not where that was why did I do that? And You’ve already turn into Coco Pops and they get destroyed Hey, but it’s missing But the middle panel is missing wait I thought here was a God not a giant ah but he was loved by everyone including the Giants He was the only one they gifted with their special site. Hey, I wonder if the Giants left a triptych about me somewhere – I Wouldn’t count on it head Boy read the sand Actually come on. Let me show you how to do this that is not necessary. Not me so much Let me teach you something oh That’s cute Father-son bonding moment come on You already speak it learning to read will leave that on. I know how to read boy Just not this tongue. You have right there So the Rings represent a lot of different things some God’s some animals wait Oh Am I going too fast? Sorry not that?

It’s true But I’m gonna get to know you really well you’re gonna be my new brother Right after I finish me off Whoops costly car broke him oh Let me show you how it’s done boy. Oh, why didn’t he take it in time? Fight max I can actually fail that I was busy being dramatic oh I failed such an easy thing go ahead oh Come on. Let me show you how to read this that is not nice. I don’t need to see this again teach you something um So he went into Spartan rage the boy did, but he’s sick here we go Yeah Cuz he doesn’t know the crane nose is a God so Kratos is stronger than him Again you little bitch brother the boy yes You have to get into flair quickly, there’s no other way There’s a storm a-brewing Oh shit everything’s all dark and gray and gloomy now Take the bolt fares isn’t fine The hell is going on Oh geez is the boy doing this something looks like it’s on fire What if the boy is actually like insanely strong But because kratos hasn’t told him what he is especially now that you’ve taken to towing your skin As far as there’s a blind spot for this is our smartest move anyone can heal him it’s What is happening to him?

(No way!) No, that’s the swamp would stay buried oh you were before doesn’t matter This boy is not your past. He is your son, and he needs his fate. No way! This rune opens the bridge to Helheim When you are there do not under any Circumstances cross the bridge of the Damned there is no road back understand Boy hey Malloy You must hurry through my garden There’s a path leading to my boat to take it Return home dig up your past do whatever you need to do. Just bring me back the bridge keepers heart Freya.. And last we spoke I was no You were right to distrust the word of a God no need to explain not to me not for that Will keep him safe Thats a mothers promise No way! am I going to get the fucking blades of chaos. NO! Helheim of all places you alright brother, I will do what I must leave me be Holy shit, and I’ve never seen oh Damn I’ve never seen Kratos that worried before he’s never asked someone for help The blades of chaos are the weapons from the original games the chain blades Because they’re made by gods, and they they have fire in them am I seriously gonna get the blade to Chaos for this game You’re not that crazy to do that are you? Game Developers!? Athena! Athena Get out of my head When we’ve got to so many throwbacks happening for the old games right now Jesus If you’ve never played or Watched or anything about the old games you won’t realize the hype, that’s happening right now. How the hell is going on Thor or Odin are pissed When he said I must go home Obviously he means the cabin, but for a second. I thought he meant Greece And there was like there’s no way he’s gonna go back to Greece is he But that made no sense This game is so cool those people there Hell hello And also him saying She said you have to go to hell hell Hyneman hell world or hell Rome and She’s like do Do you know hell and he said not this one because Kratos has been to the underworld in Greece like two or three times? That’s a new attack a guy Come here ain’t nothing stopping me now. I have a boy to save he’s the shit Go away Don’t care anymore you Know if you got those blades you’d be able to take care of these guys no problem Maybe that’s why it’s doing this cuz it’s like this is our week you arrogance fees right now And then is going to give you the blades Locally jumps in the air after that’s awesome All right all right we’re doing this That’s what was underneath he told the boy to never go down there Oh, I’m so excited to see what they look like Holy shit Hands are shaking There’s nowhere you can hide Spartan But as much distance between Hill when the truth as you want It changes nothing Pretend to be everything you are not teacher husband Father But there is one unavoidable truth you will never escape You cannot change You will always be Monster I know But I am your monster no longer Oh Oh FUCK YA!!! I Can’t believe they actually put the blades in the game Everyone was always complaining about her not in the game anymore just the ax you had no idea They’re so awesome no she fucking face Yes This is the coolest oh my god, it’s like when they played Metal Gear Solid 4 for the first time and I went back to shadow Moses I Am so happy, I’m gonna cry happy tears right now Door to the realm between realms over there Yeah Jesus man they actually did it I Was not expecting that at all I know I can just switch between them I Thought how your blades work now because there was supposed to be the thing that happened with the blades Originally the reason he has the bandages on his Aaron’s is because the blades were made from fire And they were made by the God of War Ares And they were seared to his flesh so the chains wrapped around his arms, and they were burned into his arms And he literally could not take them off. They were stuck on his arms forever I Don’t know how he got them off in the end, maybe because he killed all the gods and all the power vanished Well, I don’t know how your blades are still working, but I’m not gonna question it magic oh I’m so pumped up right now. Holy hell Corie verlag you were a mad scientist you’re a genius I Hope they’re actually in the game from now on and it’s not just a once-off kind of thing oh Man legit you weren’t talking to me back there elegiggle you’re cleared up. Just mother I Can assure you I’m unsurpassed in keeping confidences Well you know where to find me and for the record I’d already guessed you would click Athena dead giveaway Damn Poor Kratos, man I can’t believe they’re actually making me sympathize with great hosts of all characters They’ve done such a good job with him. He was pacing back and forth at the boy He was worried his eyes were actually open when he asked for help his hands were shaking when he tried to pick up the blades Such a conflicted, man What hey you Rica foreign magic sweet name is Heather’s what are those I’ve never seen the life. That’s gotta be a family heirloom. No nor will it ever be Son my brother and me created me all near for the big idiot. I know from qualities and dim Dim special He wears a little turd He’s fallen ill know What happened? easier no We fault is mine And my responsibility to make it right We all gotta take responsibility Sometime, huh? Hey, what can I do to help I can do things When I say tag along no You’ll work here is enough alright So, where are you off to in such a hurry the realm of the Dead Helheim shit is just serious oh? My god, I keep in my iron He’s a different type of character now as well Brock can upgrade the blades of chaos to strengthen them Wait oh My god They’re here to stay y’all oh and even have upgrades for them combat stuff Jeez this is the best birthday oh Yeah need that let’s kill us no additional forces tonight. Oh I have it already ok Ok I get more fire if I keep attacking, but I can hit Nice aim and press or two oh, I don’t want that one or this Alright get it anyway Dude I am so giddy right now Can I actually change the grips and everything Oh Be sweet and still my beating heart took when I was his age I cut my head clean off, and I’m done the worst for where I’m what okay? I need a chaos flame to upgrade them And I buy chaos flame off you know Okay whatever I’m not here to upgrade or talk. I’m here to save my boys. That’s my boy Cedric he was dead Now that phrase given you the chapel ring to Helheim, it should be unlocked on the table I Should have known we’d end up going to hell at some point kratos always ends up in hell These ruins all end up looking the same ah let’s go destroy some bitches On hime Jotunheim Alpine Yeah, you’re stuck to tag along also I wonder if from a mere knows all about like Zeus and Athena and Kronos and Hades and all those guys He is a smart, man But I don’t know if he knows all about the Norse world or if he knows about all the worlds that he’s aware that other gods exist somewhere and Now that Norse gods and Greek gods exist in the same world I wonder how many other gods exist in the same world This game is outstanding. This is how you do a fucking video game, man So happy It’s also strange to think about Hell being in a different light like hell in most places is all fiery burning to death than hell, but to the Nordic people I Am to the Nordic people hell was frozen take this moment to tell you that what you are about Those blades what Damn Yes well Odin I’m also bare-chested Odin Isn’t made out of fiery rage like Kratos is Mr.. Brewster a smoker no we’re still in the realm travel bridge But after the bridge of the Damned the dead use it to cross into their permanent home the city of Helheim The bridge keeper who minds admission he’s the one we want just follow this bridge should lead us straight to him You know that’s one of the really things never to see this place again That was cool. How his voice change coming down the steps as well Let’s see what let’s see what this yeah, what’s up? Doesn’t do a lot of damage. Oh, we could charge it up That’s the old Kratos we know Some of the combos are different though, I’m trying to do some of the combos from last time, but they’re not their Rage please This stuff was all stuff. He used to do though that cane used to like throw blades and people and pull himself towards them That’s why I loved the blades because it was so much more acrobatic Than the axes use the fire of your blades to burn away that hell’s bramble blocking the path oh The blades were to burn the brambles Smarten Church, oh I get more attacks for it now Okay, that’s not an old move from the old game. Oh wait. What’s the map say? Weird all right Many reasons we went back for those blades see now it makes perfect sense but for these Now it makes perfect sense, but earlier on like I didn’t know the blades are gonna be in the game And you said nothing could burn through them That’s a cool move he kind of pulls the blades back in but they whip around everywhere and kill everything I Love this game And I think releasing this game now After so much time has passed people kind of forget what Kratos was like they forget. What his character was But they don’t forget, but it’s kind of not in people’s hands as much as it was originally So we get the blades back now creates this big like nostalgic. Hype trip He’s a soul’s The new lead age should be here There’s too many the gate must be closed, and if the gates closed then it’s true house full up Without the Valkyrie a certain Coulomb hell is overwhelmed All right, so if I free the Valkyrie and then come back here If I do all the Valkyrie ones and then come back here afterwards Would they all be? Disappearing this is a cool animation watch this Not not just the the spin, but watch how he kind of like like bounces afterwards He kind of like like he’s ready to go he’s ready to get into a new animation he’s ready to keep that momentum going That’s good animation work Sorry fellas coming through God of War I’m a big deal somewhere else Re-blocked know what the boat hold or Nice no there’s a bunch more areas I can open up when I go back There’s nothing down here for some reason why is this even here? Yeah, the basic attacks aren’t the same anymore, that’s gonna take some getting used to I Almost remember all the combos from the old game as well Lads Well something’s moving down there Bird oh hell yeah Like maybe this wait now I guess your fucking chain or you Go wait Wait for it there we go That’s kind of the same, but I can’t do there I can’t do there the base It used to be square square angle Nice so it’s kind of the same no no no I thought that was an item for some reason It’s so badass it feels so much fun It’s good to have you back police When we killed the Reavers near my home they came here How did they return so quickly? Time doesn’t move the same between all realms especially where the spirit world is can sound like the light of Alpine the opposite in fact The lake of souls feels faster than Alpine time, but hell is much slower than Midgard. Sorry. I’m sure that’s confusing if we will be back to my son of the sooner that is good ah Aren’t you a quick study? Like Inception rules Or interstellar actually Christopher Nolan likes a lot of his time slow down and speed up stuff doesn’t he? Bran please The bitchy I Don’t even that tough Now I knew that too yes That was the move you could do before where you would pull either you’re One of the games you pull the enemies towards you and then another one of the game is you pull yourself towards the enemies So it was always a case of like Kratos who never ever backed down He was a character that always pushed forward. I think in the old games. He never ever took a step backwards I Don’t know how true that is at least for the first three games. He never ever like physically walk backwards He always kept pushing forward because he was always like in the fight. He was always going forward at least not by his own Volition maybe something knocked him back or something It was always something noteworthy that he never took a step back What okay We have an attack now, that’s not nice actually fell quickly And with the super like jumpy finishing powerful moves, okay fuck this Come here get over here. He used to have a move that is it with inhale They’d go there the Warriors who die in glorious combat hell is for those who die in dishonor? criminals high and those dead of disease mishap age It was dishonorable $0.20 aids well never too late to go out fighting. I supposed Dishonorable to die of old age really That’s why I’m here But he used to have a Finishing move on or two or triangle where he would like spit turn around spin And then jump up in the air and slam his blades down. I don’t have that anymore That’s sad. I missed that was my favorite one That claim there could lead us out if we can reach it I know but I hear another bird Ah okay good at that ooh under the thing Okay, that’s the way forward I’m assuming this is just the way back I Just want to miss anything did something fall down while I came down here No, that’s cool Oh it did miss something look at you sneaky Family heirloom, that’s gonna get me a lot of cash actually at Brock shop All right moving on finally Thing is they the gatekeeper of help we’re killing the bridge keeper help the dead leave Midgard. I don’t expect it well No, I don’t suppose it will make things any worse either It’ll be one less obstacle for the living to reach the inner sanctum of Helheim Who’d be mad enough to go there? We’re going there aren’t we oh I don’t have my boy Wait can I come back here with a trace The bird Bird I miss my boy, that was the bird He’s up there somewhere I hear you, I just don’t see ya I Must be able to come back here with the boy, well I guess if you finish the game You can probably come back and go to all areas Kratos, it’s a pot the fact that you’re having difficulty with that really concerns me One of you guys can actually hear the birds in the video The bridge of the Damned and there’s the keeper making sure the dead I’m really dead What is that he holds that totem contains a powerful source of magical energy the very power of Helheim itself? Just take it we can leave Start some trouble you can do that right, that’s what I do best look at this thing that Is a giant bird that it’s just straight up a giant bird And it is awesome I was gonna get a fight, you know no mine these guys. This is just the same dude again it’s just a reskin version of the the other guys What’s disappointing? This game does a lot of that which is sad Whether the enemies are very very repetitive, and that’s not only is it disappointing in general But it’s disappointing for a god of war game because it was always known for its Very varied set of enemies, but whatever let’s just fight this guy Hey, I’m not dead They gate keeper how often do you actually have to do this? On average what you say per year how often do you think a living person comes through here? Also who do you work for oh whoa whoa? Okay, thank you. God those things explode Okay, not liking this guy wonder if I could fire those back in Yeah I’m actually kind of scary I Need more attacks Oh my god. Oh, no, I can’t he broke my guard. I thought I was getting ready to fire back He’s gonna take all day Why am I not hitting those Damnit We can still just use this for the attacks Okay, no literally does nothing to At least I blocked it, right What are you doing Oh hey, I’m gonna be cheeky and go this way Damnit stop running away you big, baby Oh great more of them I See and hear them They don’t oh, yeah, that was cool make me feel like a boy You’re very low set the pot to the kettle I’m trying to hit these things sometimes isn’t it them? Okay, okay, let’s play the Sun and dance Could it be rates time ow y’all I think it’s rich, man Nice oh, that’s the stuff I wanted I need it oh Yes wait wait you not dead Okay, I’m just going to go over to the sides because you don’t attack over here for some reason Oh, yes here we go Really the same animation again, Oh Nope not exactly Okay, I’ll forgive that one that was awesome No the heart brother, I’ll have to get your hands dirty ya think you can do that Kratos Hey big bird Blood Got it now eat it to gain its courage Kratos Spartan God father dr. I Also need a bath I have the heart I need dozen more you said I’m not a linger here Hurry to Seduce My father your father was this lie explains a lot Your what is that place never go there understand? Look that was Odin for a second, that is not possible. It’s just an illusion Tells no one for torturing its inhabitants carols and past we should focus on getting back to your son. Oh Buddy buddy I Fucked you up, didn’t I I’m just lying here. Dead I Want to go down to the edge though and see They told me not to cross the bridge I can’t even cross the bridge even if I wanted to Stupid Helheim, I’m gonna fight you who’s that oh? Look at all the people Heading into the inner sanctum of hell Damn well now it’s all tantalizing now. I want to do it That lock needs a gust of hell’s wind to open it oh Okay, I have the heart can I not just use that oh? Maybe but to figure out through the green things Yeah, Shh he’s supposed to be here It’s cold Real quick give me your blades. Why I said, I’d help you name – come on My quick mention midgar’s be right back Yeah, you don’t suppose. He make those to you Yeah Now they’re ready where the winds will help Just target this magical goalie figure with your blades and throw Winds of hell are very unstable and can only be held for 10 seconds before returning to the last wind trap Oh Wind trap with your blade Whatever again, please so you’re welcome, and I believe this place is cold enough to freeze a pair of pigeon eggs I sometimes wonder if there was once some sort of accident in his brain We have been away too long uh Okay that makes sense now I actually know how to do it ah I know I can uncover all the things the vines and the green things were the last things I had to figure out Lads has gone. Good chilly huh now great weather. We’re having Okay moving on Nice ooh Nightmares that Works That works real nice I’m gonna throw something at me now. Give me that face Sick Boom rayji boy see the bird from up here No Bullshit over there, okay, go moving on Yep where’s Cheston there how do I get that I have lots of questions? That’s cool, though cuz they the axe is the ability to like throw it at certain things like that so now I have an ability with the a puzzle traversal thing with the blades – Hell is that Ordered order Linder Yes us these guys disappearing Maybe I didn’t hear a bird, maybe I’m deaf actually that makes no sense didn’t definite mean I hear nothing Great it’s not in the thing anymore. Oh, it’s in this one my talk But it’s not gonna close Okay No wait I don’t even need it what am I talking about? Snotty brother, I’m still stuck in what I have back there This was your father not now we should focus on getting out of hell and with that I cannot argue Just contemplate that little nugget in silence there There’s a nice translucency layer on this ice I know a lot of people who care about this, but you can see that It’s actually like a layer of It’s like a transparent shader on the ice, and then you can see the ground underneath it Very nice. I like that a lot see this is the type of stuff that goes through my head when I’m playing games Doesn’t leave footprints are do I have a shadow is it wait. Do I have a shadow I have a shadow okay? Well, not a very nice shadow No wait, what are you just half and half? Kratos has impeccable aim is you go into baseball after this Okay, can I take some of this hell wind? Put it into this Nice okay friend Okay, are you are you holding our torii? Is’s sword. Oh god. He just fight Okay, okay He’s tough Whoa did you see that hit bucks? Oh?

What do you guys care? Wait what are we even doing with this where am I bringing it? Oh, hi guys. Oh, there was a thing in the inside of that wasn’t there where I hit the bird It just looks so cool the attacks that they pull off are so visually appealing Let her remember that’s the David Tapp he said about the first game anyway, but that’s what they kind of want it What does the thing in your back? Oh? I was just gonna run all the way down there Wait so we don’t get a fight giant bird, man Don’t read it up too forward to fighting giant bird, man Good idea wait your update oh Thanks Mamere alright, where’s the next up? I see it the next hidey hole Throw these pretty fair Don’t don’t even get me started on the physics of how these things don’t work all right I know they don’t they just awesome and that’s all you need to know You can use them as a weapon against the other guy Nice oh you have to bring it down there, don’t I oh you better have something worth it then after all this Am I actually gonna make this oh So close oh wait there’s another one. I got a done that I almost did Disappointed Almost missed that I only had a second left Because when he starts sprinting he slows down eventually although. I do have a thing that increases my sprint speed Reach it there for a second Behind door number chest, ooh The cyclone II chaos yes That was one of the moves. I was trying to do Yeah It’s this spin around II won in the old game You could just spin your blades around your head, and then you could just keep it going forever. I have it now Pray, I can’t upgrade anything yet – so I’ll just keep gaining XP Watch this shit Yeah, and then the further you upgrade is the more you can do it and it goes on forever Sweet cradles you’re a badass. You’re a dad ass and you got dad ass All right Brooke you made it better get home to your boy all right no No, no we go we go we got to do some shit Daddy grips of protection daddy grips magic Tenley recovery hand I like the draw called deadly something You all do specific little things better, but overall Yes, but they got a little thing on them they got a little shinier Yes please yes Please can you upgrade it again? I sure can watch me go 20 grand to upgrade it of you, there’s a lot I’ll grade it to max Nice one dawg Yeah berserkers record resurrection stone oh It gives you full rage and a small amount of health when you come back they might actually be better Cuz if I get a full rage Bearer and a small amount of health when I come back I just go into Spartan mode, and then I get a chunk of health back from that we shouldn’t delay brother It’s straight back to Midgard with that heart Here we go Finally understand I’m dangling from the hip of the bloody Ghost of Sparta Do not call me that don’t mistake me brother from what I have the Pantheon had it coming Still a bit to take in Gods, but you really can’t stay away from him Kenya. You must say nothing to the boy. He must never know Oh Respectful he has to know you’ll never be whole without the truth I Get it you hate the gods all Gods, it’s no accident. I include yourself, and it includes young boy He feels that Help what he? Can’t begin to help it because you haven’t even told him it’s all connected mine Tell him nothing Very well damn Make sense Kratos hates all gods for what they did to him Because he blames them for taking away his family, and then taking away his own soul even though It’s all a lot of it is his own fault But he hates all the gods And then he hates all gods in other realms as well because he doesn’t trust gods because he sees them for what they really are but your vainglorious egocentric shitheads so he hates himself which is obvious the first game starts off and you try to commit suicide and then he hates his boy because of it I Know I just recapped exactly what my mirror just said I’m just repeating it so it stays in my head Interesting You know that shortcut between realms well I made it better Or I might’ve boom we use that I know what you do So I took a few cuts from them winds of hell and made it so it ain’t just one way Now you can use it to travel to and from if I didn’t breaks it then we can take it to Freya There’s an idea nice So you were always able to take these out in the world back to Brock, but you couldn’t go anywhere else from them We don’t lose a leg and the in the meantime Well you gentlemen certainly know how to get around sure do Now you are you know us boys I mean boys Without my boy. You haven’t said it as much I feel sad I Don’t know why I’m sprinting here The the door literally shows up anywhere as as soon as the game is loaded because that’s what it’s also doing This area is a loading screen See just shows up wherever you’re loaded Well this isn’t right yeah, but close enough he did see there were kinks no story I came out right on top of it though ooh winds of hell Ok Kratos, I know you love your boy. We all do we all get a kick out of him. He’s great boy How about we figure out this puzzle I Don’t know where the the wind of hell starts actually and there’s an Odin door down there. There’s an old and orden blender Where was the hell for a Hellfire SiC that and this one go downstairs let me stick that yep. Yep. Yep yep Wait where is it? It’s there Well that’s not right oh I can’t go up with that the boy. Okay, whatever we have to do this then I’ll be back Don’t you worry about that Yeah, I’m back I did it real quick. I’m amazing real hard you have it yeah Wait what if she wants it for something else Back of your hand He’s too little I Can break the fever but to heal they must know the truth of 40 years? Yes It is not so simple Help me prop him up Did I tell you that I have a son, too It’s been Forever since I last saw him at his birth the runes foretold a needless death Babe and my arms were so small so helpless I knew right then I would do anything to protect him no matter the sacrifice of Course everything I did I did for myself I Let my needs my fears Come before what he needed and I couldn’t see his resentment until it was too late Don’t make the same mistake Have faith in him I know the truth isn’t simple, but nothing is when it involves your child It is a curse the boy has been cursed you break Don’t leave without me, I will not I’m better now I see that Is he well enough to travel For now They won’t happen again. I promise. you see that it does not Thanks free–free for helping Trey Trey for cray-cray Damn straight back into it huh the sickness prayer. I will not forget this Thanks Your father did the heavy lifting you should stay recover you have done enough You know my door is always open to you That’s been on isn’t it you figured that out Did you well the window looks like Bifrost crystal, and I know that’s no what’s on the other side of the wall well It makes you sad you are wise for one so young Yes, this is the window to a home. I left long ago, but it is only a few The thing that happened to you now fun you can’t leave Midgard King a gift from my former husband upon our separation I Would own and trap you in Midler petty cruelty would be reason enough for him? But as with all his rash decisions. He’s driven by fear the veneer for the greatest threat to the a seer until our marriage brokered peace Many of the van here now think I betrayed them the fruits of my sacrifice To be hated by my own kind To trap me here is to ensure I can never make it right The van here come from vanaheim and the Aesir come from Asgard Yay boy is back now, then before lordy so rudely interrupted us We were just about to explore tears vault yes to find a black room boy. Do you know the way from here? Oh? Sure you do lad we need to vote I guess we need to know okay then What’s up, boy? Why you look so sad tears are in your eyes, I can I just run with this Yeah, what am I talking about on the brambles are over there? Okay? Let’s do this boy Is he not gonna ask about the blades or anything Well nobody can’t claim him without him. I mean he wasn’t available Yeah, but you didn’t see what daddy had up his sleeves Maybe cuz I never showed you when I kept the colored bandages, but daddy’s got some webs. I Wonder Why put this in the middle can I jump and then jump Where are we even going with this? Up there okay, got it I Don’t know if that’s gonna be enough It is nice what you got for me, baby Yes rampage of the Furies a robust flurry attack that ends in a powerful slam So cool cyclone of chaos is still pretty good though. This one does more damage. Oh You have more skills now oh Wait There it is. That’s the combo I wanted I Still don’t understand what this means adds a series of cluster bomb concussions to the heavy combo finisher unfix burn damage requires runic Out here Increase this twice Nice Cyclone aquellas. There’s a lot of storm damage, but it just do a lot of regular damage it’s more to keep people at bay, and it’s an area attack I Don’t really want to use that right now Joe That’s awesome There’s a bunch of areas I can go back to now and figure out If I’m gonna go to tiers vault just yet Because it might oh, we can do this thing unless this is like another prison No, I didn’t even hit it, I gently pushed the book by accident There’s two What’s behind this door Hidden chamber of Odin Alright, what’s in here? Oh, it is I do want to do a Valkyrie They’re difficult they hired they saw Alright, I’ll figure out I want to go back to where Sindri was Yeah Sindri was in a location back near the start where his elevator was to go to the black breath I Want to head back there because it was a bunch of stuff that I can do with these back there Don’t know where that is though, and I also have a site quest that I can do Let’s go down to get the door the blue door The duo Doreen Linda, whatever Hi-yah nice man Each episode of this keeps getting crazier and crazier first we find a dragon then we kill some gods and Bring a giant Hammer down through some ice and see the big giant and frost and then we hit the blades of chaos again And we’ve been to hell I’m glad I made these episodes longer. It feels like we get a lot more done ok. Go that way yet boy oh? I feels good to say that I get boy boy boy boy boy boy boy boy see the boat washed ashore Someone did call us south of Kalia Yeah, but who? Get in I will pull You are quiet. Are you not better? Yes, I know you overheard my talk with Freya you think you understand that you do not Why do you say nothing He said I was cursed You think I’m weak because I’m not like you I Know I was never what you wanted, but after all this I thought Maybe things were different you’re weak cuz you’re exactly like him you do not know everything why? No But at least I know the truth now The truth I’m a god boy from another land far from here When I came to these shores I chose to live as a man, but the truth is I was born a god and so Boy have you nothing to say Haha And you turn to minimal what? No No, I do not think so Mother knew she was about to know she was mortal, but she knew my true nature Why did you wait so long to tell me I had hoped to spare you Hina God It can be a lifetime of anguish and tragedy That is the curse What sort of things can I do good Can I fly? Turn invisible. I do not know. I don’t feel like God I Do not know the rigsum of godhood but over time learn Damn you sure I can’t turn into a wolf Sometimes You sure you’ve never heard anything. How does you? Do? That’s no surprise? every God is unique so maybe I won’t get strong like father, but I’ll have abilities on my own no ready to muddy your Faculty for language is extraordinary for one so young Time alone will tell what else will become capable all But I’ve known more than my share of the ones you’ll inherit oh nice Do you know him from before the day of your mother’s funeral was the first I ever saw Balder that is the truth Go right back to tears of all Dewey. I mean we’re gone. We can do whatever we want right What do you really feel like doing right now? I will show you oh that’s clever I Will show you I will there’s no matter. What ends up happening.

So even if I throw the axe when I take these out compress triangle okay, I get it I Don’t know where this thing is though. I don’t know where this area is I got the moose behind rune didn’t I? Hey check out what that is Is that what that rune is yeah fire realm Well let’s look at what we know Balderas Auden’s finest tracker Bar None if he wants you you have to consider the possibility that Auden wants you and as for what Odin wants on this I have some expertise The a CLI His Reach is not unlimited and where he cannot reach. He is preoccupied no Clem. He certainly tortured me enough about it over the years Or fire realm, then we will go back and fight Chronos again Hey, what’s our dude? Wow it’s hot here but Is that snow ash It only Falls like that for great fires The whole realm is a great fire the source of fire itself and all the Sun and stars if legend is to be believed Should we believe I mean? We’re here On fire not yet well You know I suppose it’s cooled considerably since the dawn of creation hasn’t it Me for hime isn’t exactly ice these days either. It’s in the nature of things Extremes are tempered by time fires burn colder men grow old and gray Heads are chopped off and attached to belts such is life. Oh Yeah, I was gonna say that that lab of animation is not that nice, but I mean you don’t even see it most times so who cares Space is awesome looking This is where my Frost acts will shine, this is like the off the opposite of Helheim This like a whole area then what I can do shit in Sure enough missing stuff Well like that even red-hot fire its crimson fire There he is it’s a Brock Must be a fire John I the first and original Makes a flaming sword a weapon of legend He fights Thor and Odin, but is that the past or the future? Hmm that may be a matter of perspective Well I know you’re breakin my brain, I know this just telling me that I found her a shrine you middle or an Ancient fire giant of Muspelheim he forged the sword of fire and fought or will fight Thor and Odin See this is the thing I was talking about. I don’t know if it’s past present or future Listen let’s go exploring boy another elf. I don’t think it’s coming from up there Waiter was just coming out of nothing The voice it’s just around this corner Oh Sore it’s a great big sword it wants to know for ready to train What also I love that the lighting changes and when the lighting changes the shaders and crate hoses head change and his skin Very nice ready to Train Moves behind trials oh it’s a trial area complete the dress our luck the next arena press X to accept the challenge I’ll accept challenge You can Prepare yourself boy yes, sir Did you steal me enemy’s remaining 15 have time okay? Damn those flowers disease Here we go here we go boy. I’m guessing these are gonna get harder as more of them. I killed I’m so glad he’s way stronger now. He’s way more useful and his arrows recharged pretty quick Yeah, I See him Okay, we’re leave two minutes to kick fulfill six enemies Have you pulled off my big magics yet, Oh Damn Wouldn’t it be nice to find some incense. Just once the smell of brimstone gets old quickly It’s a nasty smell isn’t it smell like farts uh? Here’s where I get some smoldering embers and stuff. It’s all making sense swords back The gate didn’t open But Okay be ready boy. I am kill twenty enemies in three minutes Enemies will resurrect if other enemies are still alive due to the wave to events oh So it’s a kill them all at the exact same time Okay my bad. I killed him by accident We’ve complete what Now we’ve got a tough one Okay, I’m talking oh, I have to kill a witch as well And it’s gonna be pink yeah Because I can get weak enough Yes, yes unless she takes you to finish this With complete yeah a lot of people ask where it or do the or three attacks a lot of time with wall They usually don’t do print much Leaves II don’t grant much else other than killing the enemies normally Okay, and they always take longer to do so that’s why I don’t bother. I’m waiting for my attack to power up The others I have Okay nevermind I didn’t even need it Let’s phone, that’s a good way of getting used to the combat actually you can kind of just practice and train here Wanna get Smoldering embers and hacks silver, and you couldn’t have been a another no it opened and you couldn’t have been a whole new area to explore like Alfheim and Helheim and those kinds of places so it makes sense that it’s just like a trial location Yeah, okay, I’m gonna leave this episode here Then III might go off and do some of these in my own time or I might I don’t know I don’t want to bog down the videos with just Repetitiveness and these kinds of things I’m trying to balance out side quests with story stuff So we’re still moving forward with still also exploring the game Really really fun so far. I’m so glad to have my lady boys back They are so badass Camp leaves are actually in the game. I’m shocked anyway. Thank you guys so much for watching this boy If you liked it punch that like button in its boy! LIKE A BOSS! And High Five all-round!!! (Whoopsh 2x) Fish thank you boys, and they were sailor boys IN THE NEXT VIDEO!!! (Outros- I’m Everywhere By Teknoaxe) Draya’s you haven’t asked much about my blades yet pretty cool right don’t tell me to where to go

    PAPA JAKE HAS BEEN CAPTURED!! He Won’t Escape The Hacker

    October 19, 2019


    hey yo what’s going on guys it’s Papa
    Jake here and as you know we are currently on the run from what we
    believe are either hackers spies or potentially worse we were able to make
    it back to our house after the last video we had to escape the haunted woods
    at 3 a.m. we used camera setup in those woods to track the movements of these
    creepers and were able to escape just in time we’re now back home but we are
    still on the run from them we don’t know who they are or what they want but guys
    get this we were able to find one of their iPhones that’s right this fell out
    of one of their pockets after they tripped and we’re gonna be using this
    today to hack into it and try and get some more information on who is
    following us as of right now all we know is that they’re coming after youtubers
    and they have a list of youtubers including me
    the sheriff family Chad wild play and a bunch of other youtubers we don’t know
    why they want us and we don’t know how dangerous these guys are right now I’m
    feeling pretty safe as you can see we’re back home after spending the last almost
    week in the woods it’s nice to be back here but look and I was just pulling
    them in on everything we’re still definitely not out of the clear no these
    cats could be anywhere I think our first priority today is gonna be hacking into
    this phone and figure out as much information as we can on these guys
    anything we can get from them it’s gonna be extremely important but guys one of
    the most important things is all of your support through this you guys have been
    amazing all these comments all of your likes sharing the videos getting the
    word out there and most importantly alerting other youtubers of the
    information we’re finding we’re putting together a case using all of your guys
    information and you’re helping us solve this mystery together so yeah guys as of
    right now there’s a few different theories but it goes from anywhere to
    this being the government to being someone trying to get rid of YouTube
    vloggers which is why they haven’t been attacking gamers I mean all the way to
    this being some sort of evil corporation trying to stop youtubers as you can see
    everyone’s helping out but we need your help as well wait guys I think I hear
    something downstairs I heard that too this house is so big
    there’s no way we’re gonna cover every entrance check the back check back something there look gia that it’s a
    security alarm one of the doors is opening let’s read
    answers quickly great if you think we’ve gone in the basement it’s the only door
    we didn’t check it’s closed to be in any Spock’s words there’s no way we’re gonna
    check all of this yeah check in here no the windows are open Shh you guys have
    to get here something in the front window come on Logan come on this way
    oh this isn’t good guys you seen this one in the window
    Lupe’s right there is the door I saw behind the door it’s one behind the door
    look he’s right there he’s right there guys this isn’t good when you hacked
    into this phone and figure it out they must know we have their phone that’s why
    they’re coming after us at our house look and what are we gonna do we have to
    get out of here man they’re literally surrounding the house get out of here we
    have to go down all right guys I’m ideal let’s grab my
    car and head out the garage because it’s Cape with the car and find a place to
    hack into this phone I’ve got my keys on me let’s go let’s go head to the cross
    come on guys we got to go we gotta get out of here and find a place where we
    can hack into this phone Hey look and get in get in
    look at this one coming get it get it get it really quickly let’s go let’s go
    let’s go she’s coming he’s coming
    get this out of you man we’re getting out of here all right let’s get out of
    here Logan we gotta get out of here and fast Jake where are we gonna go
    all right have an idea guys if we’re gonna hide out somewhere I think we can
    go to our old fort if you guys remember our previous box for video we made an
    awesome fallout shelter I think we head back there there’s no way we’ll find us
    there it’s a little bit of a drive but once we get there we should be able to
    get inside and use it as a base of operations the definitely be on our
    trail to Logan hi I’ve got an idea I’m gonna put the car in launch control and
    send this out it’s just really fast once we’re around the corner
    I’ll put it into electric mode and we’ll cruise around that way they won’t be
    able to hear us and we’ll be able to escape back to the fort
    once we’re there we can hack into the phone all right putting in wash control
    all right ready guys cheek that was so fast all right we got
    around the corner quickly by putting into electric mode now there’s no way
    they can be able to hear us hi this is perfect let’s head back to
    the Ford and a key to this phone shouldn’t be too far of a drive but
    we’ll keep an eye out and see if they’re following us
    come on guys – should be out this way oh wow guys the fort what is Roy I don’t
    think I’ve ever seen this happen to a box store this thing has been rushed
    supposed to been from all the storms we had lately guys wow the entire canopy
    that we had above it securing it from the water just fell on it well this this
    part of the floor it still looks good yeah the back looks like it’s an
    operation oh yeah do the lights are still on
    I should be able to pull off the back door here seems perfect for us to hide
    out and there’s no way they’re gonna look here so who’s going first in case there’s
    raccoons all right looks like Logan’s gonna go first hopefully there’s no
    animals in here let me get it set up whoa god this is crazy the whole four
    days like collapse dude check this out
    you can literally see like the line where the fort just collapsed this is
    raisi I mean at least we did a really good job
    on this side this part held up very well but yeah it looks like we’re not getting
    any farther than that way is there even a way through that look no this is this
    is a dead end to the fort all right well we can use the second story of the four
    to set up shop and hack into the cycle okay guys let’s do this and see we can
    find on this phone I’m gonna plug it in here there we go and see if we can hack
    into it first things first if we can get past the phone’s password hi hold on you
    in it Jake are you sure we’re even safe here
    they were just on our tail I mean it’s the least likely place for them to look
    we’d see enough time to get in your figure out what’s going on okay hold on
    a monster just around the program here basically brute-forcing the password
    dude I got it we’re in all perfect okay here we go downloading the data see what we have no
    although again what looks like they remotely cleared the phone they like the
    phone you try to remove all the data from it no no no no no mostly
    everything’s missing hold on cheek what does that mean I’m easily deleted
    everything off the phone once they knew we had it I’m gonna try and run a
    recovery software see what I can get from it
    look and check this out what is it look it’s some sort of map that they have on
    here so must be how they’re tracking us youtubers check out
    hold on I’m pulling some other stuff the recovery software is gonna try and pull
    everything off of this phone and put it into one folder so we can look what was
    on it and should be almost done I’ve got
    access to the files in the iPhone whoa guys it’s a text message someone owns
    the leader he says is the job done person’s phone that we took says yes
    well Papa Jake has escaped but we are tracking him guys it’s definitely make
    sense this is from the tracker this is who was tracking us your replies find
    him and what about the other sets that must be the other youtubers the other
    youtubers are slowly being captured soon our plan will be complete
    like great one nice is go forth Logan whoever this phone is texting they have
    a leader it doesn’t mean that these people are random there there’s some
    sort of organization I mean this could be an organization a spy to be an
    organization of hackers beep we just don’t know pray let’s see what else we
    got on here that’s the sharers house they have a satellite image of the
    Sherry’s house Logan guys this isn’t good they’re slowly using some some way
    to track it I don’t know what it could be
    however they’re doing it they’re tracking us and they have imagery of
    Carters house oh no this isn’t good this is good let’s do it officers dude what
    is this that it’s like a compound of some sort looks almost like a prison
    looks like it’s in the mists being built it’s just a wider view of the shop Oh
    what bad dude I have no idea it’s like graffiti or something yeah
    this is weird guys let me know in the comments if you have any idea what that
    could be all right looks like there’s two more
    files on here it’s a smaller weight Jake that’s the
    school that’s the Chad was in guys this means that that we are correct this this
    means that this is linked to Chad wild clay
    this means that whoever is doing this they’re all linked together maybe you
    can help us to KO some the information here maybe you can use what you’ve seen
    here to give us some more information : there’s one more file here let me bring
    it up seems like it’s a video Gus I know what this is from I can hear Carter
    share is voicing this look and you were there this is from Carter shares fourth
    of July party guys that means whoever this phone belonged to was that Carter
    share his house on the fourth of July that means that this could be narrowed
    down to as small as 50 to 60 people more importantly guys Carter’s in trouble I
    need to call him right now I’m gonna grab my phone call Carter Carter is that
    you can you hear me guys I need to warn you okay I don’t know if you know what’s
    going on right now but there is someone after us they’ve been tracking us down I
    don’t know if they’re hackers or spies or something were some sort of
    organization but we’ve already had multiple men show up at our house
    there’s been someone tracking us even so far as the forest I’ve been on the run
    for the pain I don’t know I don’t know how dangerous they are but I don’t know
    right now guys we’re hiding out in a box port but there’s something I need to
    tell you something extremely important you need to know about them you can’t
    trust anyone not even any of the other youtubers you can’t trust anyone
    Carter we found a video on the phone we can what I think someone’s here what if
    would it what do you mean we’re gonna just cut up the screen smoking look
    what’s going on it’s getting smoking when you smoke coming from is there fire
    near everyone ladies Ygritte there whoa whoa yeah watch out watch out thirty
    thirty we gotta go we gotta go now guys if you see this tell Carter share what
    we know give him the infrared Logan what is that
    there’s a crow we’re gonna cool abort okay

    How to Remove Old Bottom Paint the EASY WAY? Heat gun? Sanding? Sandblasting? Patrick Childress #40

    October 19, 2019


    today we reconnect the head stay strip
    all bottom paint and what power tools we use well as you can see Patrick’s been doing
    a ton of work to the bottom of the boat more than we ever expected to do but
    it’s all for good reasons so um because we’re getting ready to
    cross the Atlantic Ocean and go to Uruguay and not sure I want to go much
    more south than that because it sounds awful cold I mean I have my requirements
    I offered her a water bottle she’s very sensitive to the cold that wasn’t very well received and
    he says how about we just cuddle underneath the blankets all the time
    every day anyway Rebecca is actually been researching a lot of heating system
    propane diesel you name it so we’ll see what we eventually can wind up with but
    in the meantime I’ve been getting all the paint off the bottom of this boat in
    preparation for new bottom paint so let’s get started I’ll show you what
    we’ve been doing normally if we are going to be hauled out for a week or two
    and I had to disconnect the head and inner forstay to fit on the travel
    lift I would just let them hang off to the side and rely on the spinnaker
    halyard and the running pole topping lift to help hold the mast in place but since
    we’re going to be here for months and months we really don’t know how long I
    want it to put the headstay back in place by putting the head stay back into
    its chain plate and going to the back Stay turnbuckle first I pull the two
    cotter pins and then unscrew the barrel of the turnbuckle just as far as it will
    go without losing the back stay I want to keep some threads inside of that
    barrel but that’ll make it as loose as possible so the mast will go forward
    bend forward fairly easily so I have the spinnaker halyard fastened at the front
    of the boat and cranked down tight and the running pole topping lift is also very
    tight against its bridle which is fastened to the bases of two lifeline
    stanchions all of this to help pull the mast forward just as much as possible so
    that we can set the clevis pin back into the chainplate and then I have a block
    and tackle setup here to the Anchor keeper pulling everything
    forward and down to get that sag out of the head stay and now I have
    it almost aligned it’s got to come down on the block and tackle just a little
    more another half inch first I ease the tension off of the jib halyard then
    tightened down a little bit more on the block and tackle and that gave me just
    the alignment I needed to slip the clevis pin in place and put the cotter
    pin back in its hold to hold everything securely while we’re hauled out and for
    the next several months the staysail will just hang off to the side out of
    the way till we get back into the water there are a lot of projects to be
    completed on this boat over the next several months but the two most major
    projects is to prepare the bottom for the application of Coppercoat, a very
    special antifouling product but that means I need to remove all the old
    antifouling and completely prepare the hull very especially for that
    application and at the same time I’ll be digging into all of these resin blisters
    above and below the waterline and treating those and making everything
    nice solid and secure for future travels across the Atlantic and and we’ll see
    how far south we get but the first major problem is to get rid of all that
    antifouling paint I really wanted to have the boat sandblasted quick and easy
    but sandblasting operations here had made such a tremendous mess of all the
    surrounding boats that they don’t allow sandblasting of boats anymore so I had
    visions of hand scraping with large two-handed scrapers like Brian Rolfe did
    on his 27 foot boat Tarka the adventurers of Tarka a very fun youtube
    channel although those scrapers are available anywhere in the US and just
    about anywhere throughout the Caribbean the largest scraper I could find in
    South Africa was this triangular scraper it just would not do so we had to check
    into other alternatives other methods we tried this
    but this paint is just far too soft it would just plug up 36 grit sandpaper
    instantly and so sanding was not an option to remove the bottom paint so we
    went out and bought two electric paint strippers warning warning using a heat
    gun to remove the bottom paint is Questionable and you should do research
    yourself if this is the best method to remove antifouling paint from your
    sailboat damage to underlying gel coat is a major concern especially with the
    heatgun in the wrong hands due to the area being overheated the substrate
    below may also be affected there are also carcinogenic fumes that are created
    when bottom paint is heated so removing it on a windy day is best
    removal with the lowest possible heat setting is preferable
    these are heaters high temperature heaters that will melt the paint and you
    follow right behind with scrapers and just scrape the adult and paint off of
    the boat a very time-consuming but it was a good thorough method to get most
    of it off this would take at least two weeks of continuous work for two and
    sometimes three men operating the powerful tools so it starts out slow but
    with a little practice each person gets their own routine their own method their
    own way of doing it and they just keep at it all day and on this one all those white spots in
    the off-white spot those are digs there it’s gone a little too deep but it’s
    unavoidable no matter how much practice you have so once all four or five layers
    antifouling paint is off we’ll go back and sand this we won’t have to smoothen
    out all of those digs that is not into gel coat this boat doesn’t have gel coat
    that’s an epoxy layer but these guns are so hot it’s possible to melt your way
    right through the whole boat if you’re not careful so after all the antifouling
    paint all the different layers that was removed from the bottom of this boat I
    took a closer look at the remaining red layer of paint what bits of it there was
    and I could see that there was repairs and patches to the boat this fairing
    compound had been placed over that red and as an experiment I took a rag of
    acetone and wiped the red paint and much to my surprise it came off in the rag
    that is not a good sign if this was any kind of a substantial barrier coat it
    shouldn’t be coming off with acetone so this is a major complication I’m going
    to be putting all kinds of epoxy fillers and epoxy barrier coat back over this
    entire hull so I need a good substrate like this white area that I really
    cleaned up and this means we have to go back and grind everything and get all of
    the red off and down to just the white Epoxy barrier coat
    Sip was just an amazing man he could run that 7 inch grinder overhead all day
    and hardly ever take a break and at the end of the day he still wouldn’t be
    tired so Sip and I both got in here with that 7 inch grinder and spent two days
    just grinding away with 36 grit paper to remove the rest of that red paint and
    then we’d go over the whole thing with a random orbit sander and 40 grit paper
    and that would smoothen everything out get it down to a nice white consistency
    and I think then ready for any other touch-ups in the way of filling up the
    ding and gouges which there weren’t many by
    the time we finished sanded with the 40 grit paper why they’re such a massive
    epoxy barrier coat on this hull is that about 18 years ago the entire hull from
    the waterline down was peeled and re- Fuberglassed that was a process to take care
    of some of the hull blisters at that time but obviously some of them have
    reappeared and that’s what I’m dealing with on this haul out these are most of
    the power tools that we have used while doing the bottom work on this boat all
    the sanding and it’s smoothing out of things but it all starts with this
    transformer the change is 110 to 240 in these four countries it can be anywhere
    in the range of 220 to 240 volts or from 240 to 110 any international boat really
    has to sail with this tool if you bring American tools with you or if you’re a
    foreigner like an Australian going to America and you intend to do any work so
    if your home bought tools don’t match the local AC current this will
    straighten it out for you so anytime we go into a new region with AC 240 current
    I have to change plugs this is a plug from Southeast Asia now
    we’re in South Africa so I changed the plug over so I can plug into their
    outlet here there’s a switch on the back I can go from 240 to 110 and I can plug
    in my american-made power tools here on this side I take over 220 volts aside so
    that I and anybody else who helps will not be plugging the power tool my 110
    power tool into the 220 by mistake and it just makes it run twice as fast and
    you can’t slow the darn thing down it hasn’t burned it out but we have only
    made that mistake for very short periods of time if you plug anything electronic
    like a battery charger a 110 battery charger into the 240 side ZAPPO.. you’ll
    hear it pop and that Chargers will be no good anymore blows out the circuit
    right away move over to the porter-cable the seven-inch disc size porter-cable i
    bought this back in when was that 1987 and did a lot of grinding on houses prep
    rate prepping them for painting and it’s still good
    several years ago about five years ago when were hauled out in kudat on the
    very north end of the island of Borneo a bearing gave out inside here and I
    thought the machine was dead but Rebecca went down to a local tiny little
    hardware store they had the bearing that goes inside and the same day I had it
    functioning again so a lot of these tools you think they’re dead because the
    berries burn out or the brushes burn out you might smell them burning electrical
    fire and they stopped working simple replacement of the parts get them
    going again I like this tool it normally comes with
    a handle I don’t know what happened to it we never really used that side handle
    anyway we just hang on to it like this but there’s a backing plate here paper sometimes it isn’t stiff enough I’ll put
    on two pieces of sandpaper and really make it stiff for the type of grinding
    that I want to do normally you only use the outer 1/3 of the disc you don’t hold
    this flat against the surface just the outer 1/3 and you don’t really want to
    use just the outer tip either it’s a waste of paper then there are times when
    I really need a flexible piece of paper on here to get into grooves and I’ll
    just put the paper without this backing plate onto this little backing rubber
    pad here and that way this disc can really fold into places and get a nice
    curved surface where we need it very versatile in Porter cable made in America
    out of other countries they’ve never heard of that brand this is something I
    bought in 1987 also a rant porter-cable random orbit sander it’s done a tremendous
    amount of work over the past 12 years on the bottom of this boat and these Velcro discs that go on the front here… this is a six inch disc so it’s very very efficient in just
    the other week after all these decades of use like I say 1987 I bought this
    thing the bearing went out inside here and then there again I thought being
    american-made here we are halfway around the world the local repair shop had the
    bearing to fix it with a lot of these parts internal parts are universal so as
    soon as I drop this off at the shop to be fixed I went out and bought this one
    because we had to keep working yeah this is the bosch 6-inch random orbit sander
    it is 220 volt and the guys who have been working on this boat they seem to
    like this one better than the porter-cable it’s a little faster a
    little more aggressive in the way it sands and it also has a dust collection
    on the back but we never use that of course we don’t have a good vacuum to
    set it up but that possibility is there where the Porter Cable doesn’t have a
    dust collection system all these tools we carry on the boat it all stuffed away
    somewhere this palm sander is great for getting into tight places it’s good for
    paint prep especially on wood work this is a gen tools I never heard of gen
    tools I bought it used up in Kudat when we were hauled out and I’m very
    surprised I mean the price of of it it certainly cheap on it and I’m surprised
    it’s still working after all this time this angle grinder is almost as old as
    the other two discs Sanders and I started out using this with a masonry disc
    just to kind of dig into some of these bubbles and and blisters but being such
    a stiff disc it’s hard for me to get a nice contour I would have to go back and
    sand it with a random orbit sander or something else to help smooth and out
    and round out the contour… a smoother less aggressive disc would certainly do
    a better job when we decided that we had to heat strip the four or five layers of
    antifouling off of this boat I just went out and bought the cheapest heat
    guns because it was going to be a one job use it seemed like all the heat
    settings amongst the brands were really the same so I just went with price and
    it lasted through the job I have no more use for them now they’ve paid for
    themselves I feel this is 220 of course since I bought it locally here in South
    Africa uses their two prong South African plugs which is strange because
    you can’t plug this in to a wall outlet you have to use this kind of a plug so
    it takes an adaptor plug this into here and now I can plug it into the extension
    cord or a wall outlet my 110 deWalt boy this is an oldie too but I used this for
    putting in a wire wheel for cleaning up bronze fittings through holes also the
    prop strut in the English steel rudder shaft but it’s also good for using these
    little links the drum Sanders put these in here and I can get a nice contour in
    different areas then there’s different sizes I got these actually had a shop
    that sells a dremel tools the good variety of tools is what you
    need for doing this kind of work like I say these tools go with this everywhere
    and they’ve all more than paid for themselves . So Sip, who’s the best person
    you ever worked with? Who me? yeah. Well you! me? yeah! No…. why is that? because
    your good boss , good pay! yeah? yeah! I might have to give you a raise next year!! Oh that would be good…Id thank you for that! That would be good! of course we just reversed that . Yeah you the good boss! WELL, if you ever come to Richards Bay you need a good help, come talk to Sip!
    that’sit…yeah don’t forget miss miss Rebecca inside here! next time we find
    that for decades there has been something quite missing from our keel
    and we’ll see what other projects we have made major advances on also up in
    the video description there is a link to a tip jar if you don’t mind helping out
    thank you very much and we’ll see you next time

    Did I Keep My Hand When It Ripped Off? // Amputee Q&A

    October 19, 2019


    I hate that you guys always ask me this. Did I keep my hand? So in the actual moment of my hand ripping off obviously I was like bleeding out crazily to be willing to find the light though You have to be willing to believe in yourself and to believe in your story and to believe that there’s more that we’re going through And that what you’re going through is going to bring you Further into who you’re supposed to be and your calling and find the good in it Awesome fun we’re sitting down with this Hey guys, welcome back to my channel if it’s your first time here My name is Kristie Sita and I post videos every Friday So make sure you guys subscribe and give this video a big thumbs up today. I am doing the video Finally and I am answering all of your guys’s questions about my accident I think eyes know if you’re not new here I was in a boating accident five years ago, and that’s when I lost my left hand No surprise there So if you guys are new make sure you guys go watch this playlist up here and it will let you know and fill you In on all of the other details about that day and about the accident and after it but today Specifically I had so many questions from you guys posted from my Instagram story and as well as my YouTube community post I’m so there were all such amazing questions and I’m actually going to be splitting it into three Different videos over the next couple weeks as you saw from the title. This one today is going to be all about Questions that you guys have on the day of the accident So not what my life was like after not how it affected my faith or how it affected my life, but just details on that Day the day the big day So, yeah, let’s just get right into this video, and I’m excited to answer some of you guys questions And I hope this brings you more clarity on that day. Remember? Disclaimer this was five years ago. I was in a lot of shock. It was very traumatic day. I don’t remember all the details Okay, I’m sorry, but I don’t and so I’m just gonna fill you guys in on as much as I know. Let’s get into it so one of my most asked questions is why couldn’t they reattach my hand and the answer to that one is they could have So with that I believe I’ve explained this before but there was a couple options what could have happened if they did reattach my hand a I could it could have been paralyzed So it would have just been like a doll Hand that I had no control over so it could have been paralyzed It could have been in so much pain that I have to get it re amputated Which means I have to go back into surgery they’d literally have to chop off my hand again and give it to me straight as an amputee or It could have been just fine. So there wasn’t Possibility that I could have gone into rehab and I could have had a fully functioning hand That would be really weird that was an object I don’t know why they didn’t try but however, I’m guessing it was because on my way to the hospital I was telling them all about how I wanted to be a professional dancer and life dreams and blah blah blah they’re like, well, let’s just call her at dunzo and Hopefully that what they were best, so that’s why they did and for a reference. I’m happy that they did it So these are their two questions that are kind of tied in together if I could go back what I do anything Different or do I wish that it didn’t happen. There’s a lot of different outcomes that could have happened on this day I could have not cared about the rope and I would stop two hands Nevertheless to say I know that’s the right word. I would not change anything that happened on that day I would not change anything I mean Obviously it was a very traumatic day and my life was never the same after but I am so thankful for all the hardship and all the process and all Everything that I went through after the accident because ultimately I would not be Who I am today I would not be doing what I am today if it wasn’t for this day and it changed my life for the better For every single day for it, although it was not easy I would not change anything because I wouldn’t be me and this is such a huge part of me and to know I wouldn’t change anything I think that this was just the beginning of my life on this day and I do believe that I am on the path that God is calling me to go on and I’m reaching the people That I’m supposed to be reaching and I’m doing the things I’m supposed to be doing and then none of that would have happened without This accident, so it was a blessing to me Did I feel any pain or what did it feel like so in the actual initial moment of my hand ripping off? I did not feel anything at all I was in such shock that my body just completely shut down in terms of signaling it to my brain And I was really calm for the most part I wasn’t in pain, although obviously I was like bleeding out crazily, but I didn’t feel anything I was definitely just in this state of survival at that point the first thing that came to my mind When I saw my invitation or when I saw my new hand, I’m sure Obviously that was a lot of emotions that kind of happened at once but I do remember like one of my most Specific things that I realized in that moment is that I don’t have a wedding finger and so Obviously your wedding finger is this one on your left hand and I don’t have that so that was probably one of the hardest things to dry digest I think but then My family was really encouraging of just letting me know that the right man will know exactly what to do Despite my lack of wedding finger was that anxious or nervous first surgery? No, I was honestly so an event at this point I had no idea which was really going on I just know that I was waiting to get into an emergency surgery I was on all types of painkillers all types of medication. Everything was numb. I did not feel anything I was posting pictures on snapchat saying that I was high and on drugs and that my arm ripped off So I was not anxious No one thing that really did calm me down and just bring me a lot of peace is when as soon as I got into the Surgery room. I did look at every single surgeon and I just told them that I knew God had a plan for me and That was my state of mind at that point with so no, I wasn’t anxious. What was the main emotion? I felt when it happened and so I’m gonna take this question as if it was literally like when it happened And they listed sadness confusion shock Which was it? and I was so shocked like I just remember Feeling like it was a dream like I got back into the boat after being in the water and I remember driving through got lunch Being like no, this is real. This isn’t real. Like I was totally fine two seconds ago This can’t be real this can’t be real this can’t be happening like love My life was totally different five seconds before and now like this is just not realistic tonight risks a nightmare obviously that was the reality and then tagging off that question is how long till I realized what was actually happening and I think for me I think I always knew kind of which was going on as soon as we did hit that boat lunch and my confusion Minute was over and I realized this was real it wasn’t a nightmare that this was happening. And this was real I think I definitely just typed tapped into a like survival mode that I Just was doing everything that I could to survive and be positive at that point because it was That kind of fight in those moments And so I just remember as soon as I got to the boat lunch and they were asking me questions I was waiting for the ambulance. I was getting a helicopter to the hospital It was all very real to me and I knew what was going on, but I don’t think I was necessarily very afraid How did my family find out about the accident? So about this is actually after had gotten in the ambulance And then also the people at the boat lunch were actually family friends of my parents that had known them for a long time but initially my dad found out because I had gotten on the Amalie and said I was going to the helicopter pad where the helicopter I’d be helicoptered from the Sunshine Coast to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and actually asked to call my dad and So I called my dad and it was just telling him that I loved him and there was no alcohol Involved because it was like a lake that a lot of young people go to So I just wanted him to know that it wasn’t Driven by that and that I was a Keun that I loved him and that I would see him soon So that’s how my dad found out and then I’m assuming from there My dad talked to my mom and they’re on the next ferry over to the hospital because they couldn’t get helicoptered. Obviously So they had to wait at the ferry terminal To get on to take the ferry to come see me at the hospital not knowing really what was going on or what happened So that was how my parents found out. So these last two questions are a little bit More as if like what my life was like after amputation, but I thought I could include them anyways Because they are really close to everything that we’ve been talking about So the first few days after my invitation was I upset or optimistic? I was definitely optimistic at this point I think the hardest part in that whole journey and that whole part of it was seeing how devastated my family was and obviously all the fear that they would have of what my life was going to look like because None of us really knew at that point So I was just determined to be really strong for my full family and everybody in the room And so that was my fight back reaction was just there’s no question. I’m gonna be okay I have to keep going this is just you know We’re gonna work through it and that was my mindset from the very beginning And so I would definitely say I was way more optimistic than upset in those first couple days Lastly to end this little question and answer. What does it feel like to think about that day triggering scary? Story. Oh, I think now looking back five years later. It is very surreal And it feels like I never really lived through that but it also feels like like it feels like it just happened But it also feels like I’ve never not had one hand I just become really thankful for my life and thankful for my family and Everything that’s taken for me to get through these past couple years and for me like I’ve said in the earlier question I just believed that like that was fully the day that my life really began and It’s just more of a celebration In my eyes, it’s not a sad day. It’s a day. I definitely want to be with family It’s a day I want to talk about the goodness of life and God and how far that we Both myself and my family since that day So definitely saying not turning at all still very surreal but very much filled with joy and filled with peace and I Really just a day of celebration and that’s totally how I look back on that day now because it has just shaped me in Every way possible and I would not be talking to you guys. I would not be in front of this camera I would not be on YouTube probably if it wasn’t for that day, and if I would be then I wouldn’t have this message and this message is my whole purpose so that’s that and That kind of concludes the first part of this Q&A. So that’s all the questions about that day Oh also one last one I hate that you guys always ask me this But you always do and I don’t know why but did I keep my hand or why didn’t I keep my head? No, you crazy people. I did not keep my head. Why would I want to keep my hand? I would not want my hand in a jar like some of you guys are saying I don’t know what they did with it They put it in words hospitals put limbs and bodies and dead stuff. That’s where it went So no more questions about that. I did not keep my hand That’s all and so make sure you guys tune in in my next Q&A video. I will be talking more about my neck So it’ll be life after my amputation You guys have tons of really really really really good questions that I want to be able to expand on that are coming in that So stay tuned Make sure you give this video a big thumbs up share it with a friend if they need some inspiration or you can just share that playlist of my amputation and it’s got tons of goods in there to help somebody that might be going through something just see a more positive side of what they’re going through and Yeah, whatever you guys are facing right now.
