    MIT’s Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta

    November 16, 2019

    The Head of the Zesiger is a cardboard boat regatta in which three students put together a boat. They can actually have as many boat builders as they like, but they need to be in the cardboard boat, paddling during the actual competition. The real challenge each year is the fact that the race course changes so there are different challenges. And so, when designing the boats there’s a different theme and focus in mind. I was terrified on Thursday because we were like only halfway through, a bit more really, but we didn’t yet have the hull so that was a bit of an issue. But we got a lot of people to help the last two days so we able to finish it and paint it, and, well, we’re going to win. My freshman year was the first year I competed and my brother, he went to MIT as well, he’s two years ahead of me so when I got here as a freshman my brother Brian was like, “Oh man, there’s this cardboard boat race and I’ve always wanted to do it but I could never get a team together.” I’m a mechanical engineering so it sounded like a really good challenge mostly because everything you do you have to innovate. There isn’t any set way to do this sort of thing. It’s not like, you know, everybody that builds a Formula 1 ® car, well people build Formula 1® cars and there’s a way to do it, so you do it. But a cardboard boat you have to completely come up with how it’s going to work on the stop, every time. The difference between most cardboard boat regattas is the students actually design it ahead of time. They don’t design it day of. Most schools that offer this type of competition will give the supplies and they have one hour to put some duct tape together, use some styrofoam and different formats. This is purely based on cardboard, paper tape and paint, that’s it. They’re not allowed to use duct tape. They’re not allowed to use styrofoam or anything that has natural buoyancy to it. So we went into this with a little bit more of a challenge then you’ll see at most schools. I think MIT students just like to problem solve things and this is a really good opportunity to try it out. Some people have tried it, maybe in High School or something, but MIT really takes almost everything to the next level when we do this sort of thing. A good fraction of the students are young students, in the first couple of years. Maybe some who haven’t declared. Others are graduate students so they’re pretty far down the road. The goal of building a cardboard boat to navigate a course in water, however appeals to all of them, many of the core disciplines of mechanical engineering happen to be well represented. If you just look at our core classes: mechanics of materials, well there’s the cardboard and the strength of beams. There’s the dynamics, when the boat go unstable with people trying to control it and the steering. And then there’s fluid part, both in the efficiency of the hull and in the use of paddles and other propulsion devices. And these are very broad themes across the school of engineering and science as well. So they bring in their boats and they line them up next to the pool. They are judged before they go in the water for of course infractions, that’s bad, but then we’re looking for the style, the spirit, the quality of the design, and these are all things you look at and you make an assessment on paper. Now that’s a minor fraction of the score. Most of the score and what determines the winner, will really be success of the mission. And I think that’s in line with the way an engineer has to think. We can analyze and make things beautiful, but it’s got to get the job done and it’s got to finish the course in order to take the big points. I just like to try new things and even if they don’t work out it’s fine, it’s the trying that’s the fun part not necessarily the winning or having the fastest, most efficient boat. And it’s really good to look at your calculations and then see that it all works out in the end. That’s one of the best parts. When you can go from a computer to actual, physical boat that is just like you imagined it; that’s one of the most rewarding parts for me. During the actual event we will have boat-handlers on deck to help the participants get onto or into their boats by holding the boat steady as they get in. Throughout the entire competition they need to have all three of their participants in the boat during their paddle session. If any of their participants fall out, then they’ve got to get back into the boat somehow before they can advance. Not very many succeed actually, quite a large fraction of these boats will sink. And I think if they were all successful the students wouldn’t enjoy it quite as much. I think one of the best sinkings that I’ve seen was last year, I believe it was. There was one boat and they got maybe 15 feet out on the course and it started sinking. And they didn’t try and panic or anything they just had one guy stand up and play an imaginary violin while the boat sank into the ocean. It’s a lot of fun even if you don’t have a solid boat. Being able to design an event that the students could do each year and each year it’s a little more difficult is something that we wanted the students to be able to have here on campus, but also to open it up to other universities. So the future of the Head of the Zesiger is definitely a bright future, and I can definitely see a lot of different colleges coming onboard to compete year after year. Hopefully we’ll have a good turn out from other schools in the future.


    What The Helm Diesel Water impeller incident on sailboat The Boat Life Sailing Adventure travel vlog

    November 16, 2019

    this whole thing started because I was
    getting a little bit of water well a lot of bit of water under the engine but
    here’s the problem with the c-clip there’s a c-clip I don’t have pliers for a
    c-clip that’s that’s why I made this quick video the first in a series called
    what the helm so here I am trying to replace the water impeller I was
    actually really worried that I did something wrong the first time because
    it was the first time I ever replaced the water impeller so I thought oh man
    maybe I didn’t put the seal on or I didn’t get the gasket right or something
    like that but I pulled it apart and it looks great check it out look at this
    well the impeller looks fine everything looked good
    grooves looked good so I didn’t know what was going on but then I looked closer at
    the impeller because well hold on this whole thing started because I was getting a
    little bit of water a lot of bit of water under the engine and you know
    that’s that was a cause for concern because I have a little mat under there
    so I can tell if I get water and I saw some after we ran the engine so I
    started to investigate and I saw that it was basically coming from the impeller
    so I thought immediately okay that’s probably what I did turns out it’s not
    it’s when I looked at there’s some corrosion like coming from the center so
    I think the seal that’s actually on the shaft of the impeller I don’t know but
    here’s the problem with the c-clip there’s a c-clip I don’t have pliers for a
    c-clip so I’m gonna wait I’m gonna buy some but what the helm
    so try to replace my water impeller today well I didn’t try to replace it try to
    troubleshoot it because I did replace the impeller before we came on our
    excursion down her e and I thought oh no I %&$#ed something up turns out I didn’t just
    that the water pump crapped out on me well I think that a seal went bad so
    I’ve been trying to take it apart that was fine I have the manuals manual I saw
    I was low connected but then there’s a c-clip do you know what a c-clip is I’ll show
    you right here has two little rings on it and you just take a special pair of
    pliers and you put them in there you squeeze it and you pull it right out
    it’s awesome it’s a great little clip unless you don’t have the pliers what
    the HELM but that’s all it’s my it’s my what the helm for the day little
    frustration from the old water impeller as you can see I’m trying to get things
    together and I was recording over there so I put everything over here but since
    it’s what the helm here I am at the helm in the comments share one of your what
    the HELM moments love to hear about it it makes me feel a little bit better I
    think that’s the boat life thanks for watching

    How To Remove Boat Oxidation – Chemical Guys Boat Heavy Compound – Marine and Watercraft

    November 13, 2019

    Today we’re gonna show you how to restore you boat back to original condition to get that shine back! As you can see, the paint has lost its shine, has a dull white chalky appearance, and it has no luster. But this can easily be restored with an original shine with some Boat Compound and some machine polishing. So today we’re gonna restore this boat with
    Chemical Guys Boat Heavy Compound. This is a boat-specific polishing compound designed to remove heavy oxidation, heavy scratches, and surface stains from your boat. This will work on gel coat, fiberglass, and even painted boats. It will also work on fun vehicles like jet skis, and small marine watercraft. This is a great polish to restore shine and get that luster back to the boat so you look great out on the water. Chemical Guys Boat Heavy Compound is safe for all marine wildlife, it’s water-based, and it’s not going to harm the environment. It’s easy to use in any ocean or lake setting with safe results. So now that the Boat Compound has finished working and cutting off the oxidation, we’ll grab a microfiber towel and buff off any excess. Now we’ve got that beautiful red shine back. I’ll remove this tape to show you the 50/50 difference. And look at that difference! That is simply incredible! We started out with a chalky, faded, and discolored look. A lot of people would think that the boat is completely destroyed, but we cut off all the oxidation and restored the beautiful red luster back to this boat. Now you know how to get the job done! If you want to do it right, go ahead and pick up the Chemical Guys Boat Heavy Compound.

    How To Clay a Boat – Chemical Guys Clay Eraser & Boat Hybrid Shine – Marine and Watercraft

    November 12, 2019

    Today we’re going to clay bar this red boat! This boat is contaminated, and it has lots of salt calcium buildup on the side of the hull. So I’m going to use the Chemical Guys Clay Eraser Mitt. I chose the Medium duty mitt because it is strong enough to pull out the salt and contamination. I’ll also be using Chemical Guys Boat Hybrid Shine. It’s a quick detail spray, but I’ll be using it as a clay bar lubricant because of its high lubricity. To get started I’ll go ahead and spray the area with the lubricant, and really saturate the working area. That way when we scrub with the clay mitt, we don’t hit any dry spots and cause any marring or scratches. With just a few passes, the surface is decontaminated. To finish, wipe down the area with a microfiber towel. Now the boat is ready to be polished and sealed. Boat Hybrid Shine is biodegradable and non-toxic to marine life.

    3 Sailing Tips to Save your Sailboat and Yourself!! – Patrick Childress Sailing #26

    November 11, 2019

    today on Brick House How the U V rays of the Sun affect your eyes, sometimes requiring surgery and how some
    unexpectedly inexpensive sunglasses can be better protection than the designer
    brand, and then shock absorbers for the main and jib sail when the wind dies but
    the waves are still up take that terrible snap out of those
    sails, how to fish out and patch a broken jib leechline
    a day on shore with the natives and some local yachting Madagascar style keep the
    bailer close by. Hello my name is Patrick Childress on the sailboat Brick House. I
    grew up in the southwest section of Miami and in the summer’s out of high
    school in the late 1960s if my friends and I weren’t waterskiing on the nearby
    lake then we were out scuba diving on the nearby reefs. In those days no one
    paid any attention to what the UV rays of the Sun were doing to one’s skin or
    their eyes. In 1979 I left Miami on a 27 foot sailboat to sail solo around the
    world. After completing that trip the worst
    part of that whole voyage was having to have both of my eyes operated on for
    pterygium. Pterygium effects anybody who’s outdoors a lot; construction
    workers, farmers, sailors, anyone who is exposed to constant eye irritation like
    dust, wind and especially the UV rays of the Sun. Pterygium starts out as a
    ‘pinguecula’. Take a look at this pinguecula. A pinguecula starts on the inside
    corner of the eye nearest the nose and it generally has a yellowish cast to it
    and it’s complete with blood vessels as it grows across the white of the eye and
    encroaches on the cornea, the clear lens of the eye, that is then called pterygium
    and is spelled with a PT. It can actually pull and deform the eye like a muscle
    and cause an astigmatism and certainly at that point it needs to be operated on to
    be removed. The sunglasses that are just open to the side they’re a benefit but
    they allow far too many rays of the Sun and wind in to damage the eye. A hat
    certainly helps but really the best thing is to use wraparound sunglasses as
    long as you don’t need prescription glasses – you can’t get wraparound
    sunglasses in a prescription as of yet. Some of the best glasses are
    actually the least expensive. These are safety glasses that you can buy at any
    hardware store for five or six dollars. The most important thing is to look for
    the ANSI – the American National Standards Institute designation on the
    Temple of the eyeglasses this will show that the safety glasses have been tested
    for impact resistance in UV protection along with other measures, These glasses
    are made of polycarbonate polycarbonate which is a natural inhibitor of UV rays of the Sun. Even if the glasses are clear like these safety glasses they’re 100% well
    did they ever say one percent 99.99% UV resistant. When the wind has died but the
    waves are still up what to do to take that terrible snapping slamming out of
    the main and the jib when you still have to sail? The best remedy that I have
    found is to use a snubber just like this anchor snubber that normally attaches to
    the chain. It can be looped around the boom of a mainsail and hooked back on to
    itself or a separate line can be tied around the boom and then the snubber
    attached to it or if the line is long enough on the outboard end of the
    snubber it can just be tied around the boom with two wraps and then tied with
    the bowline back on to itself and if you’re hanging out in Southeast Asia
    you’ll always see these old motorcycle inner tubes laying along the roadway.
    They may not be good enough to hold air but they’re great for shock absorbers
    whether at a docks or for taking that shock loading out of a sail while you’re
    still out at sea. So when we set up the shock absorber on this mainsail there’s
    a bail already on the boom its easy to attach to and it’s in a set up so when
    the shock absorber reaches its full extension then the mainsheet will take
    over the load. This certainly eases the pressure on the
    gooseneck and the sails. This shock absorber is set up on a Swan 53 and it’s
    so easy to set up the shock absorber on a Swan because there’s so many winches
    and cleats and all kinds of options to attach the bitter end to. Of course
    there’s a preventer tied to the other side of the boom. In this situation the
    shock absorber is set up as a jib sheet and once it gets to its full extension
    then the jib sheet takes over its loading in this light air it’s just nice
    to have a running pole, a lightweight running pole, to help hold out the jib so
    it doesn’t have such a throw for its movement. The outboard end of the pole is
    attached to a sacrificial loop of line that’s tied through the clew of the sail
    it also acts like a great hinge point and these light winds for my own use I
    just don’t see any sense in going through all the trouble to set up fore and aft guys and topping lifts. It’s just as easy to man handle these running poles and
    especially these smaller lighter what I would call whisker poles. In this
    situation the jib sheet is doing what it’s supposed to do but shock absorber
    is easing the vertical slamming on the sail and here you can see a close-up of
    the sacrificial loop of line to which the upward end of the running pole is
    attached to, so shock absorbers are a big help to save the sails, save the
    gooseneck, save the rigging, and also to ease all that terrible sounding noise. On
    the jib of Brick House and this is the clew of the jib and this is where the
    leechline used to be. iIt chafed through on this little cleat and we have no more
    adjustment, so if my problem is how to get the leechline
    out so I can tie a new piece to it and get us back in business again. So I cut
    just a tiny hole with a razor blade knife right through here being very
    careful not to cut the remainder of the leechline.Then I took this lighter
    and singed the threads so nothing would come unraveled. So now I’ll take my
    rigging knife and dig out that broken leech line and I’ll have about this much
    left to tie a new piece of line to, and get us back in business again. That was easy enough – sometimes you get lucky. On the staysail we had the
    same problem of a damaged leech line because of that cleat, but there, there was
    enough line exposed at the bottom of the pocket of the leech lines where I
    could grab it and pull it down and raise the sail up away from it and then clamp
    the leechline with vice grips the jaws of which were wrapped in tape so that I
    wouldn’t be biting through and breaking the leechline so that gave me enough
    exposed leech line to where I could tie it to a new extension and that was a
    much easier process getting us back in business. So I joined this Dyneema to the
    old leech line and I left a little extra here because there was a worn section in
    here I don’t want to risk tying to a bad area and having that break so I’ll shove
    this down it has a bit of stiffness to it and I can feel it coming down if I
    run into any snags and I can use a retrieving tool like this to shove up inside and grab the line and
    pull it down. But I think this is gonna work out okay. There it is, good
    I had a long pair of needlenose pliers I could have also stuck up in there to
    help pull it down. I’ll give myself plenty of line to come through… I don’t even
    like using this anymore because of that chafe factor. I’m gonna go around it and
    just use the eyes since we don’t really adjust the sail that much and I’ll give
    myself plenty of line. So I wrapped the new Dyneema extension through the eyes
    several times and then tied it off bypassing those terrible sharp jaws of the
    adjusting cleat. I don’t want to turn this into a destination YouTube channel
    but there’s just so many fun things that we get into I just feel like I need to
    show it to somebody… so I have a series of videos here that I’ve strung together
    and this shows our new friend Paul who showed us around his island and then
    took us for our sail in his dhow. This is the son of my sister …oh the son of your
    sister so your ‘nephew’. A cruiser had given Paul a solar panel and a 12 volt battery
    AND a single light bulb so he has enough power to also run some simple
    electronics. Very cool…look at the little kitten – a little snowball! How many kittens? Are there five? four? ONE? Meow Meow…Only one little baby hah? Better bring you back to your mommy before she misses you too much ha? This roof is made from palm..and the wood is for planking. Oh yeah…. This was the middle of the dry season so
    there wasn’t the waterfall that we had hoped for. But does the pig get smart yeah yeah yeah…and learn not to go…maybe he sees trap, and not to go yeah yeah yeah so maybe he see trap he see food but nah.. too dangerous…no
    no no no he like some food yeah because you you like some, you
    love some Rafia.( a flower seed) And how often do you catch pig? Maybe one or two weeks like this, they come in. Yes, On the first day, you make some seed and the pigs you come in to eat one day.
    ????///Oh ok… A Frenchman had been living on
    this island and went away for a couple of weeks at which time he died but while
    he was away a bad storm came along and washed his sailboat way up onto the sandy
    beach near the mangroves and it’s been sitting here now for several years. We had a fantastic fish lunch with rice
    and mango salad Singing… Thank you Paul for a fantastic day!

    How To Wipe Down a Boat – Chemical Guys Boat Wipe Down – Marine and Watercraft

    November 10, 2019

    This is the new Boat Wipedown Detail Spray from Chemical Guys. This detail spray will help remove any dirt, debris, or bird droppings from any boat part that’s painted, fiberglass, gel coat, clear glass or optical plastic, and even polished metal. This detail spray is also designed to remove fresher water spots. Over time, if you don’t remove water quickly enough, the minerals in the water can cause stains, and if you don’t remove those stains fast enough, they can etch into the surface and cause permanent damage. We have some fresher water spots here on the console. They’re not wiping off with any other detail spray. I’m going to try Boat Wipedown to neutralize and pull off these water spots. I’ll give it a couple quick sprays, then take a clean microfiber towel and buff off the spray and water spots. You can see some of the contamination that I’ve pulled off, so I’ll flip to the dry side to buff off any residue. You can see right there: I’ve removed any water spots from the gel coat! There were even some spots on the gauge, the chrome ring around it, and all the plastic. We removed all the water spots from the surface. Boat Wipedown is biodegradable and non-toxic to marine life.

    The ROT, RUST, & REWARD of BOAT Ownership

    November 9, 2019

    It’s soaking it’s sopping wet. We’re gonna do this on our own. Yep so what were going to do is dig it all out. All of the rotting wood. You feel successful I can see it in your face. I don’t even know how many
    hours I’ve worked on this So this is Stuart in the nighttime Shel also received a new toy or tool as he calls it Previously on searching for C-Shels we
    start some important projects while docked in Stuart Florida. We visit some
    injured Turtles at the loggerhead Marine Center and we prep the boat for possible
    hurricanes. When we said projects at Stuart, we weren’t kidding. Look at this.
    All Tollycrafts have this piece of mahogany that is a spacer between the flybridge and the hull sides.
    Notoriously they rot out, it’s not a big deal, it’s not structural. But mine is definitely rotted out. On this side, the other side was replaced so on the
    advice of a friend, who did it without taking the fly bridge off. We’re going to do this one our own. We’re going to attempt it. What we’re going to do is dig it all out, all of the rotting wood. Then I’m going to get something to template it and push it up. Buy another piece of mahogany, epoxy that mahogany and will saturate it. stick it up and drill it all in again Wow It’s soaking it’s sopping wet. Yes so projects, I’ve already got the inside this won’t happen again because I got the inside
    sealed up you know we did that that was project number one I gotta say it was biggest project yet. This is a big job. A lot of clean up has to happen. This is saturated. Gotta say, it was perfectly calm before we started this and of course now that I got this plastic
    taped up and doing this, the wind has picked up. We’ll probably get a Thunderstorm. And the wind has taken all of the little bits and have put them all over the
    boat so we’ll have to be cleaning up. This is how we get around. On their bikes This is the bus here at Sunset Bay Marina and every
    Tuesday They will take you to West Marine Walmart, Publix for groceries and it’s a
    great feature not going on in the summer but great for people here in the winter Project Day, I’ll show you what we’re doing
    on the side of the flybridge There is a big gap. I’ve got to get this adhesive off. So I’ve removed this the way back to the back of the
    flybridge has been removed it is it was all rotten from that far. Now I only
    have about six feet from here that I’ve hit some good wood and chisel some
    away make a square and get a piece measure all this out, get a piece to fit
    up in here and then get some smaller pieces to be able to fit up in here I’ll
    glue it up with 4200 screw it in and hopefully it will be good as new take a look – can’t fit you up there time to chisel this away Alright here’s my dilemma. I’ve got one
    and three-quarter inch of space in there at the bottom and it narrows up at the
    top the original way that they’re Tollycraft had put in there was they had
    a 1 inch piece and then a 3/4 inch piece of plywood stuck up at this last bit so
    what they did was put the 1 inch piece of board on screwed up before the
    flybridge went on and then when they put the flybridge down on they slid a piece of
    3/4 inch plywood up in there to screw into and then you know fasteners on the
    inside to the side cabin walls and then the flybridge was right through both
    pieces of wood. I have a problem because if I put a 1 inch piece up inside I won’t
    have enough room to put any screws on the inside wood to fasten to the cabin
    side Let me go measure this all up this screw goes in through the
    flybridge and through the piece of wood And just comes close to the flybridge cabin
    in some cases it goes in just slightly I take a drill bit and go right in here
    just drill in maybe a 1/4 of an inch into the flybridge into the cabin wall
    side get a quarter of an inch longer screw I can go right through the whole
    wood and into the cabin side at least in some spots so that I get a bond with
    screw and through whole piece. So now I get one piece of wood and get a bigger screw. Costco, going to get more stuff. We’re getting ready. Yes I ordered
    some dry goods They have a great place to get mail here Does he not do anything that you have to take a movie of him when he does it. I take movies all the
    time. Take a picture of the two of us. Okay what do you love about Sunset Bay Marina Him. Yup and he’s a character. You
    keep everybody laughing around here. The two of us, we have hair. Look at the hair we got.
    That’s you only thing we got going for ourselves. Awe, no personality We rent a car here at Sunset Bay Marine
    from Richard on Turo and he’s great he comes and he picks us up and drops us
    off here at the marina which has been great for us Richard’s coming that’s all we did I think all week I
    know what you mean we got the car we’re going to Fort
    Pierce to a boat store I think I’m gonna replace, I think you’re gonna
    replace my anchor chain. They’ve got a good deal there 200 feet is a dollar
    seventy-five dollars $3.75 foot for something that’s really good
    first off though I feel naked because I’ve been two weeks without my Maui Jims
    so I’ve sent him away to Maui Jim and now I’m going to go get them back brand new. They gave me a brand new pair. Maui
    Jim. Ahh I can see again. Optical World the team in there have been awesome they’ve
    helped us out a lot and they’ve got Sheldon back with new glasses
    we highly recommend them they’ve been very accommodating because they didn’t have make
    any money. I didn’t buy my glasses there and I didn’t get my prescription done there I didn’t yeah
    I just had a problem with the prescription now I got a new pair
    of Maui Jims. Optical World in Stuwart at the Treasure Coast mall The A1A Sheldon. Yup it will take us right up to Fort
    Pierce. The National Connection Liquidators Wish I had my buddy Barry around now, he’d love going in here. Yes you guys would have too much fun. chain, chain, chain… Thank-you! So we took the old stuff out.Iit’s thrown away, Oh No
    look at this and then this flies around and this is an actual rust that will
    stain your decks. Anyways I’m glad we got new chain, expensive but now I see well
    worth it hi guys I’ve got the wood put into
    the side, it fits perfect. I think I’m gonna be finished this week I’ve got holes
    drilled in some places all the way through to the cabin side so it’s gonna
    be held firm in place so I have to epoxy this down and put all back together 4200, screw it in and I’m done Epoxy is done also replaced the engine
    room floor with plywood the same type of wood that is for strapping for those
    supports and all epoxied and bilge painted. I was gonna put starboard down but it was
    a bit expensive so I went with the cheaper route, the other stuff lasted 20
    something years so this will last as long or more with this covered in epoxy. How is your day going? Good. Just went and got a shower. Did you do as much as I did today? Yes I did some
    organization. Did you leave a mess like this? No. What about a mess like that here. No definitely not. You’ll clean it up. You feel successful I
    can see it in your face. Yes I’m very pleased. I’ve got some very technical tools just
    put the 42 up 4200 up inside baking spatulas at the dollar store
    look just be able to put the 4200 on that and put it all the way through
    otherwise I don’t know how I would have done I was thinking about doing it with
    a pair of latex gloves but I think I would have made a disastrous mess it looks good fits perfect solid so now
    I just have to screw the hardware back on on tracks from the underneath fibreglass
    piece I am very pleased this is a job complete
    and I don’t even know how many hours I’ve worked on this. A good 25-30 hours
    planning and everything else is well everything’s back together and all the
    trim pieces are back up Good as new. This is Stuart in the nighttime. They
    have a lot of restaurants we just left the Marina over here, Sailor’s Return
    which will get happening soon. And you just walk the boardwalk and you go down… going to find somewhere to eat. we’ve eaten out a
    lot here. It’s just a good place to eat out. Just a lot of restaurants that are
    close by and a lot of them are good we’re deciding between like a sushi
    noodle curry place or one of our favorites is the Spritz City.
    We’ll see where we end up. Let’s go. We need more food How was that? Fantastic. I would have to say. Again we’ve been here
    five times but we love it here and this may be our last we are soon heading out of Stuart we managed to pull off some other
    projects before our time and Stuart came to an end Shel ran acid through the
    cooling system in the engines to clear out marine growth and mineral build-up
    to help cool the engine better we also replaced our Rocna vulcan anchor the
    original one was showing some signs of rust and Rocna via west marine were
    kind enough to replace it with a brand new anchor drop us a comment below if
    you have any questions on any of these projects Shel also received a new toy
    or tool as he calls it. A new DJI Mavic 2 pro drone. We really did need a new drone,
    the splash drone we had before was much better at floating than it ever was at
    flying now it’s time to head out back to remote secluded Anchorages in
    crystal-clear waters and soft sandy beaches in the Bahamas but first it’s
    off to Fort Lauderdale to see the extravagance of the Fort Lauderdale
