    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.

    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

    3 Boat Cleaning Tips & Tricks to Tackle Your Toughest Stains | BoatUS

    October 19, 2019


    Hey there, folks! Lenny Rudow here for BoatUS Magazine. You know, when it comes to cleaning up your
    boat, there are a lot of tough chores to take care of. The internet is full of awesome tips on how
    to take care of it. But the internet is also full of some advice
    that is downright dangerous! So, today, we’re going to talk about three
    top cleaning hacks that you can use on your boat. Hack number one: mold and mildew stains on
    vinyl is really tough to get rid of. Now, you can use a chlorine-based product,
    but it will destroy your vinyl. It takes a big toll. However, OxyClean actually does a really good
    job of getting out those stains. So, we’re just gonna sprinkle a little bit
    here, give a little dose of water and a little scrubbing and some good old-fashioned elbow
    grease. Much better! Actually, this is a two-part hack. After you clean that vinyl, you want to hit
    it with some 303 Protectant. That will help keep the mold and mildew from
    getting back in there into the vinyl material. Sun-dried fish blood is another tough one
    to clean. Now the best way to handle it is, first-off,
    to give your boat a good coat of wax in the springtime so stuff cleans off easier. Second-off, scrub it and rinse it away the
    moment the fish blood gets on the gelcoat. But when you don’t manage to do that and all
    else fails, go for your Barkeeper’s Friend. Sprinkle a little bit of this stuff on that
    blood, let that sit for just a little bit, percolate, add a little bit of water, and
    then give it some good old-fashioned elbow grease. Oh yeah! That’s taking it up! There you go! Folks, this one really aggravates me. Hard water spots on my windshield. I mean, come on! I just washed the boat, and this is the reward
    I get? Hard water spots? Well, 50/50 mix of vinegar and water will
    take care of that. When you’re working on your gelcoat, if hard
    water spots are an issue, just chamois the boat as soon as you’ve washed it. Ah! Much nicer. I like that. Well, folks, I hope you found this video helpful. Don’t forget to leave your comments in the
    box below, and by all means, please subscribe to the BoatUS YouTube channel. Have a good one!

    How To Troubleshoot and Fix Boat Trailer Lights that Don’t Work | BoatUS

    October 18, 2019


    You plug in your trailer lights every time
    to test them before you tow your boat, right? What happens if they don’t blink when they’re
    supposed to? Or, worse, they blink when they’re not supposed
    to. We’re going to show you how to troubleshoot
    them and fix what’s wrong. First, you want to physically disconnect the
    tow vehicle from the trailer, including the chains. Otherwise you may be masking a ground problem,
    which we’ll get to in a minute. The next step is to plug a tow vehicle tester
    light into your vehicle’s connector. You can get these for as little as $10 online. If the tester shows a problem, you know it’s
    with the vehicle, not with the trailer. Note the trailer wire color code. White is ground. Brown is the taillights. Green in the right turn and brake light. You can remember that green has an “r” in
    it for right. Yellow is the left turn and brake light. And you can remember that because yellow has
    an “l” in it for left. If the tester says the vehicle’s lights are
    OK, the problem is with the trailer. But before we go any further, we’re going
    to clean these contacts off with a little bit of emery board or sandpaper. And we’re going to squirt some contact cleaner. And finally, apply a little dielectric grease. Now we’ll try it again. Still no luck? Might just be a bulb burned out. We’re going to remove the bulb, clean these
    contacts in here with the back of a pencil eraser or some sandpaper, spray with a little
    contact cleaner. We’ll put a little dielectric grease on the
    back of the new bulb, put it back in, and try it. If you still can’t get the lights to come
    on, especially if it’s just one side of the trailer, it may be a break in the wiring. Folllow each wire and look for a break or
    damage. On this trailer, the wires run inside the
    frame, and we can’t see every inch of it. If you can’t find a break in the wire or you’re
    not sure, you’re going to need to run a jumper wire. What we’ve done, the other end of this wire
    is connected to the green wire at the front of the trailer. We’ve connected this to one end of our meter,
    the other end of the meter is here. We’ll check for continuity on this green wire. And there we go. We have continuity, so we know this wire is
    good. You can check each wire the same way until
    you find a wire that’s not good. If you find a break in the wire, cut it and
    use a heat-shrink connector to repair it. If the lights are dim or there’s other strange
    stuff going on, like the brake lights flashing when the turn signal is on or they only work
    sometimes, that may be a ground problem. We’re going to take the ground strap off here
    and see if that fixes it. Find the ground screw on the trailer. It’s almost always a white wire. We’re going to take it off, clean it with
    a little sandpaper or emery board, spray it with some contact cleaner, and put a little
    dielectric grease for good contact. So now the next time your trailer lights act
    up you’ll know what to do, and you won’t have to pay someone else to do it. Now let’s hit the road!

Where is your life jacket Bhaiya (boat rider)! It’s behind you. OK. It’s very safe to ride a boat here. Safeness of boat ride might depend on the weather here. Is it safe to ride a boat here? It’s very safe, and you can have a life jacket if afraid! I have heard of accidents here. No No. It usually happens when you are riding the boat drunk. If the person is drunk heavily and the boatman also drunk then only accidents happen. Are we coming in the frame? Today we are taking a boat ride in Naini Lake. If there is no lake here, then no body will come. I am taking the Nainital Lake background too. Bhaiya, please do take about the boat. Yes yes I am taking care. There are many fishes here & we are enjoying boating here. We used to have a fear of boating, but bhaiya has given us confidence. He told us, it’s very safe to boat here. In a rare case, accidents happen. When someone is drunk or the weather is too bad. We are enjoying the boat ride, and when you will come here, do have a boat ride. See so many fishes. See the orange one. People feed them here. [Tourists riding a boat at Nainital Lake] So bhaiya, whats other than lake is famous here? Famous here is just lake if you have roamed all over Nainital but not done boating your visit is incomplete. Tourist comes here for this lake if no lake here then nothing here. Guide, restaurants, boatmen, shops are surviving due to this lake only. Naini Jheel is the best jheel here. Not big but deepest. Bheemtal is long, but Naini Lake is deep. Ending the boat ride.

    Adirondack Coast – Boating on Lake Champlain

    October 16, 2019


    Bounded on the west by the Adirondack
    Mountains of New York, and on the east by the Green Mountains of Vermont, Lake Champlain is just minutes south of the US-Canadian border. The lake’s cool clear waters are a Mecca for boaters who enjoy every move the lake has to
    offer, from its wide windy reaches to as many hidden coves.
    There are marinas that cater to any boaters wish, be it a berth for a
    night, or the entire season. Some even rent
    sailboats or runabouts and many marinas have mishap decks and dining rooms for a relaxing lakeside repast. So whether you take your boating seriously, luxuriously, or frugally, Lake Champlain has the
    perfect setting for everyone. But even without a boat the
    lake still can be accommodating. I’m Derek Muirden, watch for my Roadside Adventures on
    Mountain Lake PBS and I’ll be watching for you all along
    the Adirondack Coast.
