    Art Lesson: Sailboat Painting on Kids Connection

    September 19, 2019


    – All right, guys, my name is Shelly. I’m here with Art Parties Tonight. Today I’m going to show you how to do this nice boat picture. We’ve already got our
    background painted on here, and that’s what you would
    do here in the studio, but I’m gonna show you how to do the waves and the sail today. So, we have our boat
    drawn on here really nice. We’re gonna start with our largest brush, which is provided here at the studio, and we’re gonna go ahead
    and start with white paint. With this white paint, we want to go ahead and draw the form of our sail, which is basically a big triangle. Really simple, we’ll just start up here. Gonna come straight down. And we’re gonna do that again. We’re gonna come down on
    an angle on the other side. Kind of matches up with the size of the boat that we’ve drawn. Then with this line, we’re just gonna curve it down just a little bit. Once you get to that point,
    we just get to fill it in. Nothing too hard, we’re
    just gonna take our brush, paint in the white background of the sail. And that’s gonna get us set up for our black detail
    that we’ll do at the end. That’s already lookin’ like a sailboat. Okay, we’re gonna let that
    dry for just a little bit. I’m gonna come through
    with our smallest brush. With this, I’m gonna put in some waves. We have some blue waves
    that kinda come through our black background here like
    they’re comin’ off the boat. These are really simple to draw. You’re basically just starting like you’re gonna go up and draw a circle, and then instead of connecting it back, you’re just gonna loop in. We’re just gonna do those
    swirls all around our boat. I’m usin’ blue paint
    with my smallest brush. (upbeat music) Some of these can even come right through our red of our boat. We wanna kinda fill this black space with some of those blue swirls
    because we will actually outline those with white at
    the end so they’ll really pop. Gonna do a couple more. Okay, now that I’ve got that on there, we’re gonna come back
    with some black paint. I’m still gonna be using
    my smallest brush here. I’m gonna do some details. Since the sail is still a little wet, we’re gonna start up
    here on this little flag, and we’re just gonna outline
    that with black paint. And that’s kind of the
    same shape as our boat, just a loose curved shape. Also gonna give some
    little details on my boat. We’re gonna put some lines at the corners. Then I’m gonna do a line that
    kinda goes across the top. We’re also gonna put a
    little stick comin’ out that our sail’s attached to. That’s gonna be at the top as well. Then now what we get to do next is we get to add these lines,
    the details of our sail. It’s gonna make it look
    less like a triangle, but we still get to leave
    all of our white paint there. So, we’re gonna start with the continuation of that
    line that we just drew. That’s just gonna bring us all the way down to our post there. Then we’re gonna do two curved lines. We’re gonna do one on each side, so I’m just starting at the top. It’s best to work from top to bottom. Just gonna connect down
    there at the bottom. The same thing on the left side. Then we’re gonna go ahead and outline our sail
    next with black paint. It’s gonna make it stand
    out a little bit more. So, we’re just doin’ that triangle shape that we started out with in the beginning. We have one last thing to do, and that’s to go ahead and
    put some of those details that I was talkin’ about
    earlier on the waves, and that’s gonna be with white paint. We have two different
    sets that we’re gonna do. To give this blue part a
    little bit more time to dry, we’re gonna start down here at the bottom. We have some loose waves
    that we need to do. This part’s really simple. All we’re gonna do is just draw some Ws. So, you’re just gonna do some little Ws that kinda come across our
    different colors of blue here. So, you’re just doin’ Ws side by side. That’s gonna give us our waves. It’s an easy way to draw waves. Gonna come through with some more. With this second set, you can kind of overlap and criss cross them. Now that we’ve got those
    bottom waves on here, we’re gonna go ahead and
    come back to our blue waves that we drew, and those
    were the swirls that we did. We’re just gonna go ahead
    and outline our swirls, but we still wanna see some of that blue paint whenever we do it. So, I’m gonna start on
    the center of my swirls and just work my way to the outside. We’re just comin’ through and we’re gonna do that
    on all of our swirls here. And that’s really gonna
    make it easy for you to see those swirls from a distance ’cause the blue against the
    black doesn’t show up very well. And since our blue paint
    was still a little wet, we actually get a nice light blue, so it looks more like
    the color of our water. All right, and that completes
    our sailboat for today. You can come in and do this
    along with many other paintings. Our kids’ paints, all of them
    will be on a 12 by 12 canvas for just $15.00 and adults can come too.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Coil Rope for Sailing

    September 18, 2019


    There’s a proper way to coil lines on a boat.
    Most of the lines on the boat are braided lines, and they’re–you want to coil them
    up in a specific way. Not like a cowboy would, by putting a twist in it and forming loops,
    because if you do that, what will happen is–see how I’m twisting it now, the improper way;
    don’t do it this way. When you take it apart, you end up with what they call knuckles in
    the line. Of course it doesn’t do it with me. You end up with knuckles, which are these
    little things like this, and they get caught up in the blocks when we’re trying to let
    them out. So on a braided line, when you coil it up, you actually want to just pull–bring
    the line in and let it lay naturally. And what it will do is form a figure eight naturally,
    and you lay it the same direction each time. And it forms a figure eight. And then when
    you drop the line down onto the deck, you won’t get knuckles, and it won’t get locked
    up in the blocks. So once you get to the end of this line, if you don’t have these nice,
    fancy clips to hang your lines, what you can do is reach through this line, grab the working
    end, put a twist or two in it, and hang it over a winch. Now you can pull it down, and
    it hangs nice and neatly. Now when it’s read–you’re ready to use it, you can lift it off and drop
    it down, and everything comes off nice and easy. Nothing comes out in knots. So that’s
    the way to properly–that’s one way of properly coiling up a braided line.

    Un-Armed PIRATES & INTRUDERS – Self Defense on Sailboats against THEFT(Patrick Childress Sailing 42)

    September 18, 2019


    hello we are Patrick and Rebecca
    Childress on the sailboat Brick House. Rebecca and I both know five
    people who have been captured and held hostage for ransom in the southeastern
    Philippines on the island of Jolo. two of those people did not make it out
    alive of course this happens elsewhere in the
    world like off of Somalia and other places but in this video we aren’t
    talking about these heavily armed pirates that when they approach your
    boat you’re shit out of luck you don’t have a chance the world of escaping them
    and if you think you want to pop off a few rounds from your 308 or ar-15 go
    right ahead because it’ll be the last thing that you do before you become
    Obliberated so in this video we aren’t talking about heavily armed pirates we
    are talking about the guys who come on your boat with machetes or intruders in
    the middle of the night that are there to steal your outboard we are talking
    about non-lethal defense to send a very clear message to these guys that they
    made the wrong decision to come upon your boat and we know other
    people that have been out on the ocean in the middle of the night two o’clock
    in the morning accosted by a fishing boat trying to pull up alongside and our
    friends are calling Mayday Mayday on channel 16 and nobody’s responding if
    they had some pepper spray or something to lob onto that fishing boat they
    would have been in great shape but they were able to pull ahead motor wise and
    then throw a big wad of polypropylene line over the side and then that caught
    the property of these approaching fishermen and that stopped them in the
    water but you know the last thing I want to do is if a fisherman is approaching
    the boat or somebody’s approaching the boat we’re not quite sure what their
    intentions are but it doesn’t seem so it doesn’t seem so good the last thing I
    want to do is you know shoot off a gun and kill one of them I mean that’s just
    gonna land me in a rotten prison wherever I am but since it’s at a distance I’d
    like to be able to lob something at him too so that they definitely know that
    we’re not the boat to pick so that’s the idea we were in a mall in Richards Bay
    South Africa we saw all these arms in the window we
    could not believe what they had but it turns out they weren’t real
    they were co2 powered so there’s a lot of good ideas in there but what the most
    amazing thing was a simple paintball gun a lot of people in the world play
    paintball and where they shoot each other with die marked balls but now you
    change the projectile in those guns they become very impressive and so let’s go
    to the mall we’ll take a look at a lot of these things and then you decide what
    you think might work best yeah and let us know in the comments down below which
    ones you think you’d have on your boat if some other ideas that you have for
    the same kind of thing we’re always looking for more ideas nice simple ideas
    things that don’t cost a lot of money but what would you have on your boat let
    us know in the comments down below of course you have to be careful where you
    bring these things they’re perfectly legal in South Africa but in Australia
    I wonder if even a slingshot is legal there you can get a lot of trouble for
    bringing even these toys into foreign countries so you have to research the
    customs and other laws in these foreign countries before you go cruising in with
    them yeah a good place to do that just go on new noonsite.com and they’ll they’ll have
    it pretty much in the description what you can and can’t bring you gets not the
    gospel but it’s a pretty good place to start yeah there’s another technical
    problem in a mall you know all the incredible reverb in the sound in the
    air in the mall and we had that same problem in this store so the sound is
    not that great to start with yeah we had the manager was able to close one door
    entry door he couldn’t close both of them and look like these shut up but the
    one door did help quite a bit then I put the video through audio scrubbing
    cleaning and that helped quite a bit so it gets better the audio gets better as
    we go along and also his accent there’s so many different accents in South
    Africa and his is Durban accent well Durban Indian Afrikaans a little bit of
    everything He is a good representation of accents in South
    Africa so effect I went through a lot of trouble to put in the closed captions
    and making sure that that’s accurate so just click on the CC button down there
    on the bottom if maybe you’re having trouble understanding or hearing any
    of the spoken words, and there are lots of languages too – okay let’s go to the mall… okay Security Hyper Store…kay holy moly look at these guys
    submachine gun? yeah it looks pretty serious look on the box
    the co2 air power. Let’s go in and get a picture… okay well hello there Chevron how are you
    doing this morning this is Chevron we’ve talked to her I
    don’t know 20 times I’m sure she’s been educating us along with Zain, and all the
    defense’s yeah this is amazing because we were just walking down the mall one
    day and saw all of these guns wow that’s pretty serious stuff but as
    it turns out none of it shoots gunpowder, none of them whatsoever. and we actually try to concentrate on
    anything that does not require a license and yet be able to defend
    yourself okay so all of these toys the co2 powered paintball guns all of that
    in South Africa is there an age limit for buying any of these? Our company
    actually doesn’t allow us to sell it to under 18. They would have to be
    older than 18 and present your ID as well for safety purposes. So for somebody living
    on a sailboat like us that’s nothing but one big headache to have some kind of a gun powdered firearm onboard, but yeah we saw the co2 pistols and rifles so what I
    actually wanted to start off with one of these ones.. actually one of our
    customers favorites. It’s a BB gun so shooting these metal balls here
    operating with co2 gas which is a non-lethal gas it won’t be able to affect you whatsoever as well and can you buy these all over the world
    um most places that do actually have it like we said in America and stuff, they do
    actually have different sizes. in South Africa we are standard
    size which is a 12 gram gas canister that’s 12 grams 12 grams. So our
    customers favorite because of the realistic feature of this gun itself. As you can see it’s just like a real gun. So it’s very simple. Very easy, very simple…With this gun you can have the options of semi-automatic and fully automatic so
    Let’s just say you need to shoot just one bullet. And then you can always switch it to full automatic mode…Holey Tamoley! That can shoot 19 bullets in 5 seconds!
    bullets in five seconds that’s That’s Impressive! That IS impressive! Now that’s pellets? BBs..BBs. Our
    customers really do love this gun, the reason being it’s an excellent deterrent. if
    you pull this out you just have to Cock it, and you are gonna think that I do have
    a real gun in my hand. It’s very realistic, the cock feature. So guys, its actually It’s actually an excellent deterrent, to actually deter your guys away.. our number one baby for our customers. Now, and it operates off if this…CO2 cartridge… and where does the CO2 cartridge go? Slip the CO2 canister here. So you take your Allen key, and open up a notch. This part comes out. Your gas canister, you just drop it inside, you tighten it up, and you are ready for use. And how long can you use that cartridge for. It will give you approximately 35 shots. 35 shots. Oh. So you went through almost a complete. almost through a complete canister. With automatic mode, it’s very easy to finish up your gas because of the rapid fire. Wow! okay now with the BB like that say like
    12 meters away what is it going to feel like. Well with BBs, we give you up
    to 10 meters we can be looking at a piercing so it will be into your skin. at
    10 meter up to 10 meters , where you just have to kinda pop them out. Most of the time, our guys know they don’t even shoot
    the gun you just put it out, (cock it) and they go away
    and it goes away…it works like a charm! yeah okay and once you put the cartridge
    in there can you pull it out six months later and expect it to work? No you can not. How long? Because it’s a gas, at
    the end of the day we give it to you to keep your gun secure at the same time
    you’ll say within 5 days you should use up your gas when you’re not using your
    gun over a longer duration, do not leave an open gas inside it’s just wastes and wears out the seals of your gun. So look
    after the gun so your gun can last a long time. Okay next thing I’d like to show the hand pistols would actually be the
    paintball gun specifically this one
    it’s our latest range for self-defense especially. It’s a six-shot you just load
    your… this here is actually going to be loaded with solids and peppers. so the solids
    whatever you hit you literally just break. I will get you a sample to show
    you the solids and the peppers. Okay, but starting with though, this is just a regular paint ball gun that a lot of people use when they play paintball yes
    and hit each other with the ball that explodes with ink. I will show
    you the paintball as well so that you do have a good idea of what we actually are looking at here. At the end of the day, remember, it is just a toy. But a toy that can actually defend you at the same time so that’s regular paint ball if you
    just want to mess around, take a few shots have some fun that’s your normal
    paint…and they really don’t hurt when you get hit. No…its a small sting nothing too bad. Thats why those guys
    wear the masks when they play? Yeah have to protect their face…don’t want it in the eye! it ’s very important to have your mask in to protect your eyes and protect your face. Yeah safety equipment… Ok, so our defense range…these are solid balls. solid balls. solid balls, how they work is… whatever you hit…you practically break..glass – straight through these ones here. BONES…you are looking at damage wise with these guys where you can break a bone or two. It’s a
    non-lethal item so it will not pierce the skin it’s meant to just defend yourself
    to put the person down so it gives you the upper hand in the situation for you to
    actually move away from the surrounding areas. Pepper balls are my very favorite
    reason being, one or two pepper balls are excellent. The guy cannot actually see
    you. Also if there are multiple guys, one two pepper balls are effective on all
    of them. The moment it passes in the air they all breathing at the end they can not
    attack you They are just trying to breathe themselves. I mean if I wore a lot of shirts or a
    jacket will it still explode? If it’s hits on a surface…you see it’s gonna
    pop so even next to them if you can fire It because the moment it goes in the
    air they also taking it in, if you find they are wearing too much clothing yeah so you don’t have to hit
    the person just hit next to them and you can hard-surfaced next to them. yeah hit a hard
    surface next to them. I do, personally prefer the chest reason being the moment
    it hits , they breathe it in, and are out on the ground. They cannot attack you and what percentage
    pepper is this? That’s a seven percent so you also do have ten percent peppers it’s ten percent that’s our bigger
    paintball guns which is more stronger as well. this specific one does pack a punch
    though so what I like about this gun is you load your bullets you load your gas
    inside the moment you load your gas it does NOT activate so you can keep this
    for a year for example in your gun.. There is no issue. The time comes when you need to use your gas, you press down here Here only it activates the gas and there
    after you can.. Thats good. Thats good…reason being it’s always going to be ready for
    self-defense you don’t have to think is there gas in my gun…do I have to worry. In
    a self-defense situation you don’t have time to be worrying about is there gas in my pocket?
    You want to be able to defend yourself and that works like a charm… And it uses still that
    same cartridge co2? Yes, co2 cartridge. which are sold nationwide.
    and you still get about 25 shots out of it…or 20 if glass because it takes more power. That should be enough, hah? More than enough… 1 mag is 6 shots, and you get 3. Pretty decent… you get 3 magazines CDs and so you now okay that
    uses the smaller caliber but can you get 10% pepper spray in the smaller caliber
    the smaller ones this is our latest Ninja King gun
    because most of our paintball guns, and if you do see the size of it pretty big guns, so our
    guys required actually required something more compact to keep on them and also non
    Lethal at the same time which are smaller ones are here, as for the
    bigger rifles is a variety you can pick from there as well we shoot the bigger pellets, and in the range on on this for hitting a something an
    exploding uh bear in mind, wind really makes a big difference because these Pellets are light as well so indoors, you are gonna get a
    longer distance easy on them will be on 40 meters, 30 meters. 40 meters. 40.
    I’ll give you about forty now without wind. Indoors. Damage-wise even twenty meters you are breaking a bone…so you are doing some good damage with those as well. Bear in mind you do upgrade your gun though. We know people who have been harassed
    people on foreign boats and if they And if they could have launched something like this
    onto their boat gas it would have been a great deterrent more powerful bigger
    thing would be the rifle you think there’s larger diameter paint then we
    just take this one for example so the advantage on these ones here is you got
    a hopper feed this hopper feed can hold up to 200 bullets we have a choice
    between 45 or 200 so it gives you a lot of shots you know that even if you’re
    not the best person to shoot you will still be able to Hit your target in the end.With this here, it takes the bigger canisters this is easier you will be getting more
    shots as well approximately 150 or so it depends on your pressure gauge at the
    end of today the extendable stop to make it more
    comfortable to hold. You do racks on the end of your gun as well to add a laser sight or
    torch so at night as well you will be secured you will be able to
    use it. Very simple you just cock, and…you fire…Very easy to use.. ladies at home, so very easy to use
    as you can see there’s just a safety catch so the kids can’t play wit it…and it uses quite a
    different canister of gas canister with the advantage of being able to get it in
    multiple sizes: 4 all the way up to 24 ounces so it depends on the size if you
    go the more shots again yeah approximately on a 20 ounce you get
    about 1400 shots but then again this is just a standard paintball gun canister
    of gas which you can buy wherever they play paintball with a living and you can
    fill it up with it as well okay so these are all toys really but ichange
    the projectile and it becomes quite a different piece of machinery.
    exactly. Now the the diameter of the projectile…is it the smaller or the bigger? No more smaller these are the glass
    breakers. These are the proper ones for self-defense whatever these hit, it breaks
    for example, glass, like I said, RIBS, LEGS, You can do some major damage with these here.
    Rubber balls they actually use in riot control they give a hell of a
    sting the guys kind of use this actually to turn the person to go away. And your next combo the best thing you will be getting is Pepperballs. Pepper balls are my very
    favorite, reason being, these ones are ten percent when you do hit this it’s
    very effective in the store, we have to pop it we have to evacuate the store
    And won’t be able to open. Even next Sore we would have to evacuate because it’s gonna go
    through the AIr con vents. Its quite powerful. now there is there are there
    any guns that really don’t look so militaristic like a gun more like a toy
    you know a real toy Something that doesn’t look so offensive
    yeah the coloration is more benign no pink ones yeah I think what it would be
    much better. On our BBs, we did have a pink one no lie. yeah you also
    have this like double-barrel shotgun another unit that just came in recently
    on the self defense range so the best thing about this is they actually
    concentrated on having a proper shotgun feature on this way it’s a double
    shot so how you gonna load this again you use a solid and a pepper you can
    eitherchoose between left right or twin shot with this gun here as
    well you can add a laser sight so at night You won’t have issues trying to
    find your target look at your laser light and attack with this gun here as well, you also have the same features that it has a laser light on it too so that the people
    can see the laser. All these guns whichever Gun has a bracket, it does allow
    you to see. Thats the mounting bracket for the laser. Now with this here, it also has a safety feature of keeping your gas and keeping
    your bullets in then laying your gun idle. …a scary situation comes through you press down here, and it’s ready to activate and then you ready to fire okay okay so
    you need to have your you know some in your pocket ready yeah with this gun you
    you do have to have ammo on you cuz it’s a proper shotgun feature so the only
    concentration I’m actually having two shots inside yes they wanted to keep the
    original feature of the shotgun and the gas can just drop it down here so with
    the allen key you just put it inside of ear twist it down yeah he’s gonna do check this moron as I
    see because okay so that cartridge, the co2
    cartridge goes right in there oh crap it in on the stock and then when you do
    need it yeah then exactly then you’re just gonna put our ties amid put your
    gun down have it loaded leave it down time call you need to use it you know
    it’s there yes stop activates and you need to find okay good you’re not
    letting gas leak out from you yes because you’re not gonna have that in
    the back of your mind thank you is there gas in my gun
    because the last thing you need is to use your gun there’s no gas over there
    and then you pull the chicken mechanics internet yeah and then of course these
    this takes a little more time to arm because it’s a it’s a larger your
    canister you have to screw it on the advantages of this is we do sell things
    like a valve, so how a valve works it actually sits on to your gas, on to your
    bottle and it’s an on and off tap. so you can have your bottle
    attached to your gun always if you close the tap which means there’s no gas leak,
    so the moment you need to use it, all you gotta do is turn your tap and you ready to
    fire so we can make it easy on you. This comes as well like we say time is very
    important assault fair situation you need to be able to act very fast without
    panicking without warning. emotion yeah I understand that these are used say like
    on the farms the guys use it on farms also you know open areas our guys use
    this a lot recently first of all guys don’t want to use they
    can is the first line of defense sadly you cannot just use your gun
    openly because there are also consequences to you you would be able to defend yourself without having the consequences of using
    A real gun. not to break a bone like these are it’s just it’s just a sting
    yes to get the message across like I have seen some YouTube videos where
    some people wanted themselves to be shot with the gas and they do it at like only
    about three meters and with no shirt on it’s my Hoy jeez and so what
    happens is they get a terrible big bloody hickey yeah it doesn’t really
    look like a hickey that constantly changes color. the pressure on these
    guns if you feel them on your bare skin it
    does but because the pressure is so high remember co2 is compressed air – it really
    does push up with a lot of pressure coming you can tear a piece of plastic
    easy to you with gas, yeah so even without without the bullet in it…. without a bullet inside of it…good for dusting around the house okay sadly I do not
    have the laser that I really would like to show you… it’s what’s used in the
    states a lot it’s the taser gun which is the only
    taser they can attack a person at 4 Meters away. it sends out to wires that hook on to you and every time you press the button in that thing sends a pulse out
    there so yeah so how it is you get the device itself and you get cartridges
    that you put inside now that cartridge shoots out 2 wires at a 4 meter distance it hooks onto you
    if you time you press the buttons the person gets zapped. In our country it’s legal because it’s not attacking it’s not killing the person who just puts a
    person down for you to have the advantage in the situation for you even move away or call the police. Now, bear spray actually do you call a bear spray well I know in the
    states that use it for bears but we call it Pepper Gel. Pepper gel is actually one of our newer things On the market. it’s much more effective
    than pepper spray. also in a windy
    situation I personally prefer the Pepper gel because it will not come back
    and hit you in the face… oh that’s the most remember something guys even if you’re
    Out on the ocean and stuff, you all have lots of wind constantly… if you spray
    that pepper spray it can’t hit you back in your face and the last thing you need
    is to spray yourself when you try to Defend yourself.. with a gel, you know
    it’s making direct contact anywhere on their face whatever it touches it’s
    gonna burn okay so it’ll stick to the person. Aim
    for the face – I suggest you aim for the face because that’s where you
    doing the damage yeah this is what the gel sticks to the person, so it’s more concentrated on the person. that’s why all guys don’t like sprays
    anymore because there’s too many people get affected in the situation of trying
    to defend yourself you cannot control Wind at the end of the day so with that wind it will come back. With the gel It will not come back at you. yeah it even says
    on the front safe to use indoors does not affect bystanders reduces wind blow
    back exactly on the pepper spray whether you’re using the paintball gun or even
    the in the canister up here that you actually pull a trigger on what would be
    an antidote to that if somebody got it in their eyes or you or I got it in our
    eyes how do we get rid of it quickly MILK. Water is a no no cuz it’s
    a base that actually sticks on to your skin so water actually makes it
    worse… it so the best thing you should actually use is milk. that’ll neutralize it yeah you know say like somebody leaving South Africa
    or it’s they want to play paintball in another country how difficult is it to
    carry a paintball gun in their check legged luggage depending
    on the customer the country you’re going to attend today for example if you go to
    Australia they don’t care what kind it is they will not allow it him because
    thier policies do not allow it there at the end of the day you’re not looking at
    our South African within South Africa there’s no issues with all guns
    whatsoever moving it you can see it’s a paintball Gun,l you push it through
    declared as a paintball gun the guys don’t have a problem with it. the
    countries it depends on the customs also the guys will not even allow it in most
    of the guys it looks so realistic for example our
    and customs the guys will never allow that in them because of how do you stick
    it is you got that Patrick that’s important
    look at the tip okay this indicates that it’s a toy or a regular paintball toy
    gun yeah it’s to show that that’s not a Real gun because the thing about airsoft
    is the look and the way it’s identical to the real one yeah something she’s
    actually sure that it is even something like this I mean this is small it it
    looks kind of like a toy in a way certainly not so intimidating like
    imitation this shoots the same ammunition same ammunition you can put a
    hopper here and dump a lot of idents any kind of ammunition you want
    exactly and the big tank comes off the back so it depends on you and your
    choice of Guns, you actually get up what I see or what you really want you
    can choose video thank you see this here does not look like a real firearm so by
    looking at this you can say it’s not a real fire okay then crossbows I mean
    this is a hundred and twenty pound bull crossbow I mean that’s powerful that’s
    really powerful when we were kids we had 45 pound and that was powerful enough
    with my target we actually stopped about 50 we got between 50 80 120 going all
    the way up to 140 so with the hundred 2150 the guys actually use it for
    hunting the rocks yeah damage it will definitely you looking at around
    plus/minus around four hundred fifty nine four pack of six now the good thing
    is as you can feel it is three point eight yeah what the top can be changed
    yes so if you want it to be a bit much area
    for example in the guys are using it for hunting etc we do use raise the head
    plates so this is that cuts right through
    anything okay and what is the cost of one arrow oh you said let me pack off
    six is fifty four hundred and fifty was about thirty dollars a chevron we’ve got
    to get you in here too but thank you you covered it pretty well all of our
    questions and more they will take you Chevron for helping us out thanks a lot
    and Rebecca wants to go play paintball now see you guys later there’s some very
    impressive non-lethal self defenses here I especially like the paintball gun
    would be pepper spray and glass breaker balls all to let those bad guys know if
    they should come aboard they should go find a safer career thanks a lot for
    watching I hope this video has been worthwhile for you if it has please give
    it a thumbs up and if you haven’t already click on the subscribe button

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Judge Point of Sail on a Boat

    September 12, 2019


    We’re going to take the boat slowly up through
    the wind, our jib sail, our main sail will start luffing, and the boat will sail flat.
    Bring the main in center. The next point of sail, we’re going to fall off, we’re going
    to go away from the wind. Keep an eye on our jib. Our jib will just fill up. Jib fills
    up we’re on a close haul. We’re not exactly keeled over right now then, just on the verge
    of it. The next point of sail will be close reach. The boat will start heeling and we’ll
    accelerate in speed. Ease the sails up. There she goes. That’s a close reach. See how the
    red ones are kind of jiggy. I call it. I’m going to let the sail out until they flow
    back. That will be our good trim. They used, you can see how just before they go backwards
    they go forwards. Now let it, right there is our good sail trim for this point of sail.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Safely Sail into a Marina

    September 9, 2019


    We are coming into the marina. In this marina
    we have a couple posts here and they are marked with red. Follow our rule, red right return.
    We want to keep it on our starboard side because everything on the other side of those red
    poles is very shallow. You can see the high water mark there so you know we are still
    at low tide. That should come standard with all the marinas. Most of them either have
    posts or a lot of them have little buoys that they’ll use. Actually there are some that
    have sticks in the water and they actually wrap tape around the sticks. It depends on
    the size of the marina. Again, coming into the marina you don’t want to come speeding
    in. It’s always better to come into the marina under power than sail. You have a little bit
    more control. In fact this part of the marina; in our marina they won’t let you sail into.
    Come in under power and then again keep an eye out for boats that are coming out. We
    have a lot of hidden fairways due to the houses so you always have to keep an eye out for
    boats coming around corners.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Tack a Sailboat

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Tack a Sailboat

    September 8, 2019


    Okay, right now we are on a port tack and
    what that means is that the wind is coming over our port side and the boom and the jib
    are over on the starboard side and as, as we, in order to go upwind we have to tack
    back and forth and change tacks and so we may want to go from a port tack, which we
    are on there, where the wind is on the port side, to a starboard tack where the wind is
    on the starboard side. And the way that we would do that, is there’s commands that you
    need to communicate with your crew and make sure that they know what you’re about to do,
    and the command is “prepare to come about”, and when they are ready, and I’ll explain
    that in a second, what that is, when they’re ready, they will say “ready”, if they’re not
    ready, they will say “no”, and as we, they will be ready when the person, you have a
    working sheet, the one on, which is on starboard right now, where Ed is, and is, that’s where
    the tension is on the jib sheet. And then you have a lazy sheet, or the one on port
    right now, where Kelly is. You see how it’s slack by the jib and so what we are going
    to do is, when we come about, Ed is going to have to release his side on starboard.
    Okay. And Kelly is going to pull in on her side, and “ready about”. “Ready”, Ed is over
    here, ready to release. “Ready”, and Kelly is ready to pull. And then the command is
    “Helm, to lee”, I am going to put, turn the tiller as, or the wheel, so that the boat
    turns into the wind. I’m turning into the wind now, and Ed releases and Kelly pulls
    it in on the other side. And as soon as the main sail is on one side, we release, we stop
    turning and we are sailing now on a starboard tack. And as you can see the wind is now coming
    over the starboard side of the boat, and the sails are on the, have changed sides of the
    boat and they are right now on the port side of the boat. “Helm to lee”. Okay, talk us
    through it Steve, talk us through it. Okay, the sail comes over on the aft, I put my additional
    wraps on at the very end. If you do it quickly, you don’t need to winch it in. I was a little
    slow on that tack, so I’m going to winch it in a little. When you are around the winches
    you want, you always want to keep the heel of your hand toward the winch, don’t point
    your fingers down here, keep the heel in that direction.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Jibe a Sailboat

    September 8, 2019


    Now, we’re going to do a jibe. Jibe is just
    the opposite of tacking. When you are tacking the bow of the boat goes through the wind.
    Now were going to jibe and the stern of the boat will go through the wind. The wind is
    coming behind us now so what were going to do is turn the opposite direction we’re going
    now. As we do this out there I’ll be giving the commands of prepare to jibe, and the crew
    will answer “ready”. The minute I’m ready to do the crew I will say “jibe ho”. At that
    instant there Steve will be pulling in on the main sheet. He will bring the main in
    until it’s centered. I will go ahead there and do the jibe then. Jibe, Ready, Ready,
    Jibe ho. Prepare to jibe. This is a jibe. Jibe ho. I say jibe ho, the trimmer will start
    trimming in the main, turn with slowly come around. Now I’m going to release the jib on
    the port side. Beam reach. I did, and now we’re headed back up toward to the wind. Before
    we were headed away from the wind. Kelly, what you?re doing right now is? Trimming in
    the main. Beam reached. Wind is coming right over the beam of the boat. It’s coming over
    the port side of the boat. We do have tell tales off on the main sail. Ok. We’ll have
    little bit heading back up to a close reach. Trimming the main.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Use a Sailboat Shower

    September 8, 2019


    Once you get to sailboats about this size
    the head also has showers in it. This sailboat, the sink faucet also serves as a shower head.
    It has a long hose, you merely pull the hose up, set the hose handle in its holder and
    then you would turn on your water at the same place you turn on the faucet. Take your shower
    and remember to conserve water because most sailboats only have twenty gallon water tanks.
    So you take this, the old fashion sailor showers. When you?re done, the water would have accumulated
    in the shower pan. And then there’s a pump to pump the water out of the pan and overboard
    and on this boat there’s a button here. You run the pump and it’ll pump all the water
    all out of the shower pan. And then you?re done, and you just need to put away the shower
    head back into the sink faucet position.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : Floorboard Safety Tips for Sailing

    September 3, 2019


    I’m Safe to go. It helps us get the boat ready
    to sail. We have, we’ve already gone through “F” for safety and “A” for atmosphere, we
    also have “F” for floorboard. Now, basically that, what that means is before you head out
    to sail, you need to check to make sure that the boat doesn’t have water in it. And, there’s
    some, so, what you need to do is lift up your floorboards and check to make sure we don’t
    have any water in there. And, this boat, as you can see, is pretty dry. A slight amount
    of water located in the bilge, it would be okay, but not a great deal. If you walk down
    below and you’re standing in two inches of water, it’s probably a good idea to abandon
    the sail for the day. And, so, could we turn this to its position. There we go.

    How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Use a Sailboat Toilet

    September 3, 2019


    On a boat, they call the toilet the head.
    So on this boat, this is what we call a head. It has the toilet in it and it has also a
    dual purpose shower. Now toilets or heads on sailboats are kind of a little complex
    animals, so there’s two parts to it. You have to be able to get fresh water in to flush
    the head and then you need to be able to flush it and the water needs to go somewhere. The
    majority of places in the United States require that you put all the waste from your toilet
    into a holding tank. They will not let you pump it out of the boat into the water. You
    need to be quite a ways offshore before they’ll ever let you do that. So on all the boats,
    there’s usually a valve like this one is this gray valve. That one switches between allowing
    the toilet waste to go into the holding tank versus overboard and its always set for the
    holding tank. So the other thing we have to do is make sure we can get fresh water in.
    And all the hoses on a boat like this have valves and you need to turn the valve and
    open up the water that goes to the toilet and we’ve done that. That’s down here. Perpendicular.
    So, every hose on a sailboat that goes out the boat through a through hole has a valve
    on it so you can prevent water from accidentally coming back in. This hose goes to the sink.
    Right now the valve is perpendicular to the hose that’s closed when you pull it up in
    line with the hose, it?s now open. So what we need to do before we use the head is take
    the hose that brings fresh water to the toilet which is down here in the corner and open
    that up which is already been done. So to use the head, it?s a three step process. First
    we switch out valve to let water in. It brings some water in to fill up the bowl. Then we
    can use the head and then to flush, we will pump the head clean using twelve pumps. Then
    we turn it to dry and we pump all the water out of the head. Then we’re done and then
    we’d go back to our hoses and we would shut the fresh water valve off so that the water
    doesn’t run into the toilet accidentally.
