    Aquarius Boat tour – AMEL Super Maramu 2000 / Sailing Aquarius #21

    January 19, 2020


    Hello! I’m captain Ken and I’ll be your
    tour guide today Aquarius is an AMEL Super Maramu 2000 She is 53 foot long with a 15 foot beam Her main mast stands 60 feet and she draws about 6.5 feet She’s a ketch rig sailing vessel built in La Rochelle, France in 1999 About 490 Super Maramu’s were built between 1989 and 2005 And the hulls remain virtually identical
    throughout the production Aquarius is hull number 262. The millennium edition or Super Maramu 2000 was first built in 1998 Though there were some minor upgrades and features all Super Maramu’s most look almost identical In 2000 the Super Maramu 2000 was voted best boat of the Year by Cruising World AMEL has produced some of the finest sailing vessels and each year a high number of
    AMEL’s complete a circumnavigation In 1999 Aquarius then “Aquarius 4” completed her first circumnavigation with the original owners Jemp and Lony Their journey is well documented in a book written by Jean Pierre Frederick (Jemp) The book has detailed history about all destinations and hundreds of fabulous photos So if you speak German you should pick up a copy One of the coolest things about owning an Amel Super Maramu is you’re part of the community Some people call it the AMEL cult and maybe it is to a degree That said, if you have a problem
    with an AMEL you have a fairly large community to back you up in your time of need So come on aboard Zivile and I would
    like to show you around and show you some of the unique features aboard
    Aquarius You are on your own now! Let’s first take a look at the cockpit or the terrace as Jemp used to call it It’s time to get ready for lunch So I will set up a table and cushions The terrace is where we have most meals aboard Aquarius Our new cushions, bimini top and all of our covers aboard Aquarius were made by Shawn in Trinidad Shawn is the owner of Superb Sails and Canvas Works He’s located in the Power Boats facility in Trinidad, where we were hauled out Superb Sails and Canvas Works did an amazing job on our cushions, bimini top and all the covers aboard Aquarius We’ve also met a few other AMEL owners that’s had work done by Shawn and they were also very
    impressed with Shawn’s work So if you get to Trinidad and you have any canvas requirements – Shaun is your guy your Zivile said I went overboard but I love my
    padded winch covers So here we have our forward looking
    sonar And what it shows is what’s in front of us to about 45 feet and the depth And you can see that the depth is about 3.3 meters and fairly steady all the way out Next I would like to show you the bow thruster which is one of the really cool features on the Amel Super Maramu Without a bow thruster I wouldn’t be able to park in a marina But with a bow thruster I can make parking look easy Here we are just leaving Trinidad we at Cruise In And you can see that the boat turns on a dime. This cannot be done without a bow
    thruster To operate the bow thruster turn the bow thruster ON To drop the bow thruster you drop the bow thruster with this switch Make sure it’s unlocked and ON in the forward cabin before dropping it This is the bow thruster on the AMEL Super Maramu So I’m gonna unlock the bow thruster turn the bow thruster ON Bow thruster is now ready to operate You can test it by using the joystick Bring it up by pushing out the UP button
    till the red light comes on. Turn it off and then off Let’s take a close look at what moves Aquarius when there’s no wind or in tight places At our cockpit we have the engine start So if you want to start the engine just start the engine
    up just like any other motor rev up in neutral by pulling and if you want to go forward you just push it forward In the engine room the first thing you see is a TMD 22 Volvo Penta engine The hearth transmission which is hooked to her and then the top of the C drive The auto prop re-positions the blades for forward; reverse and when sailing their lowest drag With no wind and calm seas Aquarius will move forward at about 6.5 knots at 1,800 rpms and while doing this burned 3.6 liters per hour of diesel Sailing around the world you think more
    about longevity and less about speed A skeg hung rudder is less maneuverable
    and a bit slower than blades but I haven’t heard of any AMEL’s loosing a rudder Just ask SV Delos about the strength of AMEL rudder We have a Furuno chart plotter; 2 completely separate auto pilots We’ve got all of our wind instruments and our chain counter and we have a little garden here going Zivile is trying to garden The cockpit control panel houses the anchor wash switch; the windlass
    control switch also the main and Genoa control switches Will talk about sail control later now let’s look at the ground tackle aboard Aquarius We have 70 meters of stainless steel chain connected to a roll bar anchor weighing 30 kilograms Aquarius was fitted with a 1200 watt tigress windlass which can be operated from the bow or can also be operated from the cockpit I thought you might like to see what it looks like as the anchor is lifted from the bottom and brought back aboard Aquarius The anchor chain is housed in a
    watertight compartment in the bow you have access through the forward cabin Our secondary anchor is located in the
    port bow locker It’s identical to the first anchor except it’s 28 kilograms
    there’s also engraved with Aquarius Our third anchor is a 9 kilogram Fortress So now let’s take a look at the salon the salon is the main living quarters downstairs from the cockpit and again you’re gonna see a lot of the work that Shawn did on the cushions He did an amazing job and again if you’re in
    Trinidad look him up because he’ll do the same for you The guy is meticulous That is a washing machine this is actually a small
    one, but it can you can load a lot It has 4 kilos we got it when we bought the
    boat in January in Martinique and it works well All Super Maramu’s hold 1000 litres of water and you can check your water level using a mechanical float in the salon I love the way the door closes on Aquarius and what amazes me is that more boat manufacturers don’t steal some of those great innovations that Amell
    thought up Next up the 24 volt panel: 3 switches for the interior lights; The next 3: instruments and winches the batteries are very important on an AMEL and the battery monitor is something you look at every single day to see the battery level and whether it’s charging or
    discharging right now we’re looking good These are for the 2 refrigerators one is
    empty top left is the anchor light and to deck lights the knob is to illuminate the cockpit compass and the next 3 buttons are for the navigation lights this is the remote switch for the gas bottles next is the bilge pump there’s
    also a float switch in the bilge that’ll turn it on as well and last the fresh water pump that’s always on Next up to 220 panel so there’s the battery charger; the hot water heater the dishwasher; 3 air conditioning
    systems; the washing machine the compressor which is not hooked up and what else we got here? oh we got the plugs so you can plug things in. We’ve got the microwave oven We also have a 1600 watt inverter which makes 220 volt
    AC from our 24 volt house batteries We have a Dessalator water maker it makes about 50 liters per hour The water maker runs up 24 volts it burns about 14 amps while making water During a nice sunny day we can make water without even pulling from the batteries but during the night it’s best to start the generator so let’s start the generator. So let’s start the generator and we will show you how to start up the water making Generator started, looks great let’s start up the compressor You need to wait a few minutes at low pressure before you start to pressurize your membranes We will pressurize it for a few minutes. so after you pressurize
    the membranes takes about three or four minutes then the indicator light will
    show you have good clean water and then you turn the valve so that all the water
    goes into your holding tank Aquarius is making water and yes we – have a working
    dishwasher Here’s our chart table we’ve got a SSB with a proctor modem; our radar system; all of our wind instruments radio; the VHF Then we’ve got our GPS and a computer with all the charts for the world clocks; barometer; another clock so now we’ll look at the operation of our Furuno radar Take a look and see if we can what we see now we’re on 0.25 nautical miles and what we’re seeing here is we’re seeing the boat next door
    and we’re seeing 2 cats (catamarans) and then all the other boats and then the shore along here let’s show you what that looks like on the outside Moving aft from the chart table we enter the companion way Companion way: extra bedroom it’s not very isolated It’s a walk thru, but it makes sleeping still good. and actually this is a good place to sleep, because when the boat rocks this is the least one where you can feel the rocking Under the bed in the companion way you find the house batteries One of the cool features when you sleeping in this bed you can look up through the window
    and see the helm You also have to shut off valve for your diesel; your fuel gauge and your 24 volt shut down for your house batteries As we move aft from the companion way we enter the master suite OK master bedroom; our bathroom our bed; our desk and our closets. This is our closet so they are pretty big, we don’t even use them all it’s just as always
    half empty, but we have enough of everything I told to myself that I can have as many sunglasses as I want; and as many swimsuits as I want That’s my hidden stash 7. That’s it! I think I need a few pair of sunglasses Next up the forward suite This bed we can get much wider I think as wide as this there is a
    little table, we never use it so anyways and here also we have a very
    important thing for this boat is a bow thruster And it’s hiding here Let’s go up top now take a look on deck our first major modification was to add davits with 600 watts of solar we also put a wind generator on the mizzen mast our AB dinghy looks pretty good parked in it’s little parking spot along with a 9.8 Tahatsu motor the life raft is located on the rails near the stern on
    the port side. It’s easily deployed We walk around the back of the boat you see
    our swim ladder the dinghy motor crane 600 watts of solar on our davits a throw tool for a man overboard that’s that yellow horseshoe there and what we hope to never use is the life raft Oh, that’s the antenna for the Iridium GO we have a yoga mat and we even have a yoga master omm… And the last room that we’re going to
    take a look at is the engine room and that is under the terrace We’ve already looked at the engine but let’s look at the rest of the stuff in the engine compartment our bilge and our bilge pump is down in here and on an original Super Maramu there was only one seawater intake and that would be this one right
    here that one is currently supplying both: the engine and the Onan (generator) exhaust coolant it supplies both heads and it supplies the chain wash One more seawater intake added by Jemp and this one here supplies the
    air-conditioning with the seawater cooling We also have 2 Racor fuel filters We’ve got our water heater; we’ve got the
    7 kilowatt Onan GenSet the 100 amp 24 volt charger we have a 1600 watt
    24 volt to 220 AC converter We have our accumulate right over here. We have our
    chain wash pump right here This is our desalinator pump, high-pressure pump these 2 pumps here are for both toilets: front and aft we have the filters for the desalinator here our membranes for our desalinator This is a 24 volt pump, which supplies
    all the fresh water on the boat These 2 pumps here are saltwater pumps. One
    of them supplies the air conditioning and this pump here will supply the
    coolant for the exhaust on the Onan Because Jemp decided it was too difficult
    to change the impeller on the Onan now if that pump goes bad we just change it and I have extra onboard 600 liters stainless steel fuel tank OK now it’s time to put Aquarius in the water and see how she sails Ok now let’s do a little bit of
    downwind sailing right now we have our Genoa out on port it’s poled out we also have a pole for the ballooner We pulling up the balloon now it’s going to
    lock in up top Now I want to show you another cool feature of AMEL’s the ballooner locks to the top with this little mouse note that there’s two
    tracks right next to each other right there now the mouse goes up the track
    and then it locks at the top with that little indent once it’s locked to the top and pull the halyard out so that you don’t have an extra halyard at the top of your mast so remember there were two tracks right next to each other one is for the ballooner and the other is for the other mouse but this mouse is a little
    different: this mouse doesn’t have the little indent this mouse goes up the track to free the other mouse bringing down the ballooner after we get the ballooner in place and lock it up, we drop the halyard Downwind sailing is fairly simple: you put your ballooner up and if the wind starts picking up you can actually furl your ballooner right over your Genoa So you can have as much or as little sail area out as you would like And you don’t need to leave the cockpit to furl your sails in, so everything is done inside the cockpit if you look close right now you can actually see that we’re letting out more sail Here is an AMEL flying a mizzen ballooner, which is similar to a Genoa on the mizzen. OK finally we let the cat out of the bag! Jemp had an asymmetrical spinnaker made for Aquarius. It’s the Luxembourg flag and we’ve got the chance to fly it when Jemp was there. He loved it! Now we got everything going! Yeah, we had some light air so I threw up all the sails to see what you could do Let’s look at how to operate the mizzen.
    That’s the outhaul, that’s the mizzen sheet and this is the furler And at the back you see the mizzen traveler Here I’m gonna show you how to take the mizzen
    out Pull it back in. Everything is done inside the cockpit, so you’re safe throughout the process Our sails are all made by Q sails and Q sails was the company I picked because Q sails only needed my hull number and they could make sales that fit perfectly Because I wanted just stock AMEL sails. I didn’t want anything special I’ve been so happy I picked Q sails to make our sails Now let’s talk about the main. The main sheet is on the mizzen mast, inside the cockpit You can tighten or loosen the main from the cockpit and it’s on electric winch Now let’s head out to the main mast. You can see the electric motor for the outhaul This is for the furler and here you can see the traveler sheet And you adjust the traveler from inside
    the cockpit. Yep, that is the main halyard right there Here’s the main outhaul. And here’s the main furler To take out the main first you have to be headed directly in to the wind. So with 2 buttons and inside the cockpit pull out the main So we’re taking out the main and Zivile looks very proud Now let’s look at the Genoa controls: the furler; the port winch and the starboard winch All right, you guys ready? Yep. All right,
    coming out O, oh! Stuck! OK, I’m gonna lock it in move over to my hand Just outside the cockpit you have the
    adjustment for the Genoa leads you can move them forward for downwind sailing or you move them back if you’re going up wind Aquarius has a very long track Long track longer track…. Hey where are you going? That’s it!

    FFXIV 4.58 1324 Fish In A Barrel (Beast Tribes)

    January 19, 2020


    and we’re back for another episode in
    this episode we’re going to be continuing to wrap up the storm blood
    beast drives and as always a lot of my free so we are carrying on in is sorry
    and the next quest is called fish in a barrel so Joel hem seems
    uncertain of how to proceed we can say we have some certainty that NAHASDA has
    made for IV yancha or the Azim step where he can only be up to no good but
    it’s also likely the Alpha has been imprisoned somewhere between here and
    Coogan II so which should we seek I would be happy to ask other members of
    the Divine Circle to search for your friend there are no finer seekers of
    treasure on the Ruby Sea and it was free us to continue tailing the thief hmm
    well I would prefer to see to our per se T myself I can’t deny that I am at a
    distinct disadvantage in these lands it probably would be better to leave the
    search to those more familiar with the area while P pursue Naza he’s after what
    was it now Philosopher’s Finn correct and if our assumptions awry that’s the
    only one left and we know he’s not too particular as to whether he lays hand on
    the real thing Miffy do you have any idea what could
    pass for the Philosopher’s Finn a glance the fin of a from sorry
    so get sue the enlightened he talks enough a fin from guy okay he seems an
    easy to kidnap saw analysis Peaks and articulately
    at that yes he does sound like a prime candidate what say what you say is true
    but one could easily call all of the damn asou who have mastered the common
    tongue finned philosophers we cannot count on our
    villain to be so selective nor do we know if he makes for you Zuka mana or
    raava dora alloy so we see Obregon tiana are we going to same step
    well if potential thin philosophers can be found in either location I suppose
    we’ll have to split up and cover both I’ll take use you come on earth mazurkin
    come with me if only so that I can keep him from
    accidentally injuring anyone himself included anyway I’m sure the locals will
    be able to point us in the right direction okay so I guess that means
    we’re going to Azim step then we’ll hasten to doha aloy I only hope that we
    arrive in time okay so thankfully we can teleport straight there so we don’t have
    to travel and insane distance well let’s go okay let’s talk to him so I heard heard word of the festivities
    taking place here but I wasn’t aware that they would be so extraordinary so by the big one our comrade in fins you
    are here to assist with our new project yes yes
    our latest greatest event I interpret that as I haven’t the foggiest idea of
    what you speak so allow me to explain for Allah we are currently planning our
    most ambitious event today an exceedingly cultured performance based
    on the beloved Carol of elds Grey kings of Orient we have spread word of our
    upcoming masterpiece far and wide from Coogan eighty on Tia
    so doubtless a great many will be in attendance by the by sir is rare to see
    one such as yourself here on the steppe am I correct in assuming that you are an
    ambassador of the Kotian tribe and how might I address you
    my name is Kabuto I am indeed a cogent of the blue and the
    leader of the divine circle we typically pursue treasure but our quarry today is
    a villain whom we suspect is searching for the Philosopher’s Finn we have
    traveled here to stop him before anyone comes to harm oh oh are you perchance
    speaking of the philosopher’s thin as detailed in new records of ancient Mars
    one of the three wonders fascinating but why seek it on the Azim step a quite
    certain I’m quite certain records make no mention of location so ah so naturally having spoken to me
    free you concluded that I would most readily be identified as a source of the
    requisite Finn esteemed as I am indeed there could hardly be a more obvious
    choice for thinned philosopher wait wait I seem to recall from our many many
    discussions that the philosopher will not be played by you Gaea Fuu Sogetsu
    the enlightened we decided on a guy array for that role remember and if we
    already made that costume to fit her the role of philosopher perhaps we should
    hear more of this new event of yours oh very well in our upcoming performance
    we reenact the journey to the west made by free kings in days of yore Gaia
    Ray has been chosen to dress as the philosopher king one would think that
    the namazu best suited for said role would be I forget sue the a Mayan most
    erudite and learned amongst us renowned author of a meditation on the
    metaphysics of merrymaking but Gaia shin continuingly insists that’s it
    neither must have heard about the performance and learned that it would
    include a philosopher that is why he made for the Azim step he also knows
    that she would have been selected for the role of philosopher king a gaya will
    be in grave danger where is she now if I recall correctly
    she spoke of traveling to the dawn throne to retrieve ritual offerings from
    the arena’s stock we’ve been running low as someone keeps partaking without
    authorization and we must make for the dawn thrown at once with me I was not really following that no no
    but I am most confident that guy Ray’s fins should remain attached to guy ray
    she needs those it’s all well and good for Gaussian to sprint off to big one
    knows where but it’s hardly advisable for me to leave the festivities
    unsupervised I’ll remain here an informed guy array of the situation
    should she return okay so let’s teleport now to the dawn throne okay so we shouldn’t have too far to
    travel yep so I left so goodness how kind of the Orang are to
    share so much food with us it will take more than a few nano zooty through all
    of this thankfully so oh hello can I help you with something yes yes I’m
    supposed to believe that’s the face of a philosopher by suppose the Finns offend
    and the client won’t know any better and so in you go he’s mean what was the meaning of this
    let me out no stop he really was after guy who raised
    Finn’s and now he has both of them okay let’s talk to guy efficient so he
    put her in a barrel the horror the indignity what do we do we should speak
    with our comrades are you Zuka manner they need to hear this and may have an
    idea where the house’ would take his ill-gotten treasures can you contact
    them Miffy so nothing to report here have you had any luck he’s kidnapped a
    namazu named guy array that’s no good he’s got all three of the wonders in
    hand then but if we are to assume this it sorry his son in quest for the free
    wonders and the young lady’s wedding dowry are connected and there’s a good
    chance that he will revisit who Ghani at some point whoever to present the items
    to her or to her would-be sua he would have to retrieve Alfa beforehand of
    course meaning that we finally have a chance to get ahead of him we can return
    to Ghana first and be ready to snare him when he arrives
    lesson 1 de vous in Kagame I say by colas in I’ll see you there what did joel him suggest later – Gugu
    nay it could work but we will need to return posthaste
    we should tell a guy who say get sue the enlightened first I am sure that he will
    have many many force in the situation maybe even a helpful one very well we
    will speak to him before we depart he is doubtless worried – by gar a had it
    would be unkind to leave him wondering ok so I’ll assume we have to teleport
    straight back yes we do so let’s go awesome okay so here’s guy ocean so I
    will find a zoo get sue the enlightened and be right back so gaijin has surprised me of the ill
    news and you intend to apprehend the culprit Kagame yes if we travel fast
    enough we should succeed in reaching the city before NASA job does I’ve always I
    always had my travel hammer travel all travel spinning wheel and travel and
    Ville pack too just in case I am prepared ready to go yes yes the sack
    will be a tight squeeze were both of us but if you put so getsu in headfirst and
    me in tail first stop right that guy Chen exactly what are an artisan and a
    member of the literary meant to do against an opponent who has foiled even
    me free for us to blunder in without a stratagem would be the height of folly
    no you ought to journey ahead to Kagame lest the hazards arrive sooner than
    expected meanwhile I shall devise an in flail
    abour plan based on principles laid forth in the smart of war we shall join
    you anon I do not know what those principles are not even a little bit no
    no but I will join you if you think it will help get a guy array back Oh what
    could he be playing okay so that’s complete okay next quest is called a wonderful
    world we’ll get the gratis sorry gratuity emo
    so Kabuto is more than ready to depart for kugali so it might serve us to have
    a clear idea of who gets ooh the enlightens plan but we can’t sorry we
    can wait no longer to the park um we should hasten to put Cairo in okay so
    let’s go okay so we made it so let’s arrive so you to make good time we left fuku
    Ghani just after I spoke with you and only arrived a short while ago ourselves
    have you been able to learn anything of nas’s we were successful in returning to
    Pagani ahead of time though not by much he’s already made port we saw dock
    workers hauling a large barrel and screwing sack from his skiff under the
    his clothes watch unfortunately so whatever his plans are they’re likely
    already in motion the prisoners where has he sent them
    there is a large vessel docked in Pier one it seems alpha and guy array have
    been taken aboard I have Mazhar keeping an eye on the situation I saw that ship
    when we arrived it’s unmistakably the core of Bora Maru if I recall correctly
    the merchan Kageyama purchased it for a hefty sum some time ago Kageyama you say
    and who might that be among easily as vile as Naza job himself
    he once conspired to take Haqqani Castle holding the Baguio hostage as he made
    lew distress or just let’s say ridiculous demands though forted he used
    his wealth and influence to escape justice he has taken to using this
    tactic recently he said in pursuit of a bribe spending more Gil than most will
    ever see in his attempt to snare the perfect woman a Brydon well I think we
    found NASA jobs esteemed employer so how long me free it is I you know
    your favorite my coat a dashing good looks ladies man future
    none of the em tribe yes well I’m afraid that we have a problem one that requires
    our immediate attention that’s why I contacted you it’s vital that you hear
    this as soon as possible I’ve been due to Li a keeping watch by
    the kuru borough Maru and Alper and the namazu have just been brought out on the
    deck we don’t have much longer until our mermaid becomes mermaids flesh I would
    love to continue this little chat we’re having but I rather think you should
    come to the harbour right away was I was at this is our last chance and we must
    stop Naza once and for all okay let’s go okay here we are so there you are we
    must hurry Alper is a dear friend and I won’t have
    turned into mince by some scheming and rather unattractive I must say villain so my flesh the philosophers Finn and the jewel of
    their souls with this she can no longer deny me and what a pretty thing she will
    be beside me at Sawle matrimonial feast I can taste it now I couldn’t possibly
    care less about what you intend to do with the goods so long as I am fairly
    compensated i speaking of payment i think it’s time that we finish off here
    I need only carve the meat nice not a chance find a co-op of you but I doubt you have
    much more to offer this time around so Joel him that was dirty what afraid
    you couldn’t defeat her in a fair fight I merely preferred to spend my time on
    foes are actually worthy or at least suitably entertaining but if any of you
    believe you will present a greater challenge than by all means very well I
    will defeat you myself and have you returned to school mo here and now I see
    them they are most visible so ramming speed yes yes aha fail nailed it that whistle it’s the Sousa goomy then
    the gods of Kagome pity I was just beginning to feel a
    twinge of excitement but I see I must take my leave so farewell Eastern beastmen the civil
    chase has been most amusing perhaps you may entertain me again someday but this time as a future nun and a
    friend of Joe him and Alper both I cannot let these crimes go unanswered so trust me sometimes you have to learn
    the hard way seven hells oh well oh now we find one
    that has with no powder huh as if explosives would save the
    adventurers gaggle of misfits yeah again they’re gonna be in a life nice it’s
    calmer isn’t it there is what you already got that face
    mask Oh God in a ROM reborn I doing the quest friends forever
    I wrapped up all the beast right quest for the wrong reborn so now we only need to ensure the car
    yama meets with justice at the hands of the Tsugumi that may pose a problem
    where has a keel slipped off to so he makes four coog on a dowry me free with
    me we can meet at the pakoras in afterwards I will carry the wounded
    there we’re counting on you nice so let’s go okay here we are so you need not push yourself alpha you
    have only just been freed from what must have been a very trying ordeal I’ll be
    fine as captain of the valid daeun gatekeepers I can’t let evil go
    unpunished so there so what how did you well no matter you
    have followed me this far but no further purpose of Kagame behold my loose change
    Oh free money so part of me saw that if you could move a bit to the left ma’am
    it is imperative that we capture this villain they’re not listening
    aha ah just look at them scrounging up my feet it pays to be wealthy please
    leave this to me you’re wasting your time Little Mermaid
    I am a master of monetary manipulation and if no one is easier to control than
    coin starved commoners so what is the meaning of this Oh cruel
    fate why do you mock me well done but why a fish I saw one on the Namas UN’s
    strange contraption earlier it was so cute I just couldn’t stop thinking about
    it I don’t even like fish whatever man I’m out of here
    subscribe to PewDiePie so I believe it is time that you accepted your fate yes
    I think that’s quite enough escape attempts one day you’ve made it
    perfectly clear who the villain here is right my cert guy Tsugumi friends so you
    can’t do this to me I have a woman to coerce a matrimonial banquet to consume the swords bigger than me free it seems
    that the matter is resolved at last we shall go and inform the others okay let’s go okay here we are so the innkeep was kind enough to call a

    REJSE TIL SYDNEY – 4. Del – Bridgeclimb, Bondi Beach, Watsons Bay & Sydney Tower

    January 19, 2020


    Time for another heritage-listed structure – It’s Sydney Harbour Bridge It opened in 1932 after 9 years of building Besides the operahouse Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most iconic structures in Australia The bridge connects Sydney CBD with Northshore, and is the Worlds 6th biggest arch bridge But nr. 1 regarding height, which is exactly 134 meters Today we’re going on a bridge climb Going all the way to the top – 134 meters from the water The tour will take approximately 3,5 hours And that sounds just so exiting Right mom? Yes really exiting I’m completely sure the view will be of all of Sydney On this tour I won’t be taking anything with me. It is not permitted with the risk of it falling down from the bridge But there will be some pictures taken on the tour, which you are going to see We reached the top of Sydney Harbour 134 meters from the water and this tour has been fantastic. We highly recommend it. Fantastic! That was bridgeclimb here in Sydney. Fantastic experience One of the best experiences in Sydney if you’re taking this tour. We can highly recommed it. It’s worth all the money, and it’s not just a walk up the bridge It’s with historic tells about the building of the bridge and and funny anecdotes from the building proces and then there is a huge security system and procedures going through First we sign a lot of terms and conditions and your health status We got a suit handed out. All loose objects are not permitted such as phones, hats jewelry or videocamera We had to lock it in a closet Of course we got safety equipment. That came as no surprise But walking through an airport scanner, that surprised me probably to make sure we didn’t bring any devices with us The service was exellent It was really good Yes it was really good I didn’t expect all that security I thought we could just go up there with our own clothes But no… the security level is high They even had a simulator in here of the stairs, so you could pratise the walk wearing the safety equipment It’s very professional Safety is top notch And… At last we recieved Certificate Climber Certificate – Mark Joergensen has succesfully climbed the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Certificate proving that I mangaged to climb all the way to the top of the bridge As you might see on the cap we went bridgeclimbing yesterday And what are the plans for today? What are the plans? Was it the beach? You want to go to the beach today? Good idea. What about ‘Bondi Beach’ Australias… no Sydneys largest beach Oh… our breakfast is here That’s me… wow! What is that, Anders? Yogurt? Granola and yogurt With berries That looks delicious How much is that, Mark? 14-15 dollars Tomorrow I will order that – That looks very healthy Today we’re going to ‘Bondi Beach’ And there is a bus line from Sydney CBD directly to Bondi That’s very easy The bus is decorated for Christmas Haha! Very nice Here they celebrate Christmas for a long time Far into January The weather could be much better today I think the tempeture is about 24-25 degrees But very cloudy That’s how it is – ‘Bondi Beach’ is a must before we travel home again We have now arrived to ‘Bondi Beach’ It’s sunny, even though it doesn’t look like it That’s because all of the smoke from the bush fires are pulling over Sydney blocking the sun We actually have 25 degrees, but the blue sky is gone When taking into account the chill factor we probably end up with 15 degrees, haha! It certainly looks beautiful. Big beach, lots of space and wonderful waves We will have to try it The water should be about tweeenty degrees. Still better than in Denmark Now I made it into the water It’s just as cold as the water in Denmark during the summer Not as warm as we hoped for, but now we have tried it. ‘Bondi Beach’ one of the most popular beaches in Sydney But the waves are very good I can officially say that I’ve tried winter swimming in the beginning of January It’s cold! Even for Australian standards I don’t know about Anders, I don’t think he will swim anymore today No I was out to my knees, and it was so damm cold It is of course… the open sea out there Yes it’s The Pacific Ocean And in that direction you’ll find Antarctica Maybe that’s were the cold comes from Oh there’s an iceberg ahead We are missing the warmth. You should think an iceberg is floating out there with a little exaggeration But it is cold right here. The wind is of course strong and the sun doesn’t come through the smoke. We do have 24 degrees, but the chill factor makes it feel a lot colder At the positive side the wind makes your hair fit perfectly We are having a relaxing time at ‘The Bucket List’ at ‘Bondi Beach’ having some refreshments I chose Gin & Tonic this time, and Anders chose this time an Australian beer I just saw ‘Heineken’ on the tap, and I didn’t know the other ones So I said I would like a Heineken No No… We can’t have that. He therefore poured 4 glasses of samples After finishing the different samples, I found the beer I liked, and he filled up a new glass for me. Haha! That’s what I call ‘Service’ We are sitting here. Unfortunately the weather has been plagued by smoke from the bush fires outside Sydney The UV radiation managed to strike me, but the tempeture didn’t go higher than 25 degrees And the water is prabably about 20 degrees A little cold experience But it was nice visiting ‘Bondi’. Everybody speaks about it, and you can’t travel to Australia without going here Even though the weather is like this It was a good experience You managed to take a dive Yes of course. After all, I’m a viking Yes I’m sure you are Cheers! I believe Anders is over the moon They serve Pizza. Anders hasn’t eaten Pizza for a couple of days He must be starving But here you can build your own There are… different steps Of course I chose the big size Then you build it up You can choose many different elements behind the glas Step 3 – What kind of cheese What kind of seasoning Chosing your meat Chosen your topping Step 7 is probably extra topping Many things behind the glass I have finished building mine It’s right over there It’s about to be grilled Yeah! It will be good That’s the way Anders likes to have his Pizza done At open fire Everything is over My inside is empty and shattered In my head, I have to stop. But my heart won’t give up on you Aw aw aw aw aw This is the last day in Sydney Probably the next-to-last time at ‘Cellinis’. I think we can make it tomorrow It’s the last day of making memories in Sydney But now we’re going to have breakfast together with Gemma Tomorrow she’s is leaving early in the morning We fly about 2 pm. We have to be in the airport 12 pm So we might make it for breakfast one last time That’s the way it is The coffee is here Yai! the coffee is coming NO! it’s TEA AWW! We still have a whole day to enjoy and see things So far, it is suggested that we take a trip to Watsons Bay It should be a beautiful place with beaches, cliffs and view of Sydney and The Pacific Ocean Hopefully not as much sun as yesterday even though it was blocked by smoke Again! It was totally cloudy at ‘Bondi Beach’ and yet the UV radiation managed to penetrate the smoke Then this happent We hope for cloudy weather today It should be the coldest day this week If I can just check it Today they promise rain and thunder And 25 degrees That’s the way it is “Good day” to go out in nature and wandering around in the rain We’ll have to see how it goes. The weather forecast here is usally wrong The tempeture usally gets higher Rain is rare here I believe we have had rain 2 times And primarily at night Tonight we are doing something very exiting. We are going to have dinner at Sydney Tower The higest structure in Sydney I hope for a view of whole Sydney without smoke like yesterday when it was difficult to see The special thing about this restaurant is that it should rotate It will be a 360 degree view of Sydney – Very fantastic. We are looking very much forward to it We have said goodbye to ‘Kelly’ the boss of ‘Cellinis’ Because tomorrow we won’t be able to see her. We arrive very early for breakfast, and she meets late so we said goodbye today Oh no So sad But now we are here at ‘Watsons Bay’ with a cosy little beach at the wharf and it should be very nice farther up There is a walking route with cliffs and view of Sydney and The Pacific Ocean There should be a well known lighthouse as well They have canons here This is something telling the history of ‘Watsons Bay’ I would imagine ‘Watsons Bay’ being the port of Sydney It’s the first piece of land when coming at sea towards Sydney It is therefore ideal to use this as a defence This lighthouse is the second oldest in New South Wales, Australia Finally in 1948 electricity was installed here So far they have used gas burners to light up the lens making the light towards the sea But in 1948 electricity was installed and as said, the second oldest lighthouse in NSW and still in use This has definitely been part of the defence of Sydney This can probably rotate It’s a strategic location here at the port of Sydney Harbour So probably… this was a great spot for shooting with cannons against the enemy When looking here you’ll see the trenches into the rocks That was for the soldiers to get around without being hit by the enemy Lovely place we’ve found here at Camp Cove Kiosk getting some nice refreshments Who do we have here? Anders and mom You have got a blueberry/mango smoothie Ahh mango I have got a mango/banana smoothie Anders is going the traditional way with Cola and breakfast from 1886 You are being cultural I didn’t know I have become a dad Oh yes! You can be a dad in many ways As they say This building with the clock as you might see it used to be the highest building in Sydney But the city has grown a little since The building has almost disappeared today This is the last evening in Sydney Therefore we are doing something completely extraordinary Sydney Tower This is the highest place in Sydney for dinning and the highest point in general With spire 309 meters high Try looking at this view That’s the harbour, and it’s right down there we went for celebrating New Year I’ll try pointing it out There There it was… oops That’s because the tower is rotating…there Maybe we should mention that this is a 360 degree restaurant The floor is moving round the tower The view is constantly changing the whole evening It was difficult holding the camera duo to the floor moving, but not the windows We thought we had to try it. And this is how it looks like. As you might see the restaurant is round otherwise it couldn’t rotate We will spent our last evening here with the view of whole Sydney We will go round a couple of times This is a buffet restaurant Here you’ll find the desserts The dishes are placed in the inner circle – Here are some other dishes Going a little further you’ll find some more dishes And one more All these dishes are changing location to us Because they are placed in the stagnant part of the tower This is not moving, but if I step out here at the seatings It’s rotating I’ll get to all the dishes again you just saw before, if I keep standing here But I won’t, because we only got 1,5 hour to eat before going down again I will continue my dinning We have finished our dinner at the top of the tower 360 degree view 309 meters high That was the last planned thing on our vacation in Australia The last attraction to experience We’ll spend the rest of the evening in the hotel It’s still 26 degrees But we must pack our luggage for tomorrow Ohh long flight 27 hours of flying home But it’s has been nice of you to comment or follow the videos we have made Maybe it has been an inspiration for your next vacation We will definitely come back again Be well – Goodbye see you in Denmark

    SHIP Interview Eloise Dennis

    January 19, 2020


    I had seen SHIP offering this service
    and I thought I think that’s the way to go so I called them and I was on board Being an octogenarian and not receptive to change We just stayed with the current carrier we had for our Medicare supplement and soon found out that after a year there were many differences in the premiums so I thought well this is worth
    a little comparative shopping I was not too adept at navigating the
    government website but I had seen SHIP
    offering this service and I thought I think that’s the way to go and there was
    an office right at the hospital so I called them and I was on board
    and I had my first appointment and oh what a neat experience to walk in and find that my counselor was going to be
    a former fourth-grade student but she soon was very efficient
    at making a comparison of the different premiums out there
    for the prescription insurance and it didn’t take long to decide that I could
    certainly be having a benefit to change the carrier One year a drug was $41 the next year it was $3 with another company This doesn’t seem right but it’s so and so it was to our benefit that the Medicare counselor was able to head us in the right direction but what was interesting was every year
    I went back and almost every year it was
    to our benefit to change carriers and I know there are a lot of people out there who say well I have to choose between
    food and my prescription and I think these
    past two years the other prescriptions are never more than $2 or $3 and had it not been for the counselor
    we would not been aware of that I think unfortunately there’s things out there
    that elderly do not understand and we often discuss how difficult
    it must be for some of the retirees to understand these programs
    and they never knew how much benefit they could have if they had used the
    Medicare counselor and found out that there was
    considerable savings there to be had State health insurance assistance programs Available in your area Local, unbiased, and trusted Medicare help visit www.shiptacenter.org
