    Changing trailer wheel bearings

    August 24, 2019


    Hey there DangarStu here. Today’s
    videos is on changing the wheel bearings on a boat trailer and of course is for
    entertainment purposes only. Now the reason I say that is because
    jobs like this, if they go wrong, they do have reasonably serious repercussions,
    potentially, you can be traveling on a freeway doing 100 kilometres an hour towing a boat so this needs to be right in order to to make sure no one gets hurt. Ideally after watching a video like this,
    if you’ve never done this job before, try and find someone who has to sort
    of sit down and do it with If you watch the video and you get the
    idea of all the steps in the process, but it’s good just have someone sort of
    double check what’s going on. Sometimes are you doing a job for the first time you learn a certain amount fro the video but you don’t know what you don’t know
    if you know what I mean. You may not necessarily know when something’s not feeling right or not
    seeming right because you don’t have any reference point for it and that’s where
    it’s really nice to sit down with someone who has done the job. So having
    said all that will get into it now. I will go through all the steps and I’ll also go through some steps to check the job at the end of hopefully they’ll give
    you more confidence in the job you’ve done by changing these bearings but once again if
    you’re in any doubt at all please get the advice of a professional before you hit
    the road. Before we jack the trailer up take off the center hub cover and just
    crack the wheel nuts. It’s much easier when the wheel can’t spin to get those
    things done. Most trailers will just have a cover
    over the axle nut here. In this case we’ve got these bearing buddies on, and they’re quite good, particularly for
    marine trailers. They’re just a spring-loaded mechanism that has a
    greased nipple in it so you fill it with with grease which pushes the spring out and slowly
    over time it just keeps pressurize grease going into the bearings so they’re a nice upgrade for a trailer and we’ll talk a bit more about them later but for now we
    need to get it off. A pair of multi grips like this can
    be the go, this one I actually took from the other side it was quite tough to get
    off. So to get this off all I’m going to do is just tap a little bit around the edge of it. So there we go, no damage, nice and round still, just an easy way to get it off if it is that stuck. Next thing I’m going to do is just crack all these wheel nuts. So I’m just making sure they’re all starting to turn reasonably freely before I get the wheel off the ground. All right, now we’re set to jack it up I’m going to use a floor jack to jack this
    up, but I am going to use a block of wood on top of it just because I need to get
    it a little bit taller and this jack stands not very tall so it’s sitting on a set of blocks. This is a very flat concrete surface so I’m pretty comfortable with the stability of
    all of this and I’ve also got the trailer attached to the car still, so
    it’s not going anywhere. If you don’t have the trailer attached to the car
    just chock the far wheel to give it a bit more stability. Lower the trailer slowly so the jack
    stand takes the weight, and then just leave the jack in place. Obviously we’re not
    getting under the trailer, we’re working from the side here, but you can’t be safe
    enough with this kind of stuff. Because I’m incredibly lazy I’m just gonna use this rattle gun to get this off, but because you broken them before, pretty easy to get them off with handles as well. With all the wheel nuts off now the wheel will just come off. If it is a
    bit stuck just given it a bit of a hit top or bottom from behind just to get off from the corrosion. Now
    we’ve got our brakes to deal with here. These are looking very nasty and rusty. We inherited this trailer quite recently and it’s well overdue for a bit of care. Around the back behind the hub here, Be carefully when sticking your head in here because if the trailer drops, it’s gonna hurt but what we’ve got is one nut here and you
    can see about 15 mil socket on here. This is a little bit corroded so I’ve had to hammer this socket on a bit, but you could definitely clean it up with a wire wheel
    or something and then below its just under that spring is the second that’s holding this brake pad bracket on. So we’ll take this off, take this bracket off, and then we can get this rotor off Once that first fastener is off, the bracket here is free to rotate. I might have to get a spanner in for this next one because it is directly
    across from the springs so I can’t get the impact gun in, or a socket for that matter. Now, not all trailers have brakes, and if they don’t have brakes then your job’s gonna be a lot
    easier than this, and while I’m undoing doing this it’s pretty good time to say I
    saw some viewers out on the water the first time ever last week coming
    out of Brooklyn channel, so, hello to you whoever you were Shame we didn’t get a change to chat. Nasty. So if you don’t have brakes, this
    is pretty much where you’ll start. You’ll take the wheel off and you’ll have a hub
    with some wheel studs on it, you just won’t have the disk rotor. It will probably be a slightly different shape but very similar in principle. With the assembly
    all still together, now is a good time to show you that you shouldn’t have any play in
    this hub at all. It should turn but it shouldn’t be able to rock it top to bottom or
    left to right. So for example, if you’ve got a while like this where it’s flopping around really, really badly then you know you’ve got bearing trouble and obviously this
    is an extreme case but even the slightest wobble is an indication that something’s up with your bearings. So what I do now is take this axle nut off. This castellated nut is on the end of the axle here holding this hub on and has a split pin through here, very
    similar to the nut on the end of a propeller shaft. So just gonna straighten this pin knock itthrough a bit and then lever it out. These nuts
    generally aren’t done up too tight. If they are it stops the hub turning and this is a 32
    mil. So split pin off, nut off, washer behind here. I should have grabbed a screwdriver but never mind, and washer, and in here this is the outer bearing and the bearing race is pressed into
    this hub and lots of nasty old grease. You can pull this all out as one unit or
    we can take this bearing out doesn’t really matter. Now, this hub we can just
    pull off, and I’ll show you that closer in a minute. Then what we’re left with is
    the bear axle now. So this is the bare axle now. This top surface here is where the oil
    or grease seal runs. Then we have the larger inner bearing runs along here, then the small outer bearing runs along here and then here’s the, see if we can get this to focus, this is where the axle nut goes on in the hole where the split pin goes through. The next
    thing we have to decide is what type of bearings we want. In Australia there are two main types. As you’ll see this one says a Holden type and this is a Ford type. I don’t
    know what they’re called overseas. Holden is a General Motors subsiduary, so I guess they’re probably GM ones in the states, maybe Opel or
    something in Europe, but that’s what they’re called in Australia. Now the biggest difference between them is that they’re for different sizes. So if we see here, we’ll see on the
    top of that one it’s, trying to read that backwards now, bearing suits
    39 millimeter which is the Holden type and this one says bearing size forty
    five millimetre so the inner diameter is larger in the Ford type but their outer diameters are exactly the same so they’ll both press into the the same hub, you don’t need different hubs, so the outer on the Ford and the Holden are the same, but the Holden has a smaller axle diameter. So we’re going to measure the axle we’ve got here and that way we know we’re using the right one
    obviously I have them both he’s so I could just tested them but if you’re
    ordering them it’s good to do this measurement just to make sure you get the right one sent out. So take these calipers pop them on here. We’ll see we’ve got about a 46.6, so take away a bit of galvanised coating and some grease etcetera and we’ve pretty much gotta a 45 mil square axle.
    And so we look at this type and it’s 45 square axle so we’re after the Ford type bearings for this trailer. So on the very outside here the first thing you’ll come across is the oil seal designed to keep all
    this gunk in. So that was a lot harder to get out than it should have been, but once again
    largely due to the fact that hasn’t been serviced a long time regular maintenance certainly goes a long way. Inside here we’ve got the inner bearing and all that’s left in here now is the
    inner and outer races which is what the bearings run against and a whole lot of really old nasty grease. We’ll clean this out and then we’ll punch out the old races. To start with I’m just going to take a rag and scoop out the
    bulk of this old grease then I’ll just give it a little squirt with brake cleaner which I use for just about everything given we buy it by the drum. Inside the hub now
    you can see this section here which is the inner race, the larger inner one and then
    on this side you got the smaller outer race. So we need to get a punch and
    punch those out. They’re in quite tightly so it does take a bit of force to get them
    out, but what you’ll notice is this one obviously comes out this way, the
    short way, and if you look down through here you’ll see this just a little, a little lip
    here and that’s what we’re looking to get a punch on to and hammer to push it out that way and the same this one. This is a lip on this side we’re going to use
    that to pull them out. I’m going use this bit of metal rod to punch this out. Often I find it’s best if you rest the punch against this part of the hub and angle it across to the lip of
    that race on the far side that way the punch is kinda wedged in quite well and it
    won’t slip off that edge as readily. Lots and lots of hammering away at that outer race and it’s not budged at all so I’m gonna put a bit of heat on this hub just trying to the hub to expand a little bit more then we’ll get back to using the punch to try and get it out. It seems a bit of a theme on this channel
    not being able to get corroded parts apart, but you know, that’s salt water for you. That is the most stuck I’ve ever seen a bearing race. All right, we’re getting there. This race is now flush with the outside so I can’t do it on the ground any more. I’m just going to put up in the vice and tap it out the last way. Yay! Both the inner and outer races are out now and you can see the sections inside the hub where they go are both clear. Now it’s time to put the new races in. So this is the kit we had earlier which is the Ford-type marine bearing
    kit. So be aware, I’m not sure if I emphasized it but make sure you do buy marine bearings
    if it is for your boat trailer. I’ve got another kit arriving this afternoon that
    also has the dust caps in it, but in this kit you’ve got the oil seal which comes as
    a two part unit and the two bearings so these are the new races that are on top of
    the bearings and we’re gonna use the old races to press these in. The races have a thick side and a
    thin edge here so they’re are sort of cone shaped and you want it so the thick
    edge goes down that way the bearing itself can slide in. If you put it in this
    way you can’t get the bearing in behind it so you gotta make sure you put it in the
    right way which is the flared wide section pointing up with the thin edge here
    pointing outwards so that you can drop the bearing on top. Before I press this in I’ve cleaned this surface up a little bit. If your hub is particularly bad just buy new hubs.They’re mostly reusable but when they get to a certain
    point if this bearing for example sits into easily it’ll spin inside here, it needs
    to be a tight fit. The hubs just aren’t that expensive so if you
    decide it’s time to retire existing ones so be. It to start with I’m just gonna
    hammer around until it starts going down square and once it flush that’s when
    I’m gonna start using the old race to push this one in deeper. Before I start
    hammering it in, these other kits arrived and the big difference here is they don’t
    come with a split pin, but but they do come with the cap here so this cap is what takes
    the place of this Bearing Buddy we took off and this is pretty common as a standard fitting. This is sort of thing is considered an upgrade. To begin getting this down, I’m
    actually gonna use a block of hardwood on here this is a piece of Merbau. Don’t
    recommend using Merbau because it’s actually made from compressed orangutans. Seriously. Same process as before, keep tapping evenly around you don’t
    want to get skewed whether it’s going into coming out trying to keep it as
    flat ands as level as possible once you’ve got the new race flush and they can take a bit of a beating, they’re really strong metal so the hammer’s not going to dent it at all, but once it’s flush you can’t get it any further without taking the other race and using
    that to hammer it in until it goes all the way against stop. The really important thing
    with this is don’t put it thin edge to thin edge like that. Put it in
    the same orientation so that the thick edge is pointing down and the thin edge is
    pointing up and the reason for that is if you put in this way, once you’ve got in
    you’ve got no way of getting this old one back out. Where if you put it this way
    what we’re going to do is use that punch to punch it out again and because the
    thick edge is against the thin edge we’ve actually got a lip to hook on to press
    the old one out once it has done its job. So always make sure that the thick edge goes down as you start to drive the new race home. So this is where we are now. The new race is all the way down, it’s hard up against the lip here and even all the way round. The old race is in here having done its job of pushing the new one all the way home, but because this thick edge is down, there’s a lip here which means we can turn this over and use that same method
    just to pop that old one out leaving the new one place. So I’ll do that on the
    vice and then we’re ready to do the other side. This time round we’ve gotta make sure we’re getting the back of the old rice not the back of the new one because we’re only trying to push one out not both out obviously. So that now is the old one popped back out and the new one in position. I’m gonna go through that same process with the inner race and then were ready to put this hub back
    together. So we now have the new race on that side and on that side, and this hub’s ready to start putting back on. Sometimes I wonder if this channel isn’t about putting people off doing it yourself. Every time I film something it turns out to be harder than it should be. Next step is to pack the bearings with
    grease. In this case this is specifically a grease with boat trailers in mind and
    actually is lithium based grease from memory, yes. That’s reallywhat you’re looking for to make
    sure you’ve got the right grease. We’re gonna pack the grease from this larger open
    side through to the top where it’s tapered smaller and the very first step to
    that is simply throwing it down into our greased, that way down and seeing how
    much we can get through. Oddly fun and satisfying. Then, take a big chunk of grease in your hand, in your palm, and then you’re looking to press down on it starting from the bottom until you actually see it oozing up through the top. So whatever
    grease comes past the bearing the I just sort of scoop back into the palm of my other hand that’s not holding the bearing, and just there Don’t know if it’s gonna show you clearly
    enough, you can see where it’s bubbled up on the top and that’s not grease that just ended up on the top, that’s grease that’s pushed all
    the way through from the bottom. There’s a knack to this, and I clearly don’t have it. I get there in the end. I
    definitely just keep going until you see the grease come up from the bottom
    all the way to the top but I’m not quick or particularly effective at it. You can actually buy bearing packers were
    you put the grease in and just press it down. They do a great job and they’re not that expensive but the other mechanic here won’t let me by one until I get better at doing it by hand so you know, fair enough, I’ll probably appreciate that in years to come. 😉 That’s the greased bearing in its place now,
    then we’ve got this oil seal holder that goes on the top here. It’s a much thinner metal so I’m just gonna get a piece of wood again and hammer it down evenly. Actually, I might just use one of these old brake pads given I’m throwing them away. That is certainly never going back on a vehicle.
    Then once that’s down, the oil seal goes on top. So now that’s together I’m going to flip that
    over, we will grease the outer bearing, we’ll pop that in, and then we’ll slide the whole thing on. What I’m going to
    do now is flip this back over, grease will generally be enough to hold
    the bearing in, I’m actually gonna put a rub of grease around here no gloves, but I’ll survive, that just levels off this cavity between the two
    bearings. As the wheel spins the centrifugal force will distribute that
    grease a bit and ending up with a layer in there like that. It’s starting to rain now
    so lets get this back together. Oil seal back on top of the inner bearing and then all you
    need to do is slide the whole thing on until the oil seals up on the other
    shaft and this bearing dropped out so I’ll just slide it in. There we go, and then we’re in business. Then the washer, cleaned up a bit. Then this castellated nut just make sure it’s threaded properly. Often by turning them the opposite way you’ll sort of hear the threads click and then you know they’re good to go and wind
    on without being cross threaded. What I did then was actually tighten it quite a bit, still turns, but what I’m trying to do is use that nut to push the mechanism right
    onto the axle and then I’ll back it off slightly so that the hub can turn freely.
    There are specifications for a lot of hubs, particularly for actual vehicle
    hubs, saying that if you put a spring scale on one of these studs and then
    you pull this scale down, like a fish scale, fish weighing scale kind of thing, how many
    kilograms does it take of force before this hubs starts to turn. If it takes too much,
    loosen the nut slightly, if it takes too little, tighten the nut slightly. Going by
    feel’s not a great thing to do in a video because it’s very hard to demonstrate what something feels
    like, what’s too lose, what’s too tight, but really what we’re looking at is having
    it spin, finding the point where any tighter and it starts to bind up and then backing off. That’s starting to bind up, so I’m just gonna back it off slightly and then I’m gonna find a section where the castellated but
    lines up with the hole through the axle and put a new split pin in. Here’s our new split pin. Just tap it through. Bend up the longer leg so its flush and then trim off the
    shorter one. So, if your puttingt hese brakes back on, I’m
    not going to because they need a bit of work, put the holder back on, loctite on the two
    nuts and do them up to whatever the manufacturer’s specification is with
    enough torque, enough stretch in those bolts so they don’t come undone. So now I’m going to pop the wheel back on this, check it for any
    play in a direction and then we can lower it down again. All right, I’ve got all these nuts started to make sure they’re cross threaded and then I’m just gonna pop them on in a bit of a star pattern just make sure that come down evenly And it it wasn’t raining I’d go and get my torque wrench and make sure they’re all done up to 110 newton metres but, it is raining so I’m going inside. Ah, sorry, before I run away, one thing I was going to say
    is just feel if you’ve got any play. If you’ve got any play top and bottom, side to side you know
    something’s wrong with your bearing installation. It’s stopped raining here now so I’ll just finished up quickly and put this Bearing Buddy back on. Sometimes, as I said before, it’ll just be a cap, fine. What I am gonna do those is, I’ve cleaned it out so I’m simply gonna pack this Bearing Buddy with new grease which you can also do to your ordinary cap
    but it’s not necessary and then press the this back on. Obviously as you put it on its going to displace a bit of that grease whatever space the axle nut takes
    up but it just saves you a lot of pumping
    away on the grease gun afterwards. So that’s in and we’ll just pump a bit more grease into it. As you pump grease with the grease gun, that bearing buddy’s starting to come forward slightly compressing that spring. So that Bearing Buddy’s back on now, grease
    pumped into it so the sides pretty much ready to go. Obviously we have to do the other side of the trailer but that’s the whole process for one wheel from go to woah. So thanks for
    watching, I hope this shows you what’s involved in changing a set of wheel bearings on a boat trailer. I would urge you though to err on the side of caution you not confident
    with this job. Perhaps it is one best left to a mechanic to do for you, but having said that it’s not rocket science. If you do do this job I’d recommend
    taking the boat for a very short lower speed run down the block, do a bit of
    testing. Come back maybe jack it up and see if there’s any play in the wheel after you’ve had a little run around the block, just before you hit the road and go do
    high-speed trips or whatever. One last thing I will say is if you’re using
    Bearing Buddies, make sure that whatever grease you’ve got in your grease gun is both marine grease and compatible with grease you had in the tub you used for packing the
    bearings. So just make sure those two greases are both fit for purpose and go witheach other. So, thanks again, hope enjoyed the video.Our winter’s obviously coming with all this rain which means that the Northern Hemisphere summer and boating
    season’s around the corner and this is obviously a good bit of maintenance to
    do before you start using your boat for another season. I think I looked up the
    other day that 88 percent of the world’s population, or something like that, lives
    in the northern hemisphere so plenty of boating ahead. Okay, see ya!

    Forex Trading Reviews: Italian Trader Reveals Confidential Trading Method

    August 24, 2019


    so are you trading a live account now
    and are starting to be satisfied with yeah yeah I’m trading live account and
    have have got some amazing on my side I think amazing results on live account
    also and I’m I’m really happy about it actually or are you still working for a
    job no actually I equipped my previous job already a six almost six months ago
    and on the last the last seven months I was I was having really good results
    with with Forex so I stopped looking for for a new job I mean and and now I’m
    seriously thinking that I can I came to ride with with trading and you
    know I’m still on the process so this this last six months were very it’s a
    wealthy month for me this my my live account results of last from September
    many it seem like there’s been a long struggle but you know it’s only been
    over a year but seems like you went through a lot of development during that
    time like you know I I guess how’s the training going now that now the trading
    is it’s Louis’s move and very clear I mean I have I have developed the skills
    of what you are talking about eleven eleven months ago when when you will be
    training your highs with be they will recognize patterns and of
    Correction and of trend so now each time I am in front of chart I can easily and
    clearly understand the world where the the price is going in which pattern is
    it’s going to unfold I mean I can i had the sensibility my eyes now are well
    trained to to spot this turning point and and i have also experienced to
    follow on the smaller time frame the beauty the beauty of the waves because
    as you always say the wave 1 there are is a trend and inside the trend that
    there is trend yes so in the wave 1 or 3 or whatever motive way you can follow a
    trend on a smaller time frame and and also I can I can pinpoint this this
    turning point in the smaller time frame and reenter the the trend maybe that is
    unfolding on 4 hour or 2 hours or whatever time frame are you getting in
    and out of more more trades on the shorter time frame and getting getting
    more profit or also doing some on the little bit longer time frame as well
    exactly exactly so it’s kind of like you can kind of double up on the profits
    sometimes by we’re just getting the most of what’s there yes because maybe
    instead to stay the the world correction of way to or wave for whatever when you
    get the end of trend you don’t it’s the time to exit so what there is no point
    maybe to stay for the boat way for a way to correction so you can
    reenter the trend because like like I did yesterday on euro euro on the N in
    15 minutes hit the perfect ABC correction around so
    I spotted around it was 15 no 19 my times so III don’t know what what was
    the temporary but between on this area and it may done 50 minutes and maybe see
    correction and then restart the half-track for another 100 pips up and
    so I entered the last two times pound DM and I got I got very clear and nice
    single two of ending trend and ending of correction oh that was a very how how it
    work and just as you hold back say you have to believe your eyes and when the
    pattern unfolding this way it is it’s really amazing it’s like a clock there
    works I think I think like I said I was very lucky to come to met to meet you
    just at the beginning of my journey on the forex market because when you are
    seasonal traders season a trader who trade maybe here’s for with pivot points
    and support and resistance and all this stuff is stochastic they have much more
    difficulty to you know learn to be you know it’s like a book with has to be
    feel that he is just or a book who is already written so I was a book
    blank book and I was ready to learn the system and and this new system yeah it
    could be hard to stop seeing what you’ve been seeing if you’re you know been
    doing the same thing for a long time thank you
    you might have somewhat a part of your personality that is has an affinity for
    for arts and beauty and film and sculpture you know that that enables you
    to see the same thing in in the market agree totally agree you have to use both
    brand brain inside at the same time to I mean to see what what we are looking for
    and some you know some traders are more found with indicators so when this turn
    up or down so yourself and blah blah blah so there are more you know
    scientific Beauty scientific side of your brain so you want a certainty that
    when there is that indicators give that signal so you have to sell or you have
    to buy we we are more you know likely said looking for the shape the
    proportion and when that all these things are matching so that’s the point
    where we are getting in on the market no indicators no you don’t need indicator
    to get at the hand of correction money but I’ve yet to see any other way that
    could get as much profit i don’t stuff the other people are doing I don’t see
    that they’re getting the same amount of profit may either either I mean just
    like I said the same things it can be done just with going to smaller time
    frame and looking for the same pattern you are looking on the eye or time
    frames and try to figure out where is the best place to to get in and
    how you don’t need the to add indicators or whatever templates on on your chart
    CC I am people not Cheatham you know help and to predict some turning point
    and that’s it that’s the way it works for me working fine
    yeah you’ve come a long way I think since you first started with us like
    over a year ago yeah December I start the December of
    2013 2012 what kind of experience did you have before that oh I I had six
    months of total forex tutor with one Italian guys who introduced introduced
    me to this business he he was a found manager in London this guy was really a
    master on Forex and he and I get really you know excited about the Forex and so
    I start started looking on the internet kind of tutorial because after six
    months he he is Jewish and he got to go back to Israel so he could then I
    couldn’t have a support from him anymore so that’s why I began to the search and
    and I found you what doesn’t mean a good money management and risk reward trading
    and all these things because I think many trade many traders are missing the
    point of what doesn’t mean one one two three or one two one risk/reward you
    can be drunk 70% of the time but if you are trading one two four one two three
    risk/reward you will be still profitable so exactly I think with that but the way
    that you Tracy because of what you learn you can get that one to four and better
    risk reward ratio because I know when you when you trade that way you’re gonna
    have the average number of pips consistently be a lot bigger than any
    losses that that’s the point that’s the point of end the beauty of these systems
    because when you are going to trade an end of correction the the odds on favor
    and the stop-loss that you can may have compared it to reward it’s it’s a huge
    amount like like the trade on pound pound yen so maybe the the the stop the
    stop-loss it was 100 pips but hit me the 300 pips in three two days three days of
    trade so it’s 1/3 risk on world I don’t I think this is the way I found manager
    should should happen should be hate select have a very selected trade not
    jumping and out and scalping I prefer stay flat and don’t trade then
    stop 15 pips 20 pips 30 pips that’s my point
    yeah my point of view I mean I’ll learn from you and I think I learned from the
    best Forex to tour the point we got the point that’s the way how we should trade
    don’t struggling the Hinnom out for 20 or 30 pitch and
    but select be choosy with your trade but when once you got in you have 1/3 or 1/4
    risk/reward trade and that’s fine I think this is the best way straight and
    we the results are speaking for for us yeah that’s true and I I mean that’s
    what I think also I was I started I can tell you I started with with the 30,000
    so there was 74th pounds so but that’s like 200 that’s right 200 percent over
    how much time yeah 200 percent in what like a quarter of
    the year or something like that yeah that’s phenomenal I mean and you’re
    risking you’re not risking that much money per trade 3 percent because I have
    those a lot calc tools and I’m risking always the fix at the amount
    I’m planning to so I decided to plateau to for three percent risk reward 5
    percent risk reward and they automatically it automatically give me
    the the number of lots have I have to trade the based on the stop-loss tree
    but yes America I’m excited that you’ve got to this point where you’re you’re
    already making a living from training and your results are pretty much
    spectacular in the industry and I think they’re very few traders in the world
    you get anything anywhere close to what what you’re doing there for all all this
    time you were talking about you know as you say you got at the moment when you
    realize that okay Oh that’s the way I work and from that
    moment I you know I I was constantly having faith and proof of what what I
    was looking though on the chart and had always you know positive results and I
    think now on on the right right side of no trading career because I mean I am
    focused on on what trader and to be conscious and I have a passion to wait
    the right trade

    2014 Sylvan S3

    August 24, 2019


    As a continued leader in the popular
    pontoon market Sylvan keeps moving forward with the introduction of the new S3. This 23 foot sporty,
    stylish and ultra-modern pontoon is the smaller
    brother to the S5 and features sea weave matting, rear-facing lounges, and standard RPT 2.0 pontoons. When we
    take a closer look at the S3 back at the dock the first thing you notice is the
    striking flowing lines created by the integrated wake board tower along with the exterior derailings that will
    certainly generate some attention Inside the boat, the bow lounge features an inviting wrap around design with premium vinyl
    and ergonomics the seats use unique lime green accents
    that really makes the vinyl stand out a non-traditional approach, but one
    that pays off. There’s ample storage under the seat as well as the cushions hinge open.
    Moving backwards in the boat we get to the storage that is under the
    helm console. This is a great spot for a cooler because of its size and easy
    access. Next to that is the in floor storage a great benefit having a third pontoon.
    Normally the captain gets all the comforts but on the S3 the companion chair to port reclines back and
    even has another trick up its sleeve as a footrest pops out making this possibly
    the best seat in the house The helm on the S3 is what I’ve come
    to expect from Sylvan. They’re not only stylish but functional also, as they feature items
    trays for iPhones a full gauge package and stereo
    controls right at hand The twin rear facing lounges behind
    the helm are the hallmarks of this boat when you add in the filler cushions you
    get a full size sun lounge that’s basically a king size bed. What I
    like most about this lounge is how easily it goes together and
    comes apart. The filler cushions lift up and can easily disappear into the storage
    that’s under the seats If you look under the starboard lounge,
    you’ll find the change area that easily folds up On the outside the gates, on the swim
    platform, is a pair of seats they have storage underneath, great for
    lines, tow sport lines and fenders The Sea Weave matting is soft on the feet, dries quickly and caps off a long list of stylish touches on
    this boat The S3 comes standard with Sylvan’s upgraded
    RPT 2.0 pontoons and this model had the optional third log.
    With the new Yamaha F200 on the transom the S3 performed like a runabout, cruising
    easily in the high 20’s and low 30 miles per hour range and
    topping out at 41 miles per hour at 6,000 RPM.

    Pontoon: A Captain’s Log

    August 24, 2019


    We’re down in the boat at the Union Travis is the driver People are scrambling What do we do, what do we do We need to find a buoy,
    we need to find an area We are safe And it’s great! Some strangers! Okay! See ya soon! Update: Skipper Bud’s told us to book it away from the Union The rain has started, and
    we are going out into the world The sky looks as follows We’re gonna make it, but it’s
    gonna be scary. Just normal boating weather… The clouds are here And we’re trying to turn
    the key so that we can leave The motor is…in the water Let’s get movin’ on this journey
    into the abyss This is the Union… this is where we’re going Note the tornado-like structures
    ahead It’s fine there are clouds and…we’re doing it we’re really doing it! Just a normal-looking cloud Faster! That was lightning. Horrifying Ahhhhhhh Are we gonna make it? Probably…but it’s scary you know Everyone is taking cover. Cary still has to look ahead. This is horrific Oh my god I’m going back under a towel Some parts were too rough to film but we’re getting closer to the shore Tucker is freaking
    out people are freaking… but, people are generally in good spirits! Umm I’m just – this is a captain’s report. Captain’s last report. Reporting to you from the back of the boat It’s…better But it’s still cold. Travis is in the driver’s seat which means we are
    going more fast than we were going but we’re now going a little bit slower than we were going for reasons I don’t know, because I’m in the back. More to come. People are… trying
    to be positive. Haha. Hehe. …given this position [cheering] We can see the red and green buoys It’s very exciting. Captain’s update,
    guys! And, are we – we’re getting closer? You can see it? The front…the fronticepiece…is happening aaand
    we’re in the red and green. We’re close….to shore Captain’s journal We’re back in the
    marina and Cary is now driving because, uh, Travis was definitely doing wake in a no wake
    zone He also slammed on the boat brakes real hard, resulting in my bleeding But, you know
    what, he is our most experienced boat person and we couldn’t have done it without him today So, props to Travis Um, so we’re still just heading back in. And we’ll, uh, they told us to go the end of the marina, I mean they’ve been exceedingly unhelpful and, it’s great We’re almost there. Wanna get a tattoo? Yeah, let’s get tattoos now! Tattoos! They
    can all say ‘Celebration of Life’ I want a pontoon tattoo with y’all This is the last
    of the captain’s log Things are getting really emotional here on the boat You’re my spirit animal (do we say that
    anymore?) I have a secret, like – It’s not secret A lot of special things happening
    here And we’re trying to park the boat We’re back at the marina and we survived, and we’re
    all stronger, and we’re all…together for life. Special. Thank you for listening to
    the captain’s log. Goodbye.

    A Boating Story: Marty

    August 24, 2019


    You know, getting up
    in the morning for me, I look at every day as
    just a brand new day, it’s a blessing. It’s sometime a challenge
    depending upon what is on my to-do list. When I get up knowing that
    I’m going to go fishing it’s the closest thing to heaven on earth that I will ever find. It’s just me, it’s nature, it’s God and everything before me is beautiful and I’ve got the opportunity to make it what I want it to be. I started fishing when I
    was about four years old. My father took me fishing. We’d go out to a pond
    or something like that and I think I probably
    caught my first blue gill and maybe unlike other kids where that was just a one time thing,
    I was hooked for life. My dad and I started fishing
    more and more tournaments. We joined a local bass club. That was really a big
    turning point in my life. It really gave me an appreciation and a love for the outdoors
    and water in particular. I rarely catch a fish or make a cast or get a backlash without me thinking about my father. Even when I make a bad cast it’s rare that I don’t think of dad telling me how I could’ve gotten a little bit closer to the stump or maybe I need to throw a bit farther past the stump and drag it by, or dad chuckling at me when I’d get one too many backlashes. So yeah, I think about my dad all the time. I knew at some point I would get a nice bass boat, what we titled a real boat. When Bass Pro Shops opened their store in Springfield, I just
    frequented it as much as I could and I always fell in love
    with the aluminum boats. When you walk into the showroom they’ve got all these fantastic models out there for you to see, feel, touch. The buying experience was so good with Bass Pro, I took the time to sit down and write a letter to Johnny Morris. I hadn’t even taken the boat out yet. About a week later I received a hand written letter from Johnny Morris telling me not only thank you for purchasing the boat, but thank you for complimenting my staff. When somebody takes the time to write a handwritten letter it means the world to me. I’ve got a son, my wife, a
    beautiful daughter-in-law, my grandsons and we intend to spend a lot of time out on the lake, especially now that
    we’ve got our real boat, just out getting back to nature, just reflecting upon God’s earth and just enjoying myself. It kind of centers me and I think it actually makes me a better husband, a better father, a better grandfather. We look forward to spending
    a lot of quality family time on the lake. The Tracker boat is gonna
    be a big part of that.

    RC ADVENTURES – TOYBOTA – BBC TOP GEAR TRUCK BOAT TRiBUTE – Toyota LC70 UTE w/ Oversized Outboard

    August 24, 2019


    – [RCSparks] Okay guys, it’s time
    for the maiden voyage of the Toybota. Let’s see if it works. – [Jem] Hey Mo, are
    you excited for the Toybota? – Yeah. – [Jem] Yeah, me too. – Very excited. – Are you excited buddy? It looks good, hey. – [Jem] I think its gonna make it Mo, what do you think? You think its gonna make
    it all the way across? – Yeah. – That’s a long way, hey? That’s about a half a kilometer. – [Jem] Oh man, in scale terms that’s a really long trip. I think we can do it. – Yeah. – [Jem] You got some pontoons there. – Yeah, I got the Go-Pro on top, I’ve got a total of four pontoons
    with that outboard motor. I’ve got a total of three
    batteries around the vehicle. It is completely amphibious. Just gonna get one
    battery plugged in here. – [Jem] Cable-steering, correct? – Cable-driven steering in the back. – Okay, cool. Check that out guys, that’s really neat. – And an outboard. My guy moves, put his leg down
    for a little support there. (model outboard squeeking) Nice. – [Jem] Decent. – So being amphibious it
    should go from the land to the water and then
    back to land is the goal. That will be the win. When Jeremy and Richard and James, they all did the first Toybota,
    there was two episodes. One of the Toybota, and one
    of the car-boat challenge. So, in the challenge, they
    went across the channel and that’s what we’re
    gonna try and do today. – [Jem] (sighs)
    I think you can do it. – Lets roll. – [Jem] Do it. – Lets go. Mo are you ready buddy? – Yeah. (Toybota squeeks across the mud) You can go in the water. – Oh, we’re going in the water buddy. I wonder if its gonna get stuck, its pretty low water-level today. (Toybota squeeks into the water) There we go, is it gonna float? Oh my god, its floating! (laughs) – [Jem] Oh my god! – (laughs) Its totally floating! – [Jem] Its doing it! – Jennett, can I get you to film here. – [Jem] Absolutely. – Okay, here we go. Okay, I’m a little lop-sided. (water splashing) Okay, coming back, first test. So, I wanna actually fix this
    and reposition this right here so we actually have them
    both sticking out properly. Come-on, lets go back. (Toybota engine roars) Ha, ha. (Toybota engine purrs) Okay, we may have the balance
    thing worked out here. (Toybota squeeks onto land) Okay, around. I think we’re ready to
    try a channel crossing. – [Jem] Okay, I love it. – [RCSparks] Good luck Chuck! – [Jem] Good luck! – [RCSparks] We may never see this thing again. – [Jem] (chuckles) Good luck dad! – [RCSparks] (laughs loudly) – [Jem] Safe voyage! – [RCSparks] Thank you. Here we go, lots of weeds. Floating. (engine purring) (splashing) – [Mo] You got scared? – [RCSparks] I’m a little scared,
    that’s a long voyage. (engine purring) (splashing) – [Mo] I can’t go out there. – [Jem] I wouldn’t
    recommend it unless you’re in that cool boat right there. My gosh. – [RCSparks] Too fast and I
    notice, if I’m going to fast it pushes the rear truck-bed down to far. But if I go slow enough,
    or too slow the prop comes out of the water. That was the challenge I was having with the flotation devices as well. Was just trying to make sure
    the prop was in the water without plowing the hood
    in that was the problem that Jeremy was having the
    first episode of Top Gear. Man, this thing is taking on
    the waves, sailing the waves like a twig, is that what
    he said? (laughs loudly) – [Jem] Floating on
    the water like a twig. – [RCSparks] Floating on the water like a twig. – [Mo] Guys– (engine purring) – [RCSparks] Oh no, the outboard
    is taking on some water. I’ve got a ton of water in the back. The outboard stopped working,
    the whole back truck-bed is full of water, guys! I’m spinning the tires forward, trying to get it towards shore. Oh my gosh, look its trying to capsize. – [Jem] Oh my gosh! – [RCSparks] Oh my gosh. Slowly and steady. – [Jem] Like the
    turtle, like the turtle. – [RCSparks] I took one moment
    to reset the camera. Aaaw, oh its trying to come over. – [Jem] Come towards us, Chucky. – [RCSparks] Its swimming, but
    has no paddles at all on it. – [Jem] Oh Toybota. – [RCSparks] Oh Toybota. (chuckles) – [Jem] Come, come here Toybota. – [RCSparks] Its trying, its working so hard. (engine squeeks) And what’s happened is
    the water has gotten into the outboard motor and actually
    stopped the Brushless motor. – [Jeanette] Oh no! – [Man] Yes, and we should
    have a recovery boat, but you know what,
    we’re not gonna do that, for some reason. We gotta be out here husslin. – [Jeanette] That’s
    just too much to carry. – [Man] (laughs) Is he getting closer, or
    am I imagining things? – [Jeanette] No, you’re getting closer. – [Man] Slowly, slowly its getting closer. Toybota! Power. Come on buddy, you can do it, Toybota! – [Jeanette] You’re doing
    it, you’re doing it. – [Man] Its getting here slowly (laughs) – [Jeanette] (laughs) Here Toybota. – [Man] So the thing is, is that the wind has cropped up a little bit
    and was pushing it back. So we should’ve maybe
    started on the other side and come into the waves, right. Cause then it wouldn’t have
    been blowing over our back bow. Plus we also have to be
    very aware that when we stop those waves can blow
    again over the back bow. Look at this thing powering
    its way into shore. – [Jeanette] It wants to
    win, honey, it wants to win. – [Man] No paddle tires
    at all, Toybota c’mon. One 3F battery, 2200 milliamp hour. Its in high-gear on the
    two-gear transmission and its almost here, come on Toybota. – [Jeanette] Whoop, whoop! Do it, do it, do it. – [Man] And its fighting the current too. – [Jeanette] I love it,
    look at the power you built. You built that! – [Man] Yeah, its coming back. – [Jeanette] That’s awesome. – [Man] So people were
    wondering about capsizing and we can see here now that capsizing was not a problem as long as
    we had those sealed pontoons. I think we’re gonna drive out of here. Our maiden voyage, we didn’t
    make it across the channel but we’re almost driving out of here. – [Mo] Guys, just for one second. – [Man] Holy cow, look at this. Alright. – [Jeanette] Nice, woohoo! – [Man] Toybota’s back. – [Jeanette] It made a
    pretty decent journey, I’ll give it that for sure. – Aaaw, I’m hoping we
    can get some of the water out of that outboard. – [Jeanette] And go again, this is fun! – We might as well try to go again. – [Jeanette] Might as well. – I am not willing to give up yet. This is a celebration and
    I’m going to the other side since the wind is blowing this way. I’m going into the waves at a constant. Jen is going to stay here, do her best to film from this side. Good luck. Good to go, okay where are my keys? [Jeanette] Top Gear has
    been our favorite show for so many years. We make our kid watch it,
    even when he was a baby. (toy motor revving) (toybota squeeking across mud) – Look, its pretty weedy. (motor purrs) (splashes) – [Jeanette] Here it comes. Okay Morris we’re cheering on the Toybota. – [Mo] It can come back? – [Jeanette] I hope it does,
    we’re gonna cheer it on. Its gonna make it back. We’ve been working hard on this rig. [Mo] My dads just a jinx– (motor revving and splashing) – [Jeanette] Its hard to keep it in focus its so far away right now. – [Man] No. – [Jeanette] Nope, he says. Okay, we’re taking on
    too much water he says. – Toybota! – [Jeanette] I’m very proud of you. – Well, here’s the deal,
    both times the Toybota entered the water from the beach and exited the water to the
    beach under its own power. It may not have been the
    outboard that carried it home because it took on water. But it did not sink, in
    fact, it was the power of the wheels that carried
    it through the water all the way back. So yes, paddle tires would
    have worked even better. And I bet you, we could get
    the Toyflota to go without an outboard motor at all,
    so Toyflota instead, right! (laughs) There’s always an
    avenue to have fun in our sea. But today did you have fun? Two attempts, say. – [Jeanette] That was amazing. – We did our very best to get it to cross. But I’m not going to give
    up, we just need a little bit less wind and I also need a
    way to set constant velocity. So, I’m gonna switch the controls around so one is not on a spring, and that will be the outboard motor. The problem I had on the
    way, on the far side, is that when the waves were coming in, it was rocking the Toybota
    to the point where the prop was actually coming out of the water, causing more rock back
    and forth on the waves. But guys, it was fun, I had a blast. Hopefully you guys have
    been entertained for this build video series. Thank you so much for
    helping us reach 1 billion total video views on RC Adventures and Family RC Adventures. Guys, thanks for tuning in, we’ll see you on the next
    episode of RC Adventures. And until next time, go
    out and have fun with the hobby of RC. Bye! I’m actually a little
    disappointed that it didn’t work. – Are you kidding me, it drove
    in and then it drove out, which is the most important thing. You know where its not? In some random leech-infested, weed-disgusting part of the lake. – (laughs) – So, it drove out.
