    I found an EPIC treassure in Minecraft – Part 6

    August 18, 2019


    Aye-o! Good morning gamers. It’s Minecraft Day. Heck yeah, my favorite day! I love Minecraft I am legit addicted to this game I am having so much fun Look at this! Look at my farm, it’s epic. And look at my- oh my God. I Feel like this probably goes against some rules and regulations. All right, who’s hungry? Who’s hungry? There you go. There you go Have it all Eat as much as you can ( subtitle by *I am HeRe *in description at bottom) Now the reason I did this is because we actually need to start murdering them because we’re going- Agh god dammit. Alright, I’m just gonna kill I’m sorry, PETA look away! Ah I need your meat. I’m sorry, they’re escaping! Stop them! Oh God What have I done? Oh God damn it~ *dies inside* Okay, al-all right the children gets to- WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY BOAT?! Ok that’s awesome, you guys can stay in the boat, that’s- *happy noises* Oh, you’re friends with Jørgan, You can stay. (r.i.p Jørgan) Why do I even have a farm, this is too- Look at all the children! Everyone: YoU wOuLdN’t KiLl A cHiLd FeLiX Felix: NO I WOULDN’T! (he’s lying) Oh my GOoOod Alright, ok. It’s- mmhm (No! Jørgan!) O- Jørgan! Jørgan! Sorry x4 (you better be) Alright, the kids get to live I’m that gracious, but I do need their meat because today we are going on epic Adventure That’s right everyone. We have these treasure maps and we’re gonna go and find Where it is it looks like it’s probably pretty goddamn far Epic! That is the cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life oh yeah I made some ehh Improvement to the house as well. Got this new carpet got this new terrace. It’s pretty epic It’s whatever Oh yeah and these bad guys attacked me. So I put their banner on our epic Tree of Life Okay, Jørgan has to stay on this adventure. Actually, maybe I should bring him. Oh god, it’s too scary. so we are the tiny dot on the map. That’s so far dude. Is this one mirror? Oh, look, it- it- is it changing? it is changing. Oh god. This is so complicated, dude it is changing! Oh god. This is so complicated, dude All right. We’ll get Jørgan for this one. All right, Jørgan, let’s ride So we have to ride… this direction? Question mark? hey Jørgan’s friend. Hello. Jørgan’s friend. This is epic Oh God, we’re gonna need a boat, aren’t we? Uhh… or maybe not. so all the people in this village disappeared it- I don’t know why. it’s not like I was trying to blow up their house or anything (suspicious 🤔) But, turtle is still here! Hello, turtle and stone person(iron golem you pleb) is still here. Hello stone person So now, wait this is- now we’re going south How’d it go in on the map? Surely, this should be the way. or is it this way? Okay, wait, so… we need to go west we need to go this way *scared noises* Gee-Bali-Ba! Ugh, god damMIT! Yeah, it’s this way. No, it’s not *confused noises* Okay this way I don’t know how this works. Okay? I’ve never done this. I’m a gamer. It’s old gamer intuition That’s all I got. I haven’t shown everything I’ve been doing I’ve been playing offline for hours and hours, and I’m so hooked on minecraft But I haven’t done any adventure So I’m excited now to go on epic- Okay this is working, I think… no we’re just going up again, aren’t we? What about this way? I think we might have to get a boat. I don’t like this Will you be a good boy? (he is a good boy) Uh, Jørgan we’re gonna, we’re gonna do it like this Stay… (moves) Oh god, Stay (still moves) Jørgan *frustrated noises* Jørgan How did I not bring a shovel, to a goddamn treasure hunt map hunting thing this is what I get for- for forgetting EVERYTHING!

Maybe this city is less lousy than the other one. The city is being under attack Alright, then I won’t go then. okay, so now it would make sense that we just need to go in this direction At least if you ask me is it possible that the treasure is just underwater? I think that might be a yes (no) There’s wh- there’s light under the water. Is that Santa Claus? I can’t see I don’t have my glasses Oh my god, there’s so many citIES! *gasp* Woah! The map! the map is appearing! すげい…what is this? It’s a ship in the sand? question mark? Okay. Let’s remember where we parked our boat Is there a treasure map in here? I think I need dark wood.

    Floating Tiny Cabin is Perfect for Glamping on the Water

    August 18, 2019


    >>MAT: Hey everyone in this video we’re gonna
    take a look at this extremely minimalist floating micro cabin. It was all built
    with locally milled timber it has a metal sloping roof and it was also built
    on pontoons that allow the cabin to be in the water year-round because they’re
    designed to freeze into the ice. The floating cabin was designed by our
    friend Bonnie and the idea behind this was to create a really simple space
    where people could come and enjoy nature and the water and experience spending
    time in a space with just the basic necessities. And so she calls it The
    River Zen. We actually met Bonnie two years ago when she gave us a tour of her
    incredible houseboat and now she’s just finished working on this project and
    she’s going to show us around. [Inspiring Music Playing] So welcome to The River Zen, this is my
    new boat. [Taps Gong] Come on in. This boat is a lot smaller
    than The River Den, those of you know The River Den. It’s a 8′ by 10′ cabin. This is
    it, what you see is what you get! So it’s a small space it’s really designed for
    for someone who wants to be on retreat or just spend the night here. It’s fully
    insulated, it has four four inches of foam insulation on the floor, and the
    roof, and all the walls. The framing is done in a post and beam structure and
    all the framing and the rafters are cedar, rough cedar, and the trim is
    douglas fir, the floor is cherry, and all the wall is pine tongue and groove
    with a special oil that I used for finishing, it has citrus in it, it’s
    a natural oil and so that was really… it smelled really good. And all these
    shelves are live-edge cedar as well. The wood all came from the sawmill up in
    Lac Ste. Marie where I work, yeah so these are 2 inch cedar rafters and they
    were…it was like a curved tree that was milled, and an amazing builder
    helped me put the structure of this together and then I did a lot of the finishing work with my friends. [Ambient water sounds from the river] When I was designing the
    layout of the furniture, it was a… kind of a bit of a puzzle to figure out
    how we were gonna make a bed that was gonna be like retractable and all these
    special features. When I closed my eyes and imagined the perfect space
    there was nothing in it, so I was like Okay well this is my project and I can do
    whatever I want so I decided to make it a minimalist space and have the least
    amount of stuff possible. And it’s also an experience for someone to go
    stay somewhere where there’s not a bunch of stuff I think people are seeking that
    out more and more and they want to live more simply so this is an opportunity
    this is a place where they can have a little taste of that and see what they
    really need actually. So there’s a few shelves pretty much there’s not much in
    here there’s a few towels and blankets. This is a propane heater so it’s a
    direct vent propane furnace and it’s super easy to light, I have two propane
    tanks on the back with a double regulator so when one tank runs out it
    just switches to the other tank I have a special little table feature
    here that I custom-built. The people I was working with on the
    boat they really wanted to have a table and chairs and I was like, no I want to
    sit on the ground, we need to sit on the ground. So this is the little table
    design for that. The leg comes out and then it just hooks up. So during the daytime there can be these…
    these are Thai yoga massage mats. They’re really comfy. So these mats can be out and then at nighttime the table can go up and the mattress is just bungee strapped
    to the wall and it comes down. The bed is just like with a bungee system so there’s just screws and hooks with two bungees and then it’s just…
    it’s just a four inch foam so it’s really…it’s really comfy. It’s a dense
    foam. I’ve slept in here lots and I find it so comfortable. [Ambient Electronic Music Playing] It’s completely off
    grid, there’s no electricity or solar there’s this like little solar lights,
    there’s a little gas stove to cook outside with a butane fuel.
    There’s just battery-operated lights and some solar lights but that’s about it
    there’s there’s no running water either it’s completely off grid. So it is quite
    a challenge to stay here for a couple days like one night it’s pretty cool, you
    know people go to restaurants, but if you stay here a couple days you really
    get a taste of what it’s like to live without power and all these amenities
    that we’re used to. Here we just have a custom shelf and this is a little kind of pirate chest custom thing that I made. This is my first box. So in here there’s utensils and this is
    the little gas stove. It’s not the best setup to have dishes outside because there’s animals and stuff but for now, it is what it is, and it
    might be that I build something inside to store dishes and have a little
    cooking station for the winter. This is the bathroom, the way we’re using this sawdust composting system is that there’s one
    bucket for liquids, so pee in one bucket and one bucket for solids with a bag and
    sawdust. So poo and toilet paper goes in the bag with sawdust and that’s
    composted and then the pee we bring it and we flush it down the toilet.
    Something I haven’t finished yet is putting a canvas over here so that’s
    like a curtain so it deflects the wind and the rain and the snow in the winter. Inside of the cabin is 8′ by 10′ and then there’s 6′ of deck that’s
    covered by the roof and then there’s 2.5′ on each side to walk around
    which the overhang pretty much protects. This is an extra floating dock
    that I’ve tied on to the front it’s just uh it’s just an extra deck space and
    it’ll stay here all winter long, too. It’s a real dream come true to be able to do this. I feel so lucky to be in a position
    where I can conceive an idea, and then work with people to bring it to life, and then offer it for rent and invite people to stay here. It’s such an amazing feeling…yeah I feel
    really lucky. [Music Playing]>>MAT: I hope you enjoyed this video.

    How to Install Foam Backed Headliner

    August 18, 2019


    Eric: This video is brought to you by Sailrite.
    Visit Sailrite.com for all your project supplies, tools, and instructions. This aft cabin was
    stripped of its headliner/hull liner because it was out of date, too dark, stained and
    no longer sticking well. We will transform this aft cabin using new headliner fabric
    from Sailrite and in the process reveal the steps required to do-it-yourself. This short
    video tutorial will demonstrate the vinyl foam backed headliner.
    Brian, the owner of this 1982 Regal Ambassador 245XL, will be heading up our DYI tutorial
    on how to install vinyl foam backed headliner. He has removed the old headliner and cut a
    section of the foam backed headliner to size- slightly larger than the area it will fit
    in to. What we’ve done is we’ve already taken
    down all of our old headliner that was back here; it was actually a carpet headliner back
    here. We’re going to go with this foam backed Morbern Seabrook headliner. The reason we’re
    using this is because, this being the sleeping quarters, I would prefer to have a vinyl just
    because if I roll out of bed, I would rather wake up with my face against this rather than
    carpet. So that and I think it’ll stay a little bit cleaner because as small as it
    seems, there’ll be a lot of hands on the wall, things like that. It’ll be a lot easier
    to clean up, you know from when you’re climbing in and out.
    We’ve already prepped the surface using our 3M Adhesive Remover to take off all the
    old adhesive. Alright, what we’re using here is once again our General Trim Adhesive
    from 3M that we offer here at Sailrite. Notice that in addition to the mask we do also have
    a fan that’s blowing in one of the portholes here, and it’s giving a good nice cross
    airflow to help with the fumes. We’re spraying this in overlapping passes so we get good
    coverage here. I have my headliner laying here specifically to help keep the adhesive
    from falling onto my carpet. I’m going to try and not get too much on the other headliner,
    or hull liner. But if we do get a little bit on there, it’s easy to clean up with 3M
    Adhesive Remover. Now I’m going to turn my nozzle, actually turn my spray pattern,
    turn it 90 degrees and that way I can go up and down. Now we’re going to go ahead and
    do the same with our hull liner. You’ll notice I’m still doing overlapping in crisscross
    pattern. I just want to make sure I get a good even coverage. You’ll notice that the
    adhesive basically lays just on the surface of the foam; that’s what we want. We need
    to let it set up for just a couple minutes and then we’re going to stick it. If you stick
    it too early, what will happen is the adhesive will really penetrate into the foam, but it
    won’t really bond. Eric: We’re going to cut in here and give
    a short demonstration on the importance of allowing the solvents to evaporate before
    adhering. What we’re going to do is we’re going
    to adhere this headliner material to this board, but what we want to demonstrate is
    the importance of letting the glue set up before you tack it up. Eric: We’ll apply it to two separate samples. So we apply our glue in a crisscross pattern
    for even coverage. A little extra. Eric: As he applies the glue, let’s run
    a clock. This section of vinyl foam backed headliner is the section that he will apply
    before waiting the appropriate three minutes for it to tack up. Then the same way we would apply it to our
    surface. I’m going to go ahead and get our second surface ready. Now the first piece
    we allowed basically no time for it to set up. So we’re going to put it in place, stick
    it down, and as you can see it kind of moves around on me a little bit. It also can have
    a tendency to show hand prints, what not, because what’s actually happening is the
    glue is soaking down into the pores. You see that comes right off. Now the other piece
    we’re going to let it tack up properly. Now this here has tacked up for us, and so
    when we apply this… Eric: Before applying this piece, we allowed
    it to sit for approximately three minutes. We can see it doesn’t dimple nearly as much.
    It’s also stuck to the point that it’s starting to tear away the foam when we try
    to pull it. Remember, this is the one that we just basically we sprayed the glue on and
    didn’t give it any time to stick, and basically there’s just no stick. Whereas letting it
    tack up, and there’s a tremendous amount of stick. Now out here on the edge, I probably
    just didn’t have enough glue out there. But there in the middle it’s tearing away. Eric: Back to our aft cabin. We’ve let this set up for a few minutes,
    and what we’re going to do is we’re going to start from the bottom because I have the
    bottom cut straight and I’m going to work it to the top. I also have it perfectly centered.
    You can see we have a little bit of shape to it so I have to make sure I have enough
    overhang there to get up into those corners. So we’re just going to carefully tilt it
    into position. We’re going to start there with the center, and we’re going to work
    each way making sure we’re keeping things straight with our straight line. Now that
    we’ve done that, we can work up towards the top. Then we’re just going to work from
    the bottom center to the top outside. Make sure we get it into that corner nice and tight.
    We’ll be coming back to trim that in a moment. Eric: When Brian moves to adhere the other
    side, a small wrinkle is present. He will need to act quickly before the glue sets to
    pull the headliner and re-apply it. You can see that it sticks fairly quickly
    so you do want to make sure that you have it into the proper position before sticking. Eric: This is a very small aft cabin and we
    could not fit another person in to help Brian. But it would’ve been very helpful with placement
    and to avoid wrinkles. The cameraman- myself- and Brian are not small guys. Next step, cut
    away excess from all edges using a brand new razor blade, and change it often. It’s important to have a sharp blade in
    this process so don’t cheap out and not turn your blade often enough. Eric: This edge is not cut perfectly straight.
    We’re not going to show it, but we will be installing trim boards that will go up
    against the carpet and the vinyl headliner here. So that is not important. That was one cut. I’m going to go ahead
    and turn my blade before I make my next cut. Eric: Along the ceiling here, no trim board
    will be installed so he cuts slowly and carefully. However, a carpet style headliner will be
    installed on the ceiling, and it will help to hide any inconsistencies in his cut along
    that edge- as seen here in this finished shot. Now for our last cut. Eric: Time for a new razor blade. In this corner here, we have a trim board
    that’s going to go in place right here. So what we want to do is we want to cut more
    on this wall than we do here. I don’t want to go cut here and put a big cut into my decorative
    panel there and not be able to cover it up with the trim. So just as you cut, just be
    cognizant, okay the trim is going to go on this side or this side so that you ensure
    that you’re not cutting material that’s not going to be covered by the trim.
    We talked a little bit about why we used the foam backed headliner back here because I
    wanted the vinyl surface back here in the aft cabin. It’ll be a lot better for hand
    prints- things like that. Now you can see a little bit of wrinkling or whatnot. Now
    this is of course worst case scenario. We’ve got these bright camera lights shining on
    here so you see a lot of shadowing. You’ll probably never see that in normal light. But
    it’s important to note that the reason we are seeing that is that it is inconsistencies
    in the fiberglass. Now the foam backing that’s on the vinyl does help to absorb a lot of
    those inconsistencies. If we were using just vinyl right against it, you’d see it would
    really look awful. But this particular boat has fairly rough fiberglass. Everywhere else
    I’m going to be using the carpet headliner because the carpet headliner just tends to
    really cover up a lot more evil yet, and most of that is because just like how right now
    we’re seeing that the way the light reflects off of it because the carpet headliner doesn’t
    reflect light at all, it’ll hide a lot of those things. Also this particular boat we
    have some wiring- things like that- we need to hide. So the carpet, although you will
    still see those things because you don’t have this, you know, shiny headliner to look
    at it, the carpet’s really going to hide that a lot better. Eric: Trim boards made from wood can be used
    to hide seams or transitions. Here we are making upholstered trim boards using PVC lumber
    which can be sourced from any hardware store. Then it can be upholstered with a headliner
    of your choice. Here we are using the foam backed headliner. We are using a ¼” staples
    (stainless steel) and the EZE TC-08 staple gun- available from Sailrite. Now this upholstered
    trim board can be screwed over seams, rough edges, or transitions to give them a finished
    look. Another option for vinyl foamed backed headliner is to use hidem gimp. We did not
    use this on Brian’s boat for the headliner. But here we are using hidem gimp for an upholstered
    helm seat. So you can see how it’s applied with a staple bun in the center. Then the
    finished edges help hide the staple. This can be used to hide seams and more. The choice
    is yours- trim boards, woods like teak or other, upholstered trim boards, or hidem gimp.
    Let’s pull the curtains and get a quick look at the finished aft cabin with the new
    headliner and hull liner- both foam backed and carpet style.
    Coming up next is the materials and tools list that we used to install this vinyl foam
    backed headliner. Be sure to check out the Sailrite website for other types of headliner/hull
    liner fabrics. We have several other DIY tutorial videos showing how to install other types
    too. To see more project tutorials that are similar to this one, click on a video here.
    In the few months, you will see multiple new tutorial videos for the 2016 project boat,
    which is a 1982 Regal Ambassador 245XL. Upcoming projects include:
    • Making your own foam backed headliner • V-Berth cushions
    • Re-upholstering a folding helm seat • Upholstered side panels
    • Lounge cushions • Cushions with a backer board

    2018 Pontoon Boat WRAPS & BUMPER GUARDS | New Features for Added Protection | Avalon Luxury Pontoons

    August 18, 2019


    So for 2018, we really focused heavily on styling on the upper end and performance in the lower end. We saw the need, that we can do much better with a certain specific and pointed design changes, so
    we attack those. One feature we’ve added this year, available as an option, are our
    Vantage Pontoon Wraps & Bumper Guards. And what this provides: in certain water
    environments pontoons can get stained, and they require different cleaning
    techniques or shark hiding. So this provides the consumer another option, with which they can add some beautiful aesthetic and durability to the pontoons, and not
    have to be so concerned about cleanliness.

    Bluewater Sailboat Tour-INSIDE a Valiant 40 -(Our Tiny Home)2 Of 3 Patrick Childress Sailing #31

    August 18, 2019


    Valiant 40 Part 2 Hello I’m Patrick Childress on the sailboat Brick House … welcome aboard today is part two of the valiant 40 tour
    down below so let’s turn the cameras around we’ll go through the hatch board
    and take a look at one time all the trim around the companionway was teak now
    it’s very low maintenance polyethylene bottom wash board that’s
    also solid polyethylene very low maintenance very sturdy so let’s go down
    below we’ll take a very quick tour of this valiant 40 and then we’ll come back
    and look at some of these items in much closer detail on the right side the
    starboard side is a hanging Locker for all the foul weather gear and we also
    keep our flares in there just forward of that is the pantry with several shelves
    and very deep storage for lots of food storage and on the port side is the aft
    cabin which we often call just the bedroom and the port side of course is
    the galley and we’ll come back and take a closer look at the galley in just a
    few minutes. On the starboard side is Rebecca’s domain the nav station she
    installed a lot of these electronics and she maintains the electronics since she
    does all the navigating for us makes it easy for me she just tells me to turn
    right turn left how far up ahead to go and in the next video she’ll actually do
    a little orientation on the electronics what we have and how useful they are on
    the starboard side is a water tank under the settee that one is about 60 gallons
    capacity there’s a tons of storage behind the backrest they go all the way
    out to the hull and we have the stereo cabinet up here behind that white door
    and then there’s another 60 gallon water tank underneath this settee on the port
    side and in the next video I’ll go through what we did to save these
    aluminum tanks they were very heavily pitted and it was gonna cost a fortune
    to rip these out and try to fit something else in so we have a remedy
    that has worked for all these years and we’ll go into that next video up
    here on the left is even more storage and there’s also lots of ventilation in
    this boat lots of hatches and port lights so we really don’t need wind
    directors to force more air through these hatches this is a hanging Locker
    on the starboard side and more clothes storage in shelves just forward of that
    on the port side is the head it’s just the right size it’s not too big not too
    small so we’re not too cramped some people have problems with their Jabsco toilet. We just don’t have problems with ours and I have a few tips I think that
    might help you out which we’ll cover in the next video but I like the size of
    this head we have a shower curtain that goes around to contain water when we’re
    taking a shower it has all the amenities that we need to be comfortable on this
    boat. Stored up forward is the Barracuda sewing machine very similar to
    the Sailrite, a lot of the parts are interchangeable. and the v-berth is not
    for personal storage this is where all kinds of parts and supplies are stored
    stainless steel nuts and bolts fiberglass, fiberglass resin, glue, all
    kinds of extra stainless steel parts are stored up in these shelves sandpaper,
    tools you name it so we are pretty self-sufficient out here if something
    should break and the same for the storage up here on the starboard side in
    all these shelves and a way up in the chain Locker we’ll
    get to that in the next video we have a hundred and fifty feet of chain that we
    store up there and then in that PVC tube that comes out of that is a is where the
    other hundred and fifty feet of chain goes to down below the V Berth – we like
    to keep as much chain as low and aft as possible. To the hanging Locker and we’ll
    get started there oh there’s one other thing I forgot to mention we’ll also be
    taking a look at the main bilge pump underneath this floorboard and we’ll
    take a look at the emergency electric bilge pump that is much farther forward
    way up underneath one of these floorboards and of course we have the
    high capacity hand operated bilge pump in the hanging Locker normally we try to dry the gear before
    it goes into this locker but even if it did go in here wet any water would just
    drip down into the bilge work its way there there’s a nice big shelf up here
    another shelf a little further down plenty of storage space and this is also
    where we keep all of our flares and emergency signaling equipment. This is
    also where the emergency hand operated bilge pump is located. What was in this
    space originally was a Whalegusher 25. It wasn’t installed properly the
    discharge went directly out over the side of the boat without a high loop so
    it was very easy for sea water or rain water just to back right down
    that discharge hose and settled inside of the pump. A proper discharge loop starts
    at the discharge thruhull going out the side of the boat and then goes up
    just as high as possible before it goes back down to the pump so
    when I went to rebuild this it was so heavily corroded inside it just wasn’t
    repairable so we replaced it with a very high capacity Edison pump it’s a
    tremendous pump it’ll pump one gallon per stroke if I had two inch hoses on
    there but because of area restrictions in the hose run I could only put in one
    and three-quarter inch hoses so it’s a little bit less than one gallon per
    stroke. On the discharge side I have a very high loop but also one of these
    see-through check valves certainly it’s not the best idea to have a check valve
    in any kind of a discharge bilge pump but at sea water no other water is going
    to be backing up and just sitting in this pump it’s going to be fully
    functional if we ever need it down here is where all the water in the boat
    collects in a stainless steel sump that measures six inches by eight inches
    across so it’s a very tight squeeze putting the pump and the float switch in
    here but I can squeeze it out, take it all
    apart and clean it out occasionally because muck does at times keep the
    float from going up and down properly is over here this is the sump discharge
    from the shower so the shower pan goes through that green pipe and comes out
    into the sump here and then gets pumped overboard the important part though is
    to put a screen on the end of that discharge otherwise you get all
    of this muck they hear the soap scum everything you would go into the sump it
    helped to clog up the pump so this way we capture it in the screen I can take
    it out dump it into the garbage can wash out this little plastic screen and then
    slip it back on keep all that hair and gunk from clogging up the most important
    bill bilge pump on the boat now I’ll take you up forward and show you the
    emergency backup bilge pump that has never seen water and hopefully it never
    will. in this forward bilge area, this is an area that just never should ever get wet so water has to get
    in this bilge up to this float switch of course before it’ll finally turn on so
    that’s pretty darn high in this bilge area when it does turn on we have that
    round alarm this is the largest bilge pump I could possibly fit in this area
    and you can see there’s no way that I could attach it at the base like you
    normally would it’s held in place with this PVC pipe
    that I just cut the section out of to make a ring that hole slips over the top
    and then this PVC horizontal piece is attached to that ring and then to each
    side to the vertical piece attached to the frame of the boat to finish up in the hanging locker this
    is where we store the hatch boards we have these two teak twist locks that
    securely hold them in place and then the hatch screens get stuffed on the far
    side of those and they’re wedged in nice and securely… and this is the pantry it
    was way back in here this is the single sideband radio and of course the control
    head for that radio is at the nav station the next shelf down is more food
    and then the very bottom shelf is a lot of hand tools which are always getting
    used as they’re in a very convenient spot along with over here in the galley
    we have all these drawers but this drawer is dedicated not to silverware
    well it’s not aware that I like to use more than all the other, because we’re
    always using all kinds of screwdrivers all the Phillips head or on that side
    and the flat heads are on this side these are always being used I can’t be
    digging out things from the engine room or some other storage space all the
    time but one thing I changed very quickly on this boat were these little
    finger holes with the latch behind I could only imagine my finger breaking
    out in the middle of an ocean and in fact a commenter on one of the earlier
    videos on galley tips said that’s exactly what happened to him he was
    reaching in to unlatch the door the boat hit a wave and his finger broke 90
    degrees in anticipation of something like that happening I did away with
    those latches and I installed these twist lock latches up here I’m actually surprised that they’ve
    lasted over 12 years now this is 2019 but just as a backup we have
    this little latch down here in fact in rough weather when things might be
    coming out and slamming against the door we always put on these extra security
    latches at the top of the door to help hold these open especially in rough
    weather are these Springs so the door can’t close push and now it’ll close
    easily so we don’t have to fight with the door along the ocean so to close the
    hatch you just pop the spring thumbs down real quick and easy any
    water that becomes a waterfall down this companionway which has happened out in
    bad storms will come down and eventually work its way down to this grating and
    then just simply runs down into the bilge.. another great idea.. oh hey there
    Lily she just woke up from her little hiding spot way in the back of the boat. I
    really like the layout of the aft cabin. Underneath this cushion is the V Drive
    and the transmission so it’s very accessible this white panel pulls out
    and up here is the storage cabinet and the bunk is 6 feet 10 inches long in
    four feet wide the only problem that I can really see is this side deck in this
    location the person sleeping on the outside can have a little difficulty
    crawling over the person on the inside. (but that could be a nice thing!)
    Underneath this area it’s all storage it is full of stuff all kinds of spares
    there’s no personal storage here there’s all kinds of electrical supplies wires
    in the back section is the hot water heater the regulators for the hooker and
    the scuba tank are stored way down in here just all kinds of repairs and
    Spares. and of course way down underneath here are the batteries we have six
    Trojan batteries golf cart batteries (T-105) one day I’d like to get caught up with
    modern technology and get some lighter batteries that have equal if not more
    amperage capacity I like the way the galley is laid out
    and actually the nice close U shape so you can’t really bang around too far
    you can always brace yourself against something while you’re working around
    the galley it’s a really good idea also on this boat we have a galley strap so
    we can lean against it while we’re cooking
    or at another position we can actually lean forward and keep from
    being thrown into the stove these countertops are solid plastic it was
    originally Formica and this work was done in Cartagena Columbia by a man
    named Eder who does a lot of this work and he did a pretty good job it is in
    Corian quality but it’s the next best thing and for $800 for doing
    everything here I think we got a pretty good deal this is a soap dispenser this
    is fresh water foot pump saltwater foot foot pump and this is the product water
    for the reverse osmosis system that we never use we just don’t need it we get
    all of our fresh water from the faucet on shore from the rain and sometimes a
    very clear stream but for washing dishes we use the salt water we rinse in salt
    water and then rinse in the fresh water we hardly ever use the pressure water we
    only use the pressure water really at the sink occasionally because we have a
    filter down below to filter the water that comes out of the fresh water tank
    and Rebecca likes to use that I’m not nearly as fussy about the water I drink.
    and back here is a big storage bin way down to the bottom of the boat all kinds
    of pots and pans we don’t have anything out here because I try to clean up for
    our ‘company’ and threw it all down here to hide it out of the way like throwing
    it under the carpet yeah we don’t normally live like this… and over here is
    the refrigerator yeah we got the freezer here it goes down very deep normally we keep these exercise mats on top of
    the refrigerator to help with insulation a lot of this is covered in video number
    22 which is galley tips and you’ll also get a very good look way down inside of
    the freezer how we defrost it and the things that we put in there to help aid
    the airflow in the freezer also in video number 20 about provisioning we go
    through a lot of these lockers pull things out and show a lot of different
    foods and how to store items on your boat and what to buy what not to buy
    while you’re out cruising long distance there’s tons of storage back here
    Bob Perry did a great job of using all the storage capacity on this boat and I’ll
    show you more of it as we move around these cabinets are full of dishes and
    cups all kinds of silverware so we’re not lacking at all for storage capacity
    well I hope other people have had better luck with their gourmet II princess
    stove than what we have had. we installed the stove in 2012. right from the get-go
    we had problems with rust it was rusting just way too fast and
    then up on the burners there was always a yellow flame and the company just
    wasn’t that helpful with us trying to figure it all out but eventually after
    trying so many different things we discovered that it was the caps that
    were not manufactured quite right and so when we got new caps and put those on at
    her own expense through a different source that took care of the yellow
    flame and now we have some nice blue flames the way they were supposed to be the original pot supports for this stove
    seem like in no time they started flaking off hunks of rust so we had to
    have new ones made out of 304 stainless and these are holding up far better
    sinks this sink on the port side was originally made far too deep seawater
    would back up through the drain hole and flood the sink when we’re just slightly
    heeled over to port. when this sink was about 38 years old I just couldn’t
    patch it up anymore on the bottom it was just rusting through so much that
    Davao City Philippines we had this one made to replace it and I only made it
    about an inch and a half less deep I probably should have gone to two or
    maybe even three inches less deep just to make sure that we are well above the
    waterline but it’s been adequate but this is simple to make the old one
    actually I cut out with an angle grinder starting from one side work down the
    bottom and brought up it was very simple to do and then just took it out and the
    people at the sheetmetal shop used that as the template for making this new one
    so it’s very simple to make with the curved sides and the very flat back and
    the flat front and it does have the flanges on each side for mounting up
    underneath these sink on the starboard side of the galley this is 43 years old
    now and it’s rusting on the bottom I haven’t had a patch it up just yet but
    when we haul out in Durban South Africa in a couple of months we’ll have a new
    one made there the sink on the port side was this 304 stainless hopefully in
    Durban they’ll have some 316 stainless to make this new sink. Once again time
    has really gotten away from me I just keep seeing more and more things to
    point out as we go through the boat so certainly there’s gonna be a part 3 part
    4 maybe even a part 5 we’ll just keep it going until we run out a boat hey but
    thanks a lot for all of the positive comments that you have been making
    that’s great encouragement to keep doing what we’re doing
    also of course if you can click on the thumbs up button down there and
    especially the subscribe if you haven’t done already that’ll be a big help so
    thanks again and we’ll see in a couple weeks for the
    next part of the Valiant 40 Tour – down below

    Lecture – 4 Frictional Resistance

    August 18, 2019


    Good afternoon, again. We will talk about
    frictional resistance now. William Froude in the 1860’s and later on his son R E Froude
    conducted a number of experiments on Planck’s to have a formulation for frictional resistance.
    William Froude gave a formulation for frictional resistance based on plancks experiments he
    did a number of experiments on plancks that is of a particular length and height submerged
    in water and them and measured the resistance. Based on the plancks experiments he gave a
    formulation: R is equal to- mind you, this is purely frictional formulation- f S V to
    the power n, this was the original formula. In the original formula resistance was given
    in pounds, pound force, S was in feet square and speed was in feet per second. But, now
    you can convert the formula to metric units, f and n being two constants where f n was
    dependent on length of the body- length of the planck- and f was dependent on the surface
    finish of the planck. That is William Froude was the also the first person to detect that
    frictional resistance would depend on the roughness of the surface.
    So, since, Reynolds’s number was not explicitly used in this the n factor varied based on
    the lengths, for which we conducted experiments for various lengths. And lengths were not
    very large, the lengths were up to a limit when you can tow it in a towing tank, mainly
    the towing tank at Torquay where he did most of his experiments in England. F was dependent
    on the surface finish, you have more roughness at the surface as f increased; he varnished
    the surfaces, he roughened the surfaces by sand paper he also put sand particles on the
    surfaces to make it more rough. So, from very smooth to very rough surfaces he tested, and
    he gave a set of values which were used till quite late- may be till mid fifties- as a
    method of estimating the frictional drag of Planck’s two dimensional bodies and even
    ships. Slowly, there came this gentleman Osborne
    Reynolds who said, who made a lot of experiments of flow through pipes. I suppose you might
    have read about Reynolds experiments of flow through pipes where, he allowed water to flow
    through pipes- through glass pipes- so that he could observe the flow pattern. And of
    course, if you take, clean water flows through nothing happened, but then he injected dyes
    at the surface; Osborne Reynolds realized that there must be a friction between the
    surface of the solid particle, solid pipe and the fluid flowing through, so he injected
    dye at the surface and saw the moment of the dye.
    What he found is very interesting. That, as the dye started leaving the surface for some
    length, the dye flew in straight line form. That is, there is a pattern in the flow of
    the dye, it went, it separated from the surface. But it went more or less parallel to the surface
    slowly separating, but as the length of the dye injection point moved away from the fluid
    particles, that is, the fluid flew over longer distance, the fluid got disturbed and it mixed
    up with water, leaving no pattern. This also he found that the length, the distance over
    which the dye maintained a pattern- you understand what I am saying- the dye maintained a pattern
    of flow more or less parallel to the surface ,you know, if this was the dye, dye injected
    here moved like this and then it got mixed up. This distance was some distance, which
    he saw that the fluid would flow smoothly, and then got mixed up. He observed that this
    smoothness of flow, the length of smooth flow reduced if we increase the speed- speed of
    water- that is, this length was dependent on speed.
    Now, this, he said the speed at which the water, the dye got mixed up with water, he
    called it the critical speed, and a critical speed by experiments- repeated experiments-
    he found the critical speed as 2000 mu by D or Vc D by mu is equal to 2000. Now, you
    see what is this quantity? This is Reynolds number, do you get that? So, he found that
    2000 Reynolds numbers was critical for the fluid to mix up with the water, and before
    2000, the water, this did not mix up with the water, what do you infer from this?
    Yes, up to about 2000 Reynolds number in a pipe the flow was of one pattern and after
    2000 the flow was of another pattern. Now, we know that a boundary layer will develop
    next to a solid boundary. Now, the boundary layer will be zero at the beginning and slowly
    increase in thickness, and up to a certain length the fluid inside it will have a predominant,
    will have a velocity which is predominantly parallel to the axis of the pipe till here-
    you understand- though there will be a velocity gradient, that is, velocity will vary from
    the pipe end, till the end of the boundary layer there will be velocity gradient as we
    have discussed previously, but at each point the velocity will be primarily in this direction-
    do you understand- that is how he can observe the fluid, the dye going like this, but beyond
    a certain point the fluid velocity will become totally random- a overlying flow will be there.
    But if you take what we call perturbation velocity, that over the flow of pipe, main
    flow here, the small little velocities that determine the particle direction at any point,
    that will be random, that can go parallel, that can go perpendicular upwards, perpendicular
    downwards or backwards, am I clear? This is what he found, that is, though there
    will be overlying flow velocity in one direction, for a certain range of Reynolds number, the
    perturbation velocity of each particle inside the boundary layer will be parallel to the
    axis of the pipe, but beyond a certain Reynolds number that perturbation velocity will be
    randomly distributed in all directions- that is how the fluid gets mixed up.
    This is very interesting and that is what we call laminar boundary layer and turbulent
    boundary layer. That is, this we can call laminar boundary layer; that is, the boundary
    layer can be laminar or turbulent, am I clear? And what is laminar boundary layer? As we
    have said that the velocities inside the boundary layer will be predominantly parallel to the
    axis or parallel to the surface, if you say three dimensional surfaces, will be parallel
    to a surface; and in turbulent boundary layer the velocities will be random inside the boundary
    layer. Now, we have already seen in case of ships
    R F can be represented by frictional resistance coefficient as R F divided by half rho S V
    square. To estimate C F we do not have much information from the pipe experiment, where
    people way back in early twentieth century, a theoretical exposition was given to flow
    around plancks for laminar flow by a man called Blasius.
    So, we have the Blasius formulation for laminar flow and the resistance of a planck to laminar
    flow; that is the Blasius formulation for laminar flow. Now, this also does not fulfill
    our requirement because flow around ships is basically turbulent. Now, you see, we have
    given, Osborne Reynolds gave the critical Reynolds number for a pipe as 2000; now, in
    case of ships it will change because you do not have a diameter, and the flow phenomenon
    may be different, it will be primarily dependent on length factor, but how much length, we
    will see. There will also be a critical Reynolds number in case of ships where flow will change
    from laminar to turbulent. Now, imagine the ship is a long thin body,
    water is flowing past it, initially, at the beginning of the flow where length is small
    just like in pipes there will be a portion when the flow will be laminar, and as the
    length increases, Reynolds number increases, flow will turn to turbulent. There will be
    a zone between laminar and turbulent where there will be a transition from laminar to
    turbulent and is very difficult to define where that zone will be, because, understand
    that ship will also have a surface which is not strictly smooth nor is it very rough if
    you are talking of a new ship. Similarly, ship is also different from the point of view
    that it is not like a planck, it is a three dimensional surface. So, much can be understood,
    that initially there may be a portion where there will be some laminar flow and then the
    flow will become turbulent. This is definitely shown in models, in ships this is slightly
    reduced, this effect of laminar flow is slightly reduced because the ship surface is generally
    having enough roughness to induce turbulence even at the early stages of flow, at the beginning.
    So, we consider the flow around a ship to be mostly turbulent flow.
    Now, Prandtl and von Karman in 1921 gave a formulation. For theoretical formulation again,
    for C F in boundary layer, in turbulent boundary layer, which is, mind you, this was also Planck’s,
    two dimensional flow without any edge effect and as if the flow was only in two dimension
    without having any So, this showed if I draw the two curves, if I draw as a function of
    Reynolds numbers, this should be something like laminar flow and this should be something
    like turbulent flow- this is C F, this is laminar, this is turbulent, now, say this
    is Prandtl and von Karman, and this is Blasius. See the difference- Turbulent flow has completely
    different characteristics from laminar flow. So, if you take laminar flow, then we are
    bound to get into turbulent- you will be underestimating the resistance. Then in nineteen forties and early fifties, a gentlemen called Schoenherr in the United States did
    a lot of experiments or rather collected a lot of data on Planck experiments, took the
    Prandtl and von Karman formulation- see Prandtl and von Karman formulation is basically a
    theoretical formulation- so, he took all the Planck data available till that time, resistance
    data, and took the theoretical formulation of Prandtl and von Karman and tried to fit
    all the resistance data in a statistical manner following the formulation of Prandtl and von
    Karman, and he arrived at friction line for two dimensional flow- we will not elaborate
    more than this, we will only say two dimensional flow, now, whether it is correct or not was
    not known at that time, but it was thought to be better than the Prandtl and von Karman
    formulation. So, the formulation that we got by Schoenherr’s
    line was like this. So, you see, the C F occurring on both sides, so, it is not a very straight
    forward calculation- C F equal to so much and you calculate the right hand side you
    get that- you have to do a little bit of iteration process to arrive at some value where the
    C F on the right hand side and the left hand side are equal. Anyway, this is Schoenherr’s
    line, Schoenherr’s friction line which was accepted by A T T C- American Towing tank
    Conference- called the A T T C line. Till this time, till this line came the background
    of this is only plancks, smooth plancks stored in water and from there this line, this was
    the first early fifties. Then, around the same time a gentleman called Hughes was doing
    a large number of experiments in UK with pontoons which were not pontoon cross section- you
    see if you want two dimensional bodies and should be nice and smooth like long narrow
    bodies without any separation effect. And he did a large number of experiments with
    pontoons where this bodies were wall sided and he did large number of experiments, which
    is said were also having two dimension flow. So, he went up to hundred feet length pontoons,
    moved them in open sea, not open sea, open tanks and collected all the planck experiment,
    all the pontoon experiment, put all the data together and he came up with the formulation
    of frictional resistance which is given as: I will use the term CF0 now, 0 indicating
    two dimensional flow. So, this was the Hughes frictional line. You see there are, this was
    predominantly two dimensional flow, which varied a little bit from Schoenherr’s line,
    but nearly same- one would not say nearly same- but one would not say same, one can
    only say nearly same, having differences at lower Reynolds numbers, but at higher Reynolds
    numbers becoming more or less equal. Around this time the international towing
    tank conference was meeting and this was a debate- what should be a ship friction line
    so that we can use it for model and ship as per our model experimental procedure? And
    they are debating quite a lot. In 1957, Schoenherr’s line and Hughes line
    were both brought to I T T C and I T T C reached wisdom, decided that Hughes line was more
    nearer to two dimensional flow friction line, and with this as basis they formulated a line
    which is slightly different from here, to make it easier what they did is, this 2.03
    that you see here was reduced to 2 and this was slightly increased. So, the I T T C line came to be, this became
    the I T T C friction line, which as you can see is slightly higher than Hughes friction.
    Now, at this point of time I T T C did not want to say this is a frictional line because,
    though large number of experiments were done by this time for two dimensional flow, whenever
    you are talking about two dimensional flow there will be a end somewhere- if you have
    a pontoon, that must have a closure that disturbs the flow.
    Plus what happens to three dimensional flow? That was also something not known and people
    were still groping in the dark and the resistances that were predicted from model experiments
    were using any of this three lines did not match very well with full scale trails that
    were done in various, at various times starting with way around in 1800’s.
    So, there are still some lacuna therefore, I T T C in its wisdom thought that tailing
    it as a friction line will be limiting it. So, they said this line as ship model correlation
    line that is, this line will be used to correlate the model resistance with the ship resistance
    that is, the same line will be used to calculate CF0 for model and for ship, am I clear?
    There is another difference between a ship frictional resistance and a model frictional
    resistance model. Model, normally made of wax or wood finished to very nice finish or
    f r p is very smooth; and ship is whatever you do, you can never get that smoothness.
    If we measure the ship roughness in microns, it will be the order of 100 and 25 microns-
    micron is 10 to power minus 9- and if you measure that for a model, it will be 25 microns-
    nearly that of glass, a well finished model. So, then, you can see the roughness in ship
    is much more than the model- that had to be accounted for extrapolation to model scale.
    So, apart from that they also said the ship must be given a correlation allowance- this
    is correlation line- on top of this there must be written, given a correlation allowance
    CAA they called it or CA as 0.4 into 10 to the power minus 3- for extrapolating the ship
    resistance, model resistance to ship resistance, that is CTm is equal to CF0m plus CRm; CRm
    is equal to CRs; and CTs is equal to CF0s- using the same formulation- plus CRs, which
    is nothing, but equal to CRm plus CA, is that clear?
    Now, comes, we still have not talked about the three dimensional effect on friction,
    ship body is three dimensional; I have been telling this from the beginning. So far whatever
    formulation we have got, including the I T T C formulation, is predominantly two dimensional-
    do I make myself clear? – if it is predominantly two dimensional, I T T C has made a very feeble
    effort at adding a small allowance to Hughes resistance, but it is not really three dimensional,
    because three dimensional effect on two dimensional resistance should be quite large- should be.
    So, for this purpose a lot of work has been done and we can try and find out if we can
    determine what is a three dimensional form effect. In that case, we can say CF is equal to one
    plus k CF0; so, CF0 is two dimensional frictional resistance co-efficient and the k is the so
    called form factor or a factor by which the frictional resistance increases for a three
    dimensional body above a two dimensional body. It can be understood that CF0 here will be
    using I T T C frictional line. You see, when we said CT is equal to CF plus CR, this CF
    was function of Reynolds number, this CR was function of Froude number, now we are saying
    that, actually this CF is slightly more than the I T T C CF. So, if I say this CF0 into
    one plus k, if I write it here like this, then this whole thing is depends on Reynolds
    number, and this thing depends on Froude number, am I making myself clear? The extrapolation
    laws are different, the CR extrapolation is same as that of ship, CF extrapolation is
    by using the I T T C friction line which we have discussed, this k is a part of CF. So,
    previously this k was not a part of CF and it was taken same as this component of k into
    CF0, was taken same as ship and models am I understood, are you getting what I am saying
    or you are not getting? Now, the problem is, suppose we say this is
    correct, how do you determine k, how do you determine k, after all when you move a ship
    we are getting the total resistance, how do you get, in fact, we did not get even CF0
    so we have taken a I T T C line, how do we get k now?
    We can see, we can use some basic physical phenomena to understand this. Suppose, my
    ship is moving at very low speed- one or 2 knots- I have hardly any wave making, we have
    seen that wave making is a phenomena of speed, so if my ship is moving at very low speed
    the total resistance is only frictional in nature. So, I can tow a model at very low
    speed, measure the resistance- that gives me total frictional resistance. If I write
    it down at low fn, CR is equal to 0, so CT is equal to 1 plus k CF0- c f 0 I know-so,
    1 plus k equal to c t divided by CF0 at low Froude number, am I right? This is the basis
    on which we can calculate k for the model and use the same k for the ship. There are
    some assumptions we have made in this that k is independent of speed, that is k will
    be same over the entire speed range, otherwise doing it at low speed we cannot use it at
    higher speed- it is a fair assumption, I do not think it is very unfair, that is a fair
    assumption. But there are some practical problems; at
    low speed the resistance itself will be very low, you know, in any experimental procedure
    there is always some small error, and this small error over a small quantity when you
    manipulate with this by dividing things we can get a very large error- that is, k itself
    can be largely erroneous while dealing with small speeds. If your experiments are very
    accurate you will tend towards getting the accurate result, but this is a method which
    has been accepted by I T T C, and if you can do speed measurements and resistance measurements
    at very low speed accurately this should give you reasonably good value of k. Normally,
    it is recommended that this measurements should be done at f n equal to 0.1, Froude number
    0.1, normally, you should do this speed measurement. There is another method by which we can estimate
    k value, I will briefly tell you. If I write down CT is equal to 1 plus k- now,
    I can drop CF0 and write CF always, meaning CF means 2 dimensional or I T T C line and
    when I write 1 plus k it becomes three dimensional- CR, we have seen is a function of Froude number,
    it can be roughly said to be a function of a power of Froude number between 4 to 6. So,
    I have this, I divide the whole thing by CF, then I get CT by CF is equal to 1 plus k plus
    CFn to the power n divided by CF. So, then, if I know this n value and this C value, then
    I can calculate 1 plus k. Now, this is now possible using some mathematical technique,
    you can fit a curve to the equation, to a resistance curve, find out the value of n
    and C to the residuary resistance and calculate the value of k.
    This is other method which is also recommended by I T T C. But as you know since the errors
    are not constant over the entire speed range, measurement range and neither are there positive
    errors- always the error can be positive or negative- this type of fitment, regression
    equation fitment to find out what is the value of n and c can also give erroneous results.
    So, the result is, why am I talking about all this things? The result is, though we
    know that there is a three dimensional friction resistance and we make an attempt to estimate
    it our estimation is always a suspect, am I clear? Let us see by plotting the resistance graph
    what information we can get. If I put Reynolds number here and CT here, CT CF, we will see
    what. The I T T C friction line will go like this, if you see the friction formulation
    we have given, you will find it will decrease with increasing Reynolds number, so this is
    CF, I can write here I T T C so that we do not confused. As the Reynolds number increases
    CF reduces. On top of this let me plot my model resistance curve, let me plot this;
    now at lower speed- this is actually low speed, this is higher speed, this Reynolds number
    range for the model is accelerated here, it would not even be so much, it will be something
    like this- so, at low speed, as we have discussed, this resistance, there is no wave making resistance
    or no CR and the entire resistance is CF because this is I T T C friction line, what we see
    here is our actual resistance is higher than the I T T C friction line, so if we take that
    as the friction line as if that gives us the k, here this value divided by this value gives
    us 1 plus k, so if we now plot, multiply this c f I T T C with 1 plus k we will get a line
    more or less parallel to the this line . Now, we can plot the ship resistance curve on top
    of this- this is the ship Reynolds number. So, if the, this was CR, same CR will come
    here; this CR is same, how much is this? This is k into CF, this much; similarly, this much
    will be the CFm k into CFs. So, this whole amount will be 1 plus k CFs, is that clear? This we can utilize, this principle we can
    utilize for determining the k by doing a set of tests which is called Geogism Tests. That
    is, I make two models of the ship to two different scalars; I can make a model of 5 meters length
    of a 125 meter Blasius scale- 1 is to 25 ratio and another I can make 1 is to 36 ratio. If
    I do two models and I get these two curves- actually, this is Reynolds number- I get a
    CT of one model and a CT of the other model; then, at the constant Froude numbers the CR
    will be same and the remaining part will be one plus k CF ; if I got my CF here, CF ITTC
    already got, and if I join the same Froude number lines, this should be parallel to each
    other if what I am telling is correct because the CF is same, and from here I can see which
    line it is parallel to and I can draw them as one plus k CF.
    See, in this case, we extrapolate it- please understand this- this is ship, this is model;
    in the previous case, we had only this line and we had this line, we estimated k and drew
    this line, plotted this and found the ship curve, we extrapolate it. Here in Geogism
    test this is model 1 and this is model 2, both these are available with us, both the
    data is available with us- understood?- so, it is easier for us to calculate the k by
    drawing the constant Froude number lines right till the end and if there is an error we can
    fair the curve so these are parallel to each other because the CR is constant, and then
    we can have a better estimate of k value, am I clear, no? CT model 1 is equal to CF into 1 plus k, CF1
    into 1 plus k plus CR. CT model 2- remember, we are doing at corresponding speeds, I need
    not mention it every time- CR is same. So, now, deduct CT1 minus CT2 is equal to CF1
    minus CF2 1 plus k- all these four quantities are known. Yes, we do it for a number of speeds,
    number of Froude numbers, and you will get 1 plus k values, they should be same, but
    because of experimental inaccuracies you will not get the same values, but you will get
    nearly same values and we can take the average, that will give us the exact k value. From
    Geogism test it is possible to estimate the k value exactly, but of course, it is very
    expensive and should we be doing it at all, should we be doing the test so much, what
    are you looking for? You are looking for an estimate of resistance so that you can satisfy
    the trial condition requirement and the service condition requirement.
    Service condition requirement as we have seen is not very well known, we can just leave
    a margin on the trail resistance to satisfy any service condition. We will go for more
    accurate prediction process- spending more money by doing Geogism test or whatever only
    if it benefits us in an economic sense. Now, if, suppose we did not use k, what will be
    extrapolated? Suppose, we extrapolate ship resistance as
    this only, this is as per I T T C, and CRm as we have calculated by deducting I T T C,
    what are you doing, are you over estimating the ship resistance or are you underestimating,
    can you tell me, if we do not use one plus k what are you doing we are?
    For the ship we are overestimating, we are on the higher side because the CF which is
    reducing the speed is a small value, we have not multiplied with 1 plus k, CR has remained
    same, more percentage of resistance we have taken to the residuary part and that is remaining
    same. So, actually, you are predicting the resistance which is higher because you have
    ignored the three dimensional frictional form effects. So, you are on the safe side. If
    you take from factor, then you will become more accurate and your power prediction will
    reduce. So, that is beneficial from the point of view of actual economy- did you get it?-
    but it is fraught with the danger if it is not estimated properly, then you may underestimate
    this. So, the k has to be estimated very well, if you are unable to estimate k properly,
    do not use it- that is the advice that can be given.
    So, if you look at the towing tanks world over, you will find that sometimes you use
    a form factor sometimes you do not use a form factor, I T T C has left it open by saying
    that the phenomenon of three dimensional frictional resistance effects are not very well known,
    is that clear? So, now, you do your model experiments, the procedure is known to you
    and you can extrapolate from models scale to full scale. We will stop here, thank you. Gentlemen, yesterday, we had seen, we have
    talked about frictional resistance of ships, let us talk about wave making resistance today. But before that just to brush up we had said
    before that total resistance of a ship comprises of two parts, that is, RF plus RR, frictional
    resistance, plus residuary resistance- this was based on Froude’s law of similarity.
    R f, we had seen is primarily the two dimensional frictional resistance or something similar
    to flat planck resistance, frictional resistance. This RF we said we calculated using I T T
    C frictional line of 1957 and the residuary resistance was told to be the remaining part
    of resistance. If we divided the ships total resistance into two parts, that is, the two
    dimensional frictional resistance RF, then the remaining part of the total resistance
    was called the residuary resistance. If we go back further than that, in our first
    class have decided the various components of resistance, which we will again see in
    the next lecture, you will recall that we had said that the frictional resistance, the
    two dimensional frictional resistance alone is not the total component of viscous resistance,
    there would be some other components of viscous resistance, which may be small in quantity,
    but they are there and they are not included in this I T T C fifty seven line. Similarly,
    when we talked about pressure resistance, we said the pressure resistance is equal to
    the wave making resistance, but there could be some interference between the frictional
    resistance and pressure resistance there by giving something we called viscous pressure
    drag I have got a wave like this, now I have got
    another set of waves starting from here going like this, and this is my water line here,
    and this is for this wave, this is a water line. If I add this up what am I getting?
    This wave will come like this, as it is coming and here it will increase, this plus this-
    is it not- and this is after the ship. Therefore, it will push the ship forward, we have seen
    the pressure increase in the aft, supports motion- is that clear?- that means, the resistance
    will reduce, yes. On the other hand, if there is a trough here,
    suppose this was a tough, then what will you get? This will flatten out that means, the
    support that you were getting, at least here, you are not getting any more, so there is
    an increase in resistance, am I understood? So, the interference of the waves will either
    increase the resistance or decrease the resistance, or it may not matter- any of this can happen-
    this interference will depend on the speed of the ship. Now, when the wave is moving
    forward, the ship is moving forward- since it is generating waves- as it moves forward
    the transverse wave will have a velocity equal to the velocity of the ship.
    Therefore, the transverse wave length, wave length of transverse wave will be equal to
    two pi v square by g, where v is the speed of the ship. You imagine this is my ship,
    they are the transverse wave, these waves will move at the same speed as the ship. I
    have identified wave crest as one parameter which will give me the wave making resistance,
    forward wave crest is the prime component of the total wave making resistance- prime
    variable. So, to reduce that one of the matters I can adopt is to reduce the angle at the
    water line itself because as I go down the effect of the slope will be reduced on the
    free surface, I know that, it will be there, but it will be reduced as the height, as the
    point dips more and more below the free surface. So, maximum impact is of that slope near the
    waterline. So, if I can reduce the slope on the water line, then I can control my wave
    making resistance. And this angle is called half angle of entrance,
    is that clear? So, I have, we have seen the effect of length on wave making resistance,
    we have seen the effect of speed on wave making resistance, now we have seen the effect of
    half angle of entrance. Now, this gives you a very interesting observation, if I reduce
    the beam, see after all a ship has to carry a lot of, it has to have a particular volume
    of displacement, that I can give over smaller length larger breadth or longer length smaller
    breadth. So, if I have a narrower ship, then this angle will be less that is, if my l by
    b ratio is increasing, then my wave making resistance is coming down, my half angle of
    entrance is automatically down- that is one way, and there are many other ways. In the
    next hour we will see what is the effect of the thank you. Good afternoon, we will talk about other components
    of resistance. We have actually seen how the frictional resistance around a ship can be
    estimated, we have seen the physics of wave making around a ship hulk, we have also seen
    that waves when they interfere with each other it can be supportive to motion or opposing
    the motion. Basically, we have seen that wave making resistance has a component, a major
    component which is proportional to speed raised to the power six and over which there are
    small humps and hollows created due to interference of the bow stern and half shoulder, forward
    shoulder waves- this what we have seen in the this thing.
    Now, can we utilize this interference in a manner that we can reduce the bow wave component
    itself? We have said before that if I have a submarine below the water surface I will
    still have a wave effect, just below the water surface, because the depth is not very large,
    so that the effect will not be there, can we utilize this? For example, I have got a
    ship which generates a bow wave system, can I have a body, a sphere for example, somewhere
    below the surface in the front of the ship, which is placed in such a location that it
    creates a wave turf, where a bow wave crust exists. Cform is the form component which
    takes it to account the major difference, the major portion of the augment of resistance,
    augment of viscous resistance over two dimensional form factor, two dimensional friction resistance,
    do you get my point? That is, Cform I can say is mainly augment
    of two dimensional frictional resistances on total viscous resistance, so we can say
    c form includes the three dimensional friction form effect, it also includes some amount
    of separation drag component and viscous component. Imagine, separation we have said is related
    to velocity and pressure, they will change with velocity of the ship so if it something
    at low speed, it cannot be the same at high speed. So, truly speaking we have not taken
    this into total account, that is why I am saying mainly- the word mainly is important
    there, it is no total. There is a problem here, we have already discussed
    for a normal ship how difficult or how accurate it is to extrapolate to full scale, in the,
    we have said the c form- form co-efficient, we have talked about- we have said there are
    some inaccuracies and is not exactly understood. On top of that you have now added appendages,
    so extrapolation may create problem. So, to be on the safer side one could do a naked
    hull resistance test and another the hull modified with appendages and test it; so,
    estimate the appendage drag separately, and extrapolate the ships naked hull resistance
    separately and appendage resistance separately and add them together- that is another way
    you can go ahead and do it. So, these are some of the methods by which
    the ship resistance can be estimated and extrapolated. We will talk about extrapolation once again
    because that is the most important thing- accuracy of the extrapolation method to full
    scale for power prediction. We may look at this if time permits once again later on.
    What other resistance can be there, can you name? For very high speeds there may be a
    spray drag or if the rudder or some such appendage is piercing the water, it may generate spray.
    So, there can be sometimes a spray drag, but normal ships do not have this and even then
    the spray drag may be of less magnitude, so we do not normally consider it. And if we
    go for higher speed, the high speed crafts the resistance characteristics quite different
    and we will talk about it when we talk about high speed crafts. Thank you.

    ⛵️Our SAILBOAT is expired (20 years)!! LTP #088

    August 18, 2019


    So, what are we gonna do this week? Throw a lot of things away. Yeah. I’m Roberta. And I’m Duca. And for the past year we have been building our own tiny shipping container house. Made possible by our Patrons (Thank you!!) So we can travel around knowing that we will always have this little place that we can call home. But guess what? We’ve just found our dream project before we expect: this abandoned sailboat. So we are gonna stop building the house for a couple months to bring our boat back to life. And then we’re gonna go back and finish the house. *New episode every Monday. This boat have been sitting on this hard for I don’t know… 15, 16 maybe 17 years. Nobody knows. So it has a lot of good stuff saved on the cabinets. But also a lot of stuff that are not good anymore. For example… Batteries are not good for 17 years,
    right? So we need to go through all the cabinets and find out exactly what we have and what we can keep and what we can throw away. So, we’re gonna divide these into sections, rooms. The first one’s gonna be the bathroom. Because there are a lot of things there. Look at this. A lot of old medicines. Let’s check it out here. This was supposed to be powder. It’s not powder anymore. Not powder anymore. It’s funny how even the logos of the companies they change over 20 years. Look at this. Now we have this cleaned
    also. And all of this to go through. And we also have the other bathroom and all the medical kits. Let’s get more stuff then. Check this out. Even though they are all expired that’s a
    great source of information. Just to know what kind of medicines they had onboard. So we basically we’re gonna take pictures of these and see if we still need something else. But basically this is a really really complete kit. So? Too many things? Yeah. Way too many things.
    Look at that. This is the amount of products that we found on two bathrooms. Yeah. This was pretty much… all of these were in this, this and this. And a little bit on the other bathroom there. But mostly there. Can you fit a lot of stuff in there? I don’t thing we need all of these. You have anything you can imagine here. Most of these are what? 15, 20 years old. I guess. Most of that is gonna go to the garbage. But it’s just so cool to go through and see what they used to use. And to see the old logos. Most of the expire dates is… 1998. Yeah, so we’re not in 1998 anymore, that means… I guess we are not. Yeah. 20 years expired already. So that means… Yeah, this couple that used to own the boat they travel around Brazil, the coast
    of Brazil in 1997. And most of these are from 1997, when they travel the coast. Let’s take a picture of this. We need a picture, right? Picture time. Getting there? It’s just the beginning. So, all the stuff you saw here before is here now. Let’s put this outside? Do you know
    Santa Claus? Santa Claus has a bag, right? I think we found Santa Claus bag. Check it out. One of the things we thought we would spend a lot of money on the boat is the outside pieces from the rigging, not the rigging but from the sails. This. Another piece. Another one, all in perfect conditions. There are so many good stuff here. I think it’s easier just to take a picture. I’m gonna take a picture of all these.
    Just check it out. Relaxing? Relaxing time. Sometimes you need to stop and rest a little bit, right? We are really tired already. And we have a long way to go. Look at this. If you want to read old news from 96… 97. We can be updated on the politicians and everything. Updated or down dated? Down dated. We need to use newspaper… What’s this? The spare one for the batteries. For the electrical knife. That’s really good. We just keep finding good stuff in the boat. This is for… spare for these ones. By tomorrow the boat is gonna be a lot lighter. Second day of cleaning. And I’m gonna start cleaning the kitchen, the galley. And Duca is not feeling well. He has some headache (sinusites) and he is gonna… Yeah, he has sinusites and he is gonna stay here, meanwhile I’m gonna clean the galley. Third day of cleaning. Duca is feeling better today. And I’m gonna start cleaning the kitchen today so we can use this space for real. So, today it’s gonna be cleaning with products. So, let’s go. There is so much to clean. That’s just the beginning. And to organize. Look at that. The more we touch stuff the more they
    show. Right now I’m organizing all these spare parts for the engine. I’m not sure if they all work. But if they do we have like a second engine inside of the boat. Because there are so many spare parts. That’s so good. That’s just amazing. Even a brand new water pump for the engine, the main engine. So basically the reason why I’m taking all this stuff off there is not because we are not gonna put back. I’m just taking it off to put back. But while do I do that I make sure I know everything we have and I know if there is anything we can take it away and throw away. Because it’s just too much stuff to keep on the boat. I think if there is anything that there
    is an expiration date there’s no reason for us to keep. So, it’s just organizing and
    getting to know what we have. So. Time to put everything back. How’s the cleaning going? Good. I’m really tired. Almost done with the kitchen? Look how shiny is this. See? Now it’s shiny. That’s really really good, actually. I still have a lot to do. I intend to clean this. So for now I’m just cleaning the outside part. And then I’m gonna put this here and clean all this. I don’t know how yet. And I’m gonna start doing this. We need to clean this mess. And this mess. Let’s do it. Where there was nothing. That’s exactly the format. Let me show you the difference between
    both sides. Look at that. That’s the one I cleaned already. That’s the one I didn’t clean yet. And now to make it quicker, because you might be tired of watching me cleaning for this long, I’m gonna just clap my finger and this is gonna be done. Look at that. Now this is all clean. This is gonna be the future editing office. I still need to clean inside. I think we have a lot of glasses. Actually they are all plastic. Now we need to clean this. I just did like this and it’s broken. I don’t know if we can have some glasses. I just did like this. They’re really old actually. Yeah, I think these are gonna be the most garbage. Yeah. And now the big moment. Let’s see if this works. We have a mixer. We got ourselves a mixer. That’s pretty
    good, huh. The most expensive mixer ever. So, this is one bottle of whiskey, right?
    Scotch. Let’s show you the amount we have on the other side. Wait for it. I think we’re gonna take a picture and
    show you the amount of bottles we found here. Actually we though away already one off yesterday. We throw away one. We gave one to the guy that works on the next boat, yeah. It seemed like all right and he wanted it, so we gave him just bottle of cachaça. Let’s take a picture and show you the amount of bottles. So we decided to keep these ones. These 3 are opened but these are all sealed. Yeah, and whiskey mostly I think if
    they’re old is fine. Because they were not on the sun, they were really well insulated. So I guess it’s gonna be fine. Of course we’re gonna give it to some friends to try first and then we can cook with it. Because we don’t drink we are gonna use
    that for cooking. We can cook for like 10 years now. Maybe more. That’s pretty good. Yeah, even more. Next up. Tired. Look at that. Do you guys remember how it was before? The bathroom. Look at it now. Way better. So, way better. Good job. Is that good? Yeah. Proud? Yeah. This one I did by myself. She says that I’m the public relations, I just talk to everyone in the marina while she cleans. That’s true. But that’s important also. Because we need to find good people, we need help and… It’s part of the job. Day 5 of cleaning. So today we have a hard job. Dirt job. Dirty one. This boat is known as a really really
    dry boat inside, not much water can come inside. But it’ve been sitting here for
    20 years, right? So, what happens then? There are some leaks from the hatches. And this water needs to go to somewhere. So, this water keep adding to here. It’s not much. But it’s pretty deep and I
    don’t know if you can see it if it goes all the way there. So basically we need to
    open this, this, this and this and see how we can take this water off. Let’s do it. That’s it. I’m tired. That’s was a long 5 days. Yeah. I’m really tired. The plan for this week was basically just to clean up the boat and decide what was good and what was bad. What we want to throw away what we
    wanted to keep. And to clean all the boat. But why that? Because we need to plan what we need to do next. Yeah, we didn’t start the refit yet. That was just a pre refit. Basically that just so we can get ourselves organized and we get to know the boat better. Otherwise we cannot plan what to do first what to do next. Basically now next week we are gonna divide the sections of the boat. For example: paint. We’re gonna paint the whole boat outside. But we didn’t decide yet if we’re gonna take the whole paint off, if we’re gonna just sand what it has and take off the loose parts and then paint over it. We didn’t decide yet. So that’s one section: paint. Another one is engine. Engine, yeah. We didn’t call yet a mechanical expert to check the engine. This engine is been sitting there without turning on for like 3 years now. Not 20. The guy that used to own the boat used to come here to turn on the engine every once in a while. So he said it’s been off for 3 years. So that’s not that bad for a diesel engine. But still… we don’t have experience enough to judge what we need to do with the engine. What else? Another section is mast. Mast we need some expert also to check out if we need to change all the stays or only the… we can write it somewhere. (Turnbuckles) We don’t know the names yet. And also another section is hydraulics, electrics. So, we need to divide what we need to do in each one of these sections and that’s what we’re gonna do next week. So we can plan the next three months. But for now at least the boat is much more nice to stay inside. I mean like doesn’t smell bad anymore. It didn’t smell that bad. It smelled like closed. Not bad, but not like you know…
    like a fresh ambient. It was better than our old boat. That’s true. But now I feel like just stay in here… you know just hanging out. So I guess we see guys next Monday. We see you next Monday. Join the crew

    Can You Catch Fish in Brown Surf? – Surf Fishing

    August 18, 2019


    Alright, time for everyone’s favorite part of surf fishing. And that is setting up. (sick music) Yup, small little whiting. This is a little – oh no it’s a hardhead. No its a whiting. Jeez. My eyes play tricks on me. All the time. I’m just going to put this guy on as live bait. He’s pretty big for live bait but I don’t know. Nah let’s not. Let just use this guy for cut bait. It’s not going to make much but we can always catch more Well I threw out the big rod with fish bites so I could get out there pretty far Went out to about the third bar and I felt stuff pecking on the way walking back in. And the line already went slack so it could mean there’s already something on there I don’t know man. I dont know what this could be It’s coming to shore, whatever it is It’s a little something. Yeah looks like a hardhead. Oh, no its a huge ladyfish. What in the world That’s the last thing I expect to catch on FIshbites But that shows. Fishbites can catch it all. Or maybe that just means, wherever Coop goes, he’s going to catch a ladyfish. But at least they’re good bait. Alright, let’s get the big rod back out there. See if there’s anything better. We are having this brown water right now though. It could be from an upwelling, but the water still feels pretty warm. So even when the water’s brown like this, it’s not as good as when it’s green but you can still catch stuff at the surf. Let’s just hope I don’t get Vibrio out here. That was a terrible cast. But we’re rolling with it. That was terrible! Alright let’s get my second rod ready to go with some cut ladyfish. Unfortunately, a seagull already stole my whiting when I was casting it out. That’s OK, we’ve got better bait not anyway. When you putting baits on this double dropper rig, and your using bigger baits, always put the larger of the two on the bottom hook. That’ll just help it cast better Or else if you put the big on top, it’s going to kind of helicopter around. Oh my gosh. Had to jump over that wave. Let’s see if I can get over these breakers. It got deep again. The sandbars are just random right now. Alright let’s get it out there That’s not bad actually. Again something’s going on with this rod I’m just going to reel it in and check it. There’s a fish on dude. Or maybe a lot of seaweed. No this is a fish. Probably a small shark. But with my guesses, I’m wrong 90% of the time so let’s find out. It’s got some weight to it though. It could be a stingray. Could be a shark. Could be a redfish. Or a gafftop. Don’t be a gafftop. I think it’s a gafftop. Yeah it’s a gafftop. Dang it. Wow he felt way bigger than what he is. Pretty big gafftop, though. This brown water does usually hold a lot of catfish. Look at all that slime from this catfish. They always leave slime on your leaders. I’m going to get that off. Lets’s do some sampling See if we got any invertebrate around here in this sand. Or we can catch some of these little fish. Got one! What is it? What is that a – is this a little pomp? I think it’s a little pompano. That’s pretty cool. Were are the big ones at though? Looks like these little fish are going up to the wash here. Where there a ton of little invertebrates that get washed out of the sand. Like those coquina shells and different types of uhhh… Alright got this rod back out there. Let’s just reel in this big rod to see if we got bait on there. Oh there’s something on there now. Probably another gafftop. Let’s check it out. Yeah, it’s bouncing around like a little gafftop. You know what? This time I’m going to ahead and guess it’s a little gafftop. Oh he’s fighting back. He’s fighting back. I’m a better fighter though. Man these guys are actually not terrible fighters for their size. A lot smaller. Aww don’t go that way. Where’d he go? He’s coming back for round two. There he goes haha. He’s just a little disoriented. Alright, if you guys want to know one of my secrets baits just take some plain bubble gum and this will catch you a ton of different species (sarcasm) Not many people know about it so don’t tell anyone. please Let’s get this one back out there then we’ll get that one back out there with some cut ladyfish. Well I got hit on the way back in. Just walking it back in and I got a fish on. This is on the fish bites but… Don’t know what kind of fish we got here. Nothing too big. Maybe another gafftop. Even though we got this brown water. There are still a lot of fish out there. And they’re not really everyone favorite species but they’re still fun to catch. Wew there he is. He got dragged in real quick. Man there’s tons of these gafftop out here. Cya bud Can you make it? Nope. Oh that was a bite. Hey relax. Wow chill, buddies. Always water your reels to make sure they will keep growing well. Hey! You stupid… My bait! My bait! You almost go it, didn’t you? It’s funny because seagulls cant even eat something this big. let’s see what we can dig up and strain through the – oh there’s a molecrab. let’s see what we got. Lets pan for gold! Yup there’s a nice molecrab right there. Pretty cool, dude. He’s playing dead. Let’s see how fast he’ll scamper off. Not very fast. There he goes. Alright let’s see what we got. Oh we – what?! what? That’s magic trick right there. A fish – he jumped in. Making it look like I dug him up in the sand.

    News Reporter Chooses Vanlife After Hiking Pacific Crest Trail

    August 18, 2019


    Hey everyone. I’m Liz Bryant and this is
    my Mercedes Sprinter Wild because I’m born wild and sprinting free. I hiked the
    Pacific Crest Trail in 2015 and it took me about five months to get from Mexico
    to the Washington border. After that I went back to normal life
    reporting at NBC San Diego as a reporter that you would see on the 5 and 6
    o’clock news. Within the six months of leaving the trail and going back to my
    career I thought to myself, “what are you doing? You just learned all about what
    adventure is and about what living life is and being out in nature.”
    I started looking at van life on Instagram. I came across it and then for
    the next year and a half researched it every single day. Finally I just said, “I’m
    not researching this anymore. I’m doing it.” Bought of 2016, a brand new at that
    time, Mercedes Sprinter and I just said “there’s always a back-up plan so just do
    it”, and I did it and I’ve never looked back. This is Wild.
    Wild is a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 144 wheelbase. The van is a two-wheel drive
    not a four-wheel drive despite what people think because of my BF Goodrich
    all-terrain tires and I also have black rhino rims. I wanted the color to be
    monochromatic so black on black. Everything kind of matte that I could
    make matte black. So now let’s go around back where you might not think this is a
    big deal but not all sprinters come with a little step and I love this step. You
    can sit here and chill. Also I have a hitch for a bike rack or anything that I
    want to tow and then my favorite accessory on the outside this ladder
    bioluminesce. I have 200 watts of solar panels on my roof. Those are the Eclipse
    panels by Renergy. They were small enough to fit lengthwise. My Mercedes Sprinter
    did not come with running tracks or running rails. I glued my solar panels on
    with some really strong adhesive and then I put my Thule rack on. A big piece
    of advice for you is come up here and see if you have running rails or the
    tracks. Now let’s go inside, Wild where the beautiful white and blue interior is. The floor is extended. I bought it at a
    specialty store in San Diego. I felt that the laminate floor that I found at any
    other box store, they didn’t have that pretty wood grain. Now you probably think, “why in
    the world would she pick white as her color when it’s a van?” People are out
    adventuring, hiking, swimming, and then coming back in and getting super dirty.
    All of this fabric is stain proof. It’s by Perennials Fabric and it’s called
    acrylic dyed solution. I can spill red wine on it. I can put dirt all over it
    and I can just easily wipe it off so this is my bench that pulls out to a bed
    and then my windows vent so they’re teeny venting windows. I have one right here.
    I have one on the sliding door and then back in the kitchen area. I have extra
    storage under the bench slash bed an extra blanket, towels, and then a water
    bottle you can fill this with hot water and put it with you as you sleep then it
    keeps you warm and now let’s head to the kitchen. This is a quartz countertop and
    this is marble tile. People ask me, “how do you make sure that this doesn’t rattle
    off or shake off?” The marble tile was done with a lot of research so I called
    the company that has the adhesive in the grout and really talked with a customer
    service about what is going to ensure that there is no rattling and that
    there’s no tile falling off when I’m on a dirt road. My faucet extends and it has really good water pressure, watch this. Don’t want to waste water though cuz I only have 15 or
    16 gallons and it lasts me about a week. The other key element that you might not
    think of is that I wanted to make sure I had a really deep sink like you can see.
    The sink is 10 inches deep. I learned the lesson in San Diego that I needed a big
    sink because dishes pile up quite quickly and you’re not always motivated to
    do dishes every night. Oh, more dishes. I fill up my water tank by putting this
    funnel in this little hose and then just fill up your water and the pipe runs all
    the way back here to the water tank which is under the bed. So this is the Ramblewood
    cooktop and it’s one you see in a lot of vans and I don’t have one of those big 5
    gallon propane tanks that you refill. I have the little green canisters that you
    pick up from Walmart for I think it’s like $3- 3.15. This is an isotherm elegants
    fridge. I live off the peanut butter bars coconut water and juice so that’s really
    what all you’re gonna see in here. This is where my trash is and my cleaning
    supplies and my reusable grocery bags. Now everything in the van is white or
    blue and this is where I added some of the blue accents. These are two out of
    three of my light dimmers light switches and then this is where my water pump is.
    Now to the cupboard. This is where I store the silverware. This bin is all of
    my dishes and then pantry items lemons chips bulk items and all of my seasoning.
    Its shelving by the Container Store. It’s called Alpha. It’s super easy to get out.
    It just has clips on the side and you can take this right out and that’s how I
    change out my propane. I have this seamless look that I wanted and so mine
    is an inside lock. What you do is you push it and it locks and then you push
    it in to unlock it. And that leads us to the wet room. It is where I keep my shades for the
    back doors and where I keep the tempur-pedic topper that I cannot live
    without. Now this entire wet room is waterproof. The walls are made out of
    acrylic plastic and then this is my toilet. The toilet is self-contained so
    if I want to take a shower I totally can. I take out the tempur-pedic and I take
    out the toilet and then I have a portable shower that I just step in here
    and rinse off. These might be the most clothes you’re ever gonna see in van life.
    I have hanging clothes then I have more Elfa shelving which this is my active
    wear and my underwear. Everyday clothes more winter clothes and this is my
    bathroom drawer. At the bottom is my shoe storage. This is the sports closet. A
    leash from a surfboard. My camping backpack, camping chairs, yoga mat,
    longboard, wetsuit, hiking poles, have skis up on my Thule rack and then this is all
    my laundry. I also store goggles for swimming, an inflatable stand-up
    paddleboard up, and the Thule rack. I have flippers for the water too. So here’s my Vitamix. I’m a juicer. A bunch of towels. This location is so imperative. You don’t
    think about little things like this but I’ll be washing my face in the morning
    or at night or I’ll be doing dishes cooking and all I have to do is just
    reach up and get a towel from the pile. Backpacks and gym bags. This
    is my junk drawer and then this is another junk drawer. It’s the junk pen
    drawer and scissors drawer. This is a magnet wall and these containers just magnetize to it. This area has my solar control charger,
    my inverter, another light switch, my fridge switch and my voltage meter for
    my batteries. My table stores back here and it’s secured by a bungee strap and
    this is the most adored piece in the van. It’s made by a company San Diego
    Urban Timber. This is olive wood that I picked out.
    It was olive wood that was from a tree cut down in San Diego that would just go
    to the landfill but that company believes in saving all trees from the
    landfill and using it and then Jess the artist filled in the gaps with
    resin. Actually you don’t even hook it, you just slide it down on the base then it swivels all
    around. I sit here and I edit. I eat. I work whatever. Also this raises and
    lowers, if I wanted to. If you are trying to make a big change
    in your life give yourself a deadline and accomplish things in that timeline.
    This is what I did for my first big leap. I gave myself four or five months and each
    month I had a checklist. I made a goal like my apartment lease, take a safety
    course, research gear. That way I didn’t feel pressured and I felt prepared. My
    advice to someone who asks, “what do I do for work?” Honestly you have to figure
    that out yourself. I was just blessed with an NBC News
    career for seven years that transitioned me into having a video production
    company and that’s part of your journey. Write down what you’re passionate about
