    Tanzanian Fishing Villages Turn to Seaweed to Grow Incomes

    August 18, 2019

    Zanzibar, an archipelago of islands off Tanzania, is known for its rich melding of cultures, lush marine ecosystem and majestic coral reefs. But in the last decade, illegal fishing, climate change and an increasing population have taken a toll on Zanzibar’s ecosystem and communities. The size and catch of fish have become smaller. The profit margin of the fishing sector — driven by crude processing methods and informal markets — remains low. Some say Zanzibar is turning into a hotspot of poverty. Nassor Rajab, a fisherman since 1973, says that the number of fishermen has gone up three times, fish species have disappeared, and operating costs have increased. He would like advanced fishing gear, better training in deep water fishing and better access to markets. To take pressure off fishing in the ocean, local residents depend on an important alternative – farming seaweed, a highly demanded raw material for manufacturing medicine and cosmetics. Mohamed Rachid and Zawadi Masudi, seaweed farmers from Mwungoni village, request additional support to increase their productivity, access international markets and increase their revenues. The good news is that local community members like Ramla Talia are already working to conserve the Zanzibar coast and grow the local economy. This effort is supported by a new World Bank program called SWIOFish. Coastal communities are at the core of the program. They focus on tuna, prawns, small pelagics, octopus, reef fisheries and mariculture, such as seaweed farming. They also develop eco-tourism opportunities such as the Jozani Chwaka Park, known for its valuable mangroves and rare Colobus Monkeys. There is hope that good governance, ecotourism, and private sector investment will develop Zanzibar’s fisheries sector in the near future, and then transform livelihoods.

    Eric Bellion, diplômé, skipper et fondateur de COMMEUNSEULHOMME

    August 18, 2019

    Eric Bellion Eric Bellion
    Graduate of the Grande Ecole Programme 2001
    Skipper and founder of Commeunseulhomme Founded in 2014, COMMEUNSEULHOMME promotes the conviction that difference is a great resource As well as the main source of innovation, collective enrichment and personal well-being It’s a natural fruition following 15 years of dedication from skipper. Eric Bellion I chose to do the Vendée Globe because it was really the most mediatised thing I could do To fulfil a conviction that I’d been carrying for 15 years And I really wanted to share it with the widest possible audience So I really said to myself What’s the craziest thing I can do which will allow me to engage with as many people as possible? And it was the Vendée Globe… And from the moment I took that decision, I was in a tunnel of preparation and work To get to the departure point And when the departure arrived, I found myself surrounded by 300,000 people all shouting my name And it was extremely difficult for me because I thought to myself : If I have 300,000 people who are shouting my name in this channel in Sables d’Olonne That means that I’m about to do something that’s really hard During a race like the Vendée Globe, you have a problem every day If not two, or three, or a hundred problems every day That need to be solved and there’s always two options: Either you react like it’s a major drama that will prevent you from succeeding And then you become resentful of the boat and the whole world Or you say to yourself, that’s part of the race And actually this problem will allow me to create something, to innovate and do better And find resources within myself that I don’t usually use The realisation came when I was passing the Kerguelen islands, so in the Indian ocean, I came across a huge storm and I had a problem with the motor that I had to deal with all night And so I wasn’t paying attention to the boat And actually I saw, I felt, that the boat could go much further than I thought And I too could go much further than I thought And in that storm, all my bolts came loose And that’s when I accepted that I was on an adventure To let the boat express itself and to do things my way And instead of running away from a storm and hiding to the south I chose to head north at full speed to go towards the storm that was coming And to surf it as far as possible And that was really a strong decision for me because I was no longer just submitting, I really became the master of my own destiny At the start of the race I was always doing what I’d been taught I kind of copied those who had inspired me and navigated with me on board I copied their way of doing things But then I accepted that I needed to forget everything I’d learnt in a way And to re-learn everything my way with the experiences I was living I had never done a solo race before So for me it was two huge steps into the unknown because I had no reference points So the whole race was really an adventure into the unknown every day I don’t know about you, but I see it as a message What do you think about it? A beautiful rainbow In everyday life, when you tend to be guided along There are very few situations where you really have to get out of your comfort zone and discover extraordinary things I am convinced that we all have infinite resources within ourselves You just have to find situations that allow those resources to come to light And on the Vendée Globe that was the case every day The biggest difficulty on the Vendée Globe is being alone Not being alone in the sense of drinking your coffee alone or eating alone Not that kind of solitude, but solitude in decision-making When you set a course or decide whether to go through a storm There’s no one to tell you oh, yes, Eric, that’s the right decision And so I was afraid all the time, but at the same time It was never a paralysing fear that stopped me from doing what I had to do It’s both an extreme vigilance and extreme carefree attitude I would say to anyone that the VG is an amazing adventure But I think that within a company You can very well create situations where you go and find your resources And the only way is to agree to take a step into the unknown, to go towards difference And the best way to take those steps is to go and talk with others Work, try and live a bit of life with someone who is not like you at all What I take away from this adventure is the fact that I returned much stronger And less afraid because I saw what I was capable of I really saw that I had resources within myself and they’re infinite, I just had to go and find them And I also freed myself from a lot of pressure of the opinions of others I don’t need to please people as much And I have this crazy energy, I’m really tired, my body is tired But my mind is overflowing with energy

    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

    Kitten Dangles From Fishing Net On Mother’s Neck | Animal in Crisis EP31

    August 16, 2019

    Assistant Director : There there there!! PD : Is she there? There.. Is a skinny cat sitting crouched Seems like her body is twined around with something.. A little kitten is with her Upon approaching, she walks away PD : Oh no…! The kitten is helplessly dragged down by the mother cat The kitten is also tied together with the mother cat Informant : I think when the kitten was getting into the mother cat’s arms to take the breast The kitten got stuck in the net too I’m afraid they’re gonna die.. Don’t think they’ll survive PD : Oh my… No… The kitten is dangling from her mom dangerously Meanwhile the mother cat looks into garbage The kitten kicks her feet out of pain After hearing her kitten’s crying, she stopped looking for food Instead, she breastfeeds her kitten But then After sensing something, the mother cat moves to the other place PD : Huh? She goes into that warehouse Informant : We gotta take them and remove the net But she’s too fast to catch up with Also, she hides easily in such broad area While the rescue team comes across in a ship We decided to observe the mother cat After checking nobody’s outside, the mother cat comes out She carefully takes steps due to her kitten ??? Has the kitten escaped from the net? Being startled by the sound, the mother cat comes out Underneath the mother cat Found two kittens She has looked after the other kitten even with the net tied around her neck..? Assistant Director : I found them! The mother cat and her kittens are hiding underneath the piled up buoys How come they end up in such situation..? Informant : Since it’s an island, there are lots of fishing nets The nets to catch the fishes Perhaps the mother cat got stuck in one of them last year while wandering around Many nets are on the street as the village is based around the sea Fishy-smelly nets are the best playground for cats Perhaps the mother cat was caught in one of them while playing with it.. The mother cat was stuck in this net Perhaps when it was torn apart like this At the moment when I cut the huge net where she was stuck inside She ran away, leaving her neck and arms tied with the net The lady found the mother cat caught in the net And hurriedly removed the net around her But the cat ran away before the lady was about to completely remove it A month ago, I found her with a full belly I was like And she gave birth to kittens over there While breastfeeding her kitten, the kitten also was caught in the net too To cause no harm to the kitten The mother can’t even go out for food How painful would it be for both Informant : How can I ignore such poor cats when I can actually see them I’m so heartbroken.. so pitiful With all her heart, the mother cat takes care of her kittens The rescue team has arrived! At that time.. The mother cat comes out from the piled up buoys However The kitten hanging with mom is missing?! Perhaps something’s happened to the kittens?! Checking inside while she’s out Fortunately, the kittens stay inside as they were Vet : Even though the kitten escaped from the net luckily But there’s still a chance where she would get stuck again while being breastfed For more than 20 days, the kitten needs to be breastfed so.. The net is still twined around her body As the net digs into her flesh The wound will be healed above it causing harm to the muscles and blood vessels In the worst case, her skin tissues in the leg will die At the moment when the mother cat goes into the warehouse Blocks every way that links to outside A cage trap and meats are ready The mother cat walks cautiously around the cage Perhaps being starved, she starts to eat the meat And takes a bite of the meat that links to the entrance Informant : Nabi~ We will help you out, relax Successfully rescue two kittens Informant : Oh my.. How’s her neck? Vet : Oh no.. There’s a wound around her neck Clear mark from the fishing net Informant : I thought she was the only kitten.. The one who hung onto the mother cat Informant : Gosh.. They’re finally rescued Informant : I’m relieved now Hope she recovers well and lives happily with her kittens Removes the net first That has tortured her for a year Checks if she has other health issues Vet : As long as the superficial wound is treated well She will be recovered within 2-3 weeks, 1 month for max and lead an ordinary life How’s the kitten’s health condition would be?

    US Navy’s second Ford class supercarrier
    USS John F. Kennedy is now 50% complete as per shipbuilder Huntington Ignalls. The midpoint in construction is reached 14
    months earlier when compared to USS Gerald R. Ford due to the modular approach in construction. Ford class supercarriers are being built to
    replace some of the United States Navy’s existing Nimitz-class carriers. The first ship of this class is Gerald R.
    Ford. Nimitz class carriers have been the face of
    the US Navy and have enabled power projection far off from the US homeland. USS Nimitz, lead ship of Nimitz class was
    commissioned in 1975. The Nimitz class has been able to accommodate
    many new technologies over the decades, but the Nimitz design has now reached its threshold
    and this is where Ford class comes in. USS John F. Kennedy will utilize the latest
    technological advances and incorporate major improvements over the Nimitz class. With USS John F. Kennedy, the US Navy will
    have two ‘state of the art’ supercarrier with another 3 in the pipeline. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes why
    USS John F. Kennedy will be the worst nightmare for Russia & China? Let’s get started. Nimitz-class super-carriers got planes moving
    for takeoff using steam-actuated catapults. The system required a lot of steam piping,
    a large condensate return, and tons of fresh water. They also have a lot of maintenance issues. Plus, with steam-actuation, the majority of
    the force is being transferred to the airplane at the beginning of the stroke—in a jolt. This puts stress on an airframe, and thus
    reduces the lifespan of the expensive planes. USS John F. Kennedy will use the Electromagnetic
    Aircraft Launch System (EMALS). The system uses a linear induction motor with
    an electric current to generate a magnetic field. That field then propels a carriage down a
    track. Since the power delivery is linear, it negates
    the deficiencies of a steam catapult and is more suitable for future aircraft and drones
    like MQ-25 Stingray Tanker Drone. To know more, check the video on the above
    card. Four of these EMALS will be present – two
    will be at the bow will the other two at port-side, enabling simultaneous launch of 4 aircrafts American Nimitz aircraft carriers, the French
    Charles de Gaulle, the Russian Kuznetsov, the Brazilian São Paulo, the Chinese Liaoning,
    and Indian Vikramaditya uses hydraulic arresting system which is a dated system and suitable
    for only traditional carrier based aircraft. USS John F. Kennedy will be fitted with Advanced
    Arresting Gear (AAG). AAG is capable of working with all current
    and projected future carrier-based aircraft, from the lightest unmanned aerial vehicles
    to the heaviest manned fighters. The heart of any aircraft carriers are the
    nuclear reactors which provide the required power. The Ford class has newly designed reactors. 2 Bechtel A1B nuclear reactors will be installed
    on USS John F. Kennedy Each one these are capable of producing 300
    MW of electricity, triple the 100 MW of each Nimitz-class vessel. The huge power supply provides for the leg
    room, required for future expansions like inducting Laser Guns and Electromagnetic Rail
    Guns. US Military has been working on these two
    technologies for some time now. USS John F. Kennedy will have an integrated
    Active electronically scanned array search and tracking – AN/SPY-3 radar system. The dual-band radar (DBR) utilizes a multi-tier,
    dual-band tracker, which consists of a local X band tracker, a local S band tracker, and
    a central tracker. The central tracker merges the two signals
    to provide a comprehensive situational awareness. The X band tracker is optimized for low latency
    to support its mission of providing defense against fast, low-flying missiles, while the
    S band tracker is optimized for large area coverage. This new system has no moving parts, therefore
    minimizes maintenance & manning requirements. USS John F. Kennedy has a newly designed deck. It has 3 aircraft elevators that are more
    efficient when compared to 4 in Nimitz class supercarriers. Reduction in 1 aircraft elevators has freed
    up space which will enable faster maneuvering of aircraft in the deck. The island is also smaller and farther aft
    than the Nimitz‐class supercarriers. With this space for flight deck operations
    and aircraft maintenance is increased. Ford class design has implemented automation
    in a big way, which will result in solid gains in operational efficiency. USS John F. Kennedy will be capable of generating
    30% more flight missions per day than Nimitz‐class carriers. This will make the supercarrier a deadly adversary.

    Sail boat Plumbing DIY (Replace Copper Pipes w/ PEX for fresh water)Patrick Childress Sailing #27

    today on Brick House… a big bucket of
    plumbing worms! Hello welcome aboard Brick House. This video
    is about one little plumbing project a burst forty one-year-old copper water
    tubing and how that little tubing now turns into a big bucket of worms because
    every other piece of plumbing that you look at surrounding the project then
    falls apart who would have thought that I would need all these extra supplies.
    what started this whole plumbing project was down here underneath the galley sink
    both of these red tubes just the other day were copper. Brick House is 42 years
    old so it was no big surprise that the hot water pipe finally let go and was
    just flooding all over the place. I just happened to have a coil of PEX
    P E X which stands for polyethylene cross-linked that’s the type of
    polyethylene that they use for making this water tubing I happen to pick that
    up in an island called Mayotte and we had it on board so now that we’re here in
    Tanzania I was able to break it out and run new tubing. the problem is even in
    Mayotte, and here in Tanzania they don’t have the proper fittings that I need to
    make the connections. that seems impossible but so far I haven’t been
    able to find. Way in the back here in the quarter berth underneath the bunk is the
    hot water tank and the main connections for all of the plumbing. so this used to
    be of course copper and there is a copper pipe extended down here these are
    both the hot water pipes and I was able to cut the pipe and leave about a three
    inch extension to slip the PEX over the copper extension, clean it up and use
    3M 5200 and several clamps to clamp it down. I waited 24 hours before
    fully clamping it down and so far we have no leaks. I feel very lucky
    although the copper tubing up here which is connected directly to the hot water
    tank has a patina on it it’s still in very good solid condition it’s the
    copper tubing that was resting on the floor that
    had been deteriorated and caused a problem. and now that I’m down and way
    back in here I can see that this nylon drain is very deteriorated and it’s just
    dripping in the slightest, so it has to be taken out and changed and that’s the
    way plumbing goes with me. If I do one little job everything around it falls
    apart and now I’m in four days of work, unexpected work. SO I just happened to
    have a barbed connection that would fit inside of the PEX and actually clamp in
    place with two or maybe three clamps and that was perfect for making the
    connection from the water hose from the faucet. however when I went to connect to
    the cold water line coming from the faucet that nut from the faucet just
    disintegrated and so another bucket of worms. Rather than trying to fix the hose
    from the faucet we just decided to get a whole new faucet and another bucket of
    worms. yeah so now I can move on to the head repairs and make those connections
    and what a surprise another big disaster there was just a
    tiniest drip at the handle shutoff for the sink drain. so when I went to check
    the handle and move it just a little bit it broke off in my hand
    oh geez…so I put a bung on the outside, take the valve off. This valve is
    only about eight years old we’ve had valves on here that were like 35 years
    old and never had a problem with them and we changed them just because they
    were so old. So definitely don’t buy Chinese made valves! SO now the big
    problem is trying to find the same size valve here in Tanzania.
    So now along with the shutoff valve at the through-hole we have a big
    tremendous leak at the connections going up to the sink. The PEX to the copper
    join is just fine so everything above this point has to
    now be replaced! So we left to go into the big city with
    our long list of valves and parts and things, and the need for a new faucet at
    the galley sink. Easy for them to say they haven’t been working on my plumbing
    project but also in Swahili Safari that’s a new word for me means journey so we called Uber for a tuk-tuk or for
    a little more money you can get a car But tuks tuks are a lot more fun. So we
    walked into this first store they don’t have any thru hull shutoffs to help
    us out. They don’t have any of the fittings that we need. The only thing
    that would be close that they have is hanging on the wall and they’ve never
    had anything like that in stock and they’re not willing to cut the sample
    off of the wall even though they have no use for it. So onward we push rather than
    calling Uber again we take the first tuk tuk that comes along and he wants
    five thousand shillings to take us where we want to go and we negotiate him down to three thousands shillings which would be about forty four cents more than what
    we paid our first tuktuk driver that’s okay that this is a total amount of a
    dollar thirty two cents but I hold the money out in front of him to make sure
    that he and I both agree on the amount as far too many times these tuktuk
    drivers are the same as taxi cab drivers in New York City, Suva Fiji, Madagascar or
    anywhere else in the world. You agree on a price, you get to where you’re going,
    then all of a sudden they have raised eyebrows as though you’re not giving
    them enough money so when that happens nowadays after we already agreed and we
    hold out the money I just give them what we agreed on and then walk away. there’s
    nothing more to talk about thank you have a good day so we go into the most promising
    hardware store and go through our whole list of the parts that we need and
    unfortunately this man shakes his head more no than yes and so the only thing
    I’ll have to do is to check a box of stainless steel hose clamps with the
    magnet and make sure that the screw that tightens down the hose clamp is not
    magnetic, so that these are suitable for use on the sailboat. good to go and off
    to the next store. hopefully we can get a faucet just like this one for the galley
    sink. So we thought we’d stroll around the only upscale mall in Dar Es Salaam now.
    All we need is a new faucet like this one for the galley so I go down all of
    these faucets that are on display and what a nice surprise most of them are
    stainless steel and this one will do. In Tanzania its a three-position handshake.You start out normal go up high and then back down to the normal position again
    unless you’re dealing with international businessmen on a much different scale
    then it would just be a conventional one position handshake. So we finally got
    back to the boat and I could get back to work and all I could do with the shutoff
    valve was clean up the broken handle area on the valve body and then fill it
    up with epoxy glue, wait 24 hours and then put it back in place so it’ll
    function just fine there won’t be any leaks but we
    certainly will have a new valve on order. And of course there is a leak at the at
    one join underneath the sink but that was easy to fix it just took a couple or
    O–rings for spacers in there and these o-ring packages are invaluable they come
    in metric or imperial. I’ll just run through a couple of things here to show
    how I cut pipes and glued things together and was able to run through
    some of these long difficult reaches underneath the floor of our boat to get
    that tubing through. To cut the tubing use this little tubing
    cutter. You just open it up enough to slide the tubing in and then just
    tighten it down a bit until it’s not real snug but not loose at all, because
    it has to cut just a little snug. You’ll get a feel for it give it a turn
    I’ll give it two turns and then tighten it a little more and give it some more
    turns. I mean it’s not even a sixteenth of a turn that I’m giving it and then it
    all comes undone with a nice perfect circle sometimes on larger tube cutters
    there’ll be a little thing that you can pop out it’s a like a wedge shaping and
    put inside the tubing and twist it to help clean up any sharp points now. And then
    to prepare the tubing for the pecs to be glued and clamped on I took 220 grit
    paper sand the heck out of this where to get all the old deterioration of the
    copper off and then followed it up with 400 grit paper and then I used acetone
    on everything to make sure that there’s no grease. But this way there would be a
    nice tooth for the 3M 5200 to stick to although 3M 5200 does not stick very
    well or if at all to the PEX it’ll act as a filler for any voids that might be
    around the tubing tacks join. Another way of cutting is to use the dremel tool
    which I had to do way down inside the aft cabin. You know by the water heater there
    was a couple of places I just couldn’t get that tubing cutter in place 3m
    adhesive 5200 fast cure is what I used to make the join before clamping tightly.
    By the end of the day, after running the hot and cold tubing to the galley and
    then another very long hot tube all the way forward to the head my arms were cut
    scraped and badly bruised. It was a tough day and overall though in some areas it
    was easy to shove that PEX through all on its own, other places it just would
    not go from one small hole in a bulkhead to the next small hole in a bulkhead so
    I had to use this electricians tape and it’s a very long flat
    piece of metal on the spool that you can wind up just like a fishing reel it has
    a little hole through the end here which I put a piece of string and then drilled
    a hole through the end of the PEX tubing so I could shove this into the pecs and
    have this line coming out of each hole in the tubing tie it up and then reel it
    back through that long run so this is really good for just shoving out from
    getting into tight places attaching something to the very end and then
    bringing it all back through. Okay so just imagine this is the barbed connector
    coming out of the top of the thruhull valve. If teflon tape is not wrapped
    around the threads and making the join into the valve it is guaranteed to leak
    so the teflon tape should be wrapped around the threads about five times is
    what I normally do and in a direction so when it is screwed into the valve
    it’ll be tightening WITH the wraps rather than pulling the wraps off of the
    threads of the connector. We don’t need to put the teflon tape on the connector
    going up to the water hose to the faucets because those have o rings;
    rubber o-rings to make the seal. Well we have everything back together
    again there’s no leaks underneath the sink in the head the thru hull is
    patched up and back in this proper position underneath the drain in the
    head. We have the new mixing valve ( faucet), and we have the new mixing valve ( faucet) in the head. We have
    three out of four old copper tubes replaced with the PEX. We have the new
    mixing valve ( faucet) at the galley sink, no leaks anywhere in that area so we’re in very
    good shape. It certainly has not done to ABYC American Boat and Yacht Council
    Specifications but it’s the best that we can do out here in the field.
    Certainly it’s on my list of things to keep an eye out for it is PEX to copper
    tubing joints and also of course will be mail ordering a new shutoff valve for
    that thruhull underneath the sink in the head. Hey, but thanks a lot for
